The place is quite small, the ventilation is not ideal and you bring back home the kitchen smell.
Apart from this the food is nice and the atmosphere on Friday evening is nice and friendly.

This is a very small Chilean restaurant with just two people doing everything. The menu was only in French, and although the server tried to help, her English was limited. So we stuck to what we could figure out. The room was pretty plain, with some portraits and momentos on the walls.We started with a margarita and a beer. The margarita was very strong and very plain- no lime or salt., and the only beer available was Jupiter. We ordered the nachos (plain chips) with guacamole which was fine, but not outstanding. My husband had the steak, which was a large piece of meat done to order. It was quite tasty and served with a salad and fries. I had the grilled prawns which were huge, but in their shells with their heads still attached. They were very tasty, but again with salad and fries which were rather mediocre.
At this point several large groups of locals had come in, and we could not see how the two people were going to handle these crowds. So we asked for the check, which was 55 € and made our way out.

Such a small restaurant, and my family were the first folks in on a Tuesday evening. Very friendly waitress (owner?). Wife and kids had the empanadas and they were good (great for Europe?), but I've had better in the US. I had anticuchos (a steak shish kebab) for 20 euro, and it was delicious, but the sides could use some "cleaning" up to make this place a 5 star. Restaurant is small and charming, lots of Spanish spoken, and it quickly filled with lots of happy Belgians. Prices were definitely reasonable for Belgium.

I've been here a couple of times and the meat was always great. From outside you could wonder in which kind of place you've been but when you enter the atmosphere changes immediately, the owner she's really kind. Sometimes it happens that there are some pleople singing and playing the guitar to create more and more atmosphere.
Since the place it's really small i'll suggest to book before going.

It is a restaurant with a North American cuisine. From outside you do not trust it for good food. But this is absolutely wrong. I went with my wife after we looked a trip advisor. Limited variety of choices from menu but we tasted two very nice courses. The food was really delicious, good cooking. The owners were very friendly, very good service. A nice gentleman was playing a guitar and we really enjoyed it. He plays also Greek songs and he was very very nice. We paid 60 Euro the two courses and a small bottle of wine. I recommend this place to everybody. For sure we will visit it again.
