“Village in the middle of the city”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

All you need is 20 or 30 minutes to walk down the main drag, window shop, and perhaps buy some ice cream to get the total Ile St. Louis experience. We bought a few toys in the lovely Noah's Ark toy store (where prices were suprisingly lower than what we saw on the "main land"). In a word - charming.

“Lots of Fun”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had an apartment on the island and had a wonderful time there. During the day there are usually street performers on the bridge between Ile Saint Louis and Ile de la Cite. They're fun to watch. Most nights we had dinner at one of the excellent restaurants on the island, then we'd get one or two scoops of Berthillon ice cream and walk to the Pont Saint Louis (bridge) at the tip of the island, then stroll along the Seine while eating our ice cream, watching the tour boats, enjoying the view of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tour and looking at the Parisians having a picnic right next to the river. It truly is the simple things that are the best. A very romantic place.

“Pretty nice...”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Ile St.Louis is in the city center and I am really surprised when someone visit Paris and not Ile St.Louis.
It is not big,streets are narrow and charming,there are so many little shops and restaurants,and atmosphere is really local,despite the fact that a lots of tourists visit this place.
There are artists and music players almost always on Pont St.Louis,and we enjoyed it very much.And,of course,you must try Berthillon icecream which is great.
