Great food and fabulous atmosphere. Dined with a large group and our service didn't suffer because of the size of the table. If you don't like to wait, dine early because it's popular and with the Heat venue next door, it fills up fast.

I have never eaten here. I have only been here to celebrate a few times with friends. The music was great for those who like Latin music. If you like to dance salsa, bachata, merengue, and mainstream reggae. The outside was playing different music - English. I enjoyed myself, however, the drinks were typical weak club drinks.

Food was decent. Nothing extra special. It came with a price tag. Unsure if I would visit again due to cost vs. food quality. We had a great time and service was attentive.

Very bland flavorless food. Was very disappointed. The atmosphere and decoration made you think you were going to eat a great meal, only to disappoint

Came here before a Heat game. It was good food and fast service. I enjoyed the meal along with a terrific margarita. Keep up the great work!

I have been here many times for Corporate functions because of their upstairs, open-air area is great. If you are looking for a place to have a cocktail and listen to live music this would be place to go. They food is okay, service is average and the price point to me is high. But if you are at the...

My husband and I are return customers to Bongos. This is one of the few places in Downtown Disney that we never have to wait on line for, and we always manage to get a table upstairs on the covered patio, away from the foot traffic. This is not a family "gimmicky" restaurant like Rainforest or T-Rex, so that's likely... More

When you order your food and you get it about the same time as your drink it makes you wonder when it was made and how whether it was just reheated. I am no expert on Cuban food but from my little experience the food has a little taste to it. To me this meal was just reheated. No other... More

I came to Bongo's with a friend on a Friday night before my cruise, looking to experience a little Miami nightlife and have some fun. My entry was $15, his was $20, and that included 1 drink. There was a live band and salsa dancing. The overall vibe and atmosphere the night I went was just ok. Maybe it was... More
