  • Time Nice which starts welcoming a garden tropical agteable and informative follow-up d a very interesting demonstration of culture and harvest of cocoa or you can enjoy the different tastes of the cocoa to the chocolate. Visit and tasting after an hour but do if you take a walk on the side of Pointe Noire

  • Having worked during our professional life in the field of chocolate, we wanted to discover this local and craft House. We have not been disappointed, the visit of the garden with cacao trees, plants various fun questions etc, and environmental well arranged, then the demonstration and tasting of chocolate, really appealed to us. To recommend

  • We were not left to do that, but as we were right next door we went. No regrets. The visit was very nice and the explanations provided by the hostess were clear and instructive. The tasting was very good also. I think that this is worth the price if you are interested. Cocoa lovers, go ahead.

  • Highly recommend you go here! the garden is beautiful and cool. the demo is good but not great, it's hard to do really great demo over and over, but the chocolate is amazing! If you are into milk chocolate you may not like it as much. they use very little sugar, but that really brings out the amazing chocolate flavors.
  • Not only do you get to see real cacao trees (which in case you were wondering DO smell like chocolate)but you also get to TRY the best hot chocolate of your life! Tours are not expensive and are offered in French and English and plenty of samples are given for you to delight your senses. At the end of the tour (which lasts about 20 minutes), you can purchase many chocolate-based products at the museum store. Do not miss if you love chocolate!
  • Nice guided session. Han recommend if you drive by. Borg English and french speaking guides. A lot of tasting and Good information.
  • Great place, English speaking but try for French you should learn it anyways. Coco almonds yes yes yes
  • nice place to spend an hour or two if you love chocolate
