There are about 12 different kinds of meat to try plus grilled pineapple! Its doable so you can eat all 12 and have seconds if... More

Love the different meats and ways they are prepared, I prefer the beef, lamb and pork. I really like the Parmesan cooked meats ! The chicken is good too but this is... More

Anyone who has ever been here, knows how amazing it is. Anyone who hasn't, you truly need to go. The drinks, the different meats and the grilled pineapple. You will definitely have meat sweats so ladies wear a dress. The chefs are amazing, the staff is beyond incredible. I've had three birthdays and each one keeps upping the precious. You... More

Went first time for our anniversary (kids came along) after raves from friends. First ones in when it opened at 5pm. We started with the buffet with lots of salads, rice, potato, stew and so on. Then the skewers started coming, sometimes on both sides of the table: Bacon wrapped sirloin, cheese, pineapple, chicken wings, ribs and lots of other... More

It was our 6th anniversary and we decided to do something different. We had heard good things about this place so we made reservations. The sides bar was a bit disappointing as there was very little fresh food and more stews and side dishes but I guess I was more expecting a salad bar. The meat was tasty as I... More

Located close to the corner of Glenmore and Macleod we are Calgary's first Brazilian BBQ style restaurant. At Bolero the customer is in charge of the timing on our wide selection of churrasco(skewers) to be brought to your table by our Gaucho Chefs. Green means go and Red means stop. A perfect setting for any festive occasion as we offer a wide range of different, cocktails, wine, and beer. Dining with friends and family was meant to be fun, the Brazilian way!
