-- Table Service Meal (2017)

Notes:
International superstars Emilio and Gloria Estefan introduced the opening of Bongos Cuban Cafe, a blend of authentic Cuban cuisine with the culture of old Havana, presented in a setting that marries tropical deco with the sizzle of South Beach glamour. The builder's triangular architectural design, by the renowned Bernardo Fort Brescia, is dominated by the massive two-story pineapple-shaped adobe structure that fills the skyline of Downtown Disney. No detail was overlooked by well know interior designer Luciano Franchi, from the dazzling mosaic of hand-painted murals evoking old world Cuba of the 1940's and 50's, to the conga drum shaped bar stools. The savory, flavorful, and authentic essence of Cuban cuisine is featured in our menu.

Add to any entree: Grilled Shrimp (camerones a la plancha) $12; Sauteed Garlic Shrimp (Camarones al ajillo) $12; 9 oz. Roasted Lobster Tail (Cola de langosta) $20.

Add a side salad or soup cup to any entree for $4.00.
