After visiting Notre Dame we walked to Berthillon's. The ice cream is pricey but yummy. We tried wild strawberry, chocolate and white chocolate. Chocolate and wild strawberry were fantastic. We weren't as keen on the white chocolate.

They were known for the quality and taste of their ice creams. At the beginning, you could only get these ice creams in the Berthillon stores in Ile Saint Louis, which gave them a sense of uniqueness. Todays, you can buy them anywhere, unfortunately.

If you happen to be on il de la cite, stop for one of the best ice cream experiences of your life. Superb mouth feel, intense flavors, unexpected combinations. What more can you ask for. By the way, they sell their ice cream to many restaurants, so if you see the name on the menu, indulge. It's an experience you... More

This is by far the best ice cream I have ever had. We were in Paris July 2014 and went here on a whim. I ordered the chocolate coffee like ice cream with choc chips and maybe marshmallows. It was so creamy and delicious. I dream of this delight and hope we get to go back to France soon! My... More

oh my goodness. What an experience! I would rate this as the best ice cream I've ever had (and I make my own at home!) the rum and raisin and chocolate orange ones were complete revelation. Also had a pistachio fondant which was a taste and texture sensation. A must visit in Paris

We saw this shop written up in several places so decided to visit it on the day we were wandering Île St-Louis. It was so good that we had to go back on a different day to try some different flavors. We had to wait in line but even enjoyed that. We chatted with a Paris resident who said that... More

I am addicted to Berthillon ice cream. Even if the weather temperature is below zero, I would still buy the ice cream. Every time I visit Paris I need my fix of Berthillon ice cream every day! Once my visit is over, I will do at least 2 weeks dreaming about it. It's incredible good. Until next time Berthillon! My... More

My friends all recommended this cafe for their ice cream--and we indulged. Amazing flavors-- and i enjoyed rhubarb and lemon. Fine just to order and walk around or sit along the seine to enjoy a cone/cup. or, sit inside or on the terrace of the restaurant.

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.
