Foursquare Tips

  • Service is NOT slow, just impatient people!
  • Service is typical Cuban service, not slow, not bad, just giving you plenty of time to eat and enjoy the company. Not every culture tears through meals :)
  • As a restauranteur coming to a KnOWN chef's restaurant, I find the food SUPER DISAPPOINTING. In fact if Gordon Ramsey we're doing his show in this restaurant everyone would be fired.
  • Love the live band but it's seriously too LOUD. Don't come here if you actually want to talk to the people you are dining with. Sit outside instead. The food is hit or miss but the drinks are awesome!
  • Once you're done with your meal you have to go to the pier and then look up. Bongo's is actually shaped like a pineapple and you have all the palm and coconut trees as pillars on the inside.
  • Great mojitos and food, bad service. The waiters tended to hang out with each other instead of tend to their patrons.
  • Try the Vaca Frita (the first thing under meat). One of the best things I've ever tasted.
  • Enjoy some authentic Cuban food where the rhythm's gonna get you!
  • Our waiter is an a-hole.
  • They have the best mojitos ever!!
  • The walk up window has great cuban sandwiches, papa rellenos, empenadas(prefer the chicken) all at cheap prices. And if you're a CM, you get a great discount!
  • Skip the long wait times & host stand, use NoWait to get in line from your phone: http://bit.ly/1aMOQaH
  • Be hungry or you will bring home in a box. Great food. Great service.
  • Buy the wooden watch. And leave your crying kids @ home thanks!
  • Ask for their homemade hot sauce. Be careful though.
  • If you plan on actually having a conversation with your dining companion - this is not the place for you. SO LOUD!
  • Worst restaurant experience ever. They don't care either. They know they are a tourist trap and you won't be back.
  • Mojito...Yum!!!
  • Slow service, lack of Disney customer service, and a wait for 1 hour with reservation. Not a great start for Disney.
  • Great guitar player
