Well worth a visit to the shop. You can ask to sample any chocolate you're interested in purchasing, that's not something that's advertised, and although expensive, it's the most amazing chocolate I've ever tasted, buying salted white chocolate this time. Worth every Euro!

With so many made in Belgium chocolate shops to pick from, which one is the best one for souvenirs? Well after doing a few tours and asking the locals, this is the place. Reasonable in price, pick your own selection and box size. You cannot go wrong with the quality and the high standards. Shop is very well lit, bright... More

I visited the stores in Bruges and Knokke, never Brussels, but my understanding is that they are all the same, same selection and same prices. Marcolini chocolates are not cheap but they are exquisite. Some of my favorite Belgian chocolates. They also serve super macaroons and eclairs, but chocolate is the reason to visit.

These chocolate shops are amazing. I didn't try any bad flavors. It's all amazing! The packaging is super cute. Currently it has a slide out box of a fox that comes with a scarf. Try everything!

I've been in heaven since tasting their chocolate. The flavours are exquisite, the service second to none and the packaging simply beautiful. Don't leave without tasting the desserts and if visiting during winter, the hot chocolate. I've been home less than a week and am already ordering more of their chocolate.

Personally, I do not really like macaroons because I find them extremely sweet. However, the macaroons here are super tasty, not overly sweet with a nice crunchy texture. I was lucky enough to sample the last of the green tea macaroons which I adored but they only had it until the 1st of April. I went back a second time... More

We ventured upstairs to the tasting room and it only took two before I found THE perfect pairing ... Dark Chocolate and Essence of Rose. When you take a bite into the... More

whilst visiting Brussels you must sample the chocolate. Pierre Marcolini came highly recommended and I am so happy that we paid a visit. This is luxurious chocolate and the various flavours are amazing. We purchased a two layer box for about $50AUD and it was worth every cent, as well as 7 macarons (again, they are a must-buy!) if you... More
