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

Berthillon ice cream from here is vastly superior to any sold at random places that just buy the ice cream for resale. Here, it is made and in constant production for its sales at the counter, so it's fresh. And amazing: rich, creamy, and maximum flavor. It is also cheaper than the spots reselling, which is funny. This stuff is... More

Didn't get from the Bethillon shop, but from one of the side street vendors, but still, haven't tasted anything as sublime as this. Pistachio and Parline go so well together. The grapefruit sorbet also to die for!

The greatest ice cream on the planet. I became aware of it after seeing it on Anthony Bordaine's " The layover". Worth the short hike from Notre Dame down Rue Ille St Louis. The scoops are small, but wow - talk about rich. Diabetics stay away the rest of you - pig out. Though the scoop is small, it is... More

Some of the freshest, most vibrant tasting ice cream you will ever experience in your life. Every day was a new flavor adventure. The Berthillon offshoots are just as good and may have different flavors. Try seasonal things, like the poire (pear) or cerise (cherry) in summer. The cherry tastes like a slice of the best homemade cherry pie. Every... More

This is the richest Ice Cream I have ever tasted, and I make a point of sampling as many Ice Cream shops as I can! I loved the Chocolate and saw so many smiling faces walking around the area licking away at their cones that it was almost like a party. Yes the cones are a bit small, but that... More

Every time we come to Paris, we always try and sample the Berthillon ice cream. Because it was August, the main shop itself was closed for the summer holiday, so we bought some from a nearby shop. The cassis sorbet was out of this world. These are the best ice creams we have ever tasted (sorry NZ's Tip-Top 'Hokey Pokey).... More
