“Rather Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I never write reviews, but felt I had to for this lovely cafe! Really friendly staff, fair priced menu, nice cosy vibe where customers are so relaxed that they begin conversations with other tables (pretty unusual for Britian!). The hot chocolates are certainly something special - my favourite is the turkish delight flavour. Definite plus that dogs are allowed in - its a lovely place to go at the end of a walk, and the fuss that is made over dogs (including free dog chocolates) is very charming. I am sadly aware that many businesses in Ringwood are closing down due to the recession and high rent, but I very much hope that Oh La La Chocolat bucks this trend. If you haven't popped in already, make sure you do soon!

“Great for Chocolate Parties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We've bought some lovely chocolates from this shop (the range changes regularly) both for ourselves and for gifts. We've also enjoyed many hot chocolates and milkshakes in the cafe. It really is a gem in the heart of Ringwood.

This year my daughter wanted to have a birthday party and Gillian, one of the owners of Oh La La Chocolat, said that she could have a party in the cafe. It was a great chocolate themed party - chocolate pizzas were made, party games were enjoyed and it finished with a chocolate fondue. It was lots of fun and my daughter will certainly remember her 6th birthday. Many thanks to all of the team.

“choccy heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

sustainable, ecologically sound chocolate.....and delicious too. You won't find anything artifical at this establishment, including the friendliness of the owners and especially not any of the ingredients. I recommend it for gifts and especially a little treat for yourself. If you like something spicy go for a 'firecracker'!

“Om nom nom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The chocolates are not cheap, but we are talking hand made chocolates. They are just delicious. Chocolates are displayed in a glass case and you make your selection from the mouth watering choices, which are then put in a gold box decorated with ribbon. The cakes are just gorgeous and the service is wonderful. Gillian is the owner and chocolate maker and her enthusiasm is infectious. Once you have tasted her chocolate you will never want the cheap crap churned by the well known brands!!!

“The best chocolate shop in the world so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

It is impossible to rate this shop and cafe highly enough, it lacks nothing. The chocolate really is the best you'll find anywhere, the most delicious chocolate without all that fattiness you get in mainstream stuff, and if you're diabetic your dreams have come true! The diabetic chocs taste as good as the normal and are made with good quality natural sweetener. The salted caramel and rose and violet chocolates (all my personal favourites) seriously do make my knees go weak.

The owners of Oh La La Chocolat are among the nicest people I have ever met and have that wonderful balance of being incredibly obliging and kind and very passionate and professional about what they do. One of the owners is a chocolatier (think 'Chocolat' the film but with wonderful Irish rather than French charm, the other, her husband is a darling. They are purveyors of dream-like confections and rare service. I truly can't recommend this place enough and while I'm being greedy, am so happy we've got them all to ourselves in little old Ringwood.
