You must try Shakes sorbet. It's just incredible. I don't have a sweet tooth; it's creamy perfection is just heaven. I'm addicted!!

We were looking for icecream and the Shakes Gelati bar was great. It is more traditional gelati style but with lots of flavour options.

We last lived in NJ, and I can tell you, Australia is hands down making gellato better than any Italian in the states!! The gelloato makers are creative and are producing some of the best I have ever tasted, even better than I can remember in Italy 20 years ago. I had the mint chocolate chip, and it was amazing,...

We love visiting Shakes Gelati Bar when in Port Douglas. Gelati is delicious and so many flavours. The staff are always so accommodating with my 10 year old son who is allergic to pistachios. Highly recommend. Judging by the queues each night, I think lots of people agree with me!

Great gelato, with big serves for the right price. It's weird that they don't have gelato on display and don't do tastings but don't let that put you off.

We walked to Shakes most evenings for after dinner treats for the kids, and the ice cream, although a bit expensive, is excellent, especially the salted caramel and toasted coconut.

The gelato here is amazing! Reasonably priced and cater for gluten/dairy free. You won't be disappointed! They are cash only so if u get stuck there is a little store next door with an atm.

I am a fussy gelato eater and I have to say this is the best I have ever had! It's not too heavy (so no sick feeling afterwards) and the different flavours were amazing! Seasalt caramel was the best flavour of all. Highly recommend.

I stayed across the road from the Shakes for 2 weeks and couldn't find a chance to visit until I almost left after 2 weeks. The place is so popular, there are queues outside all day and all night!! Anyway, finally found a window where there was no one in the shop. Took my family in there and found out... More
