Used to visit here all the time as a child and it still has that special feeling I remember. Great choice of ice creams and desserts. Still has the old favourites. It's a must for me to visit when I return home a couple of times a year.

Morelli's is an integral part of any trip to Portstewart for me and this visit didn't disappoint. I had a fantastic Ulster Fry and my friends had some chilli and soup. Every meal was unbelievable and reasonably priced too. We didn't have sundaes as we were so full but they are always massive and I've never had a bad experience... More

Do not understand all the hype about Morelli's. The ice-cream is nothing special and the Sundaes are terrible. One of the most coldest restaurants I have been in for a while. Very out-dated, time to re-invent yourself.

Going back 30 years we thought it would be nice to try a knickerbocker glory again. So on a beautiful late summer evening in September we called at Morelli's and ordered 2. Well we were disappointed runny jelly and a few pieces of tinned fruit and the glass was mostly ice cream and there wasn't much change out of £15.... More

We went to Morellis for pudding having had a hot meal on the beach. Well, we'd been here before but forgot how big the sundaes are. I had a yellow man, and my wife had a banoffee sundae. They were huge, and we couldn't eat them all, which isn't like us. Lovely food, well presented and delicious. We will definitely... More

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
