I eat in Leon De Bruxelles almost every time I am in Paris. I like the food they serve. But this time in republique I found place to improve the service: Poor English, which is something bad in this tourist place. But also no patient due to the hard communication. I expect improve in this point. The food is good.

One word - DISGUSTING! "Burgers" between two hash browns instead of buns with grey, tasteless meat patties. Cold, dry mussels with no sauce. €80 for 2 Adults & 2 Kids and we all left feeling sick from what we were able to eat. You are better off spending your money and time at one of the many great Bistros/Brasseries in... More

Had the moules/frites here in the week after Christmas. They were good, reasonably priced and, unlike some other Leons, there was a decent amount of space between tables. It was very busy, people queuing up to get in, and the waiters looked to be run off their feet, but still nice and friendly and very efficient. Wouldn't hesitate to go... More

A casual restaurant serving very decent mussels and great waffles. The staff didn't seem very welcoming at first (we waited for a while to be seated), but our waitress was super attentive although very busy. Open late and great location. What you see is what you get.

Always a great quality place at a reasonable price. Mussels and French fries on a cold winter's night are sure to warm you up. Little gifts for the kids are an added welcome as well as the Kids Menu which is really excellent value. Service needs improvement, however, at this branch at Place de la Republique, they were very busy... More

Located on Place de la République, the restaurant is big and one of the closest from the place. Now we are done with the compliments unfortunately. From where to start: 1/ Service is terrible: Staff are under numbered. They keep running from a table to another, unable to fulfilled their tasks despite their wishes. French fries are at will, but... More

We came to this place for the first time in 1994. And we have returning to this place with every visit to Paris. It brings us great memories. The mussels are perfectly prepared since they are experts at it. We love the Curry and White Wine options with French Fries and beer or wine. Dirts other locations within the city... More

I have been there several times and each time it was a delight. The mussels are very tasty and you can try them in various combinations, all good. You also get fries refill. They also have a good selection of beers, some Belgian ones, too. Beware, though, that at lunch times it is quite crowded.

We showed up for dinner on a Sunday night. Not knowing it was all you can eat mussels, we got in just in time. After that, there was a huge line to get in. I studied in France at La Sorbonne & speak fluent French. It just so happened that all of the tables around us had native French people... More
