The food is good, i don't remember the name of the plate i order but it was meat and you can have it with rice and/with plantain.

My wife and I went with another couple for Saturday evening dinner, looking forward to the Churrasco steak. The meal was good as was the Sangria but the way too loud nonstop mariachi type musical group including trumpets and singer with microphone spoiled the occasion, room too small for the loud group. Will not return, there are other Nicaraguan restaurants... More

We ate here for the first time with some friends. We had reservations, and one member of the party was about 45 minutes late, but they seated us anyway. They were very patient while we waited for the one member of the party. The food was excellent. The portions were large and the meals included salad, rice with beans, plantains... More

This restaurant has withstood the test of time by selling good portions of delicious Nicaraguan food for over 20 years. Although located in a busy strip mall on one of the busiest streets in Miami this restaurant gives visitors the feel of being transported into a Central American small town square. The restaurant is well known for their "baby" churrasco... More

The Tenderloin Tips with Jalapeño Sauce was really good. Would have been better if it was serve hot vs warm. The whole plate was serve room temperature which is why I rate the service here on the low side. It took too long to order, and we waited a while to get our dinner. Even getting ready to pay for...

The food is great, we ask for their signature dish (Baby Churrasco), the meat was tastier and well seasoned, same for the side dishes. We enjoy the atmosphere, very family oriented, The owner of the restaurant is very friendly and customer service oriented. We love it all.

Having a friend here from Germany, we decided to show her some Nicaraguan food being close to Coral Gables. The service was pretty good, very attentive, water glass was always full. Waiter was funny and pleasant. We ordered the churrasco and the chicken churrasco as well, both were very good, cooked as we ordered. The rice and beans was very... 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!
