A Hidden Gem.

This is an awesome restaurant. The service & atmosphere are fantastic. It is kind of hidden behind the Grand Plaza Hotel and it is on the beach. The night we were there a storm was rolling in. The Staff hung in with us and we got the meal in. It's a great place to view the sunset. Park in the... read more

Great beach side atmosphere for this bar and grill attached to the Grand Plaza Hotel. Live music daily and you might catch a wedding on the weekend. The food is fairly average though so I would recommend having drinks here and wandering on to some of the many great restaurants for dinner plans.

Despite having to navigate the current construction, which was not that difficult, we really enjoyed our lunch at Bongos. The food was excellent and service wonderful! The setting along the beach is great! We'll be back!

The salads are very good. Any Halibut dish will be good. The frozen drinks should be sampled, why not, you are on vacation....

We just moved to St. Pete in December and we keep coming back here for the great fish tacos, sunset views, and live music. Our friends and visitors have really enjoyed the beach vibe here. They do not have very much for vegetarians on the menu , but the manager was very accommodating and had the chef make veggie tacos... More

I have been going to Bongos for the past 5 years and it is still my favorite spot on Saint Pete Beach. The scenery, the atmosphere, the drinks, the staff, and the good times... there is never a bad moment here. The only complaint I would have is that it sometimes gets too crowded now and you'll have to wait... More
