“Friendly service, above average food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our b&b hosts. Steak in Costa Rica isn't like in the States, as you can tell by all of the skinny cows. But this was a nice, affordable, relaxing meal.

“Great food and great service”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Our server Carlos was extremely helpful. The food was excellent. The chef came out to make sure our order was what we wanted. At the end, they let us try their specialty soup and I wish I would have gotten it for an entree. However, the pork we had was also fantastic.

“Nice place to eat and admire the Arenal”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

The right name is El Novillo Steak House and Seafood.

First what I didn't like. Toilets are filthy. Not a nice place to use the restroom.

On the other hand prices are rigth and the food is nicely done. Tasty.

Would come back.
