We were not planning to eat here and our initial impression was that this is mainly a bar. However while checking the menu we were talked to come in and we decided to try. We were not convinced until the food came and it was overall great: tasty and good display. Interior is quite dark and it was not easy... More

We ordered a variety of foods from Columbia, Venezuela and Peru. Everything was excellent. The food fresh and the service was prompt and steady. the Bases paisa, the panelling suction, the empanadas to the soup and cheese plate were excellent. Priced right with great atmosphere.

This is kind of a dive bar but has excellent tapas, reasonable prices, great drinks and service. We had a tapas special for 2 for $35. and LOVED the corn, beef and chorizo.

Really nice restaurant with South American food. We had the best ceviche ever with passion fruit and cilantro. Also tried a starter with octopus which was really tasty. We ate at the bar and the staff was very attentive and nice. Would highly recommend this place!

We visited Bolivar as part of a food tour and the Ceviche was beyond amazing. Typically it has a bite from the limes and citrus, but they add passion fruit in this ceviche and it creates a completely different and smooth flavor. Wonderful cuts of fish and we had a small empanada as an accompaniment that was awesome. Really cool... More

We decided to come here with another couple for late dinner and drinks. We took a table in the back and we were right off the band area. They had a singer and band and also music. The service was good, not great but good. We ordered a variety of dishes. We ordered the Picanha, Churrasco and several of the... More

Flavorful food, delicious seafood; responsive, friendly servers. Vibrant atmosphere, though we found the music a bit too loud.

Don't mind loud music but we couldn't hear the waitress or each other. Not sure about the freshness of food in USA. you order, get your drinks and 5 mins later you have your food? Then you're asked if you want anything else while still drinking and if you want to think about it you get your bill! Fastest meals... More
