Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped here two times during our stay in Christchurch. The ice cream was fantastic, flavors innovative yet delicious and portions generous.

If you want a special ice cream treat, then head to Rollickin Gelato. You’ll not be disappointed. The hardest choice is what flavour to try - Yogi Bear is a favourite. If you can’t decide on one flavour, simply double up.

If you like gelato - you will love this establishment. So much choice and all tasting/looking absolutely delicious. You really have to give it a go, but be warned - it will probably be busy as it is so good

The ice cream is fantastic and the service counter is really quick and friendly. We seriously liked the hokey tokey pokey ice cream and all the desserts in the display case looked delicious. We will probably be back to try a brownie and some more...ice cream! They have lots of spots to sit inside and outside including an upstairs. We sat upstairs and found that previous patrons did not do a great job cleaning up after themselves and a staff member came up and was cleaning up the garbage and glasses left by other people. This dessert spot is on New Regent Street which is the perfect spot to grab a quick meal or a good drink then follow it up with some Rollickin!More

Was craving a dessert after being out and I'm not even a dessert person. Was a little bit converted though by Rollickin Gelato. I couldn't being myself to order something named after a Labour Party MP and choose a Sticky Date Pudding with Coconut Chocolate...Dairy Free Ice-cream. The presentation and attention to detail was incredible and the dessert, with a jug of caramel sauce and chewy toffee pieces. It tasted sooo good and my dish could have satisfied four people, it was so generous. My daughter's chocolate brownie with hokey pokey pieces was also described as 'the best dessert ever' Highly recommend and will be back!More

I stopped to get ice cream spontaneously. The varieties they offer sound great on paper, but the actual ice cream I had was just ok taste wise. The service was not very welcoming and it felt a little rushed, but they were very busy that...day, so people don’t seem to mind. I have had better, but also worse ice cream in my life, so if you don’t mind the rushed service, you’ll be able to enjoy some funky flavours they offer.More

You easily recognizes this place for the long queue outside. And it's worth. The ice cream was delicious. Very creamy. Vanilla, cafe and tiramisu. Highly recommendable

What a great place to come across while we walked our dinner off from Habaneros. We couldn’t resist the quirky look of the place from the outside. There are lots of options listed in the doorway, which’s adds to the charm. Inside delicious looking gelato...flavours teased us further in. I had the Mr Mint (with chocolate shell) and the wifey had Salted caramel both in cups. The gelato was super yum and really smooth, the scoop in a cup was the perfect size. We sat inside to eat as it was getting a bit chilly outside, the place has lots of character inside, with funny things to read on the walls and figurines dotted around the place. The staff were super friendly with lots of smiles. Highly recommend you stop in, just look for the large ape outside.More

After having lunch at Riverside Market, we opted to come here for dessert. We couldn't resist the hot desserts featured for the winter. We shared the chocolate cake between the four of us and it hit the spot. They even have a dessert named after...the prime minister, and sure enough there was a picture of her visiting the place on the wall.More
