Being a bit of a moule specialist (many years of eating them, including 4 years running a restaurant that sold 200kg a week), I first stumbled upon Leon when I was in Paris and saw a rammed restaurant with pictures of Manneke Pis everywhere. Long story short – multiple moule pots and beers later, I promised myself to try the London one when it eventually opened. And yesterday I finally managed, with the much better half.
The food is great, really fresh and tasty. Service was efficient, smiley and pretty good overall. Atmosphere was really cool (60's Belgian place thing) but could have done with some more customers for that noise thing.
Value is definitely there. Two good doses of mussels, bunch of fries, water, couple of coffees and a decent bottle of white was under £60.
My new moule place, since the Belgo factory just doesnt do it for me anymore.
