We went here because of Tripadvisors reviews and we were not disappointed. Beautiful food lovingly prepared by the amazing woman owner. On the night we were there she was maitre'd chef waiter and bartender all done with style and flair in the small dining room. Don't miss this if you come to Vina Del Mar

We happened on this restaurant purely by chance. The outside is very ordinary but once in & through into the back it opens out into a lovely cosy room. In addition, how delighted were we that they served that such high quality cuisine - it was just like being in Belgium - but with that French twist. Between us we... More

This little restaurant resembles a true french bistrot, nothing spectacular from the outside but clean and carefully decorated, with an unique atmosphere, french music and most important of all, great food and wine selection. For starters we had salmon tartare, fresh fish, firm meat, wonderful color everything thickened with a chives, ginger, secret sauce and a home made flavored salt.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The owner and chef was friendly and attentive and the restaurant was very authentic overall. We ended up ordering three mains between us because we were so curious. The escargots were delicious as was the beef, and we'd definitely recommend the creme brule! Excelente servicio, si no hay mucha gente, es como estar en... More

Had I not seen the recommendation on trip advisor I might have missed going to this restaurant. It's very unassuming from the outside but inside is a very small and charming restaurant. I had lunch there with my son and everything was fantastic. We had the escargots, french onion soup magret de canard and a fish dish (which I think... More

This was easily the best meal we had in Viña del Mar, far surpassing any of the others higher up on the list on tripadvisor. The French Onion Soup and Escargot were perfect examples of classic French dishes. The Confit of Duck was superb, served with black potatoes and beetroot. Both the beef and pork were top notch. Very homely,... More

After cycling Latin America for five months the idea of a Belgian restaurant seemed very attractive. Unfortunately, the first night the place was completely packed, so we made a reservation for the day after. We didn't regret it. The food was just like home, only miles away from home. Some video's with pictures and scenes from Antwerp, Brughe, Ghent &... More

This dinner was not what I expected as my family and I walked through the doors of an unassuming and quiet looking restaurant in the heart of Vina Del Mar. We were greated by a very nice man who introduced us to his mother (the chef of the restaurant). They had been running the restaurant for 16 years together! The... More
