It is really hard to choose which gelati to have. The number of flavours is vast, and every one we tried was delicious. It is often really busy around 7pm as people have gelati for dessert, so you may have to wait a bit. However there are usually 4 or 5 people serving, so it moves along nicely.

Large variety of ice cream and sorbet with pictures of what it looks like on the wall behind. I tried the Apple sorbet and coconut, my girlfriend had mango sorbet and banana ice cream, all tastes great. If I could award 4.5 stars I would we've visited a lot of ice cream vendors and this isn't quite as good as... More

This Gelati bar have a monopoly on Gelato in Port Douglas and they know it. Every Gelato bar I have been to will offer a free sample - not at Shakes! They even have a sign up to tell you not to bother to even ask. They are extremely expensive and tight with their serves. In Cairns you would get... More

When you walk up to Shakes you can see the crowds gathering and why not, who doesn't love a delicious gelato on a warm day. The gelati is delicious and there are many flavours to pick from. We went there every day we stayed in Port (sometimes twice in a day)

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
