A hidden away gem right out in the open. Set back off Hwy 111, next door to the newly relocated CV Rep, Bonta is a unique restaurant full of culinary surprises. Ambrose at the bar is a delight and the husband & wife owners come out to greet you personally. The menu is a blend of the best of Austria & Argentina with Italian thrown in to the mix. Seriously, not kidding but it works. Don't ignore the fish & chips. My favorite is the stroganoff but the empanadas are delish! And the Happy Hour it lengthy with all the faves at reasonable prices. The caesar salad is cold & crisp. Enjoy! More...

We have visited Bonta numerous times, always being warmly welcomed. Food is consistently very tasty and good value. It's one of our favorite restaurants here in the desert.

Every meal here is perfection. That is one reason we keep coming back. In fact this was our second night in a row. Another reason is that the owners Hector and Petra make you feel so at home. Good value. A must try.

Bonta has a decent mix of Argentinian, German and Italian menu options, the food has been consistently good and it remains a go-to option for a casual meal when I'm in town. I do wish they had a wider variety of empanadas, asado & other typical Argentinian dishes like choripan, matambre, lomo, milanesas and so on however. For a livelier environment, I recommend going when they have live music or their flamenco nights (why they aren't tango or chamame nights I'm not sure). More...

So surprised to find authentic German food in the area! Schnitzel and rouladin are worth coming back for. Wine list needs improvement. Couldn't believe they had Copper Canyon on the list, eben at the bottom end Very good service, though! More...

We’ve eaten at Bonta before, but I can NEVER remember getting better service. Our server was delightful. He got us cocktails from the bar and allowed us to visit with no pressure. He knew we were going to a play at CV Rep afterwards and approached our table to tell us he was about to take a large order from another table and suggested we order before the larger order was placed to ensure we received our meal more quickly and to give us enough time to eat before the theatre. He had a wonderful personality with a great sense of humor and continued to check on us throughout our stay. The best! More...

Our first time. A varied menu of Argentinian, Italian, German. Something for everyone to try. The restaurant is very lively with high ceilings, so a bit loud and festive. Not for a romantic, quiet dinner. Our meals were very good. Service was better than most restaurants. We'll probably return with people we know would really appreciate the eclectic menu. Definitely check it out if you haven't been. More...

We always enjoy eating at Bonta. The German plate is our favorite, but we also enjoy the 2kinds of schnitzels. There is something here for everyone, German, Argentinian, Italian, and a variety of fish dishes. This coupled with a friendly staff and almost always the owners stop by to say hi and make sure everything was to your liking. Never leave without having the best strudel outside of Germany and Austria. An excellent family run restaurant awaits you. Now with the CVRep theater next door, it may be best to make reservations. Catch a meal before or after a performance. More...

We enjoyed our meal at Bonta from the beginning to the end. Our waitress was very friendly and checked on us frequently. There were many options on the menu that sounded interesting and we had a hard time deciding what to order. Our meal was excellent and prepared well. We look forward to returning and trying other items on the menu. More...
