Ice Cream on a summers day is always good. The ice cream was good although a little expensive. Small sitting area which could be tidier allows a good view of the esplanade. Likely to come back.

Movenpick Of Switzerland sells some of the finest Ice Cream in Cairns. It's a little more expensive than some others, but the quality makes up for the slightly higher cost. They have a great range of Ice Cream and you can buy tubs to take...More

Hi Patrick B Thank you for your review. I am so pleased that the ice cream is as you remember it from back home. Pistachio is a great flavour, personally I love the chewy texture of the nuts. I hope you visit us again soon....More

We had the strawberry special 5 days straight as it's fabulous. It's served in a waffle cone with cream, the ice cream of your choice and fresh strawberries. We chose the Cream brûlée ice cream. It's the best ice cream we have ever tried.

Never disappointed by this place. The ice cream is always incredible, service is friendly and exciting ways to enjoy the delicious flavours-not just in a cone! Can't go past it without popping in!
