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.

Not sure if this is the Marcolini eclair shop or the Marcolini candy one--they are two doors away from each other in the shopping center. I restricted myself to two kinds of chocolate on this trip and this was one. It was not my fav...More

They have several sites all over the city. We stopped at one that had an upstairs cafe. The chocolate is delicious, and we also had an iced chocolate drink that was decadent. This is one of the famous chocolate houses that you should not miss.

This is my favorite chocolate. Champagne Truffles are worth trying and Grands Crus are pure pleasure! Whenever I'm in Belgium or Paris Pierre Marcolini is first thing to visit.

We visited this shop during the Brussels Beer and Chocolate tour and were very impressed. The three story building is fancily decorated based upon the seasonal theme and offers tasting rooms on all three floors. The chocolate is expensive but very good and by far...More

Reputed to be the best of the best, Pierre Marcolini has always stood out from the crowd. The pralines are fantastic (amongst the best available) but the eclairs are the real stars! The hot chocolate is equally heavenly. Definitely worth the calories!
