Delicious ice-cream with a wide variety of flavours to choose from. Sizeable portions. Bit pricier than I'd usually pay but totally worth it!

Shakes Gelati bar offers a wide range of Gelatis and sorbets! Great to see sorbets offered for those who can't tolerate milk. Separate clean scoops are used for sorbets to ensure no contamination by milk. Helpful and friendly service, which is prompt despite how busy the place can be. Don't miss it, you'll regret it if you do!

A wonderful lot of different flavours. Tried a double scoop and was impressed with the quality of the ice cream. Its billed as Gelato but its slightly different to the Italian version. I enjoyed it and its a great place to stop to cool down.

Great gelato. Stayed in port Douglas for 6 days and had gelato 5 times. Truely yummy. Great flavours. Locorice, mango, passion fruit, raspberry, strawberry and many many more. Only down fall is that they close around 9.30- 10pm. But that's everything in port Douglas not just this gelati shop. Must try.

For gelato it was refreshing on a hot day. Pricier than expected and they only take cash. Plenty of seats to sit outside.

Three nights in a row... The gelato is that good. I had the Mint Choc Swirl every time, my son dabbled with Strawberry Cream then came over to my side of the gelato fence and Hubbie tried the Hazelnut, Macadamia and Tiramisu flavours and raved about them all. No pretentious flavours here. Just the ones we love.

Really nice dairy free sorbet and also different flavours to choose from which is unusual as an allergic person. Does only take cash, bit of a shame since card is a lot easier when travelling. Little bit to pricy to go there everyday..
