Pleasant place. But did they use soya lecithin ? If you want to buy overpriced chocolates in beautiful boxes. The chocolate is nothing special. In Brussels there are so many chocolatier with the same or higher quality. The ice cream is gorgeous! Congratulations!

Its chocolates are good but pricing become tricky: Marcolini has always been reluctant to advertise the prices of its boxes by their weight. You knew you were buying a one, two, three tray box but whether it was 200,300, 500 grams was not an easy guess: you had to ask. The chocolates are usually small. But a new thing has... More

We visited Pierre Marcolini after Planet chocolate where we got poor quality sweets. In this store, the staff was very friendly and the chocolate itself was very high quality! Very recommend! Probably the best place to get sweets in Brussels.

You much stop by any of their locations while in the city. Their macaroons are probably the best ones I have ever had-and their chocolate is one of the best. Unfortunately you cannot buy chocolate by pieces but I highly recommend most of their chocolate.

There is no question this place is pricey, but it is pricey for a reason - quality! The quality of each and every bite of chocolate is unparalleled and is worth every penny. Every bite begs to be savoured and melts slowly in your mouth with a beautiful lingering aftertaste you wish could last a lifetime. Mmmmm delicious. I highly... More

Pierre Marcolini is my favorite chocolatier! This time I tried some new items, like the salted caramel and passion fruit macarons - yum! The only disappointment was the Speculoos flavor, which I expected to be very cinammonny but had lots of clove - will be good surprise for clove-lovers I guess :) Besides that, the store has a lovely summer...

I loved this place! First i was able to go in the first days of may when they were in renovation so they had limited options but what I had purchased was so great! They had the nicest French guy working and explaining where the cocoa comes from and about the different macaroons, I ended up trying my first macaroons... More
