I love the ambiance of this restaurant which doesn't compare to their other location in Miami Lakes, I feel like i'm inside a hacienda. The churrasco is made to pefection and the endless Gallopinto accompanied with green and ripe plantain tajadas makes you wanna eat forever 10+!

Had lunch in this rest and it is well located, good parking, and overall excellent facilities. The menu has a lot of variety and the food was great. The service needs attention, waiter was unattentive, was gone most of the time and failed to follow the order resulting in missed items. The restaurant was not busy at the time, which... More

I have been to several steak houses in Miami, and this one was about in the middle of the pack. There was nothing that made it stand out, but there was certainly nothing to complain about either. Prices are decent, food and service were good. We would go back without hesitation if the situation presented itself.

It was a year ago when we visited this restaurant for lunch; the Churrasco was really good and we were happy with the service. So, when Saturday night we thought of Churrasco we decided to go to El Novillo - Bad Choice!!! One of the Churrascos' temperature was ordered as medium and it came "raw" - literally dripping water -... More

For the last 25 years, our latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area.

Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available.

If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal.

We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
