Bought chocolates and Gellato from Del Rey! Chocolates were great! I just wish that they had staff that was more enthusiastic about recommending us choices though. The more senior staff were warm and friendly the younger one looked like she was struggling to be civil. Anyway, we didn't let that ruin out chocolate experience

Really adored this cute little restaurant, as it's so much more than just chocolates! If you go here, you MUST get the goat cheese salad! Really delicious.

Del Rey has the most sublime variety of chocolate drinks served with ice cream, whipped crea, biscuits, sweets and more chocolates! Besides this the lunch menu is extensive and looked quite delicious although we did not try anything off the food menu. The hot chocolate was served in silver jugs and was most delicious. The cost for the 4 of... More

When last visiting Belgium this past March, we stopped not far from the train station at Del Ray Chocolates. We each bought a great deal of chocolate. As the attendant filled my box I told her I only wanted chocolate with nuts. When I got home I realized after eating most of them myself that maybe a third of them... More

As Swiss I had a clear view who manufactures the best chocolates in the world but I had to revise my opinion when I entered Del Rey. It's not only chocolates they produces, they produce art! It's really amazing what they have to offer, and with regard to taste they can easily compete with the Swiss. We also had a... More

During my two weeks of stay in Belgium, I've never tasted a chocolate better than what you get here. If you are here, you must try their hot chocolate. They mix real chocolate with milk in front of your eyes and the taste is so amazing that it is hard to describe

I also bought chocolate from "The Chocolate LIne" - really good too and expenisve - and "Leonidas", which is good, and cheaper.... More

Good and stylish place to have a lunch. The chocolates are great, desserts are top notch. For Macarons I would recommend Laduree, but that's my personal taste in macarons. The price is a bit higher than normal, but it's totally worth it.

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...
