Located close to the corner of Glenmore and Macleod we are Calgary's first Brazilian BBQ style restaurant. At Bolero the customer is in charge of the timing on our wide selection of churrasco(skewers) to be brought to your table by our Gaucho Chefs. Green means go and Red means stop. A perfect setting for any festive occasion as we offer a wide range of different, cocktails, wine, and beer. Dining with friends and family was meant to be fun, the Brazilian way!

Good food, good atmosphere, good experience.

Headed here at the request of my son, who wanted to go for his 18th birthday meal. Had experienced Brazilian meals at all-inclusives, but never 'the real thing'. Excellent selection of meats, some were better than others. Really enjoyed the parmesan garlic beef, the lamb loin, the bacon wrapped... read more

The service was awesome ! We were not happy with the table we got and the servers where way more than happy to assist us, the waiter said "just grab your plates" he had new drink and the table set up for us, with a smile on the face. The food was amazing, they had sea food, so fresh I... More

A group of us went out for a friends Birthday to Bolero and it was fantastic!!! It's definitely not a place To go if you want to get in, eat, and leave. It was more of an evening out and you get to sit and enjoy yourself. The food is wonderful I can't wait to return.

We went to Bolero tonight and it was was truly awful. Meat was raw, not rare but raw. Beef, lamb and bacon were just not cooked. Our plate of discarded fat and raw meat had more on it than we ate. Very expensive for low quality, poorly cooked meat. We will never go back.

This entire event was outstanding! Although they started a little late (they had to prepour all the the wine), they apologized and thanked us profusely for attending. We were seated with another couple (we didn't know) but thoroughly enjoyed their company. The manager of Bolero attended to each table, and other managers of the Smugglers group were in attendance and... More

We had a very enjoyable evening celebrating a birthday. Excellent side dishes and a wide selection of barbecued meats which arrived at the table without interruption. A veritable meat eaters, paradise, plentiful and tasty. Arrive hungry and you wont be disappointed. The servers made us feel comfortable and welcomed even on a busy evening. Ask for a booth seat at... More

To my mind, it's more like a Bonanza or Golden Corral, but a lot more expensive. Sure, they bring a lot of meat around, but it's not really delicious meat; it's just a lot of meat. I found the rib eye the most flavoursome. The lamb shoulder is tough and stringy, but it is when I grill it myself too.... More
