My girlfriend and I visited Brussels in July. Pierre Marcolini's chocolate is the best I have ever had in my life and probably will ever have until I return to Brussels or anywhere else there is a Pierre Marcolini store. Anyone complaining about the chocolate here doesn't know what they are talking about. The chocolate bars list the cacao varieties... More

Really nice chocolate. Went there on a tour. Try the earl grey one, a must! It was not my favorite place, but it is definitely made with the finest ingredients.

If you appreciate fine food and believe it is worth spending a little extra to get the highest quality, then this is where you ought to buy your Belgian chocolate. Pierre Marcolini is to chocolate what Pierre Herme is to macarons! Definitely better than Godiva, Leonids or Cornet de la Toison d'Or.

I am a usual customer of Marcolini, that I normally appreciate. Not the other day. I went to the laboratory in Place du Grand Sablon 39, Brussels, for one eclair and a java cake. Given their sizes, I would rather define them as mere samples: the java cake, for instance, is about 12 cm x 3 cm. Let's say it... More

Let's start with excellent, multilingual service. Add the best champagne truffles in the world (and yes, we have had and enjoy Teuscher, Corné, et al), and finished with an outstanding Paris Brest eclair. My day had had its peak.

I returned to Brussels and purchased this company's chocolate truffles again. They are exquisite. But don't try to hold them for too long, they are best eaten when fresh.
