“Refreshing Ice Cream”

Island Gelato Company
Ranked #2 of 73 Dessert in Auckland Central
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 January 2018

The Island Gelato Company is an ice cream outlet on the main drag in Oneroa, Waikehe Island. There is a separate, slightly larger space at the ferry terminal in Auckland. Price is not the cheapest but during peak season at peak times there is quite a queue because this is good ice cream.

The outlet is located towards the end of Ocean View Road in Oneroa, the other side of the settlement from the beach access. It is worth the few minutes to stroll down.

The options are generally pretty good with the chocolate being a favourite for children. Probably the best flavour is the Waiheke plum, a fruity choice and great ice cream on a hot, sunny day.

There is one table to sit on which means most customers will be expected to walk around with their ice creams which is fine.

Price is not cheap but this is good ice cream and is a tasty and refreshing option to enjoy on Waiheke.

We arrived Saturday evening at 9:30 pm a full
half hour before they closed and they had only 1/3 to 1/2 of the normal selection. When I attempted to taste one type of gelato one of the employees acknowledged my request then ran off to the back and forgot about interesting the person standing next to me wondered what happened as well. I attempted taste again upon second request and it was quite awful. With the lack of selection signs of types and flavors being incorrect I decided to leave without purchasing anything. My wife did purchase a double scoop for nine dollars this is much higher cost than other gelato we’ve had nearby and the taste was average at best. We rarely give negative reviews on trip advisor but this establishment needs notice. We were extremely disappointed and will never return hopefully the management can make corrections because they have a wonderful location but service is what keeps people coming back.

This gelato shop is located in the ferry building. A cone/cup is $6, which is fairly expensive for a small scoop of ice cream. But the Mandarin Chocolate Coconut ice cream is so worth the cost. It taste like eating a chocolate dipped orange slice. The hazelnut was mild and refreshing. They willingly give free samples so try a few samples as they have some interesting flavor combinations.

A new concept on Icecream preparation and presentation: fresh ingredients, artisan preparation and best possible natural flavors.

Presentation and ingredients are key to experience this premium icecream, way superior to most of other local concepts.

Top flavors to try: darkest chocolate, pistaccio, plum.

2 locations: Weikeke town, Auckland city.
