Who doesn't love ice cream after a meal or on a hot day. Perfect for all kinds of ice cream lovers weather it be a shake, cone, smoothie or just a bowl of ice cream.

I asked for a shake that looked like the menu picture and the supervisor gave me major attitude and blamed me for not asking first what was in the shake. He said he could... More

I really don't know if the flavour combination I had was the best. I believe it was overpriced for what I got and the seller lady was not very helpful.

I fully intended to go for a Got To Have It sized portion but when I saw the young man in front of me's Like It portion, I decided that'd do for me! Wow! Such huge portions! Not that I'm complaining because you're talking about the most delicious ice cream concoctions here. There were three of us, I had the... More

Children wanted a fast cone. They like the creamy ice-cream here. They were accommodating to our child's allergies.

What great ice cream, on par with Italy. Berry, berry, berry good in a Love It tub was my guilty pleasure having experienced it in Lake Tahoe the week before. It didn't last long. NIce to walk off as we strolled back to hotel. Why can't they open here in the UK?

Kids loved the wide choice and mashing up of the ice creams on the cold stone. Yummy! Huge portions too - enough to share!

I love icecream! Really, everytime I have a chance I am having icecream, even if the weather is cold! A friend introduced me to this place. I chose to create my own mix and when I had the first icecream taste I felt like I was in Heaven! It´s so creamy and tasty in your mouth I can´t even describe... More
