Dear Sharport67 Thank you so much for your review. I think we have the best ice cream in Cairns as well. Our flavours are solid/intense and not wishy washy. When you eat one of our ice creams you know you are going to enjoy it till the very end and not tire of it half way through. Glad you enjoyed.... More

As a Swiss expat I was over the moon when a Moevenpick shop opened up in Cairns- this has always been my favourite ice cream!!! Whenever we come down to Cairns from the Tablelands, we always have an ice cream at Moevenpick's - nothing beats it!😀

Theresa R, Manager at Movenpick Of Switzerland - Cairns, responded to this review

Dear Susanna J Thank you for your lovely review. I totally agree with you that our ice cream is the best in Cairns. It is still made in Switzerland and they only use the best ingredients from around the world. Movenpick do not use any artificial colours, preservatives or flavourings thats why when you have one of our delicious sorbets... More

The Swiss have a way of creating the best and their ice cream is top quality with many delicious choices. We sampled a couple of others during our stay in Cairns and this was the overwhelming favorite.

A bit biased, but Movenpick is my favourite ice cream, so a bonus to find it in Cairns. We went every night whilst we were here. Service was friendly and the ice cream is to die for !

It was my birthday on the day I arrived in Cairns, so I treated myself to a tasty Swiss ice cream. It wasn't cheap, but was worth every lick!

Great spot for a treat, an ice cream delight, have to recommend the Iced Chocolate. The service is amazing, positive and high energy, making it a good experience. Located in a beautiful spot on the Esplanade it is worth the visit.

The ice cream is undoubtedly irresistible. I couldn't choose my favourite flavour as they are just all so good. I realized they changed the management upon tonight's visit. It is such a big difference honestly in terms of service, cleanliness, product availability and overall operation. The staff are professional, friendly and caring. You can tell they are trying very best... More

Hi Grace Thank you very much for your very complimentary review.
