Food is amazing. Service is unbelievable. I hate the pork belly with steak rice and beans. Truly was cooked to perfection. Had the foreign spice I was looking for. They also throughout the night brought samples. Simply the best hospitality you will receive in miami beach.

We had a drink at Bolivar and decided to book a table the next day for the entire family. Upon our arrival we were met with friendly, happy faces and staff that remembered our names! They made our meal a memorable one. The food was really good and we thoroughly enjoyed the friendly and laid-back latino atmosphere, the live music... More

We returned to this restaurant for lunch after having been here with a food tour. We enjoyed the ceviche so much on the tour that we had to have it again before we left Miami. A great little local place to experience some delicious ceviche.

We came here after searching TA ad Yelp, and were alerted that there was a Groupon available, which was a super bonus! The 4 of us had 2 appies, 4 entrees and 2 desserts, everything was very tasty, especially the pan seared mahi mahi! The crab cake could have been bigger but the entrees were good sized. The Sangria was... More

Short and sweet... Good location in SB and easy to park Staff great and sincere (had 3 infants with us, say no more). Food was a selection of dishes from So America and was easy to compliment one dish with another. We all "shared" each others selection and everything unique and well prepared. (server spent good amount of time explaining... More

We spent the day at South Beach and this place was greatly recommended in TripAdvisor so we decided to give it a go. Place looks small from the outside, not very flashy to catch your attention, but inside is pretty comfy and nice. We had the 7 tapas for $29, good price, good food, enough for us 2! For drinks,...

I'm not going to lie, I was a bit hesitant going into this place. I had one of those wild ceviche cravings you get once a year or so, and I wanted an honest-to-God Peruvian experience. But I was with my dad and I wanted to go someplace he'd feel comfortable, too, so we chose this place based on the... More

My husband and I stopped in Miami two nights ago on our way back from our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We only had one night and we wanted to try something different from what we have I back home. We ordered 7 tapas for $29 and each had a few mojitos. The mojitos were amazing (and strong). For our tapas... More

My wife and I visited Bolivar last night and we were not disappointed. The food was exceptional and very authentic. I would highly recommend anyone in the Miami area to give them a try.
