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.

Tradition and elegance are fading in Paris, Berthillon in Saint Louis, used to be a legendary place for THE BEST ice cream and sorbet you could taste ! It has fallen to a “Good” ice cream where you still queue for ages to get the waited for licks. The on the hurry service is poorly run by Pakistan or other... More

I may confess I am not a big fan of ice cream, and exactly because of that i was so surprised by the tastes of this simple place. I recommend you to try the fruit's ice creams. I had the fruit de la passion and lemon, and they were spectacular! During our 7 days stay in Paris, we went there... More

Berthillon is worth waiting in line for, if only to try a combination of banana and salted caramel! The scoops are on the small side, so a combination of multiple flavors isn't too big for one person to enjoy. We also tried raspberry and dark chocolate, which was amazing as well. Although the line seemed long when we first arrived,... More

Don't miss "The place" of ice cream and sorbet in Saint Louis (Paris). The best flavor ever tested, you won't believe it. You have to go to the real Berthillon (rue saint louis en l'ile), not any berthillon reseller. No credit card accepted like in the old times and every product is made in the original bulding.

Berthillon is worth the trek for the most decadent ice cream you may ever try. The flavors are powerful and perfectly blended. You will be thinking about the ice cream for many weeks after wishing you had a shop near your town. Skip the sit down cafe and go to the parlor for faster, friendlier service.

There were several lines weaving around. I picked the shortest and my family of seven dodged cars and people as we waited for our scoops of the famous ice cream. The server was cordial, bilingual and fast. The scoops were small but tasty. Worth the wait and 3 euros per scoop? I don't think so but my kids do! I... More

Don't go there during peak time otherwise you will be waiting 30min for an ice-cream. Ice-creams here are absolutely delicious and are probably the best in Paris. At the end of day, is it worth waiting half an hour for an ice-cream? Only if you're an addict I guess! But you may regret it, if you don't try them at... More
