We are so lucky to have this incredible little ice cream shop in our village! All ice cream is made on site. There is so much deliciousness to choose from that it is always a tough decision for our family. The offer Vegan and Banting...options too! The perfect stop after a visit from the beach or a treat on a meltingly hot day! They also have a stall at the Hout Bay Market on the weekends!More

It's nice Ice cream, but I wouldn't agree with other reviews that say it's the best in town. There is better ice cream available. But over all it was a good experience. Unfortunately the banting ice cream ran out. Would come again.

True gelateria, owned by Italians. Staff are always friendly and helpful. The sorbet (dairy-free) and ice cream is delicious and there are so many flavours to choose from. I come here to get ice cream a lot and I always feel happy when I leave...:)More

Time always tells....this ice cream parlour has been around forever & that simply tells a tale of success. Always plenty of flavours available, reasonably priced & pleasant staff. Outside seating so you can enjoy your choice before it melts ! If you enjoy ice cream...you must try this one.More

This quaint shop of delights is tucked away and very unassuming, but don't be fooled! What can be found inside is quite simply a treasure of tasty joy! I regularly visit to finish off my Peninsula day tours and the friendly Italian family and their...staff are always a pleasure to chat to. The Gelato has even healed my upset stomach on one occasion. Not only is it by far the most delicious ice cream in the country, it's also medicinal...More

Nice choice of home made Italian ice creams. Hidden away gem in a corner next to Cheyne's restaurant. Great service from the owners.

You want real Italian gelato? Like you get in tiny gelaterias across Italy. The sort of gelato that brings back fond memories of travel and la dolce vita? Then Ice Dream is the place for it. We've been coming here for years and I won't...eat ice-cream anywhere else. It's a tiny place and the queues usually stretch out beyond the doors, but one never minds queuing. It makes for pretty good people watching. A wonderful range of flavours - always freshly made, a selection of cones and tubs, utterly perfect gelato and warm, friendly service. Absolutely no other ice cream place comes close.More

This is a charming little hole in the wall serves the best home made Italian ice cream. Its run by an even more charming lady and her brother who have been in Hout Bay for years. It's a must on a hot day - any...day! Sorbets and all different flavours really good value.More

The only thing that could make this a better Gelato venue in South Africa is if they stay open the whole year long! And get much more ice cream flavours! Not that they don't have a good array of flavours to choose from - they...certainly do...with such exotics as even fig flavoured gelato. The only time I have ever had fig flavoured gelato was in Venice, Italy itself!! Faz makes all his own gelato. A lovely, warm, Italian mother assists and the staff are obviously very happy to work there...what a well run shop and a well frequented one!!!More
