Every time I'm in Brussels I just have to visit this review for its atmosphere and quality food. Mussels any style you like them. I prefer them just cooker natural in white wine. It's gorgeous

We have eaten here many times and we love the ambiance. In this time of crisis with quite a number of restaurants in central Brussels closing, there is still a huge clientele Chez Leon. They are known for their mussels and fish, and they don't disappoint. But having said this, the service has always been and continues to be very... More

Truly tasty mussels that I ever ate. Good service and nice design. A little bit pricey but it worth that. A huge choices of mussels that they cooked in different ways. The service was fast, and attentive.

When going to the grand place you'll probably pass by a street full of restaurants. Although you get tempted keep your eyes on the prize. Came to the famous leon and prices are fair. Try their beer with a plate of seafood and you'll get a glimpse of heaven. Service could be better and they try to trick you into... More

This is my second time at this restaurant. Great food and selection. I wasn't feeling like meat, so I had a vegetable platter that was absolutely delicious. Nice menu with a great variety. Highly recommended!

However, this popularity means your meal is quite impersonal; the kitchen churns out great piles of standard dishes and the waiters have little time to chat. The food is ok; just not special.

Chez Leon is a big restaurant, but they have several open rooms connected to each other giving the feeling of a much smaller restaurant. Service is excellent and the food is very good.
