“Great place for lunch or sunset drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We walked along the beach to find this cute little place. The food is pretty good, and the drinks are reasonably priced.
Only draw back is that during the weekend there were several wedding taking place on the beach in front of the bistro and it was kind of annoying to have to look at people getting married while you are just trying to relax and enjoy the day.

“Great”

Great service and great drinks. I would recommend getting a cup so you get more if you're going to go more than once.

“An Unbelieveable Experience.....thank you Christine and Trip Advisor!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had been to all the theme parks and attractions and we were hoping for a great day at the beach and we got what we wanted. The weather was perfect when we arrived and we were looking for a place to eat lunch. we consulted Trip Advisor and came across a review for The Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort that said "Christine at Bongos took very good care of us and made us feel right at home!" This review was from Dec 26,2012 and Christine was working that day and our experience was fantastic as well. And like the previous review said "the view was spectacular" as your table is right on that famous gulf beach sand. And yes i took off my shoes while I was eating! The food was delicious ....I had the Caesar Salad and everyone was pleased with their food. The sun was warm on my back....I can't wait to return! I hope that you read this Christine....you made our day!
