Bongos Cuban Restaurant
restaurant is in the heart of Disney's West Side. Gloria Estefan and husband
Emilio created this cafe as the Disney version of old Havana.
The meals are worth the wait though!
Our top recommendation
was the Filete de pescado a la Catalana - a lightly breaded filet of Fish
with a homemade creole sauce and served with white rice and maduros for
The thick black bean soup kissed with onion is the appetizer of choice here.
For a main course, many authentic Cuban favorites are here to choose from, but the thin Cuban steak with grilled onions and saffron rice cooked in a paella pan with a variety of seafood and fresh vegetables outshines the rest. Coffee-lovers should sample the thick, dark Cuban coffee.
