Exquisite ice creamery. Must visit in Paris. Walk from Notré Dame to this place. So unassuming. this place supplies to most cafés in Paris.

I found this is the best ice cream in Paris. They offer various flavor of ice cream which makes you crazy. The place is very cozy and classic. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If I come to Paris again, I definitely will go to this place again. Very recommended :)

I love this avenue and location, especially crossing the bridge at night with all the lights and lovely notes from nearby musicians! Bring your romance, bring your kids, bring your grand parents...very safe... lovely spot... great dessert... like Christmas treats all year!

Reading previous reviews from Australia and New Zealand about just how good the local products are in comparison to Berthillon's, I had to laugh. Ice-cream and sorbets from Australia and NZ are world-class, no doubt about that. Placed in comparison with Berthillon's though, it's like comparing Sydney FC to Manchester United. Just a different class, really. Imaginative flavours, great tasting... More

We came here after reading about it in our discover paris lonely planet guide before we went. The ice cream is worth the wait, exceptional and great after a busy day sightseeing.

If you are in Paris, do yourself a favor & get to this Ice Creamery Cafe. The Ice Cream is fantastic & even on a cool winters day in Paris, it still tasted good. Our Tuk Tuk driver recommended it & told us that the founder,Raymond Berthillon, had only just passed away & he hoped the traditional Ice Cream manufacturing... More

Located in the adorable, super posh Ile Saint Louis - a tiny island on the Seine, sitting right next to Ile de la Cite where Notre Dame is located, and full of very old buildings - Bertillon is simply the best ice-cream shop in the world. Every ice-cream and sorbet is home-made, using only natural flavors. The Lemon and the... More

My wife and I just visited this place and it is awesome. The ice cream was really delicious specially the passion fruit one. Full of flavor. I had a delicious cafe Liégeois that was perfect with tiny pieces of chocolate and lots of creme. It is not cheap (12 euros for the two of us), but I think it was... More

First of all, when we enter the street, there was a tiny Berthillon which also sold ice cream, but that was a copy. As we walked further down, we spotted two Berthillons. One was the tea room and another was the selling room. We are non french speakers so it was hard to communicate with the waiter. Also when we... More

This is a must stop on Isle St Louis. There are many locations - some that are just walk ups on the street. And many of the restaurants on the island serve it as well. I discovered the Sea Salt Caramel and Chocolate (a very dark chocolate) which was an awesome combo. My husband loved the Passion Fruit sorbet. It... More
