Bongos Cuban Café
Hollywood, FL 33314
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
The restaurants at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino are not exactly known for their subtle architecture. On giant two- and three-story façades, signs proclaim in eight-foot lettering: "Tequila! Italian Food! Burgers!" By comparison, Bongo's Cuban Café, owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan, is extremely elegant. The building is a nondescript white with an espresso-brown wall. On it: just the restaurant's name and its mascot, the Cuban Bongo Player, his head down in concentration. Like the mascot and title, the food is Latin-- with a large emphasis on Cuban.The menu features classic media noche, bistec, shrimp ajilo, and ceviches.
Tips from foursquare
Ambulatory mojito carts & a Cuban-fusion menu (ropa vieja, “palomilla” steak, paella, ceviche), including private cabanas on the rooftop lounge & the proximity of the casino resort make this a must.
Bring your drinks and take the elevator upstairs to the "Skylounge," a rooftop bar with cabanas and a pretty view.
Worst food ever and most expensive cuban food in the world. Car accident let us at 305-NO-FAULT help you. Call me at 305.804.2902 to help you out.
Great atmosphere, waitresses SUCK! they don't know those alcohol.
Not quite sure why people think it is expensive. Excellent food and excellent price . Some people probably need to get out more.
