we tried an awful lot of samples whilst on holiday in Brussels. The sample here was by far the best quality. Lovely shop, with an upstairs area too. The only reason I didn't make a purchase was because the chocolate I wanted was only available in a selection box. If I could have just brought a box of that one... More

I love chocolate, especially gourmet chocolate from chocolatiers. My favourite chocolatier is Pierre Marcolini. I've done my fair share of sampling from various places in the world, and Pierre Marcolini is the winner. It's so good I even get it delivered. The chocolate comes in an ice-cooled package so the chocolate doesn't melt - the level of detail is incredible!... More

I lived a few blocks from the Sablon area of Brussels where there are at least 3 chocolatiers, but Pierre Marcolini was my favorite. The exterior faces the Sablon where there is parking, but almost always full. The shop has modern, rich decor and the staff is friendly and many languages are understood-which isn't completely necessary but helpful. This chocolate... More

I tried a lot of hot chocolate during my time in Belgium and Pierre Marcolini was the best by far. If you're like me and enjoy a thick hot chocolate that's not too sweet you should try Pierre Marcolini's. Its made with 70% dark chocolate and best served hot/warm so that it thickens up a bit, its really smooth like... More

The Sablon area is the place to be for some upper class shopping and Pierre Marcolini the chocolatier you are looking for. Nice and small chocolate bombs of flavour.

There are so many chocolate shops in Belgium. Honestly, it must be so hard to be a chocolate maker in this country. However, there are a few who appear to have risen to the top of the chocolate making chain, and one of those is Pierre Marcolini. I read a few rumours before I visited the store, one was that...

Ordered their Chocolat Noir sans Sucre from Venezuela. It was a piece of art. Couldn't have asked for a better one. Finished the whole chocolate bar in seconds.

Visited the store today at Sablon and must say it is a great experience. As you step in to the store you are made to feel special.. The displays are attractive, chocolates out of the world and the service exquisite. Tried the quattro spice and trust me it is a must have.. Couldn't resist picking a pack of these delicious...

After many wonderful shops in Paris and Brussels, finally decided to purchase macarons to take home in this shop on our last night in Europe. The girl was very patient and helpful in making our choices. Have been enjoying them at home, and they are delicious-light, yet a dense creamy center. Wish we had bought more of everything !
