Despite good friendly service this didn’t set the drums rolling. We sat outside to avoid the 45 min wait and appreciate we missed the Cuban dancers which may have given it another star. Rating in food alone.., pretty bland and tasteless , even the margueritas...More

The food and entertainment is top notch and worth the trip. I was there on a Friday night when they had live Cuban music and dancers. It was a long day and I was tired so wanted to keep things simple and skip appetizers ,...More

Went to Bongos last night. We haven’t been for ages as last time we weren’t impressed, thought we would give it another go though, wished we hadn’t bothered. Service was okay as was the dancing that they had on, we had a great table at...More

Two families visiting Disney and looking for something fun, different and authentic and last minute, settled on Cuban without reservations. Wow. They got us in at a spectacular outside table for 7. We were not disappointed! Gabriella waited on us and was wonderful- attentive, helpful...More
