So many nice flavours, it's hard to just pick one or two. Then when the final choice has been made, cross the road and savour it whilst enjoying the view of Lake Wanaka.

I never thought I would say this but the liquorice flavour gelato is outstanding! Last week I tried the coca-cola flavour combined with pavlova. Just brilliant. The guys keep coming up with great flavours and it's always exceptional quality. Great service and good prices.

Simply beautiful icecream. I had Cointreau orange and chocolate - a winning combination! Friendly service too.

These are definitely the best ice creams we have tasted for years. Just on the waterfront - don't miss it!! Loads of different flavours, all freshly made, and brilliant service
