We went on a Friday evening for a couple of drinks and tapas. The atmosphere was great- love music on the stage at the back and the band were fab. We sat at the bar and the team of staff were very friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was very tasty and drinks were nice- although a little expensive! Would... More

They have recently relocate about 5 blocks from where they originally were. The place is small but very nice, dim lights, nice booths, good service. The food is delicious and the portions are good. The ceviche shots were delicious. I would definitely go back

My family is from Chile so I was looking for some Chilean food during our recent stay in Miami. Bolivar was only a short walk from our hotel and my English husband and I stopped in for a meal, and there was a wine tasting in the front and later there were people dancing salsa (which added to the ambience!)....

Good atmosphere, service a bit slow but it was busy. Food a bit heavy for the climate here and my choice which had pork scratchings, strips of steak, rice, black beans and egg was the type of thing you would serve up if you were trying to clear the fridge out of sell-by date food. It was a mistake of... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant while staying in Miami beach and found it to be wonderful - the food was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. The mojitos were great! There was live music playing the night we visited which was lovely too - it created a really good atmosphere without being too loud. The prices... More

We visited Bolivar on a thursday night for my wife's birthday. The food and music lived up to the expectation that we had from all the great reviews we had seen. The Ceviches did not disappoint. We liked the tapas options. All the recommendations from our server were perfect. However, we had read that there were typically big crowds and... More
