This is a great place to stop in for a cocktail - they make decent cocktails and have a reasonably comprehensive cocktail menu. They also serve pizza. Only our children ate here, but the pizzas looked really good. As this is a bar, children are only allowed in the early evening and during the day.

The only expectation one has of a pizza joint is that it serves good pizza. The pizza we got from Bongos was like eating cardboard with cheese. We called the manager to point out that there was no tomato Base whatsoever. I peeled back the cheese revealing only white crust. With his pen he pointed out a spot of something... More

Hi, I'm very sorry that our pizza did not meet your expectations. So far everyone left us this season happy and with "the best pizza they ever had". We do make thin, crispy base pizzas and every pizza is started with our tomato base. Unfortunately you may have had a section that was not spread properly. Love Bongos More

We recently visited Bongos for dinner. The pizzas were great but the service could have been better! At least there was an available table in very busy Wilderness :)

We arrived with a group of 8 people on a very busy night but we called ahead and got seating outside on the patio which was a bit noisy since it's right next to the road, but we still had a good time. The prices are affordable and although we had to wait a while to get all our pizzas,... More

Great bar, cool location. Actually one of the deciding factors for why I ended up in Wilderness. You just need a place like this to hang out with old friends, and meet new friends. Good internett service, so no problem getting an updated on net or email.

Look and feel of rusta restaurant. Awesome pizza however more toppings would be suggested especially for the price you ask.

Whenever we pop through to wilderness we always come here for a quick drink. The vibe is really relaxed so one is made to fee relaxed and welcomed. The owner is very friendly and next time we will try their pizzas!

We were looking for a nice pizza place serving good pizzas. We were a bit disappointed. Not the best pizza we have ever eaten. The venue is cosy and the service was not too bad.
