We've been here several times, it's the best we've had around the south east coastline. Any flavour is pretty amazing, just tried the mango which was great.

Lovely proper gelato on Margate sea front, with delicious cones or tubs. Good choice of flavours, all cream based. Chocolate and coffee could do with more oomph, but consistency and sweetness was just right. Salted caramel very good. Great end to a day out at...More

We went here during Pride so there was a queue. It’s rather expensive for what you get. The milkshake was great as was the salted caramel icecream. Not a huge selection of flavours, the chocolate orange was a bit bland as was the chocolate icecream.

Really fabulous gelato in a large number of flavours. Some good sorbets too. The best bit is there are some food vegan options too. Well priced and well worth a visit, right by the main sands!

Really good ice cream and great that there are changing flavours of sorbet too. Really reasonably prices also. It's nice that you can watch the sunset from Melt or just cross the road and see it from the beach with your ice cream in hand.

We tried the ice cream as being one of the best ones in margate, the ice cream was really good but the service was awful, not even a smile. They are lucky to have soooooo good icecream otherwise it will be 1 star for me
