This famous tropical Cuban/International restaurant and cocktail bar is popular with travelers and locals alike. Sip on a rum-soaked Mojito, order a traditional Cuban sandwich and while away the day, watching the colorful chaos that is Long Street.Established in 2003, Cafe Mojito is a friendly, reliable spot that serves up some of the tastiest burgers in the city. Open for lunch and dinner. The menu offers burgers, nachos, salads and a great Tapas selection for the not-so-hungry. Cocktail Happy Hour runs from 5pm -7pm and from 11pm till midnight - Monday to Sunday.

This place will forever hold fond memories for me as it's the place I spent my last night at the end of a 6 week trip round East and South Africa in. My friend and I were determined to make our last night on long street a good one and this place did not disappoint. We went on a monday... More

We ordered 4 different Happy Hour Cocktails... More

I've been here with my boyfriend a few times, actually lately we go a lot, and I think this speaks by itself hahaha... We have had a brunch a few times and is really good. Only thing that I would recomend is to put more latino music hahaha... Everything else is really nice.

This would probably be the best Sundays I have had in 2015... and big ups to Cafe Mojito, they never cease to amaze Me, which reminded Me why I missed Cape Town after going on holiday. I decided to bring a couple of friends who are visiting Cape Town and WOW!.. It was a sunny day, very hot as well,... More

Probably the worst food out of all the restaurants around that part of long street. Half price cocktails made with cheap and foul alcohol. Good vibe for good music, but a poor show for the location. Rather go next door or across the street.

Okay service is always excellent here. I don't eat here very often but walk past a lot. There is always at least one waitron with an eye out to ensure you get served fast. I had their cheese gourmet burger ( I love burgers lol), and was soooo impressed. I sat outside and have to admit the eye candy in... More

I went in because the food people on the sidewalk tables were eating looked good. Sat inside on the no smoking side during happy 2 hours 5-7PM. The table felt a little sticky. The music was pretty loud and hip hop is not my favourite. They changed the mix after 7 to a more spanish/mexican sound. We each ordered beer... More
