Atmosphere is excellent and prices are average. They have music almost nightly and the sunsets are beautiful. If you are staying at a hotel near Bongos, I suggest walking on the beach to get there.

We really enjoyed the food here and the view was tremendous. Staff was friendly and attentive. We got to hear some good music and even see a few short weddings. We'll definitely be back for the food.

This is a great location for lunch or dinner outside. Plenty of shade if needed. Food was great and service was quick. There is a wait at dinner but worth it with live music and a bar.

I didn't see any pets when we were there and the seating is kind of tight so I don't think so. If you are looking for a pet friendly place we went to Rick's Reef and there was a couple sitting outside with a small dog on a... More
