This restaurant is famous for its Argentinian beef. The flank steak is very juicy and tender and the sauce bearing the same name as the restaurant is also very good. The frites are nicely done too. Worthwhile for a visit and the price is reasonable too.

You don't have much choices in this resto, just a few suggestions from the board otherwise only 3/4 main courses with meet and 2/3 with fish. Not worth the prices, too expensive for what they give. I don't understand why it's called south american resto. Not coming back again.

Do you like beef? I mean, real beef? Then, if you want a steak, tasty and excellent... Go to Toma Mate. It's an excellent place to eat, with various food, and the must.... At the end of your dinner is the mate. Do you know this beverage? No? Try it!

Argentinean inspired food, but lacks some basics. The place is nice, staff friendly and the food is, but some details missing for tge price we paid. We had a well done steak partly burnt, and the vacio was undercooked. The salads were not fresh a simple vineagrette or even oil and vinegar would have been nice. The fries were also... More

Frequented the place right from the start and still enjoy the entrecote with chimichuri sauce. Espececially with a good argentinian wine. The place is very popular and when crowded somewhat noisy.

Probably the best Argentinian restaurant nearby Brussels I like this place because of the friendly atmosphere and service and of course, because of its real Argentinian beef!

A few days ago we went to Toma Mate, it is really a vey nice place. The service was nice, the steaks we ate were very good, cooked the way we asked. The Argentinian wine we drank was also very good. The cheese croquettes were, maybe, not at the level of the restaurant, they could improve on that. Overall very... More

Located in a small village just outside of Brussels. You can easily park in front of the restaurant in opposite of the church. Reservation is advisable because it’s quite popular, of course it depends also on your timing. Staff is friendly but not all speak English. I can only judge the steak and fish I tried, both were really good.... More

Very nice choice just off the brussels ring in Beersel, with alWays a few good suggestions on the menu next to the classic Argentinan beef. Good value for money. Wine list heavily oriented to Argentina.

Thank Paflem
