No doubt this is a good place with a terrace away from the heavy traffic of the port, with distant view of the Mansa bay. They prepare frozen coffee with very good ingredients like fresh wiped cream if you want. Very good ice cream. We love menta granizada. Mint chocolate chips ice cream.

As good as in Buenos Aires or Rio de Janeiro. For me it was a novelty beacuse they are offering ice cream for diabetics, which is my case.

Lots of flavors at this italian style gelateria on the fun strip of shops and restaurants in la barra. We had the dulce de leche ice cream and there is also a Coffee shop here for those that need a caffeine boost. Fun place to go after lunch or dinner. Has views on the ocean.

I went along with some friends to enjoy icecreams and frappes. The blending machine was broken, the staff uniforms grubby and the staff were not very friendly. After settling for icecreams which I thought were expensive compared to other locations around the town, we sat outside. The table was dirty and broken which resulted in me dropping my icecream -...

Ice cream from Freddo is very tasty and fresh! The best flavor is dulce de leche granizado! It is also an interesting meeting point!

Freddo is the best ice cream in the world. I love the chocolate with almonds, the sambayon and the marron glace. Try any taste; they are all delicious.

We frequented this place often in the past. However after not having been there in a while and deciding a few days ago to have a Mocha Freddo there, I was really shocked. The prices have gone through the roof (not that they were ever cheap) the tables filthy and sticky and service slow as usual and the bathrooms in... More

Let's be clear: Freddo makes a very good ice cream But I have two problems with it: firstly it is very sweet. I have never tasted an ice cream with more sugar in it; Secondly it is really expensive: nearly 5 USD for the basic one. So, I will avoid it in the future.

Thank Dahoui
