For quiet a few years this has been our restaurant by popular demand. Our group asks me to come back here because of the food, quick and friendly service, and a wide selection of beer and wine. So we do! Go for the assorted tapas, veggie option or a steak. The restaurant is easy to reach, park at the City-Altstadt... More

The ambiance of this Spanish restaurant was warm and inviting and the food was excellent. We ordered "calamare" which came lightly grilled and accompanied with a delicious salad with honey mustard dressing. The server was friendly and the service was excellent. This was a wonderful find in the heart of Bamberg.

When we arrived the place was over crowded. We chosed meat, which was perfectly cooked and tender. But there is nothing that comes with it. You have to pay extra for French fries and for veggies. We got only 2 sliced mushrooms which is ridiculous. Waiting time is too long and it's more an tourist trap than a cosy restaurant

I really love German beer and the local brewery places that are so abundant in Bamberg but to be honest they often lack aspects like charm and service and more specifically real go. Here at Bolero you get a place where things seem to happen and where the service tends to your needs. And the prices are reasonable - we... More

If you are in Bamberg and you want to escape from german food don't go Bolero's! Cooking is very bad! An exemple? A sort of ketchup on chicken roasted on stips! All tapas were full of tomato sauce. The relation between quality and prices is bad. Furthermore, a 0,75 cl bottle of mineral water cost 5,90 Euro! If I'll come... More

We visited this restaurant as an alternative option (we are not fans of Bavarian cuisine) and it was really good deal. I tried gazpacho, which was light and tasty and salad with grilled shrimps, the portion was quite big, vegetable fresh, exactly, like it should look in salad. Service was nice and quick. Overall recommended. And they have a nice... More

I love Bolero! The Atmosphere, the Entertainment, the Location, and the TAPAS! Parking is also available at the Geyersworth Deep Garage, and after a walk over the Bridge and an awesome view of the Rathaus, "I enter the Garden of Bolero." :) Breath-Taking, Romantic, Family Friendly, and all around Good Taste! Oh! If you are using the public Transportation, then... More

scared by the throngs of tourists hoovering down rather unimaginative German fare further to the main sport at the foot of the dome, we escaped to Bolero. We had an assortment of tapas first and here can recommend the pancakes filled with Bärlauch, potatoes with tomatoes and the meatballs. Actually all were very good. And then we had pasta for...

While walking through Bamberg after dark (in a seemingly empty city), trying to find a place to eat, we stumbled upon this restaurant! It was during the weekend, so we expected a crowd, but this was not so. The interior was warm and inviting for an intimate dinner. If you have trouble reading a menu in German, don't be afraid...
