We stopped by Pierre Marcolini at the edge of the Upper Town, in the Royal Galleries and in Bruges. The hot chocolate is beyond words, the ice cream cups are wonderful and the eskimo pies are unbelievable. We also bought some very good chocolates to bring home. Top flight and knowledgeable service!

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! Heavenly damn good!!

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 attending to many customers. So I went upstairs. I bought a box of 16 palets... More

I dont have words to describe the Pierre Marcolini products, I always fancied nice chocolates and some of the best world brands, but this one is just wow. the store is beautiful, and outside looked gorgeous, not sure if it was a season decor, but was breathtaking. Is hard to choose anything because you want all. I tried their icecreams,... 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!
