Love this place, which is another of our PD traditions. My only complaint is that they don't let you try, which is especially cruel given how yummy all the flavours are. Oh well, just have to try them all anyway...

Be prepared to line up, this place is popular, why, it is just beautiful creamy Gelati (cassata and rum an raisin). My wife reports the sorbet were yummy. After a good meal at the Tin Shed, walk down Macrossan street to Shakes, the ladies serving are fun and the food is yum.

Seriously some of the best gelato we have ever tried. Subtle, yet amazing flavour and quality!! Toasted coconut works well with the Maple and Pecan flavour! Lovely to see a family business that values good food!

After considerable and comprehensive research I can confidently say that shakes is by far the best gelato bar in Port Douglas. The range of flavours, service and price has it streets ahead of the other options. The storefront is trendy, well presented and clean and the staff are knowledgable and friendly.. The flavours and product range is extensive and well... More

Every time we're in Port Douglas we always head to the Gelati Bar and are never disappointed. I always go for the Panacotta Gelati and the rest of the family usually opt for something different each time. This trip to PD was just myself and my wife - so we teased our teenage sons on Skype by taking them to... More

Ok so I've written a few reviews on Shakes but it can't be helped, I keep discovering new delishiousness. Mine and my husbands new favorite desert is the Caramel Sunday, which has creamy vanilla ice cream, warm caramel sauce, whipped cream and smashed up Crunchie chocolate bar on top, and at a great value, cheaper then a desert in a...

When it's your second night in a row spending $20 on ice creams and your 3 year olds ice cream breaks in half and falls into her lap, do not charge 50c for a cup so she can continue eating it!! Embarrassing!! Some friendly smiles and occasional taste test would be nice too

In 5 days, we managed to get a gelato once. They closed at 9.30, usually we haven't finished dinner. We rolled up at 9.35 there are 10 people wanting to buy Gelati and they just refuse to serve anyone because it's after 9.30am.
