“Treated like king and queen”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Bovino's is a hidden gem! A little off the beaten path but well worth your trip. We were staying at the Royal Caribbean resort on the main strip in Cancun and it was an easy bus/taxi ride out to our destination. The salad bar is incredible, multiple delicious salads, shrimp, mussels, excellent paella and the sweetest plantains you have ever tasted... And that is just in the salad bar!
The wait staff is incredible, bringing out multiple skewers of meat at a time (all exceptional!) and being very helpful as my girlfriend and I speak very little Spanish. The meats were all seasoned well and came straight from the fire pits to the table!
After we were both thoroughly stuffed the head waiter came out and asked us how we had heard of the place and about our trip and was very personable. He really made us feel not only as guests in the restaurant but as the most important people to walk through the door! After that the manager came out and talked to us a little about our meal and our stay. Again very nice and really cared about our input and our stay at the restaurant.
He then went above and beyond any of our expectations and he told us to wait inside as they hailed a taxi for us! Which they paid for us to get back to our hotel! Absolutely the best service We had while down in Cancun!
I highly recommend this restaurant as it truly was a magical night for us and I'm sure if you come by the staff will make your stay as memorable as ours was.

“Just Crazy Good”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

This place is a gem. We first visited in early 2011 and we were one of few if any tourists. The staff was super attentive and helped us figure out just what a Brazilian steakhouse is/was. The food is top notch. The experience is fantastic. It's not cheap but nothing good every is. I think it's between 45-50$ per plate but it's all you can eat of great food. Top notch all the way.

Just so you know - You first get access to a gigantic salad/sushi/etc bar and then you use a card that you flip from red to green when you want meat brought to you. Server's bring 20+ different meats and they shave it off a giant skewer? It's a good time too. 8 of us cost about 7000 mxp... which is about $620. This included drinks and a bottle of wine or 2.

“Bovino's is THE BEST!!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We have several Brazilian steakhouses in Kansas City, but none of them can beat the quality of Bovino's! I would have never expected better food in Cancun than in the states!? Hands down, the service, the salad bar, the meat quality/taste/texture/presentation could not be beat! We loved our visit to Bovino's and will go back again! Thank you, Bovino's!!!

Great Brazilian steak house. Lots of choices. Make sure you don't fill up on the enormous salad bar.

“Really great!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I am not normally a fan of this genre but I am a fan of this restaurant. Everything is first class. The gigantic and diverse buffet and the perfect meats carved tableside. It is top shelf, you won't be disappointed.
