    Guava ribs and Skirt steak are delicious. Service is very good. Don't let impatient people steer you away from some very tasty Cuban cuisine. Drinks are good, too, including the mango colada.

    The service was right on point. I'm not sure what the other ppl are talking about but the food was amazing. I had the 1st seafood option & I couldn't be happier. Mojitos were superb. Overall = 9.5.

    Authentic, quality Cuban food! Service is relatively fast. Great atmosphere. Call for a reservation or be prepared for a 30-60 minute wait for a table. Pricey, but worth it.

    Amazing food! Cuban Style Breaded Chicken is a must with white rice n black beans. Very disappointed on the service we received on our last visit on 9-12. Server wasn't very assertive to our needs.

    Fantastic mojitos, great cubanos. What more to ask from a Cuban restaurant? Jhan Paul was a fantastic bartender.

    Swap out the white rice that comes with most dishes for TNT seasoned yellow rice. It's delicious and no charge to change.

    While the food is great, the prices are beyond ridiculously overpriced. But since you can't go to a Bongos every day if you're not from around here, I wouldn't miss out on this place! Try it!

    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!

    You still have to stand in line even with a reservation. We arrived about 20 mins early- it took us that long to get to the reception area but we were seated immediately. Very fun live music.

    Very loud inside due to vaulted ceilings, tiled everything, and apparently no volume adjustment knob on the sound system. Ask to sit inside the pineapple if you wish to converse over dinner.

    The food is delicious but the service is severely lacking and management is unprofessional. They screwed up the bill horribly. How hard is it considering we were on the dining plan?

    Service was horrible no one smiling in the staff. Acted like they were bored. Food has decreased fast since the last time I was there. If it was not at Disney it would be out Of business by now.

    The service was good, the food was satisfactory but the hostess was extremely rude and a woman washed her child's feces in the ladies room sink. Not a Downtown Disney pick for me!!!!
