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...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!
