Everything here looks like they have been carefully planned and displayed. The price is a bit steep but do note that these are not your average chocolate. I have bought a box... More

Being in Belgium, you can't settle for a "candy bar". Fine chocolates are everywhere, and this is a bit on the "high end". While fantastic, the fee reflects the level of expertise. Glad I tried it, but a bit pricey for "everyday consumption"

So, yes, it's worth visiting P.M. and try a few different chocolate "ideas". At their Place du Grand Sablon shop visit the 1st floor as there you can see and try more options. Tasted a few and my suggest is this: make no mistake, get the Earl Grey chocolates - it's really exquisite! :)

After visiting Paris and trying their macaroons, I wanted to compare it withthe ones at Pierre MArcolini. The macaroon was good, but nuthing special in my opinion. The staff seemed very friendly though.Perhaps I should have tried the chocolate :).

After having read reviews on trip advisor, my girlfriend and I had to try Marcolini. We were shocked to find and incredibly poor service and mediocre chocolate. The staff yawned after I mentioned I had been recommended and had to try Marcolini. Which was followed by unresponsiveness and a fairly rude remarks. The chocolate is good - but not what... More

This was the best eclair I had ever had. Pricy but fantastic. We all shared a piece of one just to try it which made it worth while. Not our favorite treat here (prefer Neuhaus chocolate).

Several years ago while on a trip to Brussels I stumbled across Pierre Marcolini and my life as a chocolate lover was forever changed. The shop offers artisan chocolates and other amazing delights. The shop itself is very tasteful and the staff very pleasant and knowledgeable. This is NOT one of the tourist trap chocolate shops. This is elegant, top-of-the-line... More

Our host recommended these chocolates as the best in Brussels. There are several PM stores in Brussels, some offer pastries as well. Samples are offered when you visit. The grand cru chocolates filled with grand cru ganache are fantastic! We went to the Place du Sablon boutique a few times; its carries beautiful, artfully presented chocolates. You can buy ready...

Their presentation is like fine art. Tried the raspberry eclair. First day in the evening they were out of stock for this flavor, went back the next morning, and it was really delicious. Lovely staff.
