Decent enough to go back

Not blown away by this restaurant, but by no means disappointed. I'll jump on board with several others and say the grilled pineapple was outstanding. I was really looking forward to the garlic bread, and after not getting it, thought maybe it was no longer served, but it finally made an appearance... read more

This was the second time my husband and I had the full 'bring all kinds of skewers of meat to your table' experience. It's fun and tasty to try the variety presented. My favourite was the pork and the pineapple. My husband enjoyed the steak. The buffet has salads and sides, veggies and olives. It is pricey, about $43 per... More

I have been coming here for the last few years. The food has always been good and service always impeccable. The place has become overpriced over the last few years though. So unless you can eat a whole pile of delicious and amazing animal's carcasses, I recommend going to the competition a few minutes away. I would still recommend this... More

This place is quite an interesting experience. Servers come to your table with a variety of meats for you to try on sword like things. There is a lot of variety so be sure to go hungry! There is also a buffet for your salad and starch items (loved the coconut rice!). It is a bit expensive, but worth the... More

We had been here more than 10 years ago and decided to go again for our anniversary. Ordered the full experience and although the food was okay, I can't say I feel like we truly got our money's worth. The ribs were so dry I couldn't even eat them, and the chicken was also dry. I was disappointed in the... More

Went there for our anniversary dinner. Went "Full Rodizio"....which is their salad/hot dish bar plus the rotisserie meat. There are 5 kinds of beef, two pork, lamb, sausage, chicken wings, bacon wrapped chicken and caramelized pineapple. The salad part of the salad bar was average in selections....reduced greatly from when I was there about 10 years ago. The hot dishes... More

Had brunch May 3rd. at Bolero. Reservation for 11:30 AM. All breakfast items that I had were cold and most were dried out. Restaurant is upstairs at Smuggler's. Very dark. Perhaps dinner would be good here but brunch was a total waste of money.

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.
