Went to this ice cream parlour on recommendation, we had been out all day so the kids choose waffles, far to much chocolate on the top spoilt the dish. Ice cream was very nice, stick to the ice cream.

Huge menu .... so much choice ! But just didn't amaze me Lots of gelato places popping up all over the place .... this isn't the best Huge portions ! Great value as not expensive Just seemed to be thrown together ... not a lot of consideration but can't put my finger on why it just doesn't taste great ....

Have been here a few times, food is good very filling and a good price. Large range of deserts all of which are quite big and good quality. Fast service friendly staff. Also open till midnight incase you fancy ice-cream in the middle of the night.

Been here a couple of times now. Pretty good fast service. Decent taste. No real faults to speak of. Maybe bit expensive for what it is.

A lot of choice, big scoops, huge waffles, huge sundaes and reasonably priced. Clean restaurant, friendly staff, plenty of seating and clean toilets. There are busy, when we arrived there was only a few tables spare and while enjoying our desserts every table became busy. Good for a takeaway as well, whether it is ice cream (cup or cone) or...

Popped in for an ice cream treat. The sundaes are huge, but in comparison, the waffles are Mountainous. I had the Banoffee, but without the toffee sauce. I almost managed to finish it. The Sundae is too big for children to finish. Not cheap, but nice for a treat. Just order something you can finish, otherwise it detracts from the... More

Visited today to use a Groupon voucher. Staff abruptly informed us of lots of restrictions with the voucher that weren't stated anywhere on voucher or in fine print. One order was wrong when served, so I advised them politely. Staff were extremely rude about it & threw my waffle across the table to me when re- serving it. It wasn't... More

Delicious Ice cream and so many flavours to choose from!! What's not to love! Quick and friendly service, open late Sunday evening when the sun was going down. Great place (albeit central Portsmouth, no offence ;-). )
