For anyone who loves macarons and chocolate, this is a must. The macarons convey each flavor really well (ie Raspberry, Pistachio, Coffee). Comparable to Pierre Herme/Paris and are considered higher-end then Laduree. The chocolates similarly have great taste profiles to try - a box of...More

Bought a Pierre Marcolini hot chocolate and it was cold. Bad experience. Got two cups, both cups were cold, taste was not good. Overrated, do not recommend.

Visited the bar of the Sablon branch after much ravings by the local guides. Had their chocolat des initially and chocolat glacé. Menu doesn't offer as many options as Godiva and I feel, while it's good, it's more hype and marketing/branding than anything else. Chocolate...More

Pierre Marcolini is one of the top shops in Brussels for chocolates, macaroons and their wonderful eclairs. My personal favorite. Several varieties of chocolates are available. The staff was friendly and professional. Perfect gift for the chocolate lover.

This is a must visit place in Belgium. Chocolate there is just amazing and expensive but worth every cent. Truffles are to die for. One amazing experience.

This is something that everyone who comes to Brussels must try ! Although pricey, Pierre Marcolini is the star of Belgian chocolate. I strongly suggest buying at least some chocolate bars or an eclair, which is divine, the absolute best I have ever tried.
