We were told by locals that this is the best cholatier in Brussels now. Quite modern with style. Chocolate is not cheap but quite high quality that one would be satisfied.

We visited Pierre Marcolini chocolate store during our stay in Brussels and it was absolutely amazing. The shop is beautifully set out on two levels and all the chocolates are well presented. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The chocolates are amazing and will melt in your mouth. This chocolate store was my favourite out of all the others we had visited in Brussels. Defiantly worth a visit.

I heard that Pierre Marcolini were one of the 4 best chocolate makers in Belgium. I bought chocolates at all 4. I bought maroons, box of 16 secret garden selection, chocos of the world (16), and Palets 9 fins from Pierre. Delicious chocolates, however the box of 16 chocos from around the world was missing 3 chocolates and it was sealed when opened and the box of 9 was missing 2 chocolates when the sealed box was opened. It seems weird that 2 boxes had missing chocolates to be random. I would open the seal and check your boxes before buying.

My first visit to this city/country and of course had to get Belgium chocolate to bring back home. The locals I talked to, all recommended going to Pierre Marcolini and they were, of course, right.
The place is like a chocolate lovers piece of heaven. All sorts of cool displays and 2 floors of it. So many choices and chocolates from all over the world. Additionally, this brand is not readily available in the US.
I selected "sampler" box for my work colleagues and a sampler box of dark chocolates for my spouse and a block of chocolate from Cuba.
I and many others agreed that these morsels of deliciousness are infused with flavor unmatched by other chocolatiers. They are quite pricey but worth it.
I' d go back if I am ever back in the area.

It was a very good decision to plan ahead and research on the best chocolatiers in Belgium as the minute that you walk around, there are too many shops that may tempt you but leave you unhappy. I am very particular with my chocolate as I am with wine and I am happy I have turned my partner into a chocolate lover like myself mainly because of Pierre Marcolini.

To make our purchase easy and for us to taste a great selection, we already knew that we were going to take home to Sweden the Malline Découverte which is 34 original chocolates from the Pierre Marcolini collection. It was an easy ten minutes of being inside the boutique but a memory of a lifetime as we tasted the marriage of flavours in that box that sent us to chocolate heaven.

Our personal favourites were:

1.) Mangue : A milk chocolate cream combined with a Brazilian mango jam.
2.) Palet Or : A bittersweet ganache combined with a caramel coulis, all intensely vanilla-flavoured.
3.) Pâtes d'Amandes : Encounter between a pretty almond paste and a slightly salted and caramelised Iranian cream of pistachio.
4.) Trianon Lait : A nougatine dome inlaid with caramelized ganache.
5.) Câlin Fondant : Almond praliné, Quimper flaky wafer and caramel blended with fresh Tahitian vanilla.

If you ever leave Belgium without taking home a Marcolini, we are VERY VERY sorry for you.
