I was intrigued of the service by Daniel Henriquez. Service and food done to perfection is hard to find. My son and I were more than satisfied. The restaurant is fun and right in the middle of it all.

We had been advised to visit Bongos by a friend but was so disappointed. It was very busy and noisy but we didn't mind this as it was certainly lively. The service was excellent but the food was so disappointing. We wouldn't go again.

The food was excellent! The atmosphere was noisy because of the crowd, but our meal was still enjoyable and we could still converse without raising our voices.

The meals were delicious but the drinks and food were expensive similar to most places at the Springs. We were seated on the second floor right by area servers hung out, so too much traffic for us.

If you happen to be at Disney Springs then go. It is not a go to place, go out of your way place. I would not drive here for Cuban food. I love a good avocado salad and being vegetarian it is hard to find menu choices at Disney that are in line with our life style; healthy and tasty.... More

Thought I would try Bongos this time while visiting Lake Buena Vista but that was a mistake. 10 of us ate at Bongos over the holidays and all of us thought it was nothing special.

We were looking for food and decided to go to Bongos because the waiting time in other places were longer. Being latinos we were skeptic about going to a latino place in the middle of Disney. We thought it may be a tourist trap so our expectations weren't high. We only waited 15 minutes for our table. Yanelly Dinorah, our... More
