Just a quick note. We were hungry, on the Champs Élysées, and beer and mussels seemed like a good idea at the time.

Léon de Bruxelles is a chain, with multiple locations throughout France. As I walked in, I noticed that the proportion of English-speaking people in the restaurant far outweighed the French-speakers, which in Paris is never a great sign.

We had the moules marinière, with fries, and a beer (Affligem) to share. Affligem never disappoints (especially if you can find their all-too-rare Tripel), but the mussles underwhelmed and the fries were nothing special. The restaurant was extremely bright, and clean, with fast and efficient service; it also seemed quite family friendly. The meal came to €23.80, which isn’t all that bad for enough beer, mussels, and fries for two.

So – it’s a place to stop if you just need food, but don’t expect magical mussels to arrive on your table. Probably a good place to eat if you’ve got a bunch of kids with you.
