We walked here for lunch on a beach visit and really liked the atmosphere. Good music playing but it wasn't too loud that we couldn't enjoy our conversation as well. Food and drinks were great and prices were normal. Service was excellent!

This place has a great tropical atmosphere..and I had a great burger..... but... thought some menu items, like fish & chips for $17... were a bit high. I also had a frozen pina colada that was very tasty but had little alcohol...for a drink just over $8 it should have had more kick to it & was disappointed. We went... More

Went to Orlando for the week with my in laws and my husband decided to take me for a beach day. This place was the best dining we did all week! Better than anything in Disney or Orlando. Great drinks. Awesome coconut shrimp appetizer and I got the fish tacos and they were scrumptious. We sat right on the beach....Plenty... More

We were greeted after a few minutes, told to sit anywhere we will be right with you. After 20-25 mins still no service at the table. My friend went to bar to ask a waitress standing there if she could help was told she was way to busy to do anything for us. Finally at our table our waitress came... More

Lovely beach side setting. Typical bar menu. We ordered two wraps (Caesar & club) and both were delicious. One came with fries and one with coleslaw. Probably the best fries I've ever tasted and the coleslaw had a little pineapple which was amazingly tasty. Would recommend.

Visited Bongos Beachside Bistro/Bar on a recent Saturday night. Terrific location, right on the beach and with a great view of the Gulf. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed but also a bit absent minded. There was a very long wait between being greeted, ordering, and receiving our drinks and then our food, so much that we walked over the bar to... More

We were staying at the Grand Plaza so seemed little point eating anywhere else when the reviews are so good. Glad we did eat here, the service was friendly and efficient, we asked to be seated on the beach and it was lovely to sit and watch the sun go down whilst eating and drinking. We didn't feel rushed, it... More
