I visited the stores in Bruges and Knokke, never Brussels, but my understanding is that they are all the same, same selection and same prices. Marcolini chocolates are not cheap but they are exquisite. Some of my favorite Belgian chocolates. They also serve super macaroons and eclairs, but chocolate is the reason to visit.

These chocolate shops are amazing. I didn't try any bad flavors. It's all amazing! The packaging is super cute. Currently it has a slide out box of a fox that comes with a scarf. Try everything!

I've been in heaven since tasting their chocolate. The flavours are exquisite, the service second to none and the packaging simply beautiful. Don't leave without tasting the desserts and if visiting during winter, the hot chocolate. I've been home less than a week and am already ordering more of their chocolate.

Personally, I do not really like macaroons because I find them extremely sweet. However, the macaroons here are super tasty, not overly sweet with a nice crunchy texture. I was lucky enough to sample the last of the green tea macaroons which I adored but they only had it until the 1st of April. I went back a second time... More

Oh My Goodness ... we arrived at this incredible Chocolate Boutique after our children visited there earlier in the day and they were right - it is amazing! We ventured upstairs to the tasting room and it only took two before I found THE perfect pairing ... Dark Chocolate and Essence of Rose. When you take a bite into the... More

whilst visiting Brussels you must sample the chocolate. Pierre Marcolini came highly recommended and I am so happy that we paid a visit. This is luxurious chocolate and the various flavours are amazing. We purchased a two layer box for about $50AUD and it was worth every cent, as well as 7 macarons (again, they are a must-buy!) if you... More

We kept getting told to try pierre marcolini's chocolates because it was the best in Belgium. It could quite possibly be the best in the world. So many different variations of chocolate! And apparently are the only ones around that make their chocolate from scratch from imported Brazilian cocoa beans which is probably why its amazing. Be sure to start... More

we tried an awful lot of samples whilst on holiday in Brussels. The sample here was by far the best quality. Lovely shop, with an upstairs area too. The only reason I didn't make a purchase was because the chocolate I wanted was only available in a selection box. If I could have just brought a box of that one... More
