Been there a while ago and went back with friends, other places in Long Street were quiet....Cafe Mojito was busy !!!.... Live Music....Reggae and Caribbean, great vibe, lots of happy and beautiful people, we were lucky to find a table outside and could watch the colorful and vibrant street life from this angle. 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

Wandering down Long Street, Cape Town, the heat got to be a bit much. We stopped for some drinks. Fast service, friendly staff and delicious Mojito's - what more do you want?

The ambiance is great, the service is awesome and the meals are really tasty. Dropped in to Mojito for breakfast a couple of times and it simple made my day kick off on a high note. Would return again and again.
