We went here on a Thursday night for my friend's birthday and maybe since it was a weekday, we had the place all to ourselves! I think most people come here to buy chocolates but not really stay for meals. The area is actually quite huge and the tables are well-spaced so it can accommodate larger groups.

We tried some salads and pasta and it was ok. Nothing to really note about. But what takes the cake are their churros!!! It was perfectly cooked! I usually find churros to be very oily and heavy but not this one! It was the perfect balance of softness with a slight crisp on the outside. The dark chocolate sauce/dip was also very good and went well with the churros (ofcourse it's Lindt :) ) I was really impressed. A must-try!

Another unique dessert we tried was called Sweet Revenge. It is (again) Lindt chocolate lava cake. What made it quite interesting was the spiciness that came with it. I was surprise how it took away a potential "umay" factor from eating a rich chocolate dessert. Even my friend who is not a fan of chocolates loved this.

I suggest to go here for desserts and coffee. It's a nice place to chill and spend time talking with your loved ones.

Did you know they served real food at this place? I used to come here for their chocolate bouquets but my mom's been badgering us to take our lolo here for dinner. Well, next to his grandkids, nothing makes my lolo giddier than chocolate. And doesn't a restaurant with a menu of chocolate-infused dishes just sound delightful?

Sorry to disappoint you but, it might have been a bad idea. The only acceptable ones were those that didn't have a hint of chocolate for an aftertaste. But, most of them, honestly just.. seemed.. Forced.

Here's a summary of what we had:

Rosemary and Garlic Chicken (Php225) - 127851127851127851
Lacks flavor and plating was so lousy. Looked like someone just poured white sauce all over my meal. Not a pretty sight

Linguine in Spicy Dark Chocolate (Php230) - 127851127851
Imagine champorado and noodles. Yuck.

Chicken in Mushroom White Chocolate and Cheese Sauce (Php245) - 127851127851127851127851
Ok. This was yummy. My brother had two of these.

Meat Pizza (Php210) - 127851127851
Considering it took 30 mins to prepare, Why did it taste like those ready made ones you buy in the grocery? And poured your homemade sauce and topped it with whatever leftover you had in the fridge?

Pumpkin Soup (Php110)127851127851127851127851
Yas!!!

Cream of Mushroom Soup (Php108) - 127851
Don't even think about it.

Linguine in Pesto sauce with Parm-Crusted Chicken (Php258) - 127851127851127851127851
No hint of chocolate on the dish. Seems like this was the most common meal on the menu, and though it wasn't bad there's nothing extraordinary about it either.

Roast Beef Panini (Php 168) - 127851127851127851127851
I'm glad mine was completely palatable. You won't get filled with this, though. You need to order something else.

And for the dessert:

Churros with Lindt Dark Chocolate Dip (Php156) - 127851127851127851127851
Yum. Yum. Yum.

Sweet Revenge Molten Lava Cake (Php 195) - 127851127851127851127851127851
TO DIE FOR!!!

So yeah, the dessert was the redeeming factor. It wasn't a complete waste of time. I commend them for innovation and originality but you shouldn't go there to eat meals. It's an after party place. Take it from it's name, Masters of Chocolate, go there to eat Chocolate!!!

I've been wanting to come here since my sister brought it up when it opened a few years back.

Tried one of their crepes on a separate visit a few weeks ago, and I decided I would have to come back for their meals as well. Was really disappointed with our lunch there today though. I had the linguine in spicy dark chocolate. It wasn't worth 200+, the pasta was a little too soft/overcooked, could barely taste anything other than the chocolate which wasn't much. Even the grilled chicken was bland. I'm still willing to try their other offerings, just because their desserts (and their reviews) make me have high hopes for them, but they won't be on top of the list.

I came across this chocolate haven years ago. It's obvious what they specialize in. However they still made it endearing as you discover not just their unusual desserts but also main dishes all with their chocolate mark.

I had their Linguini in Spicy Dark Chocolate in Grilled Chicken. They use Lindt Chili Dark Chocolate to create an amazing balance of saltiness and sweetness we all crave for.

For photo this is their Golden Euphoria. It's namesake speaks for itself. There is mousse, sponge cake and the crunchiness of Ferrero Hazelnut. Yes bites will never be the same after trying this one.

After we got out of RUB Ribs & BBQ I immediately asked them to go somewhere else for dessert. Maitre Chocolatier came to my head since it’s not far from Reposo. I have been to the place way back 2013 so I know my friends are in for a treat.

During my visit on 2013 I tried Golden Euphoria. I’m not really into hazel nut and Ferrero so this time I opted for sweet revenge. It’s their version of molten lava cake. If you love chocolate, you will want sweet revenge!

