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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place is no longer there and wasn't the best. It just disappeared out of the Plaza and I have no knowledge as to where it went.

My partner and I went in there for a hot chocolate, and it was great. The service was excellent, it came out really fast - and best of all it was delicious. I appreciated the fact that there were so many different options, both drinks-wise...and for the food.More

I have never eaten food from this place but I always get icecreams from here! In the summer this is a great place to go to cool down with a delicious icecream or gelato!

Just popped in for a gelato and found a dozen or more varied and interesting flavours, such as Baileys tiramisu, apple pie, a well as the more traditional ones. They let us sample a few before serving us a huge single scoop. Excellent flavours, big...servings, friendly staff; at $4.50 a scoop it was how it should be.More

They have a great selection of gelatos and sorbets, as well as a big selection of specialty teas, and they now also serve the ever popular bubble tea. The prices are medium range. The service is great and the cafe itself boast a few table...and chairs inside and out. Great place to relax and people watch in the small shopping and movie complex while enjoying the great gelatos.More

This place is amazing. My wife and I come here often, and they have a great, ever-changing selection of ice creams and sorbets. My favourites are the pistachio (really nutty, almost almondy, not like any other pistachio ice cream I've had) and the stracciatella. My...wife loves their sorbets, and they have a wide selection - usually 6-10 of them, ranging from watermelon to tangerine to green apple to melon. Definitely one of our regular go-to places in Palmerston North, always good after a trip to the cinema.More

Brilliant little cafe located at the Main Street entrance to Downtown. The perfect spot for a dessert fix, whether it be before or after the movies or a treat to end your day. Great selection of Gelato icecreams in a variety of fresh flavours. Definitely...worth a visit.More

Chocolate is a nice wee place for a stop off drink or treat. The gelato is delicious and always a variety of a flavours fruity and milk based. 4.50 for a single scoop which is quite reasonably sized so a good price. The hot chocolates...are amazing also! Proper chocolate used and can scoop it out the mug at the end mmm. Also these are very large ! Seating inside is nothing great but more a place to grab a gelato and head offMore

It took about 5 minutes to be served as no one was at the counter and didn't turn up for a while after I rang the bell. Selection of flavours was great but the texture of the gelato was very odd and actually made me...feel sick all afternoon. $6 for two scoops or very average gelato...Wouldn't go back.More

Loved the belgian hot chocolates and the gelato. I think the gelato is overpriced though and the sweet treats look quite plasticky. Ive tried the cheesecake before and it wasnt much to be desired. The waffle cones dipped in choc are really nice :)

Had a lovely ice cream sundae on a date. The ice-cream was great. The seating is a bit cheap but I guess your not going to be hanging out there all night.

Me and my husband go to Chokolato after our shopping, and they always have lots of different gelato flavors that you want to try them all! We end up eating gelato all the time but next time I want to try their hot chocolate, I...hear it's very good. The service is very good and friendly. We like to sit on the table by the window and eat our gelatos while watching people go by.More
