Amid a relaxed environment, El Novillo Alegre offers the best in domestic and Argentine cuts of meat, grilled to perfection as only the Argentines can do. Their mature, tender cuts are known for their high quality, extreme tenderness and extraordinary juiciness.

They offer many traditional Argentine dishes, such as milanesas, empanadas with different fillings, and the traditional caramel-like dessert, dulce de leche.

The friendliness of the staff and owners stands out. Every detail is taken care of, making your stay and exercise in great service and geniality.

You can visit any of the three Novillo Alegre branches, which are located in Escazú, Santa Ana and Curridabat. Each maintains the same standards of quality and a great ambiance.

Each restaurant has a large wine list, with Argentine specialties standing out. El Novillo Alegre Escazú also has La Vinería, which is a wine shop that offers customers around 100 labels of wines at supermarket prices, so you and your table companions can enjoy wine with your meal, or take it home.

Each restaurant can host corporate events and any type of celebration, as well as catering service. El Novillo Alegre also has the capacity to receive groups of tourists, with an international-caliber menu.

Don’t miss the cuadril (sirloin bottom), the homemade sausage (made with an old Argentine recipe), the grilled vegetables and the delicious apple pie.
