The hot chocolate was amazing. I'd compare it to Angelina's in Paris. I also brought the noisette bar home and it was scrumptious. Hope I can buy some again!

In a chocolate paradise like Brussels, Pierre Marcolini really stands out from the crowd. The place reminds of an exclusive jewelry shop, rather than a chocolaterie. Pralines are fantastic but eclairs are the real stars. Don't miss the eclair creme brûlée and the eclair Paris-Brest!...More

I am not a chocolate lover. So I can't tell the difference between inexpensive chocolate and expensive chocolate. But I know this chocolatier is very famous and popular even in Japan. So I dropped at this shop out of curiosity. Shop clerks looked very busy...More

A place to visit for every gourmandise (gourmand). Unfortunately I have to admit I fell in love with those sweet creations by Pierre Marcolini (and the quality), so I'm sure, I'll come back

I got the Java cake, it's a bit expensive but totally worth it if you want to indulge yourself every once in a while. Not to be missed, delicious!

P.Marcolini takes chocolate to a completely new level. This is the modern art of chocolate! Everything in the shop talks about the same story, completelly different from other chocolate shops. This is deffinitelly the Magrite in Brussels chocolate world!

Great service and lovely chocolate at a prime location. Good prices for high quality chocolate. The coffee could have been better, but it was still more than decent. Avoid places such as Nauhaus and Leonidas and go here instead.

Cher Marcolini ? Vous plaisantez j'espère ! Déjà il faut se renseigner sur la fabrication, oui, c'est bien cela qui fait la différence. Ici la fève est torrefiée ds ses ateliers, des fèves de qualité, ce qui n'est le cas d'absolument pas le cas de la plupart des chocolatiers (même luxe) Je viens aussi de Bordeaux, je ne sais pas avec qui vous comparez mais sur bordeaux même si le chocolat est bon il n'est pas fabriqué dans les même conditions. Oui un chocolat de qualité ça se paye, sinon quand c'est moins cher, ce que vous payez c'est l'esclavagisme et l'exploitation des travailleurs de Côte d'Ivoire. Il y a un moment faut rester sérieux.. aussi, le côté Snob ??? euh personnellement je ne suis ni riche ni spécialement bien habillée, j'ai toujours eu un accueil extrèmement poli et attentionné dans les boutiques Marcolini, justement c'est l'inverse de ce que vous décrivez, le service et le sourire sont systématiquement au rdv (en tout cas dans les boutiques Bruxelloise, à Paris c'est différent, c'est prétentieux) Je crois que parler de Snobisme quand on vient de bordeaux c'est un peu la poele qui se fout du poelon ^^
