Usual miss and hit with service, but food is fine

It's a reliable place to go, if you don't mind the odd rude and cold service. The food is fine. The mussels are the best bet.

This busy chain restaurant has a great formula for mussels, fries and beer. If you like this formula then GREAT, this is your place. There are a dozen different styles of steamed mussels and free flow of fries. Quite often I am invited to Leon de Bruxelles, Republique by family and I search for anything on the menu that is...

A taste of Brussels in the middle of the champs-elysees Paris. I decided to take my lunch there and the mussels were amazing to the extent that I ordered seconds. The menu is mostly mussels - different cooking recipes for mussels but they have other sea food salads as shown in the pictures attached. A great place to have lunch... More

After spending 8 hours at Disneyland the family needed somewhere to eat that catered for young and mum and dad. This place was spot on. Great food, quickly friendly service and priced well. Would highly recommend.

Yes, it's a chain, but it's a great casual place for mussels ! Always fresh and tasty, the mussels are prepared on the spot with different options. Few appetizers are available to start. There're also meat and fish, but that's the place for mussels ... with beer or simple, yet, decent white Muscadet wine. Go for a Belgian waffle for... More

We had a a great couple of meals of stake chicken and mussels. All dishes were good but the mussels are definitely the dish to order. Nice drinks to go with any dish you order are available.The fact that it is always busy is a statement in itself that it is worth a visit. if you are in the area... More

The mussels are wonderful! Had the Dijon sauce and it was perfect. Interesting to have them served with french fries, which were also quite tasty. There are various sauces that one can get with the mussels so lots of options. Mussels are their main focus but for those who don't eat mussels and come with those of us that do... More
