“Amazing chocolate lover's heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

To be honest, I only visited this shop because of its first place in the Trip Advisor Amsterdam chart and I didn't intent to buy anything there.
But... you won't be able to resist once you get inside. I'd like to personally thank the shop's owner. You rarely can see a man so in love with his business. In his every word I felt his passion for chocolate. That was an amazing experience and great way to spend some money.
You definitely have to visit this shop!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

So much choice!!! Easy way is to let them do it for you. Make sure you get a shot and unwind with the jazz playing in the back ground.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I am currently sitting in the beautiful and cosy Chocolatl with a dark choco-shot, listening to relaxing jazz. The gentleman behind the bar is amazingly and openly passionate about everything chocolate related, and also passionate about sharing his expertise with anyone who is willing to listen. I am so glad that I made a visit to Chocolatl!

“Chocolate with a twist!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

My first time in 'dam and after reading reviews a shop I really wanted to visit!!! This is more than 'just' a shop! Erik was very welcoming and very informative, he asked what I liked, and allowed me to sample many different types of chocolate to help me decide what I liked and at no point with any pressure to buy :) his colleague was there and they were both clearly very passionate about what they do...after an hour(the longest it's ever took me to choose chocolate) of talking and trying weird and wonderful chocolates I eventually made a choice and left the shop with a variety of chocolate with chilli, and a chocolate with hot masala...neither with a nasty kick you might expect but some very pleasant flavours with a lovely after taste, and also brought bacon chocolate which you tell yourself shouldn't work but is in fact amazing and also a bar of 37% milk chocolate which is delicious and amazing 45% milk chocolate with hazelnuts...if in 'dam DO NOT miss this little gem!!! Will definitely be going back :)

“Chocolate Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you have any sort of interest or liking for the magic substance, don't rush your visit and pick a time when the shop is not too busy. Erik is a wonderful guide to the fascinating world of chocolate and it does not matter if you are a real expert or someone with just a passing interest, Erik will take the time to explain percentages, countries of origin, ways of raosting the beans or just let you try some of his amazing range of chocolates under his friendly and encouraging eye. The secret of any great shopping experience is the infectious enthusiasm of the staff and this is what makes Chocolatl, along with its beautifully organised stock, such a lovely experience. I can't imagine a better chocolate shop - don't miss it!
