First of all would like to mention that staff was horrible there, at first we were ignored when we entered the place. Me and my partner understand that if you don't have reservation you might need to wait, but it always depends on staff approach, they can let you know situation and ask to wait, here they would pass by...

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.

Whenever we go to Paris this is an obligatory stop. The service is good... but the food is OUTSTANDING...Keep space for the fondant au chocolat as dessert. (ohhh and pssst why on earth did you change the salad dressing reciepe... the old was a lot better)

We had dinner here tonight. The restaurant is smallish but it is really good. Immediately upon arrival we were greeted and shown to a table. The waiter spoke good English and was very helpful. 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. The waiter was very friendly and as soon as our bread and chips were near the bottom of the bowl, he brought us more. Chips and bread... More

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
