We got there just before the Noon crowd. Good thing. It was May and they had their seasonal shrimp salad. I found it so so. A bland mayo salad with shrimp. My husband had the fish tacos and he enjoyed them. Parking is limited.

Been there for lunch mainly and the food selections, freshness, special daily options, and delicious tea...makes this place a jewel in Galveston. You will not be dissappointed. Sometimes you have to wait to place your order however it is worth it!

I had the Island Slammer for lunch and it was great. I went with a number of people who all got different dishes and everything looked great. Absolutely no complaints!

We have been here twice now, and I can't wait for my next trip to Texas, so we can go back again. We had breakfast both times. They serve sambal sauce on the side, and it is so good, we had to ask for more. It goes on everything - and they make it there. We sat outside on their... More

Good food from starters to desserts, all made with care. Satisfied the grandkids as well as the grandparents. Helpful and friendly staff. Located in a neighborhood between the seawall and downtown.

Nice quiet restaurant in an old house that was away from the crowds. We ate on the patio and enjoyed our dinner.

Another friend is now a fan of Mosquito Cafe. I was introduced to it through my teacher friends. Now one of my non-teacher BFFs claims this is the closes she has gotten to a relaxing 'Austin' atmosphere restaurant. We ate outside . . . one of our first sunny days in a few filled with rain. Temps were in the... More

My wife and I live in Galveston and enjoy trying new places to eat. Galveston is packed with just about every cuisine imaginable and the Mosquito Cafe is one of those places. For lunch, I had the Simply Pasta with chicken, and my wife Grilled Shrimp Tacos... both big servings and really tasty. Big portions... take some home with you.... More

My husband had the tilapia wrap while I had the grilled veggie quesadilla. I loved the quesadilla. The tortilla stayed crisp even to the last bite. Local beers. Great service.
