Absolutely amazing time at Bongos!! I've visited Bongos on several occasions when being in Wilderness, always for their most delicious thin based pizza. I am never disappointed as they are consistent with their pizzas and their prices have never hurt the pocket. My last experience was super fun as they had one of their local artists, Wild Lettuce performing his latest CD launch (for free). Was a great vibe and had good times and relaxed with new friends made from out of town.
Bongos seems to be doing something right, and their friendly staff really make it worth your while.

This establishment should not be rated under restaurants but under a separate heading as Pub or even lower as Joint Club. Service what service. Arrived for dinner to wait for 5 mins and not even a good evening greeting or welcome we had to scout around to find a place to sit while staff hanging around kissing behind the counter next to pizza oven and other staff seating at table with family or friends and finishing dinner while we waited to NO SERVICE. We got up and went to FLAVA CAFE.

Dear Reviewer, Id like to thank you for the feedback and also apologize for your experience. I had to leave bongos to be managed by temporary untrained staff while attending to my other business interests in Johannesburg.

I'd love you to contact me so that I can make up for our mistakes by giving you free pizza with a much better experience at Bongos as it always should be.

Love

Bongos

Wanting a somewhat lighter meal we decided to give Bongos a try and we had the most delicious pizza I have ever tasted. Bongos was a regular haunt of our host at Cinnamon Boutique.It was very quiet the evening we went but it was a good traffic watching spot!