This was sooooo good! Rich and yummy and the texture is dense and moist. The vanilla ice cream added to the overall awesomeness of the dessert! It’s everything I want my tongue to taste every day.

Initially, I was adamant to try sweet revenge because of the spicy flavor but it was not overbearing at all. It was just a nice kick and it made the dessert more exciting. Definitely one of for the books!

The best molten lava cake I had so far 128523128077🏻128523128077🏻128523128077🏻 just with the first slice, the thick and gooey chocolate oozing from the inside just slow moed from my view made me really craving to dump a big bite from it.

This is called "sweet revenge" btw and has a spicy kick every after bite but with the hot molten chocolate plus the cold vanilla ice cream that comes with it just made the experience unforgettable.

Will definitely be back for this one. For sure. 128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻128541

We accept the lava we think we deserve.128521127851

Located in Jupiter Makati. This place has chocolate on every single thing on their menu and they don't only serve dessert here. Imagine chicken with chocolate, pasta with chocolate. Sounds strange but I have to try it personally because I only came here for dessert.

For the place I really like the ambiance and their white crisp couches. You can also see chocolate all over the place. Half of their cafe is a shelf full of chocolates for sale.128525

Their best seller is the Sweet Revenge which is a spicy molten lava cake. The spice comes after you've eaten half of it. It is good for sharing already. I also wanted to try the Golden Euphoria which is a hazelnut mousse cake. We can't decide which dish to order so we ended up ordering both desserts. 128514128061

Both desserts were very decadent and sinful but it was very sweet. I would like to go back and try their main course next time.

Whenever I visit Jupiter area, I would always come across this restaurant and made me curious for me to try. Although they are competiting with the other restaurant along Jupiter Makati, although this restaurant somehow stood out.

I would suggest ordering the Golden Euphoria Ferrero Hazelnut Crunch Cake
Tempting chocolate hazelnut mousse on a velvety chocolate sponge cake topped with the enchanting Ferrero Hazelnut

Of course the most important thing is you don't leave this restaurant without trying their ferrero hazelnut crunch cake. The price is really cheap and the sweetness is enough to satisfy any dessert lover. Of course don't forget to fill up the survey as they would give you a sweet treat in order to improve their service. #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway

There are certain occasions wherein I crave for chocolate. My craving is limited to Dark Chocolate and the Dark Chocolate with Mint. There are only a handful of individuals who like this odd pairing, i am one of them. It is an acquired taste, similar to ones who like blue cheese.

There are limited pastry shops who offer chocomint cakes, odds are in my favor this time as Maitre is one of them.

Tonic Tier. Lindt Dark and Mint Mousse Cake. This is one of the best cakes I've ever tasted in a while. This is a biased opinion because of my affinity with dark chocolate with mint combination. The semi sweet dark chocolate is perfect for those who was born without the sweet tooth. Now, add mint...it is a match made in pastry heaven. Bittersweet notes with refreshing flavors.

And oh, they also sell myriad variants of Lindt.

My friend and I shared a dessert called Sweet Revenge (Lindt Molten Lava Cake). We were intrigued with the mix of chocolate and chili. I expected it'll be something similar to Gelatissimo's chili chocolate flavor but it wasn't. I didn't taste the chili even after we finished the whole dessert. The lava cake was moist but the filling didn't ooze out. My lava cake experience is does not feel complete without the oozing out thing. Haha. But overall, the taste was good! It was not that sweet and it did not give me the "umay" feeling right away.

After dinner at lazy bastard's, we were looking for a place to chill and have something sweet. We were walking along jupiter when we saw this chocolate shop. It doesn't look like a restaurant from the outside but when we looked inside, we were surprised to see tables so we went in 128517

The place may look too plain and simple (sad and lonely), the desserts compensated for it and made us happy happy. 128513

We ordered one large gelato (3 scoops for around 160-170). The gelato was amazing, especially the dark chocolate. The flavor was deep and intense but not bitter bitter. The right kind of darkness -- the one that will not make you question the decisions you've made in your life 128514128540 It was goooood -- rich and creamy and thick!128076 We also ordered the Sweet Revenge cake. It's molten spicy lava cake with vanilla ice cream. It was sinfully goood! 128525 At first, we were trying to identify what's making it spicy, is it the ice cream? the cake or the sauce? It was hard that it was almost gone when we realized it was the sauce. 128517 It was good because the cake was moist and it was not overly sweet. It was sweet, spicy and bitter all at the same time. Ice cream + Moist Cake + Spicy sauce = 128525127881128077

Service was excellent! Servers were all warm and nice. 128513

I had a big smile on my face when I finally had the chance to enter this Chocolate House dubbed as Maitre Chocolatier last week! I've been seeing this place on the list nearby and was really curious about it. I've also watched a tv show that featured their store and that adds a growing curiosity for their desserts.

