Description: 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!

An excellent salad and appetizer bar. I particularly enjoyed the artichoke hearts (a personal favourite), seasoned cauliflower, seasoned mashed potatoes and coconut rice. The beef stew was a nice touch too. We bypassed the pork and pork enhanced selections, but the beef, lamb and chicken ones were great. My favourites were the sirloin coated in parmesan cheese and the one coated with harissa. So many places serve disappointing desserts that look like they've been run over by a ten ton truck. This was not the case with the lime cheescake. The portion was generous, the texture was thick and rich and the burnt sugar on top definitely added some extra pizzazz. The accompanying coffee was nice and strong. This is a good place to come when you want to splurge. It's also a good place to come if you're on a gluten free or low carb diet and want to splurge. Unless you're not on a budget this is a special occasion destination, but you won't feel bad about spending a bit of extra cash to make your mouth feel this happy.

My son recommended this restaurant to me for his birthday. We arrived at around 1700 hours without a reservation, but, the manager graciously found us a table. I have been to this type of restaurant previously in Mexico, so I was prepared for the onslaught of food. The service was excellent and the side salad and food bars had an wide variety available for even the most picky eater. I really enjoyed the pineapple skewer. The menu is a bit pricey, but, well worth your dining dollar. I will definitely return.

If you like meat, this would be the place to go. The atmosphere was good and the self-serve salad bar/ side bar was delicious.

It is Rodizio style where they come to your table with different cuts of meat (beef, chicken, lamb and pork), grilled pineapple and grilled cheese. All meat cuts were excellent choices. This is in addition to the salad bar and the hot items bar (including rice, stew beef and fish). The salad bar was excellent and really delicious salad items. The service was excellent and continuously coming to the table with meat cuts until you say no thanks. We enjoyed the seating arrangement. Parking around the restaurant was ok. This is one of the best places I visited in Calgary with Rodizio Style!
