“Beautiful gelato! Delicious waffles!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great option after a day of sight seeing or a late night snack! Good variety and selection. Service can be quite slow when crowded, so be prepared to wait a while.

“Yummy but too big and pricey for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went there twice - the first time we had little servings for the kids and paid about $8 for both. The second time we had massive servings (despite asking for two small kids cups both times) and paid about $12. It was far too much for small children and we had to take it off them. Service was the worst we had in Queenstown - not bad, just not as happy as I would have thought for an icecream shop. Worth one visit but plan to share a small cup if you have little ones.

“Passion Fruit sorbet - be still my heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Don't tell my mean trainer, but, the Passion Fruit Sorbet at Lick is out of this world. And, we have stopped there every day for a scoop (or two).

“some of the best gelato ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

the gelato was amazing, and for such a small selection of flavours the choices were exquisite and delicious. the service was very attentive and we were offered several free tastes while we tried to choose between the delicious flavours. they had some of the most interesting and unique flavours i've seen in a while, and the price and serving size were very reasonable indeed.

I was disappointed that I only had a chance to eat here once!

“Milo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

They serve a fabulous ice cream flavor which is milo, tried all the flavours and milo really stood out. However the servers wasnt very fair, one of the servers gave a lot while the other gave a much smaller portion but overall great desserts.
