We loved Pierre Marcolini's non-traditional chocolate pairings. The Earl Gray filled chocolate was my favorite, and I also loved the Violet infused dark chocolate. The shop is very modern and has a cosmopolitan vibe.

We visited here as a treat whilst on a short break to Brussels. The prices are high but it is a lovely place to visit and to be able to treat yourself to some nice chocolates. The staff were friendly and there was so much variety. We would visit again.

For all those who want to indulge hemselves in excellent quality chocolate and who love artistic creations: Pierre Marcolini is THE place to go. We were happily surprised with the new Advent creation, a calendar with 25 chocolate boxes, one for each day from Dec 1st to Christmas. The season's creations are awesome. The creation Charles Kaisin did to decorate... More

You like chocolate and pralines? Then skip this place. It's nothing but a marketing machine. Expensive and no reason to cheer about its quality or taste. There is better and nicer, for the same price or lower, minutes away.

Simply the best, better than all the rest. I've been a loyal customer since the opening of the first shop in the St. Hubert Gallery. My favourites? The éclairs and the macarons.

We stopped here on a chocolate tour and of all of the chocolates we tried, this was probably our second favorite behind Patrick Roger. Although, I think that was mostly because PR had so many unique flavors. If we had compared PR’s straight chocolate to PM’s, it probably would have been a toss-up. I would also like to mention that... More

This is a famous chocolatier shop. The best thing to do at this shop is to buy a box of chocolate which is prepared from cocoa grown from different part of the world. They all taste so different. Its a amazing journey to know such a difference and you might also end up finding your favorite cocoa. This is must... More

Don't miss this gourmet chocolatier. Fantastic chocolate with elegant flavours. The boxes look like they contain jewels! Pierre Marcolinis macarons are fantastic as well. I suggest you try all the flavours, but my two favourites are Pistachio and Passion fruit. Great gift boxes as well.
