Bongo's Cuban Cafe - Miami
Will only judge the foodBeing a Estefans’ owned place it is easy to predict music is the star dish…well, I did not have the opportunity to judge since I went at 5.30pm and left at 7pm, half an hour before the music started.
The food was a nice surprise, because they tought us simple can be gourmet. This is a cuban titled place, so we asked for Masitas de Puerco, Fried Fish and Plantain. Well, if you are latin and make these choices ,you will say “this is very good”, and if you are not, you will have an incredible culinary trip to our continent. You might end regreting not being a latino. Next time I will make sure to get there a little later and maybe Gloria will sing for me.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood times, good foodWe had a great time. We went on a Sunday afternoon which was great because the place was almost empty. The hostess sat us immediately and our waitress was helpful and knowledgable. She offered us a cocktail. We asked for the traditional Mojito. Someone from our party asked for a Mojito pitcher which saved us some $$. The food was excellent. They even had options for vegetarians. Will visit again!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThey made feel really specialThey made feel really special Imy birthday with the band singing happy birthday to me!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI took out-of-town relativesI took out-of-town relatives who love this restaurant. We had a bad experience with noise and horrible food at the Bongo's in Hollywood's Seminole Hard Rock so I was afraid that the food would be as bad. The food at the Miami location was excellent. Vaca frita still the best and the watermelon mojito was very good too.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMParadise in Miami.I loved the tropical theme and the lights,i loved the music,the food was spectacular,the waiter was very nice and very helpful,matter of fact everybody was very nice and helpful.If i could give this restaurant a 10 stars i would definitely.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful butEverything was wonderful but service was terrible. I'm a waiter myself and would never write a bad review about anyone... But we could not find our server anywhere... I even asked the manager for two more mojitos and the check... Got the mojitos but check never came took about 35 min to get the check after that... Waiter greeted us in the beginning by filling water ran away before we could order drinks... Then we ordered appetizers and he left before we could order entrea. appetizer came out we ate it and didnt see our waiter for another 30 min before we could order out entries... Amazing place amazing food but possibly the worst service I have ever had...3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
