Only 5-10 mins walk from notre dame batobus station. Little needs to be said about Berthillion that hasn’t already been said. This most-famous of all Parisian glaciers makes what many consider the best ice cream in the world. Go see for yourself! I was a fan of their glace chocolat until I saw the light and switched to the chocolat... More

So blown away by the amount of flavour in their icecream! It's only a little scoop, and not cheap, but I loved it all the same!!!

In front of the original Berthillon, there are about 2 cafes with the exact logo of Berthillon but they are not Berthillon, they just copy the logo and take advantage of .... when you ask those scammers, they say yes we are the famous Berthillon !

Every time we come to Paris, we go here for the best ice-cream and gelati. We're never disappointed by the flavours, although I would like bigger scoops for the money. The service is always excellent, and being located on the island makes the walk there a bit special.

This ice cream is some of the richest, creamiest ice cream that I have ever had and I have sampled many many ice cream shops across Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Southern Africa. You can get a takeaway cone or cup but to get the full Berthillon experience accept that you are going to have to spend a... More

Very good ice-cream. I tried coconut and amaretto; both were excellent. It's too bad they are closed 2 days a week. We went at like 1pm on a Wed and were the only ones there. Be warned that the flavors are very true to the respective foods. My husband was shocked to see how much like rum the rum-raisin was.... More

My husband and I went here for a snack (just before noon), and were seated and served with no problems. Several hours later when we walked by, the lines were growing. Hours after that, you'd be getting your treats after waiting way-too long!

About 20 years ago someone recommended the old Berthillon shop (a few blocks from the sit-down place). I went to check it out and was surprised but how small it was and the fact that it had no seats and you had to stand in line outside to make your purchase. I've been going there ever since. My favorite is... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood 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.
