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

This was my idea of heaven. Lots of different and exotic types of chocolate to choose from and amazing quality. All the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Can't wait to eat all my purchases :)

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
