Our company

Léon’s story is real and authentic, far from the marketing concepts appearing in town…

Established more than 100 years ago in 189 in Brussels, “Friture Léon” was a small “estaminet” dedicated to mussels and typical Belgian dishes. Quickly, its reputation expended out of the Belgium borders. A century later in 1989, the first “Léon” restaurant opened in Paris, dedicated of course to these famous traditional dishes…

Our restaurants have kept their Belgian spirit; our teams are welcoming everyone in a convivial, authentic and warm atmosphere, just as in Brussels. The company has 78 restaurants in France in which we ensure fresh products and good moments to share..

Discover our new urban restauration concept Léon de B in Paris and Lyon. The same freshness in a new atmosphere!
