Despite the fact it was really busy, the service was quite friendly. I didn't know exactly what to buy, so I just followed the flow and got some Kouignettes. Really really good. Like a small juicy escargot pastry with several flavours.

This is a really lovely place to feast on sweets, cakes and particularly macarons. We came across this Chocolaterie by accident, and were so glad we did. The macarons are absolutely delicious.

This shop offers self-serve choice of a wide array of chocolate. I chose three different varieties of dark chocolate to give to a friend along with a bottle of Bordeaux! Service was excellent.

I am from London and have the luck of knowing some very fine chocolate shops. For example Hotel Chocolat, a middle range priced chocolate shop but for extremly good quality chocolate. Maison Larnicol in Bordeaux, not only offered poor and unfriendly service (the service seemed...More
