Rocambolesc offers you the chance to try the genius of the Roca brothers - owners of one of the world's best restaurant - in the form of innovative ice creams.

If you live on planet Earth, it's probably not necessary to mention that Girona is where you'll find a place considered, more than once, the best restaurant in the world: El Celler de Can Roca. The owners, the three Roca brothers, are totally committed to the city as well as being some of its most famous sons, and the fact that El Celler is not within the reach of all budgets gave them the idea to create somewhere that everybody, or almost, could at least try some of their desserts. They wanted to rescue the concept of the ice cream cart but rules are rules, and in the end they opened a workshop on C/ Santa Clara, which makes clients feel like Charlie in the chocolate factory. But let's talk about what's really important here: the ice creams. They serve six flavours that change with the seasons – the latest concoctions of lavender and coconut, and a mix of green vegetables, have been a big hit – and stock a 'wardrobe' of tubs so that you can take your cool treat away, which range from more or less conventional flavours, such as chocolate with green tea, to real innovation such as toast ice cream with olive oil. A really unmissable experience.
