Perfect fine dining experience from cocktails to dessert. Very glad to see a return to classic French bistro menu, with a few inspired twists. Great wine cellar, wonderful service and atmosphere.
A wonderful atmosphere and excellent service (our waitress was on point!) The setting is perfect for a romantic dinner with low lighting and intimate booths available. Heavy cutlery, linen napkins, etc. but not so formal that you'd feel out of place with smart jeans and no jacket. Bolero are going for a high end bistro vibe. So, to the food. We love French food and this is French influenced so we can forgive the odd missing accents on the menu (just get a marker pen to sort those out). The starters were very good. We had the steak tartare and chilli shrimp. Both delicious. Again, the cremè brûlée was on point. Everything was beautifully presented, however the mains let the show down. The quality of the ingredients was evident but everything was underseasoned - and with no on-table seasoning it should be. The filet steak didn't appear to be seasoned and, although cooked to perfection, the charred exterior tasted acrid. The beef hotpot again, should have burst with flavour, the mash potato though creamy and buttery was bland, and the peppercorm sauce appeared to have no flavour at all (not even pepper). Pop down to Bermuda Bistro for a peppercorn sauce that will knock your socks off. Overall, some of the food was a 5 and some a a plain average 3. For an expensive meal, it should have been top notch and if they can put more flavour into the dishes then Bolero will become a firm favourite.
Arguably the best French food in Bermuda. Nice atmosphere with a very friendly staff. Very good drinks and food. There's a few tables available on the outside terrace overlooking Front Street if the weather cooperates but the inside dining is equally as nice. Overall a very good experience and I'd recommend giving it a try.
Bolero Bistro is a fabulous French bistro on Front Street in Hamilton. The food is creative and delicious. I enjoyed the steak on a baguette with blue cheese - it was prepared perfectly and the very flavourful. My husband had the chicken which was juicy and tender. And we shared the crème brûlée for dessert, which was spot on. The server was attentive and helpful - recommending a red wine and other drinks. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate. This restaurant is a gem. Highly recommend!
Can I just say that we absolutely LOVED Bolero and Jay & Haley were absolutely amazing at what they do. They were running the whole place by themselves and took our party of 8 extremely last minute with a rush at the same time. Our service was absolutely out of this world and they made the very first day of our trip fantastic. Not only that, but the food was amazing. Totally unlike anything else on the island you can find for dinner so I really recommend coming at least once. This will now be a yearly stop for us and thank you again for giving us such an amazing night!
