Had heard lots about this place and looked forward to our first visit. Most of the foods were good but some of the meats were charred. Pineapple was excellent, and salad bar was ok. Will definitely be returning

Fantastic atmosphere and great array of quality meats. I especially loved the fried cheese and grilled pineapple. I went on a slower Monday night, but I’d be curious to take in the experience on a busy night.

I used to go to this restaurant very often about 5 years ago. Food was tastier and salad bar had more to choose from. About half of what they brought us was burnt and the meats were cheaper cuts than what they used to be....More

We tried this place because we didn’t get a seat at the other Brazilian restaurant; and it was the best of luck! The barbecue selection was huge! The staff are very friendly too! Pure love for this place!

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!
