Visited a VERY VERY busy place at 5 PM. Our party of 5 all had different things since the menu is varied in every way, serving Italian as well as ethnic dishes w/traditional sandwiches, club sandwiches, varied pastries and of course the ice cream.

These are some of the best ice cream shops in town, and the biggest. Great selection, very good service, usually busy. Like most Barranquilla restaurants there are tables inside and outside.
