I came here years ago with my family & had such a great night, so I came back with big expectations and was not disappointed al all! Great cocktail menu, which is always a win for us! The pizza and nachos were delicious!! And a great vibe for watching the rugby.

Visited Bongos with the intention of watching the rugby game and having a drink. Ended up having the south African pizza and bacon nachos. Top notch👌 good selection of on tap beers as well as cocktails. Strawberry daiquiri wasn't disapointing - which is always a good thing.

Although the location is not the best (view onto the highway), we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed the good food. We had a vegetarian pizza with salami and a beef lasagne special, both were great! Food took a while to arrive but with good company that's not a big problem.

The whole of Bongos was beautifully decorated with a hippy theme with punch, pizza, DJ etc.... More
