We come to France once a year to visit my husbands parent’s. Berthillon is one of the places we make sure we come to every time we are in Paris. The ice cream is fabulous! My husband raves all year about the wild strawberry … it is by far his favourite. We are headed that way again in June, and... More

We had ice cream in the Berthillon tea room and it is the best. We were there twice while in Paris and the product is unsurpassed anywhere in Paris. We deliberately went to 3 of the other "top" ice cream stores and they are not in the same league. For intensity of flavor,consistent creaminess and originality this is by far... More

Absolutely worth tasting this ice cream. Towards the expensive but two scoops is a must. Close to the Notre Dame, so excellent after visiting the church.

The ice cream & sorbets from Berthillon are arguably the best ever. The store on the Ile St Louis is always packed full - tourists and locals alike. Wonderful flavours. Lovely!

I purposely went to Berthillon after reading many fabulous comments when I was planning my trip to Paris. I ordered the Passionfruit and Raspberry Sorbet and I have to admit that it is the best you will ever have. The portions are small but the flavor is so rich that you only need one to two scoops max. I am... More

I indulged while I was there - Berthillion's famous ice cream was something I was dying to try. I was not disappointed. I had the salted caramel and it was amazing. Do not miss this if you're in Paris.

Indulged myself with a vanilla icecream, my husband had salted caramel. Both utterly delicious. Best icecream ever, or at least equal to black olive in Nice.

I have been many times at Berthillon, both at the original shop and at the side vendors. The ice cream is very good and there are some interesting flavors I haven't seen anywhere else. But what really makes this place special are the sorbets. The choice is vast and when in Paris we usually end up going there every evening... More

I have been to Berthillon many time over the last 24 years. It is still the number one place for ice cream in Paris as far as I know. Over the years many new ice cream concepts have been introduced, but some names become synonymous this place is one of them. It is situated in one of the oldest parts... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighborhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
