I had a super thick shake. It cost me $9.50 and it was far from super thick! Waste of money if you ask me. Not very friendly either.

3 large scoops of icecream into milk of your choice mixed in front of you. Thick, cold with large drinking straw to go. Worth a visit if you LOVE thickshakes 😊 Tried choc chip. Nice....

As a ice cream connoisseur, we came across Shakes Gelati Bar and I'm so glad we did. The Cassata is the absolute best I have tasted. Even beats the homemade one I make. Whenever we ate out this was our desert afterwards. Ice cream is home made by a Sicilian family. Great variety of flavours. Highly recommended

Fantastic selection of gelato and sorbets! Great quality and value! We are planning a return visit or three while we are here! Can highly recommend the Choc Mint and Choc Hazelnut gelati!

This place was great on our stay at PD! So many flavours to choose from but my favourite was the toasted coconut. Serves are reasonable but it was slightly more expensive than back in Melbourne - but you expect that from Port Douglas. It certainly was tasty - and everything is made locally which is great!

We have visited Shakes on a couple of occasions while staying in Port Douglas. At first we weren't overly impressed with the 'We don't provide samples' sign, but thought the range looked good enough and we would give it a go. First time, we got lucky with some ok tasting flavours. Second time, like another reviewer, we got strawberry sorbet... More

Great for an afternoon treat. Lots of flavours to choose from. My favorite the lemon but their new salted caramel is really good too. The coffee one packs a punch. Not cheap. $6.90 gets you 2 generous scoops in a cup. But definitely worth it.
