We came here based on reviews we’d read and were quite disappointed. $6 for single scoop and $7 for double. Thats quite pricey by Australian standards. The serving sizes were decent but the ice cream was really quite poor quality. The vanilla was bland. The hokey pokey was better but both ice creams were filled with ice crystals. I wouldn’t come back. The chocolate store round the corner might have better ice cream.

Nice adress in Wanaka for an ice cream. It's affordable and there is a large choice of flavour. The service is good and quick. The place is near the lake, so you can find a great place in front of it to eat your ice cream.

not like real gelato IMO. too sweet. I threw mine away after a few bites of the cone. Got the chocolate flavor. Didn't like it enough to eat the whole cone.
