“Fun change from other local fare.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

The ambience is very nice. The "other" (not the meat brought around on skewers) buffet was filled with interesting and delicious items - great cheeses, salads, seafoods, quail eggs, salads, fruits - even dragon fruit. That alone may be worth the price. The meats were generally very good, but they were loaded with marinades and dressings, which hid the taste of the meat to me. I prefer places with a more natural meat. A few were better (ie, less marinade/sauce), such as what we call prime rib. I had to ask about 7 times for some lamb, and it finally arrived when everyone was finished eating - awkward. The filet mignon was tiny and over marinated, thus dry and uninteresting. They served the "hump of the bull," which was probably more interesting in the name than taste. The cost with wine and dessert was about $60 per person. The service was good.

“If your hungry -go”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Amazing food for half the cost at home or on hotel zone. I was feeding three hungry boys so this was the highlight of the trip. Thry have every kind of meat known to man. But don't fill up too fast because they save the good stuff for later. They bring the papitas last and it is the best cut of beef you will ever have. The salad bars are amazing, shrimp, sushi, Italian meats and cheeses, salads, fruit, mussels, lobster claws, paella, everything! Well worth the 500 pesos a person. I do think cost went up. I believe it used to $30 a person -now it's $40. But still worth it.

“So many choices!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Excellent service. Not crowded. The hot and cold buffet had so many wonderful choices from paella, feijoada, mussels in wine sauce, spanish tortilla, jamon iberico, cheeses, fruit, salads, clams, Deviled eggs, to sushi rolls! Then came the different meat choices - all cooked very well. Dessert cart also fabulous, but costs extra. The atmosphere is beautiful. Separate room divided by sliding glass doors for smokers. Valet parking. Overall very good service and a lovely dinner (expensive, $130 dollars before tip for two people, six mixed drinks).

“Don't Miss Bovinos Even if you are a Vegetarian!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is an Brazilian restaurant specializing is many different cuts of meat and I am a vegetarian. Bovinos serves their meats on swords. Patrons have a 2 colored coaster that they turn to indicate if they want meat or if they are resting. They serve beef, pork, lamb and chicken. Bovinos has an extraordinary salad bar serving every kind so salad imaginable and every type of seafood you can think of, hence vegetarians will love Bovinos. There is an extensive wine list and the service is impeccable. It is 400 pesos per person for the salad bar and meat and it is 250 pesos for just the salad bar. If you want dessert it costs extra. When we are in Cancun we visit Bovinos at every opportunity. Enjoy!
