Featuring Nicaragua's Own Flor De Cana As Our House Rum

Business 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!

El Novillo is No Bueno

My wife and I had some fond memories of going to Novillo's on 40th Street in Miami in the past, but we won't be back after what we've seen what's happened to the place.

We went there a couple of nights ago in need of a good churrasco and that famous Nicaraguan hospitality we knew about - we found neither!

First off, we were seated way in the back by the bathroom, and then, against all reason we were brought four menus in English when we were all speaking Spanish and my relatives clearly don't speak a word of English. (Just like 90% of their staff!)

As for the food, the famous Novillo churrasco was dry and listless, and it became a chore to complete it. They overcooked two of the three servings, all of which were ordered medium rare, and I ended up switching plates with my wife, whose beef was not as ""well-well"" done. The beef was initially brought out by itself, unceremoniously dropped onto the table in front of us like dog bowls: there the three strips lay awhile, with no garnish, no side dishes, only streak marks showing how they slid onto the plates.

When we politely told the waiter that he had brought beef when we had ordered chicken for the fourth person's entree, he questioned my mother-in-law's memory with a kind of passive aggressive remark about how he was ""almost certain"" that she had ordered the beef! Who do you think is more likely to remember what was ordered, the person who ordered the food, or the waiter who took the order without writing it down?

After declining dessert and waiting entirely too long for the bill, we paid and left, without hearing any customary polite words on the way out. The hostess, a pretty young lady with a bored frown who looked like she was sitting in detention, didn?t even utter the obligatory pleasantries like ""We hope you liked it!"", ""How was it?"" or ""We hope you come back"". Instead, she continued cleaning her ear with her little finger while snapping out an almost sarcastic ""Thanks!""
