Fodor's Expert Review Chez Léo

$$$ Lower Town Belgian

More than a century old, this cheerful restaurant is a reliable choice on the restaurant-lined rue des Bouchers—just don't expect to see any locals eating here. Heaped plates of mussels and other Belgian specialties, such as anguilles en vert (eels in an herb sauce) and fish soup, are continually served. The restaurant has expanded over the years into a row of old houses, while its franchises can now be found across Belgium and in France.
