“Better than ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I have been visiting the area a couple times a year and Bongo's is home base for me. The new upper deck and Baby Bongo's bar is just great. Always trying to make things better and always do! Outstanding staff, friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and drinks for every palate. Nice beer selection and tons of specialty drinks. You can't beat this place, free music daily, great food, really good people. What more do you need?

“Bongos Beachside Bistro was Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is the 2nd yr in a row we have returned to St. Pete Beach for our vacation. We stay at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Hotel & Resort. It is a great place w/an awesome view. Bongo's was fantastic. The atmosphere is casual and very laid back & very romantic, located right on the white sandy beach. We ordered the spinach dip as an appetizer. It actually was the best Spinach Dip I have ever tasted! My fiance ordered the coconut crusted mahi and it was amazing!! Also we ordered the mango scallops which were pretty good as well. Live music played as we ate our dinner beachside by candlelight, will def go back again b4 we leave!!!

“Great Food on The Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Amazing combination....Great Food......Great Scenery!

Sitting right on the beach....starring into the Gulf....what could be better............

Their sandwiches are so delicious......let me name a few.....the Cuban Sandwich......Barbecue Shredded Pork and the Spicy Haddock Wrap......all so tasty......and may I recommend getting their homemade red skinned potato salad....a must!

and you have to order their signature dish.....two gulf shrimps, a skewer of mango scallops placed on a bed of fish dip with a side of toasted flatbread in a champagne glass....so different and reasonably priced for such a unique dish!
