Apart from Vivoli in Florence, you'll never eat ice cream like this anywhere on earth. I'm a vanilla-chocolate addict, and theirs is at the top of the list!

First of all, let me start by saying, I am not a fan of ice cream. I'm just not a fan and I think most of it tastes alike. I don't get all the fuss about it. So I was naturally skeptical when I read about Berthillon - what could someone possibly do to ice cream to make it *that*... More

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
