We stopped here for coffee. You get a nice view over the square but it is very noisy with the traffic going by. Most outdoor eating spaces have a glass surround but this one didn't, hence the excessive noise and I chose not to eat outside for this reason too. We ordered 2 coffees with milk and after a long...

Do not expect great cuisine, it is just moules with different dressings, but at least the service is fast.

I walked past this restaurant and was late in the evening, decided to tuck in some foods at 9pm. The restaurant has a fast food type of atmosphere and don't expect a typical French restaurant environment. Served varieties of cooking mussels with recommended beer to pair with. Choice of fish and beef too but limited choice. The quality is comparable... More

I am Belgian and was in the mood for mussels. As this place was a 2 minute walk from the hotel I popped in. Very friendly service. For once I was not hidden away in a corner as a solo diner. The portions are big. The price is OK but I would have liked a bigger selection of Belgian beers... More

Ordered the salmon & Basil Mussels in a Papillotte served with rice. However, when it arrived at table it came with chips. Our french is not that good, but when we mentioned that the menu says rice, we just got a shrug and the waiter left. Never did see any rice. Service was not very good and the 'salmon' mussels...

Amazing world of mussels :) Great staff and food. Beer could be better yet. We have noticed several branches of this place in the city.

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.
