The ice cone is a bad industrial cone. I could not finish the ice cream in it, too bad. The ice creams are wonderfully presented, very good and original. The staff is efficient though there are too many people to have the time to taste the perfumes for choosing like in other gelatarias. Still a must do in Budapest.

Love their ice-cream, it is something you should definitely try. Despite the fact that there is almost always a long queue, it is totally worth. I tried strawberry one, you can choose different ones of course. One costs 500 huf. When I go back to Budapest I will definitely have some more.

The best ice-cream I have ever tasted. The technique used for the rose shaped ice-cream is fascinating to watch. The system used in the store is very efficient which is great as it is a very busy place. Staff are very friendly. Must visit for people on the city.

The flower ice cream they serve at Gelarto Rosa is amazing, beautiful and delicious. Next to St. Stephen's Basilica, it is a lovely experience for an unforgettable ice cream.

Ice cream that looks like a flower, what's not to love about it. Great location too, right by the cathedral

Really fun and cute gelato shop in Budapest with excellent flavors and presentation. They had a gluten free cone as well and were knowledgeable about allergens. We really enjoyed the gelato and the staff was very friendly.

A must visit if you are near St Stephen's Basilica. The gelato is delicious and beautifully presented. I ate here on two consecutive days and they changed a number of the flavours between the days.

Love this idea! They are doing rose shaped ice cream flavors picked by yourself. Got to say, best ice cream I've ever tasted. Visited there twice.

Description
Located in the center of Budapest (Basilica), Gelarto Rosa is THE BEST ice cream in this town! Owner, the charismatic Niki Szokron studied the secrets of old Italian family recipes straight from the source in Italy and brought it back to her city. The philosophy behind it: fresh and true quality ingredients, old Italian traditions, modern technic and as final touch, add artistic creativity.The pretty ice cream girls at Niki's shop "create" each and every portion or cone as a unique artwork using ice cream as art material. It's simply amazing! Don't miss Peti (the barista) great Italian style coffee, and have real French macaroon from Juliette McAron.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
