Can't go wrong with any flavor. I don't know how they make this taste so incredible but don't pass up a cone or dish if you walk by. The line may be wrapped around the block but that is just a testament to its greatness. Go for it!

We made it 2 minutes before closing and got right in without having to line up. The price was average and the taste was amazing! We got one raspberry and one coconut. They were so good! Not much else to say but if you are near Notre Dame it is a quick walk.

Having read other reviews, I wish we had only stopped by for the ice cream. We instead had a full lunch and it was better than average but overpriced for the quality. $5 large glasses of Coca Cola and $15 sandwiches are a bit steep especially if you have children to feed. The ice cream is really what makes Berthillon... More

First of all I have to say that I am not an Italian! I ve heard the best about Berthillon's ace cream, and for a good reason cause his ice cream is great. I had the salty caramel, the dark chocolate and my mother has the vanilla and the passion fruits. Especially the caramel was awesome, with real chips of... More

We found ourselves grabbing a cone whenever we walked back to our hotel each night, and it was winter! Great ice cream and experience. Their flavors are simple and we haven't had a bad scoop yet.

Came here because of multiple places saying it was the best ice cream. They were not wrong! Probably the richest ice cream I've ever had and the salted caramel was just heavenly! A must go place when in Paris.

Be ready to queue for a taste of what has been called the best ice-cream in Paris. I can't say I have sampled many ice cream spots in the city but I can say for sure that the salted caramel ice-cream from Bertillon is ridiculously good. They had other exciting flavors too (tried the pistachio as well) but the salted... More

This is by far the best ice cream I've ever had (and I had ice cream at Heston Blumenthal's). Go, try it, you won't be disappointed :)

This review is for Berthillon's Tea Room next to the ice cream shop. Berthillon's ice cream continues to be delicious, and the original shop here is a pleasure if there is not a line. Berthillon ice cream is served at most every cafe throughout Paris so that unless you are in the neighborhood, there is no need to wait in... 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.
