From a person who lives in Argentina, let me tell you this is the best Ice Cream you will EVER try, trust me. I just can't explain how good it is, not only the ice cream but the chocolates are delicious too. The people who...work there are extremely nice people and the environment is beautiful. Overall, if you ever come to Argentina, you NEED to try Rapanui's Ice Cream.More

There are no shortages to heladerías (ice cream shops) in Buenos Aires, and we went to a few, but this was the best one! The chocolate ice-cream is rich, creamy, and heavenly for true chocolate lovers like myself. I even went back the next day...to get another serving as I couldn’t stop thinking about it! One note of caution for chocolate lovers: The chocolate caliente (hot chocolate drink) here is not good. It’s more milky than chocolate-y. It’s too sweet, and frankly, tastes like the hot chocolate you get out of vending machines. So, go here for the ice-cream, but not for the hot chocolate! :)More

Decided to stop over in this location after a long walk to cool down. The shop is located inside a beautiful historic building. The ice cream was superb. Very light and creamy. It's also around the corner from a beautiful recoleta park as well

The place is very stylish and every single touch is special. Chocolates are amazing, as well as coffee (with chocolate drageas) and homemade ice cream, just awesome...I’d recommend to try frambuesa nevada (raspberry and marshmallow) and dulce de leche de cabra (dulce de leche with...goat milk, just special!). Prices are just similar to other coffee and ice cream shops. They also sell different alfajores with interesting flavors...I just can recommend!!More

Very very good gelato. They had about 7 different flavors of just dulce de leche! Our tour guide recommended this place, and said she thought it was the best in Buenos Aires (there are various locations)

I like this particular location because it has an outdoor garden. The ice cream is excellent, coffee too. When school is in session, it's hard to get in because of the schools in the area. Fun seeing the kids though.
