Truly decadent and rich ice cream. Originally had this on our list for my husband, who is an ice cream lover. However, I ended up getting a scoop (or two) every time we stopped. In addition to getting it from one of the Berthillon locations, many restaurants have it on their dessert menue.

I've been to Berthillon twice in the past, but for whatever reason it really impressed me this time. Maybe because I tried new flavors and had two kids with me? The vanilla was the strongest, most gorgeous vanilla I have ever had. Hands-down, no question. Same goes for the mint -- the mintiest mint I've had BY FAR... makes me... More

Salted caramel, pineapple with roasted basil, wild strawberry, you name it - Berthillon ice cream has the best flavours in town. The ice cream portions are not huge, but the flavours are intense, so it is perfect. My daughter and I are big ice cream fans and we were blown away by Berthillon - we went back 3 times while...

Berthillon is hardly an "unknown gem", but it definitely is worth making your way to the center of Ile Saint-Louis to find it! We stopped by twice during our recent trip to Paris. The flavors of the sorbets are amazingly deep and intense. While it is slightly different than what we American's typically expect of "ice cream", the flavors packed... More

Best ice cream ever! Some very unique flavor/combinations - salted caramel, wild strawberries, peach, and pineapple/basil were probably among the best. It was an easy walk from Notre Dame to the shop, but we had to wait in a long line patiently. Definitely worth the wait!

The creamy ice-creams (chocolate, chocolate nougat) were fantastic, but what really stood out for me, were the fruit sorbets - they are so fragrant and potent and fresh! The wild strawberries (fraises des bois) is definitely worth the extra charge; note though that it's seasonal (from what I read). My favourites: Wild strawberries, mandarin (orange), yuzu yogurt. Tip: Besides the... More

You can choose from many possibilities of ice-cream, you have to wait in long queue or sit inside but what more to say then - best ice cream in Paris! It is just must-try!

Probably the best ice cream I have ever tasted, even after our visit to Rome.... We went on a Friday and no line up was encountered.... Only 'sour' point (and small one) is that the server was outright rude. However, we came back for a second time as the ice cream was that good............

Stopped by for an ice cream cone while strolling through St Louis area. This was some of the best ice cream we have ever had.

There is a line to get a scoop for a reason. This is the richest, creamiest, tastiest ice-cream on the planet. Butter salted caramel, rum raison, and chocolate are the three scoops I had. They were all amazing, but the salted caramel was outstanding. The price was right and the line moved quickly.
