Average service

Whilst you can never go wrong with lashings of ice cream and melted chocolate, less than average service definitely makes for a worse experience than necessary. We found most of the staff in checkered shirts (managers I'm assuming) were blunt, unhelpful and seemed to be less and less interested... read more

Ordered a tea, something simple, had to wait over 25 minutes for it to arrive after asking the waitress to check for me and by the time i received it, my friend had already finished her dessert. Never Again!!

If you like dessert, waffles, chocolate, and ice cream this is the place to come. Beware your eyes will be bigger than your Belly so sharing is a good idea. They do have GF friands which are nice but not as decadent as the other options. The Carmel and Hot Chocoate is great as well. Different to the other chain... More

My partner and I went to Bay Vista for dessert, following lunch on Australia Day. While the restaurant was busy, service was very fast. We waited only about 5 mins after ordering for our desserts to be served. The food tasted great and the servings were generous to say the least! I ended up leaving a third still on my... More

Went there today for some dessert, our third time. previously times have been nothing but great experiences but today, we ordered the cookies and cream cake which was delicious until halfway through we found a long blonde hair entangled in the actual cake. none of us had blonde hair so I can only assume it came from whoever cooked or...

Wow !! a must if you like Ice Cream, a very popular place anytime day or night so be prepared to wait for a table!. A very wide range of desserts but the Ice cream bowl for sharing seems to be everyone's favourite. Situated on the main road across from the beach.

I am not a big sweet eater, but I make an exception when we visit here. Usually it is with a group of friends that we find ourselves here. Upstairs is much quieter than downstairs so a good option if available. Your choices are seemingly endless. It's not cheap, but neither is the quality of the food. Great celebration place!

We had our dessert there today after our lunch from Hurricane. It's not even five minutes since we sit down, about 3 staff was coming to our table, and one of them told me we are not allowed to eat any of our food in the premises. Because I have a bottle of nearly empty coke and a container of... More

The owner/manager was incredibly hospitable and nice, and the service was quick considering how packed it was. The food was quite good, however not worth the price. My hot chocolate came out cold, and there was so much whipped cream, that tasted rather canned. Nothing special for it's price. Noise level was loud, but expected, despite this there was still...
