Entering the Restaurant , you have to climb a two story staircase that smells of secondhand smoke. And generally the place had a scummy feel to it. Its more of a bar than a restaurant. And not a classy bar. I was desperately hungry and read great reviews which made me stay. They only serve pizza and nachos, but the pizza was good, except the pizza base is paper thin which aloud my 6 year old son to finish a whole pizza on his own. Good for him but not so much for his dad who could have eaten 2 pizza.

Dear Francois M,

Judging from your other reviews of Wilderness it seems that you weren't very happy about anything Wilderness has to offer. Bongos has never been an inside smoking venue. We have a very clear outside smoking deck so your comments regarding the smell of smoke inside seem very strange. Our other reviews regarding our pizza's speak for themselves, which your son clearly agrees with. I am unsure as to why you take your 6 year old into bars in the first place, but it is worth noting that should you wish to enjoy our pizza again, we not only do takeaways but we also deliver!

The pizza at Bongos was really delicious. Staff is super friendly and there is a cool vibe with fire place and pool tables. Would recommend going with a group of friends or for a super chilled date night.

We went to Bongos on the recommendation of Ronnie (of Ronnies Sex Shop fame) on our visit to Wilderness. What a wonderful experience! Friendly wait staff, comfortable atmosphere and value for money food. I loved the craft gin selection and decor.
