Had read a lot about the experience at Berthillon so it was high on our list of must do's in Paris. The queue out the front indicated we might be in for a treat but unfortunately the gelato wasn't quite up to it. The offering was ordinary in quality and size and the service was quite poor. The young man... More

Great place for an ice cream, yes expensive but delicious. Lots of places nearby sell Berthillon ice cream , I.e. Ice cream made by the master. Look closely at their signs. We went early and had no trouble getting at table, it was nice to sit and eat it rather than have it running all over you, and to those... More

It is not every ice cream shop that can close for the month of August, especially since Paris can be quite steamy. You can eat in the cafe, or wait in line to get a cone to go. Fabulous selection of high-quality flavors, with some gourmet combinations. Go outside your comfort zone and try a new flavor (but not more... More

A cult name, Berthillion has multiple stores around Ile Saint-Louis, maybe have some outlets in Ile De France. We only found one shop open, no explanation behind that it seems. I tried the pistachio in milk based ice cream and raspberry rose in sorbet. Sorbet was a bit too sweet for me but the flavour was epic. The pistachio ice... More

good ice cream for above average prices in nice location. certainly not the best ice cream ever but good. nice to walk around the island or sit somewhere at the water while enjoying it. also has a small inside area which looked nice.

Then go to Amorino down the street------much better. We've tried both many times. Berthillon has a lot of unusual flavors and they are good but you just can't beat the presentation and quality of Amorino.

If you like ice cream this spot is a must visit. Probably fifteen flavored to tempt you. If you want seated service use the left doorway. Stand up service through the right door. Try the Grand Marnier flavor. Three scoops recommended to get a wide variety of flavors.

Easily the best ice cream in town. The selection of Flavours are Amazing. I had chocolate which was so dark & Rich followed by Vanilla with Chocolate Fondant Cake that has got to be my favourite flavour & the best!

We sort of stumbled on this cafe late in the evening while looking for a quieter place in this very busy touristy area. Our super were very good, service was attentive and efficient. But we wondered why there were so many people lined up to get ice cream cones at the mall standard at the entrance to the cafe. Only... More

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.
