“Can you say HEAVEN??? Best ICE and Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Same owners of the Carisbrooke Inn now own this place. We had the best ices and ice cream there this Summer. The orange ice mixed with the vanilla ice cream was one of my favorites.

Friendly service, great treats - it's at the top of list when we are there in season from now on.

“Nasty, Nasty, Nasty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

Too bad in this day and age of customer service, you come to a nice town like Ventnor and find an offputting sign at a water ice store stating there are no free samples. That would be fair enough, but they go on further to condescend to the customer and say
Cherry tastes like Cherry, Chocolate tastes like Chocolate, etc.
PLEASE, have some compassion, and be a little gentler to your customers. There is another ice cream /water ice store aroumd the corner, and they are more than happy to give a sample if a customer is unsure of their choice.

“Pound 4 Pound the Best Water Ice!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2009

The sweetness level, texture, real fruit bits.....its an wonderful product they serve there at Mento's. everything here feels like someone cares about what they put out. It is family owned which explains it all. I really love this place. I would recommend it to everyone!
