Went with some friends. We tried elote, banana and strawberry flavor. Prices are just right. They have nice tablets at street where you could sit and relax.

I think this was entirely too sweet for my palate although the flavour combinations were interesting. We tried mango, chocolate and mantecado (vanilla with cinnamon). Perhaps other flavours might be better? Service was good and it is a cute place to sit in the evening.

Advised to come here, we had coconut and strawberry sorbets. There were just the salvation of the hot day and so natural and tasty. Absolutely recommended. Good location and fair price.

This is a favorite for their natural fruit sorbets in all the local flavors, from coconut, mango , lime and watermelon to corn, guava and guanábana. Ok, there is a kind of vanilla (mantecada) and chocolate, but why have those when so many exotic choices...More

A nice selection of sorbets and ice creams in a nice location on a stylish street. We had coconut and mango and they were both delicious. Service was polite and attentive. Good value for money as well.

Bad place with bad service. Not worth it. Expensive bad ice creams badly served. Not even a check was provided but just a verbal amount. Requested a sample as any ice cream shop offers and it was denied.

Try the tamarindo, limon and chicozapote. Beware, they are too sweet, but is it beautiful to sit there and see Merida life happening
