“so many choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Really nice gelato & so many flavour choices! Macadamia, Choc Hazelnut & Toasted Coconut are amongst my favourites. A nicely presented clean shop.

“ABSOLUTE WORST SERVICE!!!!!! WORST GELATO EXPERIENCE EVER”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This gelato bar is worked by the most angry old people I've ever met. The woman was horribly rude! I have no idea how they stay in business.
They don't let you sample the flavors? And give you snoody rude answers to any questions you ask.

Take your family and money elsewhere!!!!!! There are much better gelato and ice cream options just down or across the street in port Douglas.

“Nice gelato to finish dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

A family tradition is to try gelato in the places we visit. Shakes has given pretty good competition to Kirra Beach gelato but is pipped at the post. Nice range of flavours and decent servings.

“BEST Ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Had a terrific ice cream from Shakes- Cookie n cream! Can get pretty busy this time of year (school holidays) after dinner time, but during the day or later at night it is usually ok.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

It was okay, pretty average and nothing that special. I had the coffee and choc chip and it wasn't that good or special. The lemon sorbet wasn't very good either
