My wife and I had a couple of days in the Orlando area, and have eaten at a Latin/Cuban restaurant in our Midwest hometown, so were attracted to try ""authentic"" upscale Cuban food. In the middle of the afternoon, service was a bit slow. The stuffed potato appetizer was very good, but unfortunately was the highlight of the meal. It seemed as though the chef substituted saltiness for the real flavor we expected. I had a creole dish, which was OK but nothing memorable. We had two kinds of rice, white and a rice with black beans, both were primarily salt-flavored. For dessert we tried the chocolate tres leches, which again was OK but not as good as we've had at a quality Latin/Cuban restaurant in the middle of Kansas. All in all, Bongo's was overpriced for what at best was mediocre food. We were looking for a memorable dinner, and went away modestly disappointed.
Pros: Attractive setting
Cons: Food Mediocre to Average, Service Slow
