This restaurant is ideal to quickly nip into to have a "heavenly" hot chocolate together with delicious pastries! On a Cloudy, Rainy or Cold Day it works wonders not just for your body but also for the soul! Good Variety of Coffees and Teas as well as Smoothies ... some snacks too! Note that it shuts at 5.30 pm sharp;... More

This is the worst chocolaterier i have ever visited. Not only that the ladies don't wear gloves when putting the pralines in the box... yuck ... They are over all totally rude and not nice at all. The chocolate tastes average. Taste victor et Hugo in Paris or neuhaus pralines.... Much better.... Totally disappointed...

When you visit Antwerp you MUST try this chocolat. The pralines are the best in the world! You can buy them in the shop but there s also a Tea room where you can try their beautiful pastry! People come here from all over the planet, to take some chocolat home! A Must see and taste when visiting Antwerp!

Heavenly chocolate! No words to describe the experience! Yes, the prices are a bit high, but eventually... You get what you paid!

Del Rey has taken the chociolate/artisan biscuit store to a new level. And for Belgium, that actually means something if you consider what Belgium has produced as regards top chocolatiers. Del Rey takes you away from reality and drops you in a classy oasis of sugary pleasure! They Display great attention to detail in the products they offer both food/non-food.... More

Yep, worth the money. Forget about carting home Leonidas. Even the local Belgians agree this is the best chocolate.

The cocolates are a bit pricey - more than 3 times the price of Leonidas . That said- the chocolate is superb . The macaroons are supreme and the marshmallows are full of flavour! Would come back here again and again and again . Don't forget to take some home! ( but eat it fast! They are filled with cream... More

The price is pretty OK for this fabulous looking place. It is within walking distance from Antwerp central station. I recommend you guys to take a sip of hot choco... More

The chocolate is OK (even though there are many better chocolatiers in Belgium), but the patisserie is world league. Try the subtle vanilla and passion fruit pie "Papillon". Or the marvellous creations with chocolate, raspberry or pistachio mousse. As the shop is close to the Central Station, you can just add a little something to your train trip back to... More
