Four of us had just finished a grueling training/exam week and were looking for something different. Bongos menu had something for each of us and was very unique. The waiter was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The regular mojito was one of the best I've had. The food received mixed reviews. The fried pulled pork was chewy and I left much of it on the plate. The others had tilapia and the steak and they liked their selections. I would go again, but try something different.

Title says it all - just watch out for the squirrels. They WILL run up on the table and beg for food if you let them.

Located at Downtown Disney, Bongo is a lively restaurant with a variety of choices for all tastes. Based on cuban cuisine - the menu is interesting and versatile. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the best mojotos ever, along with some plantanos maduros, frijoles, and arroz. Our servers were friendly and helpful and the food was delivered quickly and hot. Very pleasant.

Food was great but pricey. I would not recommend it for a family with kids. The cuban food was great and they had many options to choose from. I enjoyed it.

I wasn't sure what I would get in the tourist trap of Disney, but the food at Bongos was excellent. Both the Roja Vieja and the Lechon Asado were awesome! The mojitos were yummy too. The service was slow, but other than that, amazing Cuban food.
