I ate here one evening and i thought that the food was very good. I had Pernil Cocido, a piece of pork leg. The portion was quite big and it was well prepared. Before the diner i had pisco sour and i must say it was quite good, something in between Chilean and Peruvian pisco sour. The owner was very kind and there was a live music that evening, a guy with guitar playing French, Spanish, South American, Mexican music. I must say he was very entertaining and gave it a bit twist to this place. I would recommend this place.

Very nice food, good service, sweet place, happy music. Absolutely one of our favorites!!!p.s. to note we were there with a ten days baby and they did their best to accommodate the stroller and the baby.

We came here after reading the reviews. The restaurant was packed and we were sat on the same table as a random couple which wasn't ideal. However, the steak was fantastic and cooked to perfection. It was a bit crazy and language barrier was a bit if an issue but I recommend the food!

Good quality food and wine at reasonable prices (loved the steak and the Chilean cake with dulce de leche). The waiters welcomes you as a friend and the guitar player signs songs that talk about love and revolution. The decoration is simple, but transports you somewhere far away from rainy Brussels.

Chilean cuisine is not that sophisticated but very varied and with quality ingredients (fish, seafood, meat...), we lived 10 years in Chile, hence the small menu missing classics such as the classic cazuela or chupe, and the 'pollution' of cuisine from other countries (Peru, Mexico) is a little disappointing. Add to that the 'heavy' presence of Allende and the rest of the Chilean leftist pantheon everywhere on the walls. At least you feel back in the seventies.
Still, we love to come back to Araucana, you are greeted as a friend by Adela and her daughter, the atmosphere is always friendly and merry and the food if not varied is still very good and honest value for money. And not to forget, the empanadas, quite tricky to prepare, really taste as in Santiago. The singer/guitarist is not Chilean but still plays great and is a pleasure to listen to.
I understand some things cannot be changed (menu, Allende) but still one easy improvement would be a good extractor hood. I love the smell of Chilean cuisine but not on my suit.
