The tiny, square truffles in the silver box, with the little spear for eating, was a great gift for friends and family. These truffle bites came in several different size boxes, and were pricey, but I've never had such rich chocolate flavor concentrated in a small bite size. Well worth the price.

a tiny gem of a shop that carries the best chocolates, and the best hazelnut-chocolate spread, in Paris. The chocolate animal sculptures in the front window are spectacular. When I visited, the woman in the shop was dusting them with a special brush, with the care and attention of a surgeon. Combine this with a visit to Patisserie Secco across... More

This tiny shop is probably one of my favorite "chocolaterie" in Paris. The staff is really nice and very helpful. I would highly recommend the truffles. French artisanat at its best, very delicate and traditional.

We visited the shop with cousins who had bought from it on a previous visit to Paris. It is amazing with an extensive range of first class chocolates. The whole display is a delight with figures ranging from tiny animals for a few Euros to enormous sculptures. The truffles, which we bought, are "to die for". Not cheap but excellent... More

Splurged on a box of tiny truffles... They are some of the best I've had! I have been reading about all the wonderful chocolates in this area of Paris, and was not disappointed. They also have some beautiful chocolate sculptures. Crazy expensive prices, but if you have the cash, this is worth the splurge.

The truffles are each small pieces of heaven. My wife and found this place by accident as we were killing time walking about. We have tried many chocolate places in London, Paris, Brussels and New York and like these truffles the best. The staff are friendly and happy to speak English. There are beautiful little chocolate carvings and molded pieces... More

Reluctantly went on a chocolate tour with my wife. Second stop was at Jean Charles Rochoux chocolate shop. Must have gone back three or four times and spent $$$ each time. Warm, friendly people (between my tourist French and their English) in the shop and on one trip Rochoux came out and spoke to my son and I for several... More

This left-bank chocolate shop sells a tool to scrape the perfect chocolate curl. How cool is that? Chocolates are also VERY high quality.

I found out about Jean Charles Rochoux's small chocolate shop just before we came to Paris this October. It was the best discovery of our trip. I have tasted all of the top chocolates in the world and this has to be the best chocolate I have ever tasted. We tried both the truffles and ganache chocolates (we like dark... More
