This place has signs saying its 30 years old, and is clearly getting long in the teeth. Took a while to be served as a couple of the staff were more interested with talking with their friend who popped in behind the counter. When I eventually did get served I wasn't asked if I wanted a different flavour for the... More

Not the best of service but we just love the ice cream! Got to only go for the premium. Not cheap though....

After reading some positive reviews we thought we'd give it a go. We must have caught it on a bad day because it was very average at best, and borderline poor. The ice cream we ordered was from the premium range and it was gross. It was incredibly sickly and weird tasting, and not really like the flavours they were... More

I'd read some negative reviews about this place so was abut weary. I think the place looks a bit dated but the ice cream was very nice. We knew (thanks to trip advisor) that they did not accept international cards so went prepared with cash. In terms of price, it was on par with what we are used to.

Well, I have to say I walked out the first time as the service was so slow, looked around the area for another place to get an ice cream, alas, no such luck so decided to go back. I was served reasonably quickly the second time, however the person who I was clearly with was ignored after I was served... More

We stopped here after our meal. 2 small ice creams $6.00 rip off, the went to pay using our international eftpos/Visa card and it was declined because they DONT ACCEPT INTERNATIONAL CARDS OF ANY TYPE, just cheap and don't want to pay the fees associated with this Type of transactions, so I had to stand out the front of the...

Loved how the ice cream had real bits of fruit and real fruit flavours in them. I had the apple crumble ice cream and it was the best ice cream I have ever tasted. We also tried the ambrosia which had marshmallow and berry's in it and the banana again with real bits of banana. Definitely worth a visit while... More

The ice cream is great, and they will rent you bikes for the day at a way cheaper rate than anywhere else. We even got a free ice cream when we returned the bikes. This place rules!

In a resort town and they close at 5! Finally was there in afternoon. Asked to taste something, they don't give samples. Tried choc chunk....no taste. After I said it had no taste his was response was, you ordered the grocery store brand and not the premium, which costs more. We won't be back.

excellent milk shakes, although I would stay with the thicker style if possible, again not cheap, but nothing in Rotorua is cheap.
