    If you are in Brussels, you must go to eat to Chez Leon! It is cheap and the food is amazing! Try "La formule Leon"! A must place in Brussels!

    The waiter is very nice and helpful. I ate a beef that was perfectly medium baked as requested. The plate was full enough with food, the fries are good. On the next stay in Brussels we will go back.

    Simple, fresh and very delicious . You can try "Aux Brussels de arm" if you prefer Fine dining Restaurant to eat mussel.

    Moules et frites. This is the place to get your mussels. Snail butter sauce with cheese or tomatoes for one. Grab another in a pot: soup, white wine. Try Leon beer.

    Nicest moules-frites place on this touristy street, not only 'les cocottes' (boiled in the pot) but also gratinated - moules ou gratin & moules escargot gratinées are yum. Avoid eel “au vert” though.

    Nothing better than trying a good local restaurant, I had "A la provençale" it was AMAZING!! It's with butter, tomatoes, garlic & cheese!

    The best mussels in Brussels! They serve them in white wine or beer or you name it - lots of different recipes. Read more

    Cheaper than the 'haggling' restaurants further down. Serve mussels all year round.. High volume... Mussels were good, friendly staff.. It is touristy but that's due to it having good food.

    Bucket of Mussels are the must have food here. there are some arguments how to eat mussels in proper way, but surrounded by bunch of tourists, couldn't find answer while my visit there.

    Excellent restaurant close to The Grand Place, very fast and efficient service. Cheaply priced dishes, must try muscles. Very nice. They have loads of staff on, it's crazy.

    Superb place! The fact that no one is trying to push you in, is reason enough to try it. But the food and service is really good too! Try it!

    I think Leon is one of the best restaurants in town to eat muscles. My favorite menu is A l'escargot gratinees and french fries with a carafe of white wine.

    Chez Leon lives up to it's amazing reputation. The mussels are fantastic. Very tasty. Steak tartar is made fresh practically right in front of you. Don't let the wait dissuade you. It's worth it.

    Delicious mussels. Garlic and white wine, YUM. On Sunday's they have an all you can eat mussels menu with frites for €25.

    Friendly, easy dining experience. The mussels seemed fine to my inexperienced palate. OTOH the frites were pedestrian even by non-Belgian standards and dessert set new standards for rip-off.

    Best mussels in Brussels! Really good variety of dishes too. Service was exceptional!

    Food came very fast! A little bit too fast!! I didn't finished my soup yet, didn't get to start with the starters and they already brought the main course.. :(

    The most classic of classic belgian cuisine. Come before 7.30 on weekends or you'll have to stand in line for a table

    Just popped in on Sunday evening, no queue and all you can eat Mussels. Went for the mussels with snail butter, garlic and cheese with frites... Amazing! Thoroughly recommended.

    Order the Formule Leon, it's worth it. The frites aren't that great, but their mussels are. You can't have the best of both worlds!

    Special menu (mussels+frites+beer) has a reasonable price. Take a table outside and enjoy your meal. No wifi!

    A must-see place in Brussels. Moules-marinieres and french fries. Yummy. Some like steak as well. I prefer mussels and oysters. Finsh the meal with chocolate trufle.

    If you have to eat in the old town touristy area, this is the place to go. Good mussels and not TOO overpriced. Avoid places with a guy standing outside calling you in...

    This street is packed with high pressure sales people trying to get you into their restaurants. Went to this place because they didn't do that. Food and service was very good.

    Very big restaurant, you should get help to find lavatories in the restaurant. Try to reserve outside tables.

    Even if you're not a huge fan of seafood, you'll adore "de moules speciales" and order some fries for god's sake

    If have only little time to spend in Brussels, you at least have to come to this place and have a beer and Moules.

    Probably the only restaurant without those annoying waiters in the street trying to convince you to come inside. Tried the mussels in garlic and cheese and wasn't disappointed.

    My expectation was high but should try if you are a mussel fan. Oysters were above average.
