Cuban-American 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 noise, including a Desi Arnaz look-alike who sometimes
plays, and tables nearly on top of one another, can make
for a very loud dinner.
meals are worth the wait though!
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 only $16.95
thick black bean soup kissed with onion is the appetizer
of choice here.
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.
Daily 11:00am to 2:00am
Average meal price per head is sub-$30. Starters from $4.95
and entrées from $10.95. Prices exclude tax and gratuities.
Bongos is often crowded and reservations are accepted only
for parties of seven or more. Be prepared for a substantial
wait during the summer months.
