We just happened to run across this place while walking around and so glad that we did. The atmosphere is great. The sangria is delicious especially on a humid evening. The Eche ceviche is incredible as are the patacones. We went with the tapas platter which was a great way to try a little bit of everything. Would recommend skipping... More

We are a family of four with two teenage kids. Saw the restaurant on Tripadvisor. It was really good food, great service and reasonable prices. Can definately recommend this restaurant.

Loved the food. Probably the best meal we had in Miami. Staff were very friendly and pleasant. Cute little sitting area on the sidewalk and very cool interior.

Tempted to wander in for an overpriced, low quality meal on South Beach? In town with a family and so intimidated by the scene that you cant make it past TGI Fridays? Don't miss the chance for a wonderful South American meal at Bolivar. The Colombian Salmon manuelita was the best salmon dish I have ever had. The "mixed vegetables"... More

Stumbled across this place while visiting Miami, and thought we'd give it a try. I don't even know where to start. The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive. We ordered empanadas and chicken patacones for appetizer (the patacones were incredible!!) and they brought us "on the house" appetizers as well. We tried the pabellon sifrino, lomo saltado and churrasco for... More

The food was okay. The empanadas were cold, but the steak was good. The machine soda was $4.00- that is too expensive if it was original it would be okay. They have to charge a little bit more main courses and make the dish more representable so they could represent the Bolivian cuisine better.
