Gloria and Emilio Estefan's Award-Winning Cuban Restaurant.
Located at Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL., Bongos Cuban Café draws its inspiration from classic Cuban supper clubs. The multi-level restaurant, lounge and bar boasts a 7,000 square foot indoor restaurant, a 5,000 square foot rooftop lounge with a 360-degree unobstructed view of the entire property and 2 outdoor patios. Inside of the main 7,000 square foot restaurant, guests will experience a chic yet comfortable atmosphere, with white tables and seats which are layered with different textures; polished dark mahogany panels throughout the restaurant; the two-sided main bar (one side features a stage on top of it while the other side extends to the outside of the venue) and a 20 foot window that allows guests to see into a one-of-a-kind custom-made vertical flame rotisserie. Twin glass elevators ascend to the magnificant rooftop lounge adorned with private cabanas and plush lounge seating where guests can enjoy libations under the stars.

Emilio and Gloria Estefan’s restaurant group that includes Larios on the Beach, Bongos Cuban Café and Estefan Kitchen Express MIA.
After achieving success with their music, Emilio and Gloria had an opportunity to open their first Cuban restaurant on Miami Beach in 1992. They felt it was a great extension of what they had already accomplished through their music, which was to showcase their culture to the world. It is another way to show their fans who they are – not just through their music, but through their culinary heritage.
Their restaurants bring these two worlds together. When you walk into any one of their restaurants, you’re surrounded by Cuban music while you eat. So it’s food and music, two of the best things in life. Estefan Kitchen allows people from all over the world to discover Cuban food, and learn more about our culture and heritage.
Enjoy! Buen Provecho!
