Wanting a somewhat lighter meal we decided to give Bongos a try and we had the most delicious pizza I have ever tasted. Bongos was a regular haunt of our host at Cinnamon Boutique.It was very quiet the evening we went but it was a good traffic watching spot!

Absolutely inlove with this wonderful place! My boyfriend and I eat here every weekend, the pizzas are perfect, it's gotten to the point I can't eat pizza elsewhere because no other pizza can compare! The thin crispy base is packed with toppings which create nothing less than a heavenly explosion of flavor. The staff are wonderful, always friendly and full... More

Great little bar which is well frequented by locals and so, if you're alone, could be a little alienating; but very personal and friendly bar staff. Sunday session well attended and live music.

I found the toppings on my pizza were NOT fresh. It was very disappointing and i will not eat there again.

Oh my.. This is very unfortunate and never happened in the past as we always ensure that all toppings are fresh. I will message you private to find out when and what pizza you had and if you took it up with management. It could/might have been sorted before anything leading to you dissatisfaction and subsequent harsh negative feedback. I... More

Wow what an experience! Pizzas are amazing and the staff are absolutely incredible! Will definately reccomend it. I will make it a point to always pop in to either say hello or have a glass of sangria.

We have been going back to Bongos for about 7 years, to visit our friends, and every time has been memorable, from the delicous seafood pizza, the service from people that make you feel part of the family, and the music when there is a theme night.......wish we could get the same vibe in Pretoria!
