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.

This is definitely one of the best, if not the best, I have tasted in Paris. They have a good variety of flavors, and despite the brand's reputation, their prices are very reasonable. The place is small but not crowded, and the staff are friendly. We tasted the different flavors, and my favorite is the salted caramel; my wife loved... More

Saw that Berthillion was highly recommended and 4 of us made a point of coming here for a post lunch snack - we had high hopes! During our hunt to find this place on Ile Saint-Louis we saw many restaurants and cafe's which looked great and were all selling Berthillion’s ice-cream but we persevered with going to the original purveryors...

A must-do every time I go to Paris. There's a wide range of flavours - the Gianduja-Orange and Salted Butter Caramel are highly recommended - and good value too at 4 EUR for a double cone.

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!

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.
