If you are a fan of Nicaraguan food, this is one restaurant you must visit. El Novillo is an exceptionally good addition to the plethora of South American eateries emerging in the Miami area. The decor is suggestive of a hacienda with a graceful and inviting look. Appetizers are varied such as the fried cheese, nacatamalitos or ceviche. But definitely save room for an entree. Try the churrasco or a pepper steak in cream sauce. Enjoy the live Marimba music on certain days of the week while you sip on your drinks at the bar.

el deterioro de un buen lugar
En el ano 2000 visiet este esquicito restaurant y que de impresionado pora su calidad. Para mi sopresa y desilucion anoche al regreasrme encontre con un lugar pesimo, la comida mal hecha el servicio mediocre , pero mantinen los $$$ altos , el vino lo sirven en copas bien ordinarias y el colmo mientras cenabamos paso un mesero con por al lado de nuestra mesa con 2 bolsas repleta de basura, para colmo transparentes, que pena que este lugar en el pasado tan excelente haya caido tan bajo, al menos yo no lo recomiendo , ah toda la comida fria , las tajadas quemadas y patidas y el gallo pinto crudo , la carne de mala calidad

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 overcooke

Want a drink and GREAT meal...
This is probably one of my favorite latin restaurants. Their churrasco is amazing! It is different from the Argentinian churrasco but it unreal. Juicy, tender and if you like medium cook they are great about doing it right! The other amazing thing about this place is it has a full bar. They know how to serve a good drink! The staff is really friendly and attentive to all your needs even if you go with a large group of 20.

Nicaraguan cuisine
A Nicaraguan restaurant with nice decorations and good food. They are a bit expensive, like Los Ranchos, but it is worth trying to experience a different type of cooking, if you've never tried it before. The waiters are very attentive. They sometimes have specials Monday - Thursday. The scenery is beautiful because of the view of the bay. Very romantic.

Nicaraguan steakhouse creates an inspired, celebratory dining scene with abundant portions and live music. – The Scene
Forgive the drab, suburban strip-mall exterior and enter a festive Nicaraguan village, complete with a two-story facade and gushing fountain at the center. Live music and an active bar scene turns the eatery into a popular watering hole later in the week. An attentive staff is always around to fill glasses or pile on slices of crispy, buttery bread.
The Food
Churrasco--juicy, thick and, at its size, jaw-tiring--may be the restaurant's signature steak, but the taconazo tenderloin--folded into the shape of a woman's shoe--is its most distinctive. Sides of sweet, fried plantain
