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.

One of the best gelato in nz. Fresh from local produces turned into the unique gelato flavours. We had doris plum and black currant which are in season. Highly recommened to try when you are in wanaka.

I only need a view words. It was delicious. That being said, it was a tough day today because I hit a rock with my car and blew the sidewall out!. The end.

We went here for dessert on a warm summer night, and unfortunately, we were disappointed. While the portion sizes were spot on, the gelato wasn’t. The texture wasn’t great - quite gritty, and the gelato tasted too sweet, with no creaminess to balance the sweetness...(with the exception of the salted chocolate, as we understand that is a sorbet). We were particularly disappointed by the cookies and cream. The bits of cookie were far too blended, meaning there was no texture; it was just one single entity, and we couldn’t really taste the cookies, nor the cream. We also got the yoghurt flavour, which turned out to be a boysenberry swirl ice cream. Finally, we also tried the salted chocolate sorbet. This was rich in flavour which we enjoyed, but was gritty in texture. Pricing was a bit on the high side for a single scoop ($8), but competitive for a double and triple scoop ($9 and $10 respectively). We found the triple scoop was the perfect size for two.More

There is a reason this place has an almost constant queue outside it. The ice creams and gelatos are amazing. Huge range which they change all the time and display on the board outside, so you can use your 10-15min wait time to decide (and...change your mind multiple times!). The staff were very efficient and friendly despite being under the pump all day, every day during our stay.More

Awesome selection of sorbet and gelato flavours. Each time I’m down there’s always a few different flavours on offer! Personal favourites are After Eight Mint and Cookies & Cream.

Popped in on a whim and definitely not disappointed. The salted white chocolate and salted caramel were both Devine. Seriously considering a second trip for the day!

Very delicious flavours and definitely generous portions for both cone and cup! They have a really good selection of flavours with a huge number of sorbets also, I ended up getting the salted caramel, chocolate and hokey pokey and I don't regret a god damn...thing! I wouldn't say it's an authentic Gelato experience but it is definitely damn tasty and I will definitely be coming back again.More

Great flavours and generous scoops. I had the blood orange and creme brûlée and can recommend both. The gelato is made locally. The staff are very friendly and they let you try the different flavours.
