Very nice tapas and pasta

scared by the throngs of tourists hoovering down rather unimaginative German fare further to the main sport at the foot of the dome, we escaped to Bolero. We had an assortment of tapas first and here can recommend the pancakes filled with Bärlauch, potatoes with tomatoes and the meatballs. Actually... read more

While walking through Bamberg after dark (in a seemingly empty city), trying to find a place to eat, we stumbled upon this restaurant! It was during the weekend, so we expected a crowd, but this was not so. The interior was warm and inviting for an intimate dinner. If you have trouble reading a menu in German, don't be afraid...

Head over to Bolero's on Monday for the best 2.50 EURO tapas I've ever had! If you can made a reservation do so because the place is packed, and if you rock up before 7.30pm it's also $5.00 cocktails. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere!

Foods were tasty and I liked the the atmosphere. But the sevice was poor. Waiters weren't friendly at all. We had to wait for almost an hour after we ordered. It was obvious that they forgot out food but we didn't even get a sorry. I will never go there again.

We decided to try Spanish cuisine after a week of travelling in Bavaria and eating the hearty Bavarian type of meals. The atmosphere inside the restaurant and in the courtyard was lovely. But the tapas was a real disappointment. I don't believe the chef is too skilled at making tapas and the selection is also miserable. Given the fact you... More

If you go here and you don't try the potatoes bravos,you are truly missing out on life. These things will change you. The aren't really spicy, but the flavor is perfect, I wish the price was lower so I could eat more! Oh and the drinks from the bar are very strong, so beware. Two margaritas and I was done.

Fantastic spot for drinks and food. Some of the best steak I have EVER had. The filet mignion is a must have. If you are disappointed go eat a salad on McDonalds and don't waste your time with a false review. Service is also fantastic. If you don't believe me just ask to be waited by Mario. The man is...
