Came for a late light dinner. The slow roast pork is out of this world. Rest if the food our party had was also quite good. The steak on the Caesar Salad was very tender. The only let down was the soggy plantain chips. Music...More

BONGOS in Disney springs unfortunately very loud and crowded. The kids menu didn't work and the main menu was not kids friendly. The flatbread with honey was not tasty. It was sticky however. I would not recommend it.

The Churrasco steak here is fantastic. The kids chicken tenders were freshly prepared and delicious. The mojitos are large and prepared with love a care. The only issue with the place was the staff who were rude and uninterested. Bring back cash tips Disney!

Is entertainment provided only after 6 pm, or will it be the same fun experience earlier in the afternoon? (Conflicting info on websites). We are planning for a 5pm dinner on a Saturday.
