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.

After reading about the various chocolate shops in Brussels that this is probably the premier chocolate shop. They let me sample the dark and milk chocolate and they were too strong for my taste. The gentlemen helping wouldn't quit though. He insisted on making me try other products. I sampled the white chocolate and thought it was the best white... More

While in Brussels you HAVE TO check out Pierre Marcolini Chocolates. Belgium is known for their chocolate, and rightfully so. However, this also means that there will be lots of junky imitators trying to sell mediocre chocolate under the facade of "Belgian Chocolate". Pierre Marcolini is NOT one of these places. The chocolate from this store is pure and divine.... More

Helpful staff explained the different boxes, we bought the introductory one. The chocolate is divine & the flavours intense...I loved them!! For me they are worth every penny as I have never tried anything like this chocolate before.
