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.

My friends and I stood in line for about ten minutes (to me it seems it is always popular as I went back the day after my initial visit and once again it was a long line) and once we got to the front we were told they didn't do 'taste testers'... I found that ridiculous to be honest, it... More

Tasting the local icecream is a must-do for us when travelling. Shakes matches it with anywhere else we've been for quality and value. We did try the other icecream in town, but Shakes won hands down and received a daily visit from us during our stay in Port Douglas.

We loved this place. You could choose from icecream or gelato or sorbet. I had mango, Yum. Lots of choice, very difficult to choose. Nice and clean.

Really tasty gelati with a great selection of flavours and options. Good value for money and appears to be a favourite in Port Douglas. Only problem was that I had trouble trying to work out which flavours to have as there were so many choices. Nice!

We have been going to Port Douglas for 15 years. Ever since Shakes came on the scene it has been our favourite ice cream place ever. We walk up most evenings to get an ice cream treat. The service is fantastic and the ice creams and sorbets are beautiful. My favourite has to be the burnt caramel. Family favourites include... More
