Lots of smokers. Pizza is not very good, but okay if you are hungry. Very home style pizza meaning it tastes like something you made yourself. Nice place if you are just coming for a drink in the middle if the day. I won't come here at night. Small place, you mostly have to sit outside. They are upstairs on... More

Hi, Thanks for the review. Our main restaurant is a non-smoking area and it is strange that you sat in the smoking section. We are part of the RAINBOW NATION and love and respect all our customers and our staff. Big Love Bongos More

Bongo's make excellent pizzas and well worth to stop at when passing through the Garden Route. The service was good, the pizza's divine, the beer cold and we thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch. A restaurant that we will definitely visit again.

It claims to have the best pizza on the Garden Route! Well I haven't tried evey one but we certainly had damn fine pizzas here and a good beer to go with them! It was a very quiet night but the stsff and few customers were friendly enough. We enjoyed it and would visit again!

After sitting and having our first drink the waiter decides to tell another couple to join our table. People I don't know from a bar of soap. As the smoking... More

Those are the words that greet you as you come at the top of the stairs and enter the colourful, laid back restaurant that claims the greatest pizza of the Garden Rout can be found there. I must admit, the pizza is really great. Definitely a must on your first visit. If you feel like trying something different, why not... More
