“Definitely has appeal, but service and food lacked”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My friend and I went to Mongo's on a Friday for dinner and drinks. The service was quite slow...it took about 45 minutes to get our food (Chili Soup, and Quesadillas...not too complicated). The drinks were good and fairly priced. The place was just filling up as we left...looks like a fun place to dance. This review is more about the food than the atmosphere.

We went here for a salsa night, told that it was going to be good food and packed. We never ate and even if it wasnt that full with people it was ok drinks and a nice place!

“Awful service”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Went there for dinner and to have a beer the other night. It took them about 15 min to give me the menu because the waiters/owners were busy chatting between them. The food was neither good nor bad... Asked for the check, which was 51 bolivianos, gave 100... and only got back 40. Basically the waitress stole 9 bolivianos (about USD 1.50)... Couldn't be bothered to argue so just left without saying anything. However, this kind of service is unacceptable.

“I do not recomend this place , terrible service from the owners !”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I went last Tuesday night with some friends , I had a booking for ten people , the waiter was clueless and very rude ...after a while a group of people came and asked if they could sit in our table , we said ok but it was a big mistake because when we went to dance this people took over our table and made our drinks dissapear !...but the worst thing is that we realized that one of this persons was the owners girlfriend ! A very rude and immature Brazilian girl , when we demanded ours missed drinks and our table she told us that we needed to go away , then she was complained to every waiter and security guards for no reason just lying over us and going crazy around the pub and threatened us !...we had enough and decided to leave , when we were at the door we saw her with one employee drinking a bottle of vodka and being mad , we tried to complain to the owner jus name is Collin but he ignored us and said he didn't have time and went back to his table drinking with a group of indigenous people , definitely not coming back here again !!!

“Party Spot!”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Cool place, Late night party place with foreigners and locals. We Went in a group of 8 and shared a bottle of something, they give you a free bottle of coke to mix. The atmosphere is cool, the decoration of the place gives u the feeling like u are in a big living room. Open untill late. cool spot in vibrant Sopocachi.
