We had searched this store out after bypassing many other chocolate stores and were pleased by the pretty interior that looked like a small two story chapel devoted to chocolate. All the boxes were very elegantly arrayed..think Tiffany's but for chocolate. There are no tastings. We purchased multiple boxes of chocolates and when we ate them it was a let... More

I think these are really the best chocolates in Brussels. I absolutely cannot stop eating them!! The staff here are really courteous and helpful, so if you don't understand, or don't know much about chocolates, they are really happy to explain. I love the earl grey praline, but I think all of their chocolates are great. They are also packed... More

Mouthwatering texture and flavor. The macaroons were delicate, balanced (not too sweet, not too tart) flavors. The cookie’s exterior has a nice crisp coating that melts away as soon as you hold it in your mouth. The flavors were uniform in having this perfect texture and perfect balance of cookie and cream.

I expected to get the best macarons ever, and so it happened. Really, I cant choose between their tastes! Each one reveals its ingredients without them masking one another. Eclair was also top. Can wait to taste the rest of the sweets next time I go to Belgium.

This store looks like a high end jewellers that hasn't noticed that all the diamonds and jewels have been replaced with chocolates and macaroons. We bought a box of chocolate from here and they were all delicious. A real mix of flavours and styles and each one looked as good as it tasted. You can buy individual chocolates, macaroons, chocolate... More

This is Pierre Marcolini boutique in 2 floors at the heart of Brussels with eye catching outdoor and conceptual interior design dedicated to chocolates and patisseries! If you are a fan of him, or you are a chocolate fanatic, it is a must to go and visit the place and don't forget to test the chocs too!

Beautiful store and beautiful chocolate! What a treat it was to visit this store. We had the salted caramel macaroons here and they were the best I've ever had. There are a lot of chocolate shops in Brussels, but don't miss out on this one or you'll regret it!!!
