First of all, I suggest purchasing the Disney dining plan if you plan to eat anywhere in the Disney area. The pricing would have been a bit overpriced if we had not had the dining plan. That being said, we enjoyed our meal! The food was excellent and so were the mojitos! Our service was very good however if you... More

Look, as far as location/atmosphere goes, can't be beat. Would;t even mind paying the bill if the food wasn't; soooo average. Dancers and music were a nice surprise but still can't justify the price.

I hate writing this review, because I really like Gloria Estefan, the owner. We ordered lunch of the dinner menu. My wife ordered the 11 ounce Skirt Steak and I ordered the Ropa Viejo. We both had water. The 11 ounce Skirt Steak shrunk to about 5 ounces and came with white rice and black beans on the side. My... More

My kids and I ate here while in Orlando last week. I love Cuban/Caribbean food, plus when I saw that they had plantain chips I knew we had to eat here. My four year old LOVES plantain chips after our recent trip to Jamaica. I was impressed by the prices for being on Disney property, they weren't outrageous. My kids... More

A friend and I was walking by the restaurant in Disney springs and had to go inside. From their decor, to music, to food.. It was all great! We went on a Thursday night and it was really packed but we didn't experience a long wait time. They had dancers and a live band and even included the audience in... More

Had the Cuban Roast Pork, and found it very tasty. Strongly recommend the sweet fried plantains instead of the usual fries.

I've been coming here to Bongos at least twice a year for four or five years when we come up to visit Disney World. In the past, they had a great dark sipping run that I would enjoy while smoking a cigar from Sosa Family Cigar Company across the walkway. I would sit outside in a shady area designated for... More

We have been to Disney about seven times now and have tried many of the restaurants both at the parks and at Disney Springs. This is the first time we have been competely disappointed. My son and I dined here and ordered two pork dishes and sodas. Total cost $75 plus tax and tip. Bottom line is I got a... More
