The best gelato, but dont expect a free sample

This place is a little unusual as you cant actually see the gelato, there are pictures of it on the back wall, but the taste makes up for it, it is amazing, The only downside of this place is that they don't do sample tastings, which is just silly when you have people around for 2 weeks and who... read more

We visited the Shakes Gelati bar several times during our stay in Port Douglas. The gelati were great and my favourite pistachio was always available! The service was always prompt and very friendly. When you are there make sure to have a gelati, or two, or three.......

We had a few gelaties from this wonderful shop. You must try the salted caramel gelati, it is delicious.

Shakes Gelati Bar is just a storefront counter on the main street in Port Douglas. There's a huge photo display wall behind the counter of the various flavors, plus a few handwritten additions on signs next to it. The prices aren't bad, considering what I've seen at other ice cream shops in Australia. I tried the gianduja, which was excellent.... More

Every night in Port Douglas my family stopped by at Shakes Gelati bar and tasted a different variety of Gelati. Sooo delicious but expensive! Nevertheless, it was our first choice over other ice cream options in the city.

Always quality and delicious ice-cream/gelato! My favourite is the white chocolate! Reasonably priced too! However a few times have tried to get ice-cream after dinner, and the place has been closed.

I can't recommend this place enough. Delicious ice cream, with some unusual flavours. The staff couldn't be more friendly, and always up for a chat while they work. Worth walking down Macrossen St to visit Shakes.

I had a great ice cream at shakes, served in a cup as I am coeliac. When mentioning this, it was so pleasing to see the lady serving go and wash the scoop and then check to see that I had chosen a flavour from a new tub. She advised me that in order to avoid cross contamination, that they... More
