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 bought chocolate from three places in Antwerp, and the chocolate from "Del Rey" is definately the best - and probably among the best chocolate, I have tasted - and as good chocolate it is expensive, very expensige. 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...

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.
