  • After visiting Notre Dame Cathedral, take the time to walkover the bridge to the Ile St Louis. On the right as you leave the bridge is the Maison Bertillon, the best ice cream in Paris!  more »
  • ... But at a much higher cost. It should be noted that the ile st. Louis is one of the most beautiful corners of the world, but the tail and the cost are a berthillon.

  • This was one of our must dos on our most recent trip. We had read about this famous ice cream place in the Rick Steve's travel guide and knew we needed to check it out, especially since we were in Par...  more »

  • Best dessert place in town. After visiting Notre Dame, walk here for some yummy treats. The most amazing sorbet, ice cream, chocolates, and brownies in the world. There’s an option to sit down or to take it to go. For sorbets, go with mango, strawberry, and raspberry. For ice cream, the chocolate, pistachio, and salt caramel are all amazing. I’m shocked that anyone would give this place something less than 5 stars. All of the staff speak wonderful English.
  • Probably the best ice-creams in Paris for the last 60 years. The flavours are so intense it’s like eating a perfect fresh fruit. The cocoa is out of this world. Very cosy and colourful tea room. Despite the huge number of customers, friendly service. Prices according to the exceptional quality.
  • From what I heard on the internet about this place, it sounded fantastic. However, it was not too special. The ice-cream is definitely good, but could have been priced better for sure.
  • This place has a great reputation and a friend of mine was insisting that I try it. I did and I enjoyed my stay there especially visiting the island it is located in,the island next to Notre Dame. It's called the island of Saint Louis. It was a cold day so I preferred having the onion soup. And I had to try the ice cream just to see what all the fuss is about. But I noticed other people having their lunch and pretty much all of them were ordering the very same thing which was some kind of leg quarters of chicken with vegetables on top, probably was their specialty
  • Came just before closing. Ice cream area has no seating, other side is order at table but wasn't available at the time (no problem). A lot of different flavors to choose from, we came in winter and the place was literally empty.. Unfortunately they don't allow you to try even 1 flavor (again, no problem). The issue I have with this place is how extremely stingy they are with the size of their scoops of ice cream, they were closing and the boy serving us literally spent 10 seconds knocking ice cream off the sides of the scoop to make it a smaller 2 scoop haha. At the time all I could do is laugh cause we spent €10 on a 2 scoops in a cup for me and my wife and they couldn't just scoop and put it in the cup, he had to make sure they're was no excess given. Oh well.. Tourist won't mind come summer.
