There’s nothing quite like the recommendation of a friend or loved one when it comes to finding a new ice cream shop to try. Word-of-mouth recommendations can be incredibly powerful, and when it comes to ice cream, it’s no different.
Imagine you’re out with a group of friends on a hot summer day, and someone suggests stopping at their favorite ice cream shop. They rave about the creamy, hand-churned flavors and the cozy, welcoming atmosphere. You can’t resist the temptation and decide to give it a try. And, as it turns out, they were right – the ice cream is incredible and the shop has a great vibe.
And that’s exactly what we are doing here! We asked our community for their favourite ice cream in Gran Canaria and here are their answers. Right away we can see that not everyone shares the same opinion, so try them yourself and share your own favourite in the comments!

What’s your favourite ice cream on Gran Canaria?
I vote for Mammamia and then my second choice would be Dassie.
Heladeria Peña la Vieja is still as good as last year! I think the locals agree with me- just take a look at the queues on weekends!
I tried Mammamia, Dassie and Peña la Vieja and I spoke with the staff, I checked the machines when possible and the ingredients… They’re terrible, no exceptions or excuses. I’m looking for good ice cream too.
