About this restaurant
In 1867, Léon Vanlancker decided to set up business within a stone's throw of the Grand Place to run a five-table restaurant called A la Ville d'Anvers. In 1893, he moved a few meters from there to 18 rue des Bouchers and opened Friture Léon. The years passed and the restaurant expanded slowly but surely.

Real growth started as from 1958, date of the World Expo, when Brussels became the irrefutable capital of mussels and French fries. Since then, the Vanlancker business has not stopped expanding. Nowadays it extends to nine buildings and more than one thousand meals are served every day, always served with a smile. Everyone comes to try out a menu that has hardly changed - one of fourteen recipes for mussels or 120 traditional Belgian dishes.

However, over the last six years King Léon has not rested on his laurels. He has gathered in the troops and set off on campaign.

At the beginning of 1989, the dynamism of the Vanlancker heirs became apparent with the opening a new Léon restaurant in Brussels , inside Brupark, in the shadow of the Atomium. Then in the same year, the business arrived in France with the opening of 51 restaurants in the space of ten years. To know more about Léon International

Additional Léon restaurants have been opened in Belgium .

Behind the scenes, Alexandre and Kevin, Rudy's sons, are preparing to carry on the family tradition. Alexandre has been running a kitchen for many years and Kevin has just entered the Hotel School in Namur .

Nous avons du prendre au moin 3 apéritif avant d'avoir le plat, plus de Spritz un samedi soir 19h, le vin blanc servis avec des glaçons car pas mis au frais... Le plat servi on a eu les frites 10 minutes plus tard et quand on a demandé à nouveau des frites et du pain, on a jamais été servis. Du coup nous sommes parti sans prendre de dessert.
