When you visit Portstewart, a visit to Morellis is a must 😍 Lovely ice cream served. Good views over the bay. And a little bit of the family history. Molto interessante 🤓 Un pèlerin

You know what you get with Morelli's. And you get good ice cream. They are always accommodating to toddlers and families. It has a great view. And the banoffee pie is legendary.

Called one afternoon when out with some old ladies. We had coffee and hot chocolates with tray bakes to accompany. Coffee was v good indeed as was the hot chocolate. We thought that the price range was on the high side when compared to other coffee shops in the area, though the coffee was of v good quality. The views... More

We visited this coffee shop several times whilst on holiday in Portstewart. All of the food was excellent - scones, panninis, ice cream and coffee

This was an absolute delight to discover, an ice cream parlour where you could watch them make your dessert. Plenty of options, obviously very popular with the locals.

Morelli's is always a good place to stop for ice cream. Since the last time I visited, they have added a lot of gourmet flavours. Although they were good, they could do with a bit of tweaking to the recipes... just didn't quite hit the spot - and our group tried 8-10 flavours.

We visited for ice cream as it is famed for the stuff. We weren't disappointed - every flavour we could imagine and slushy ice for my daughter! The decor is superb, it's clean and the service is very good! The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the staff all seemed generally miserable. No smiles very dour indeed... More

We went in a bought two ice cream dishes which came to over £8, for two ice creams!? I don't want to seem tight but I thought it was a bit much. "Free" phone charging available and "free" games available maybe this is the reason for the over priced ice cream. Only giving a 3 rating as staff were very... More

Great ice cream, good coffee, great buzz. Even on a dark autumn evening the place is buzzing with people and ice cream is good no matter what time of year or how bad the weather!
