The name says it all – superb chocolate taken seriously. So seriously they produce their own chocolate from ground beans, rather than buying in couverture (high quality processed chocolate) from a larger concern. The standard range is excellent but it’s worth popping by the boutiques to see the seasonal treats and designs for occasions such as Halloween. Summer’s range includes chocolate pots topped with delicate flowers, and giant buttons flavoured with dried fruits. We love the bars for people on special diets too: they include chocolates made from buffalo and almond milks, as well as sugar-free dark and milk.

There's also a branch in Chelsea (89 Lower Sloane Street, SW1W 8DA, 0845 270 6996) and a concession inside Selfridges.

What an absolute delight! This store has to be up there in my top 3 places to ever be at point final! Some of the finest,tastiest chocolates can be found in this pretty store!

Yes they aren't cheap but not so expensive that you break into a cold insufferable sweat. Though their macaroons are tweeny weeny ,they are simply the best London has to offer! Wow! What a way to blow some cash! They have the smoothest hot chocolate and creamiest ice cream too! Seriously, it's the place to indulge and indulge in style.

O myyyy - are these the best chocolates I have tasted? YES! Along with the taste there is also a fantastic range and come Easter time this is increased to amazing Easter eggs and small eggs of all different flavours.

The shop did have a little funny smell on the Saturday morning we turned up but the lady serving was friendly & helpful and there was also a tonne of freebees - of which were really good chocolates!
We went for a beautiful banana & cinnamon egg, yuzu & ginger egg, one of their famous pistachio pearls and finally the liquid salted caramel. All of them were AMAZING! Delicious chocolate coating a gorgeous soft inner centre.
I could spend hours going through all the different chocolates and creating a lovely selection bag. 
The prices aren't ridiculous but are not cheap however they had some sale Valentine chocolate and we got a massive box (rrp £25) for £5 - cannot wait to try them as they were packed with some of the other flavours I wanted to try - passion fruit "O", dark truffle & white chocolate pearl. I haven't even started on the rest of their O range or their standard couture chocolates; basi & lime, coconut praline, apple crumble.
They also have lots of bars which you can purchase - not as beautifully presented but nonetheless fabulous treats - and these slabs also consist of 2 which would be suitable for people with allergies to cows milk - goats milk & almond milk chocolate. Dying to try those!
Overall a lovely shop, decorated in a modern way, with gorgeous chocolates presented in a fab way. Cannot recommend enough!
