Great for Carnivores and Oenophiles, terrible for Vegetarians! – I went to Thee Bungalow numerous times with meat-eating friends. Not only was there no vegetarian entrees, one time the waiter refused to give me an appetizer as my main meal. My companions all ate well, and had a wonderful time. Basically, as a vegetarian we were either given tasteless steamed vegetables or crappy pasta. But if you eat meat and love great wine, this is the place for you!
Average at best – If you're looking for really good food and a professional wait staff this insn't the place. No one in our party came away thinking that this was an awesome experience. I had the lamb (the site won't let me give the entries full name it must thing the first work is vulgar but you know how lamb is server...it's a XXXX of lamb). It was OK but not great. Several others had the duck that night and were unimpressed and duck is supposed to be a specialty there. The place was average at best. I'd spend my dollars elsewhere.
Just recently purchased by the Cohn Restaurant Group, Thee Bungalow is located in the seaside community of Ocean Beach. Adjacent to Point Loma, Thee Bungalow Restaurant has been a San Diego dining favorite for over 30 years. The restaurants success is unique in that it is located in a quiet San Diego neighborhood away from most tourist destinations. It is best known by the locals who have come to appreciate Thee Bungalow for its wonderful food, consistent quality and friendly, caring staff.
A wonderful, old, country bungalow, Thee Bungalow consists of four intimate dining rooms just perfect for that romantic rendezvous, small party or business meeting. They can accommodate parties from 15-40 people.
Specialties of Thee Bungalow include the famous roast duck, fresh seafood, escargot Bourgogne, wild game , prime grade beef as well as incredible dessert souffles. An annual award winner of the Wine Spectators Best of Award of Excellence, Thee Bungalows extensive wine list features modestly priced wines from all regions of the world. A full service bar is also available.
This place is a must visit. Cudos to the Cohn Restaurant Group for carrying on one of the biggest traditions in San Diego.
HORRIBLE Food – Based on the recommendation of this site and others, I recommended this place for a family get together. What a mistake. The duck (which 3 of us ordered) was like beef jerky, and the cherry sauce was syrupy and sweet. Everyone who had the duck had the same comment afterwards - tough and inedible. And duck is their signature dish??? I read that Thee Bungalow has gone downhill since it was purchased by the Cohn chain. I assume this to be true, because I can't imagine this place ever getting a positive review. Please heed my advice if you are looking for a good place to eat in the San Diego area, keep looking!!
