Great Mussels and fries but my chicken was very salty. The waiter was very patient as I flicked through my French phrase book despite the restaurant being very busy on Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately they had no tonic for my gin but the wine and whiskey was good. We had sirloin steaks which were superbly prepared. The salad was... More

This restaurant was a lucky find. In a central location in Paris, we found this restaurant and ordered mussels and chips. We were served a huge bowl of mussels, with bread an chips.

We really enjoyed the unlimited prix fixe mussels dinner menu offered on Sundays. Very reminiscent of Belgium. Good food and a decent value for Paris. Service was good and we had a friendly waiter.

"Leon de Bruxelles" - the name say it all. This chain of restaurants specialises in offering mussels Belgian style, including the frites and the blonde Belgium beer. Mussel lovers, this is the place to go! We are hard-core traditionals when it comes to eating mussels, so Les Moules à la Provençale (with herbs and olives) were our obvious choice (and... More

If you love mussels, this is the place. They are served in a wide range of styles, very fresh and executed superbly. Come with fries. There are alternatives on the menu, but mussels is the specialty. And the Belgian beers are not to be missed!!
