Went for dinner on Saturday night. We were seated right away. The waiter was very nice and gave us some great suggestions. They had a guitar trio going around the tables taking song requests. We had a great time and the food was delicious at a reasonable price.

I am a regular visitor to this great restaurant. The last time I took one of my employees to celebrate her birthday. Martha, the waitress was superb, excellent as usual. busboys are very attentive, always ready to bring water, they don't charge for the bread, you could ask for more if you want. Fast service, great food.

El Novillo is a great Nicaraguan restaurant. The food is always great. I went for lunch most recently. The steaks are incredible and fresh. Always cooked perfectly, and the waitstaff work really well together as a team. Any steak will not disappoint. My favorite is the Churassco which can be ordered in several sizes. Don't overlook the chicken churassco which... More

It had been at least 10 years since the last time I visited the restaurant. Guess what? Nothing had changed. They still got the best churrasco and great service. If you like churrasco don't waste time eating elsewhere.

Was just here again for lunch after a hiatus. Very efficient service and good deal for lunch! My favorite is the El Novillo Salad (with beef). The meat is excellent and the vegetables are terrific!

So technically this might not be considered the suburbs as it's in the heart of Miami Lakes Town Center, but the point is that it's quite 15 miles or so from Downtown Miami. Lovely welcome, good, friendly service, nice selection of dishes - Personally can't vouch for it's authenticity as a Nicaraguan restaurant but I was invited here by a... More

Description
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!
