Went there a couple of times , it's just okay to me , food was good and music from band okay, only thing we found that we didn't like was a lot of noise , other then that it's a night out !

When we saw the place we thought oh boy it's not as fancy as we thought but inside we got to eat by candlelight and we went a little late so it wasn't crowded

These is a great place located in miami fl, with a cuban style 100 %. Where you can drink a fresh mojito and dance a salsa music.

The ambiance is great and the food is to die for. The service was awesome and the menu selections will satisfy.

Location, location, location.. that pretty much sums up Bongos. It is a bit pricey but being located in close proximity to the American Airlines Arena makes it a ideal place to enjoy Cuban style food.

We went to this place with some friends some time ago and were very excited about the place, but it was disappointing, to say the least.

Food is expensive, not a good taste of Cuban food. Better Cuban food found in Hialeah for a quarter of a price Bongo's charges. Not recommended!
