We stopped here for an ice cream but ended up having crepes, I had the forest fruits and my wife had one with cherries with a couple of glasses of wine. Crepes were drizzled in chocolate sauce and dollops of ice cream with the fruits. Absolutely delicious and we hope to return for an ice cream next time. Very reasonable... More

We came here several times on our holiday to lanzarote. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food great and reasonable prices. Locals hang out here too which gives the place a really nice welcoming vibe. Worth the small detour from the seafront to find it

If you like Ice Cream, and who doesn't, this is the place to try the most delicious range of flavours either in cones, or in tubs. We started with a single scoop in a cone then moved up to two scoops on a tub, and for the last few days have made our way through the full range of flavours... More
