“Special place for a stroll- a must”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Even if you are not eating here or staying here-- take a stroll. Charming, special and quaint. It is so convenient to all that if you are in paris, you really need to cross over the bridge, and check this special place out

“deserted streets on a rainy day”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Magical place. A rainy late afternoon with drizzle and fog. The fois gras shop was open and the owner offers a sample with a tiny sip of wine. A stroll past flower shops, and butcher with perfect steaks and chops in the window. Bertholin is a must stop, hungry or not. Best ice cream in Paris. Stay on the Ile for dinner in a tiny family restaurant in a sixteenth century house, where you can watch grandmere make your dinner from your seat in the dining room. Stroll the quay and pretend you live there

“ice cream vs gelato”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Had read a blog saying that Berthillon's ice cream was better than Amorino's gelato; being gelato lovers, we had to try both and ended by agreeing with the blogger. Indulge and try it yourself. There was a great toy store on the way to Amorino's, too. Otherwise, the island is lovely.

“used to be”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This beautiful island used to be one of our favorite destinations until it became too commercial. But if you've never been, go visit. Walk along the perimeter and read about the beautiful "hotels" (homes) from your guidebook.
