Snuck in for a cheeky hot chocolate and window shop on my way through the arcade towards the metro on my way out of Brussels. The hot chocolate was so indulgent and so delicious. I wish I could have tried an eclair or macaroon. But would recommend solely on the basis of the hoy chocolate. Yum!

This was one of the final stops on a chocolate tour that we did and we went back the next day and spent a minor fortune at the store. The service was great - and one of the more senior men behind the counter spent time answering my questions and giving me brief history on what makes their chocolate different.... More

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.
