“Delicious food, great service!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had an early dinner (~5pm) on the sunny sidewalk seats. Our server greeted us with the happy hour selection - all drinks half price from 4pm-8pm daily! After ordering a glass of wine each, our server excitedly told us about all of her favorites and she was soooo right! We started with the corn cob appetizer - delicious and an opportunity to taste the different sauces offered for dipping. Next we each ordered an entree recommended by our server. Beef Lomo Saltado and Churrasco....both AMAZING! Sooooooo delicious - not a single complaint! We topped off our meal by sharing a traditional Columbian dessert (cannot recall name).

I would suggest going earlier in the evening - we received fantastic, individual service - may not have been this way if we had been during a busier time of evening.

“Part of the food tour”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

OMG how fantastic is the food here?! Visited as part of the culinary tour and had THE most amazing food. Empanadas, plantain, so many other things which were delicious. Wish I lived nearer! This place has inspired me to investigate new recipes to try to recreate some of these amazing flavours at home. Go. You won't be disappointed!

“Cute & Casual”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I found this place on Yelp. I was looking for a Latin restaurant which wouldn't bust my budget for a birthday celebration and didn't want a very fancy nor super casual place. We had made a reservation so were seated right away. The hosts were super friendly. Despite being so busy they took time out to chat with you & make you feel comfortable. The menu was a variety of Latin American dishes from Peru, Colombia, Argentina & a few other places. We ordered mostly Colombian dishes & a Peruvian fish. The portions weren't overwhelming nor were they skimpy that left you hungry.The meals overall were outstanding, however the drink's, mostly Sangria's we ordered were weak & small. They had a live singer. I don't remember who she was but she was pretty good, she sang mostly Latin classics. Towards the end of our meal she sang happy birthday to the birthday boy. Next time I go to South Beach I will definitely stop by for another memorable meal.

“Lucky Find!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

While walking around in SOBE, my husband and I came across Bolivar and decided to give it a try. How lucky for us! From the very tasty sample appetizer provided while we waited for our delicious meal, to the choices of desserts and coffee, this restaurant was a winner all around. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic, South American food.

“Real Latin food in SoBe”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Very tasty selection of Latin foods! Loved the "patacones", arepas, ceviche and more! The service was warm, helpful. The ambiance inside is what you will feel in a real Latin place.
