If your looking for good Cuban food and scenic views, head to Bongos. We sat right next to the window overlooking the marina and cruise ships in the distance. You can even see Miami Beach as the restaurant is attached to the American Airlines Arena...More

Good tourist spot to get a Cuban Miami Vive. The food is not as great as you'd hope for but the drinks, dancing and overall atmosphere makes up for the so-so food. Good for groups, and couples alike.

Good cuban food and music, but quite expensive, the service is good < we traveled from Palm beach to celebrate my husband's Birthday and he wanted to eat real cuban food, it was a good experience.

If you enjoy Cuban cooking in a beautiful restaurant, Bongos is the place to go. Since I don't speak Spanish, I appreciated that everyone I met here was bilingual.

I don't know why the Stefans closed this place down, it was good food and at 11:00 pm they will clear the dance floor and you could dance inside or outside on the terrace. Now there is another place open there called 601.

This place has a $20 cover which was really steep! The acts were entertaining. Drinks were terrible. The place is actually small, reminded me of CABO clubs. I was not impressed

We both ordered a pork dish here and could have easily split one meal. It was delicious but I probably ate only a fourth of what I was given. I wanted to save room for the flan, which was excellent. We also had their Cuban...More

Great food and fabulous atmosphere. Dined with a large group and our service didn't suffer because of the size of the table. If you don't like to wait, dine early because it's popular and with the Heat venue next door, it fills up fast.

there are better places in Miami which serve great Cuban food. This is an ideal place for it's music and nightlife.

All Bongos locations advertise themselves as "kid/family friendly" so the restaurant is open to all ages and the local laws regarding drinking ages will determine if you can be served. I've never been to there after 10pm so... More
