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.

Visited Pierre Marcolini at the Grand Place with my sister on last year's Valentine's Day when we were in Brussels. The store was easy to find and the staff were friendly when helping us choose our macarons. The macarons tasted amazing and we would definitely come back for them! Certainly a must-try!

Brussels is not exactly a nice city, in my opinion, but it has excellent shops. And Marcolini's praline paradise is an example. Besides the famous coffers, one can also design a personal box in the second floor. Macarons are also excellent. 1.80€ a piece but absolutely worth it. Very friendly staff.

Good chocolate: the only shop I found not using palm oil. The other famous local brands are using all palm oil and then they sell for high price, cheap fake chocolate. Marcolini sell real chocolate. Thank you for this.

This is one of my 2 favorite chocolatiers in town (the other being Frederic Blondeel). The chocolate is so smooth and perfect. Makes a wonderful gift.

They have a shop in the main Arcade in town and also in Louise. We ordered a range of different cakes "une Bouche de Noel" ; white chocolate... More
