Nice place to sit and watch the world go by, or collide! Good selection of meat and sea food meals at reasonable prices. Had the mussels and tiger prawns which was delicious though a bit squiffy next day. My own fault for forcing open every shell.

We were drawn to the restaurants warm inviting friendly environment. This restaurant is a chain that specialises in mussels, potato fries, waffles and beer. They have an interesting selection of mussel casserole dishes each with their unique flavours. Each casserole was very generous and costed around €17-19,00. Overall, it was a good value dinner for my husband and I with... More

Superb prompt and attentive service. Mussels always prepared perfectly. Many different recipes from which to select. If you prefer beef, the burgers looked mouthwatering. Lovely location.

This is somewhat chain-like, but the moules and frites are excellent in the traditional French sense. We love moules (mussels) and Leon knows the formula. Recommend it if you are craving this wonderful dish.

Very good food and very well served. The first time I went to Leon de Bruxelles was at the Champs Ellyses and, after a few years, on a different restaurant the food was still amazing. I suggest the Moules à provençal. You won't be disappointed.

I always go to Leon De Bruxelles restraunts in evenings before my departures from Paris. One of them is located in Place de la Republique and I liked to visit it. Waiters are polite and help in searching plates. As for me, moules (mussels) a la mariniere are one of the most popular. It is worth going to LbB on... More

We chose the restaurant because they had fish and chips, one of my daughter's favorites. It turned out to be a family friendly Belgian restaurant chain. My daughter was happy with her fish and I had a Belgian chicken casserole which was very good. They had beer suggestions for every meal and I followed that recommendation and was happy with... More

Mussels were not good, the taste was boring and all the ones at the top of the pot were dry and the same was the problem with the redwine, dry and not a good taste
