The pizza at Bongos was really delicious. Staff is super friendly and there is a cool vibe with fire place and pool tables. Would recommend going with a group of friends or for a super chilled date night.

We went to Bongos on the recommendation of Ronnie (of Ronnies Sex Shop fame) on our visit to Wilderness. What a wonderful experience! Friendly wait staff, comfortable atmosphere and value for money food. I loved the craft gin selection and decor.
