Oh My Goodness ... we arrived at this incredible Chocolate Boutique after our children visited there earlier in the day and they were right - it is amazing! 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

This place and the sweets you find in it, is a work of artistry. Spotlessly clean with modern decoration & high quality chocolate. It's definitely worth a visit & a try!

We kept getting told to try pierre marcolini's chocolates because it was the best in Belgium. It could quite possibly be the best in the world. So many different variations of chocolate! And apparently are the only ones around that make their chocolate from scratch from imported Brazilian cocoa beans which is probably why its amazing. Be sure to start... More

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...
