The place has been around for ages.Decent food for mediocre prices. Not my top recommendation for food in Brussels but definitely not for avoiding if yoz are stuck in central Brussels.

We were only in Brussels for a few days, but this was our best meal. We had a 1 yr old with us and the wait staff was very accommodating. I'd go back again if in the area.

You may have to line up for about 15-30 mins at peak time to get a table, but it is well worth the wait. Lucky to get an outside table. The mussels from Brussels were a winner for dinner! Don't leave Brussels without trying them

One of our tour guides recommended Chez Leon for late night mussels. I think they were just average. Had mussels three times and La Maree was much better.

Had a chance to eat there for lunch and was surprised by the variety of dishes. Food was good and great atmosphere. Some of the city maps have a 10% off coupon.

Great moules, washed down with a crisp French Muscadet. Friendly staff (especially when spoken to in French). Have been here many times and never been disappointed. Highly recommended.
