I had wanted to try this place since first landing in Calgary almost a decade ago, and tonight my wife decided to take me for my birthday. BRING YOUR APPETITE. We opted for the full Rodizio(they'll explain the different dining options) This place was a carnivore's paradise, and I am not exaggerating when I say that everything brought to the... More

For special occasions, this is a favorite go-to. All-you-can-eat brazilian kebabs brought to your table, with meat, meat, and more meat. (Although the pineapple skewers are amazingly good too). Service has always been excellent, and the food quality is invariably good. Some dishes may be more to your taste than others. price is a bit high for a regular experience.

If you are a carnivore, then this is the very best restaurant for you. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, ribs are all slow roasted on kebabs on an open flame grill. The gaucho/waiters come around to your table with the kebabs and slice off a portion as long as your table indicator is turned green side up. You can go all... More

There are about 12 different kinds of meat to try plus grilled pineapple! Its doable so you can eat all 12 and have seconds if... More

Anyone who has ever been here, knows how amazing it is. Anyone who hasn't, you truly need to go. The drinks, the different meats and the grilled pineapple. You will definitely have meat sweats so ladies wear a dress. The chefs are amazing, the staff is beyond incredible. I've had three birthdays and each one keeps upping the precious. You... More

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!
