Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The creme de Luce was great, very smooth, quite sweet, large scoops dark chocolate sorbet tasted like cocoa powder, similarly the hot chocolate had the same taste, although the hot chocolate had a very nice creaminess to it (the little biscuit on top was pretty...great)More

Amazing! Best ice cream we had in New Zealand. Also enjoyed the chocolate mousse and cheesecake. Tasted fresh, well made. Loved grabbing ice cream here and enjoying it by the lake.

As I have got older, my appetite for sweet treats has lessened and while I had browsed Patagonia chocolates previously, nothing had enticed me enough to make a purchase. However that all changed when Wanaka was blessed with a fabulous sunny day which changed my...mind and there I appeared in Patagonia, seeking out an cold treat to complement the wonderful weather. I have to praise the very friendly staff, who were very patient with my indecisiveness, giving me their personal recommendations in addition to letting me sample as many ice creams and sorbets as I desired. With much deliberation I finally decided upon one scoop of the chocolate sorbet in one of their homemade waffle cones. The deeply rich, tangy, ever so slight bitter flavours make this a favourite for the dark chocolate fans such as myself, the taste is comparable to a 85% piece of dark chocolate. In my opinion this sorbet is totally superior to all chocolate ice cream. By cutting out the middle man of cream, sugar, the sweetness as this does, it results in a much deeper, purer chocolate flavour than any chocolate ice cream could ever hope for. The tangy flavours are partly due to some fruity notes I detected, tart raspberries came to my mind in particular. The homemade waffle cone brings a low level taste of sweetness that is just the right touch and the crisp crunch of the cone was perfect. While I wouldn't change a thing about it, it is very rich so consuming in small quantities or with sweet fresh fruit such as raspberries would mellow the richness slightly. Overall I would highly recommend coming here, the best establishment in wanaka to grab and enjoy some ice cream or sorbet by the beach for exampleMore

My partner found the icecream pleasnt enough and most people will go for that. But we were told it was an extra $2.00 to have soy milk in my coffee. This seems like a real rip off as a percentage of a cup of coffee,...even at Wanaka prices. Most I was asked for elsewhere was 90c. Send signals that they don’t want the custom of those who prefer their coffee dairy free, and there are other places which don’t charge this much.More

Food average (churros were not very nice) but the service was even worse, bad attitude when he was taken the order and I waited for more than 30 min for a coffee and instead I got a hot chocolate. Shame, used to be a nice...place where to go.More

Patagonia in Wanaka is as delicious as in Queenstown! I loved the ice cream and the location right next to the lake is awesome to eat your ice cream in the sun. I would come back any time!

At the end of the street, you can't miss this place more famous for their ice creams and desserts. With indoor and outdoor seating, a great place to slurpon your favourite flavour. The hokey pokey was delicious. Staff are very efficient and always wear a...smile on their faces. That is called perfect customer service.More

I was out on a 20+k run around the Wanaka shoreline with no water and one gel, so by the time I got back to the Wanaka township I was a little low on blood sugar and hydration! A coffee pick-me-up before the 2k home...was what I needed. And a place with wifi to call overseas. Stopped in at Patagonia - the only place that seemed to serve a coffee along the waterfront at 4:45pm (was refused at other restaurants!) and had the most wonderful decaff latte (roasted-inhouse beans, full-flavoured, nice and hot with added sugar for calories :-)) and a glass of chilled serve-yourself water. Drooled over the ice cream flavours displayed at the counter...but that was for another time. Perfect pick-me-up. I think I caught them just before they closed, though there were quite a few people outside slurping on ice cream cones. Oh, and free wifi!More

Had been looking forward to visiting today and excitedly ordered and sat at a table with a beautiful view. Was enjoying an average attempt at a tiramisu and suddenly almost cut the roof of my mouth on a piece of plastic that was among the...garnish on the top. It was quite thick, looked like a piece of a broken cup. When I advised 2 staff I just received a shocked apology. In acknowledgement of them being short staffed, I didn't take it further, but I was so disappointed. I felt the situation warranted a bit more than a simple apology, particularly seeing it cost me $15More