The place is located at Jupiter st., just few steps away from Lazy Bastard. The interiors were classy and looks like a casual dining restaurant, actually. There's also a section for take-out choices of different brands of chocolates, spreads and candies such as Haribo and others more.

We tried the Golden Euphoria for everyone to share while both Jenn and Kirby tried their hot chocolate.

We all liked the Golden Euphoria due to its scrumptious taste and velvety texture. It was topped with a big piece of Ferrero chocolate and garnished with chocolate sauce. Just looking at the plating makes you drool for it, and having the first bite feels like heaven! 128525

A precious place for Chocolate lovers like me! 127851127851127851 Looking forward to trying more of their cakes and chocolate-infused entrées!

I've been wanting to dine in this place for ages, and I finally did last night. I'll be honest. I expected a lot from Maitre Chocolatier, because a friend highly recommended their Ferrero Crunch Cake.

Upon entering the café, my heart fell. It was empty. It was a Friday night, for crying out loud! The staff were genuinely surprised and, quite frankly, unprepared that someone decided to dine in the café. I think their chefs were asleep because I think I heard one of the waitstaff say, "Gising na ba si Chef?" Moreover, one of the cooks/chefs was wearing a sando while preparing our entrées. It made me laugh uncomfortably because, again, I was expecting a lot, and I tagged a friend along!

Let's talk about the ambiance. I expected (yes, I will be using this word a lot) it to be homey but romantic, because that's the impression I got from their Facebook page. I hate to say this, but my friend enlikened the place to an upscale "karinderia".

For our dinner, I opted for the Stir Fry Beef in Dark Chocolate and my friend got the Grilled Pork Chop in Dark Chocolate with White Chocolate Tartar Sauce. There was nothing spectacular about both dishes (except for the White Chocolate Tartar Sauce, which we both liked) and presentation was non-existent.

Then our desserts and cocktails came... And damn, they were the polar opposites of our entrées! Beautifully presented and tasted heavenly. We ordered three desserts, just for fun: Sweet Ebony (Lindt Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake), Angel's Confection (Nutella Mousse Cake), and Golden Euphoria (Ferrero Hazelnut Crunch Cake). Now I know why foodies love Maitre Chocolatier's Golden Euphoria. I am in love. It's one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever had.

As for the cocktails, my friend ordered a Mystique Meadow (Crème de Menthe & Frey White Chocolate) and I got an Irish Midnight (Bailey's and vodka with dark chocolate). We enjoyed both cocktails, which cost less compared to other handcrafted cocktails.

Overall, aside from the desserts, my experience at Maitre Chocolatier was just okay. Would I go back? Probably for afternoon coffee and cakes or just to pick up a whole Golden Euphoria. For all I know, the café's ambiance might be different in broad daylight.

After a filling dinner at Hossein's, we decided to drop by at Maitre for desserts.

GOLDEN EUPHORIA
I love this chocolate sponge cake. It's soft and moist and has the right level of sweetness. The chocolate hazelnut mousse on top was delicious. We had to order another slice.

SWEET REVENGE
I like dark chocolates but this molten lava cake did not impress me that much. It was good, please don't get me wrong. I probably expected way too much basing on how it looks. This cake is spicy and I like that they didn't overwhelm it with too much heat. Tama lang

The Sweet Revenge 128149 Dark chocolate molten lava cake made from Europe's finest Lindt Excellence Dark 70%. Served with Vanilla Ice Cream. First time to try such yummy lava cake in Manila. I would really like to recommend this place esp for couples, romantic food with romantic ambiance. 128525 You can even buy a Ferrero boquet with teddy bear here! 128540 Will come back to try their food that's also made with chocolate! 127851127851127851

For chocolate lovers, this might be your disneyland. 128522127926127881
I had found here a frappe version of my favorite flavor in Gelatissimo which was Chili Chocolate !!! 128525128525128525128525

It was superb! The chocolatey goodness rich, sweet and with spiciness as an after effect. The whipped cream has also a nice smooth and not easy to break or dissolve texture.
I was with Sam C which she had the Nutella one and you could really determine that they put generous amount of Nutella in it though it doesn't have whipped cream on top.

We had the place for ourselves since no one apart from us was there. Solo namin. 128513
The staff were so friendly.
Good timing we had the first try on their promo which if we like their fb or instagram page we could pick a prize. So we tried, and thank God we both won the prize.128561128074
I wanna go back soon and try their Golden Euphoria which everyone was talking about.

Chocolates before the day ends is like a cherry on top of a cake - it makes everything complete!

I love how thick the chocolatey experience these desserts offer!

Definitely an ecstatic haven for all the sweet tooth out there! 128077
