Movenpick is a great place for ice cream! My favourite part is the fact that it's open fairly late, so you can visit after dinner. The ice cream is a little pricey, but the flavour and variety is worth it!

Although there are many different ice cream and gelato places on the esplanade and a couple blocks over, I'm glad we wandered over to this one. I savored every bite of my banana split. Definitely a winner with very courteous staff.
