We looked forward to this visit! and weren't let down. The only problem was we couldn't buy the beautifully decorated shoes they had made and painted from chocolate, as too fragile. We happily bought some more hardy bars etc as gifts, and the lovely people at the shop helped out with plenty of bubble wrap. It's worth the detour, you... More

What visit to a quaint village isn't complete without some home-made chocolate? Definitely stop here on your way to the hike for the views - a great boost to get you through! Yummers!

Visited here after being told how wonderful it was by the local tour bus driver, really! it is a very small shop and definitely not an attraction, which has some exotic sounding chocolate, which are very expensive. You can look through the window and see them making chocolate, but there is no actual information. The staff member totally ignored us... More

Thank you very much for your review. As you would have seen we have a tiny store and putting information up about our how we hand make our chocolates is something we are working on. We do ask our staff to engage with customers and explain how our chocolates are made as much as possible and we are disappointed that... More

Some flavors are good, but some are just average. I have had better handmade chocolate from Makana in Kerikeri or Smith+Caughey Queen street (Level 2). The shop is also quite small. Nice to buy a few to indulge yourself while you are in Devonport but I still prefer the chocolate from Makana.

We visited here last week. Good range of chocolates. A little pricey tho. Did have to indulge and purchased a few, and they did taste great. Well worth the visit and the taste!

Thanks for your review, we're glad you liked them. We use really good quality chocolate and traditional handmade chocolate making techniques, it takes a lot longer to make the chocolates but the delicious taste makes it worth it! We hope to see you again. More

After our tour of Devonport we walked from the wharf to the chocolate shop. We were able to watch the ladies preparing chocolate through the window at the rear of the shop and purchase some exquisite chocolates. E prices are not cheap, but the quality of the chocolates are well worth the price. We have made a bit of a... More

We travelled with 2 children by ferry to Devonport expecting the chocolate "factory" to be a highlight. Unfortunately the lady in the shop is far from engaging and the factory is a simple window through to the operations. We were maybe expecting a little conversation, perhaps about the process, etc. wouldn't be difficult and I think in small villages such... More

Yes they have lovely chocolates, but soooo expensive. I took my mother there as a treat but she was astonished at the price. Definitely a place for a single specimin; to buy a box would require a second mortgage.
