Since 1984

El Novillo is proud to be serving fine Nicaraguan dishes for more than 30 years!

Over two decades ago a group of Nicaraguan friends living in Miami decided to create a restaurant that would feature the finest Nicaraguan dishes in an ambiance representative of its Spanish colonial architecture. It would be a place where people would be exposed to the Nicaraguan traditions of fine cuisine, personalized service and festive entertainment. In 1985 El Novillo Restaurant came to fruition and thus a Nicaraguan home was transformed into the premier Latin steakhouse.

Adhering to true Nicaraguan philosophy we seek only to offer the very best to our customers. The finest cut of beef has always been the tenderloin, which is precisely what is served to satisfy our guest´s appetites. Our now famed churrasco steak is a very lean tenderloin, from grass fed cattle, cut and prepared in a special Nicaraguan manner. Our menu is rich like our heritage, also offering seafood, poultry, and other meats, each prepared in unique local styles. The marinades, sauces and spices are all genuine Central American creations. Since Nicaraguans are famous for their hospitality, the same care taken in our food is transferred to our surroundings, service, and entertainment.

Our restaurants have been prominently featured in many local, national, and international newspapers and magazines. We hope that your experience with us will turn you not just into in a client but also a friend.
