My wife and I walked over to Bongos from the hotel next door for a beachside dinner. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset from our balcony before heading next door for dinner. From the minute we arrived we were greeted warmly and was seated at an awesome table right on the sand. It was a little cool after the sun went... More

We had a great time on a Thursday afternoon watching the sunset and enjoying drinks and appetizers. I would suggest the coconut chicken and the scallops. Both were large portions and delicious. Roger the bartender was informative and fun. The patio heaters made it very enjoyable even on a cool January evening. I will definitely return!

You can wiggle your toes in the sand if that is what floats your boat, or sit on a deck if you want to keep your feet clean. The setting next to the beach is remarkable, the service is excellent, and the food is very reasonably priced and quite delicious. We have eaten here three times already during our stay,... More

This setting is the best for viewing the sunset. The skyline, and palm trees make the a great spot for getting great pictures of the sunset. The outdoor seating menu has something for everyone. The burger I had was excellent.
