Owner description: At The Margaret River Chocolate Company we're mad about chocolate! With factories in both the Margaret River and Swan Valley wine regions of Western Australia and a concept store in Perth City, we have been making award-winning chocolate products since 1999. All three sites provide a fascinating insight into the world of chocolate, with free chocolate tastings and interactive displays, with the two factories also providing viewing windows to watch the chocolate products being made. The Margaret River Chocolate Company makes and sells a mouth-watering range of chocolate bars, chocolate coated delights, hand made truffles, novelty chocolates, chocolate sauces and much more. Both chocolate factories are open from 9am-5pm every day of the year except Christmas Day, while trading hours at the Perth City store mirror those of other city-based retailers.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Loved having afternoon tea here. Both the hot chocolate and the coffee were perfect. Im sure the aromas added a few pounds, but what a terrific selection of tasty treats and take home gifts too.
They are also in the Entertainment Book so dont forget your voucher!

“Chocolate Haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We actually stumbled upon this place when we were on our way to Margaret River. It was really a chocolate haven for chocolate lovers like me. I immediately picked up the basket and started to shop away. They also have honey and also beauty products. I was also helping myself with the free samples. We decided to have ice cream and the chocolate ice cream was good. Mom liked the rum and raisin ice cream. Enjoyed my time there. They also give you a voucher to taste their chocolate wine at their winery if you purchase something from them.

“Keeping driving, don't bother stopping here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Took family members from overseas here for souvenirs hoping to show off a bit of WA. However the service was not impressive at all!

I asked a staff member, Aaron if they had samples to taste for a few choc bars that looked rather interesting and different, as I will not purchased a bar of 100g of choc for $7.95 unknowing if I like it. He said yes and offered to us and also to a young couple who happened to walk past behind us. He then started to offer them more of other stuff and chatted to them, completely ignoring us, leaving us standing there! And we did but Aaron didn't bother with us. Did he expect us to grab some freebies and walk away because he didn't think we would purchase? The sugarfree choc was very nice
which i would love to purchase however with the way we were treated, we left without purchasing! We later visited Gabriel's Chocolate - oh wow! Thats what I called good friendly enthusiastic service and we spent our money there.

This place has become too commercialised! The last time I was here which was quite a few years ago, it wasn't like this. Now they have t shirts, gift packs and body items and plenty of staff who looked busy but not enthuse about their products and/or didn't want to be there. Shame really....
