Bongo's at Disney Springs closing later this year
I may be one of the few that says this, but I really liked that place. I think I ate there three times in the past year - and I'm not a local! Good food. Great drinks.
We haven't yet, but will have to make an effort to at least get to their express window this trip.
I just felt like no one went....no vloggers the dis seemed to ignore it no one really talked about it...
Definitely didn’t seem like a popular venue overall. Probably the cuisine was unappealing to the masses.
Hi have reservations in June. I really hope the food quality does not go down hill. Any opinions?
Food quality shouldn’t go down.
Wasn’t it supposed to close a while back? Or is this just the deadline for when it was originally supposed to close?
It’s been rumored to close for a while.
Please do!! If you can, do the sit down. In the evening, they have live music and dancers. Lot of fun!
I don't think so. Gloria Estefan runs a couple of restaurants, I believe. So I don't think that they would risk a degradation of quality.
Interestingly, if you go to their website, it says "Under Construction for Upgraded Maintenance" - whatever that means.
It used to be a favorite, but we haven't eaten there in years (we usually only make it to DS once a trip for dinner and Raglan Road always wins). It was my first introduction to tres leches cake, which is one of my favorite desserts in the world.
Yea I was told they are revamping completely-whatever that means.
Bongos closes in August
Yep, and she is about to open a new one (Estafan Kitchen) at Margaritaville in Orlando.
Oh right - so maybe that's why they're marketing this as a "revamping"/"Under construction" by opening at Margaritaville and closing Bongos at DS.
My next scheduled trip is this December and I was looking forward to eating there. I am a big fan of Cuban food.
We just ate there last week. It was okay.
That's a shame. When I was local I never ate there because too many other restaurants started popping up that I wanted to try and their prices were a bit much for me. Any ideas on what's going to go there instead?
