They say it is made with only fruit, no lactose or gluten, BUT when you look at the label it says "it may contain gluten, lactose..." Come on, if they cannot guarantee their manufacturing process to avoid cross contamination, that is not safe for Celiacs.

This was honestly the best ice cream I have ever had! There are so many flavours and so much choice, all delicious and so unusual! Plenty of seats to sit and enjoy your ice cream and never felt rushed to leave. A must visit if in Rio!

Really good ice cream!! They have a different selection of flavors, really brazilian, it is really difficult to choose only one. My favorite is "nozes e ovos moles"

Every time that I go to Rio I must have at least an ice cream cone at Mil Frutas. Creamy, not too sweet, fresh. I tried Argentinian, Italian, American ice creams but this is the best! I am an ice cream lover. Try Brigadeiro and Doce de Leite Mesclado.

First, I got the manga. Second, I got the brigadeiro. The staff is really friendly. They even have free wifi. They accept credit cards. It's a nice place to sit down.

The ice cream is lovely here, if you are near by this is a must place to go. Recommend by a local to us and can definitely see why!

A real disappointment. Not only it does not have so many flavours, but also the price is exorbitant for what they offer. The quality of the ice cream is not above the average. I do not know the rest of the people who give opinions, how they compare this icecream, but used to argentinian and italian ice cream this is... More

Here you will find good ice cream and a lot of fruity flavors, but too expensive. The quality of the ice cream is good and the store has been around for many many years.
