They ice cream is ice cream...not at Baskin & Robbins. 31 flavors and smooth creamy delight. Shop on Cairns Esplanade is old and a bit dirty/tired looking...but this did not take away the delicate flavor and total enjoyment of sitting on the esplanade enjoying my ice cream as I did as a kid

The ice cream at BR always lacks real flavor and mouth creamy taste - how long since it was made - must have been stored too long

Great Ice-Cream but I love any Baskin-Robbin's. The staff are always pleasant and have a good range to pick from.

So much choice and what wonderful flavours!!! Great service and love the idea of them introducing new flavours regularly. Value for money and right on the Esplanade.

There are a lot of icecream places around the esplanade but this is definitely the best! We had great service and were allowed to try a variety of different icecreams to help us make a decision as there was so much choice. The staff were very helpful and friendly and gave great recommendations. The shop was very clean and hygienic... More

In comparison to Newzealand icecream, this place is a bit pricey. A scoop costs $6.50 as against $5 @ Newzealand icecream for similar quality of icecream.

Baskin-Robbins icecream is the best! So many flavours to choose from and many gluten free options too.
