If you ever wanted to eat inside a pineapple, this is your chance!
Created by Gloria Estefan and her husband, Emilio, the pineapple-shaped Bongos Cuban Cafe is a little piece of Cuba in the middle of Orlando. The restaurant aims to recreate a 1950s Havana nightclub and serves Caribbean and Cuban cuisine for lunch and dinner. While and underrated restaurant for Disney guests, this is a decent spot to sample if you enjoy Cuban cuisine and often turns into quite a nightspot.

- This is a top nightspot, but also serves lunch and calls itself a “family” restaurant. It might be a good bet for busy days when other restaurants are full.
Famous Dishes: Cubano (Cuban sandwich), pan con lechon (pork sandwich), pollo asado (roast chicken), paella de mariscos (seafood paella) and flan de leche (traditional flan)
