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... More

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 !

Unbeatable quality and flavour. Just delicious. Expensive as its quality. So many options, including financiers, which I just loved (even more than the chocolates, lol). Worth every euro spent, the best!

If you are a chocolate lover, look no further! The variety of chocolates here was incredible and the flavors so deep and sophisticated. It's not your childhood chocolate shop, but a real adventure in gourmet chocolates. Most of our party found the chocolates to be too spicy but I loved every bite!

Pierre Marcolini is one of the biggest names in the chocolate world. His chocolates are like nothing you have ever taste! He blends chocolate with all kinds of spices making it more innovative and creative than the traditional "pralines". And the mix is always perfect, not too strong, neither too bitter nor too sweet. It is a bit expensive but... More

This is NOT an attraction. I bought chocolates from this shop when I visited Brussels last and brought them home as a gift. My friend opened the box while I was there and there was one missing! So I emailed the shop and told them and when I visited next they delivered a box of their champagne truffles to my... More

This is like the Chanel of chocolate - it doesn't get any better. It's pricey but unbelievably amazing chocolate. Marcolini chocolate is like nothing I've ever had. If you love chocolate GO HERE.
