Yum! There were so many options here, and the peanut butter one was defiantly a good choice. They had ANZAC and Easter special ice creams which I thought was really cool. Nice service and overall lovely experience :)

but, get real, it's good, not great, not wonderful, not something to rave about. Much ado about nothing springs to mind.

Had brunch at Matakana Farmers Market, on way to Heron's Flight for wine tasting & came across Charlie's Gelato Garden. Perfect place for "dessert". Everything looks yummy!! Makes it really had to choose. Partner & I had a double scoop each & all four flavours were awesome!! Will definitely be back if we come back this way again.

Excellent service, great ice creams and sorbets. The range of flavours are still amazing. New people take over in April, I hope they keep the quality up.

The first Impression makes you believe in high quality icecream. Tasting the icecream makes you not only disappointed , it makes you angry: tasting about nothing, not about fruit ot whatever the name promised. Only sweet, sweet and sweet and of course some colour. We stopped eating and returned the icecream to the counter. An excuse was all we got.... More

Fantastic selection of Gelato! Had Honey & Almond, Fig & Ginger double scoop.

Following the very good ratings of this place we went there to have ice cream. I have to say that it tasted predominantly sweet, obviously there was a very very high concentration of sugar in the products. There was absolutely no fruit taste . Luckely I decided to not eat more than 30% of it. My wife only 10%.She brought... More
