The best ice cream and sorbet we've ever had. Dairy free chocolate sorbet is incredible. Even had option for mini double so we could have 2 flavours without bursting. Definitely worth going as often as able when in Port Douglas.

My husband & I enjoyed an sorbet most afternoons over a week. Each time, every flavour tried was delicious! My personal faves were the apple sorbet & the coconut & lime sorbet. If you're a shake man like my husband, you'll love the extra thick shakes... 3 scoops of your choice of flavours in a thick, rich and luxurious shake!... More

our children chose to get dessert here each night rather than have dessert in the restaurant we were eating in! Amaxing range of sorbets and dairy icecreams.

The best ice cream/sorbet I have ever had. This place just gets better. A trip to Port Douglas is not complete without a visit infact your day is not complete in PD without a visit.

Best we've had! My wife cannot have dairy & there were lots of choices for her. There were long queues every evening & when you try it you'll know why.

Lovely, family run business. Great gelati with many flavours (I recommend the apple sorbet). Gets busy from around 7-7:30pm, but understandably so.

YUM YUM YUM this would have to be the be place to have dessert in Port Douglas. Thanks everyone at Shakes. Just love strolling along Macrossan Street after the dinner for a cold, yummy treat. It just finishes off my day in Port Douglas nicely. I have a very soft spot for the Vanilla ice cream, the Passionfruit Sorbet and... More

After dining at some of the Macrossan St restaurants, went here 3 nights for an ice cream. Everyone was happy.

This little family run Gelati bar was amazing, wish we had have sampled this a little earlier in our stay in Port Douglas! So many amazing flavours to choose from - fave was the Peanut Butter flavour!

We stopped here after lunch when we felt like Italian ice cream for dessert. There are so many flavours to choose from that I was glad you could pick a few flavours to try. I especially like the sorbet and the mango and lemon ones are always my favourite. You can have either a cone or a cup one scoop,... More
