This hidden treasure is a delight - nothing but beautiful ice cream and thick shakes - a disaster for the sweet tooth. a great range of flavors - all delicious

Was a bit disappointed sampling wasn't an option, but the other ice cream place I went to in PD didn't allow it either. Since I wasn't wanting to risk a bad experience, I got my favorite tiramisu and it was excellent. The small scoop was definitely small, but it was so tasty I didn't mind. Service was average, nothing remarkable.

So excited these guys had vegan options on their menu! We tried a really delicious creamy strawberry and a rich dark chocolate gelati. Very friendly and helpful lady.

No samples given which to me is very surprising , you should be able to try what you are going to eat. The lady that served us was snobbish and not friendly. Gelato not bad nothing special and a bit too sweet...

When you arrive, they only have pictures of the gelato on the wall like we were visiting an art gallery. Ice cream should be experiential. Part of the joy of eating ice cream starts with visualizing all of the flavors. They literally have the ice cream in the back of the store and its not accessible for customers to view.... More

We always come here when in Port Douglas. The Gelati is incredible. Favourites include the roasted coconut, mango and pistachio flavours. Good value for money and friendly service. This time we tried their smoothies and were not disappointed. The berry one and fruit surprise were delicious and refreshing. A must visit when in Port Douglas

The staff seems to be rather nice now compared to years before. The Gelato is of good quality but $4.90 for a scoop is still expensive.

This ice cream shop is pretty close to the beach I had an ice cream from the shop three days in a row I'm sure you could find a flavour that you like

We had some gelato after our dinner, and it was divine. Having had gelato in Italy, this is on par. Would highly recommend you have at least one scoop when visiting Port Douglas.
