The service was polite with good advice on how to eat chocolate. I only sampled a couple of the chocolates and to me it was excellent, well balanced and just pure indulgence. For one chocolate piece, expect to pay over €1.80/€2 But definitely worth it as a treat.

The chocolate here is amazing. We started a chocolate tour here and had some incredible pieces of chocolate. They have a great selection of Milk and Dark Chocolate. The people that work there were very helpful as well

The chocolate eclair here is the most delectable eclair I've ever eaten. We chanced upon this place while exploring the area and we are sad we couldn't make it back for more. We also tried the Salvador which is a pastry of chocolate mousse and raspberry, two flavours you can hardly go wrong with. Its slightly pricey for its offering,... More

An industry of chocolate! I tasted eclair but I should have taken the one with milk chocolate because the other was a little bit bitter! The shop was really a chocolate paradise

The macarons here are a regular for us, they are SO good. For me they are one of the two best in Paris- along with Pierre Herme. When visiting you must try the dark chocolate one and the passion fruit ! The macaron boxes are the most gorgeous addition, perfect for a present from Paris. Chocolates are devine as well.

Worth a trip to buy some chocolate and amazing macaroons. In a beautiful and quaint area in Saint Germain.

This was on our wish list to visit but then we removed it. Nonetheless we ended up walking past it anyway and were drawn in by their chocolate sculptures of Paris major attractions. We can’t vouch for the quality of the products inside – though the smell is incredible – but there is a large selection of products on offer.... More

Was walking around Paris and suddenly felt a craving for chocolate and entered into this store and I am big fan of the milk chocolate and had a milk bar and thoroughly enjoyed it. Worth a visit.

We stop by every time we're in Paris and stock up. We've been offered samples of different chocolates while deciding what to purchase. They do have numerous small boxes that don't break the bank if you're wanting to buy several smaller gifts as well as the larger boxes for family.
