Yum

Cute restaurant, friendly staff , and the food was great. I ordered the linguine with shrimp, I think they call it "simple pasta" and it was delicious as was the house salad ordered with it.

Hubby wasn't thrilled about eating something besides shrimp on the coast, but he loved his green chili burger. Lots of meat which was cooked perfectly. The grilled chicken Caesar Salad was excellent with a full size grilled chicken breast still hot. The salad dressing was very tasty. A unique restaurant that's worth a trip. Look around the restaurant. You'll mosquitoes... More

The best place to eat in Galveston! The garden is delightful, the wine lists long and varied, and the food is delicious. The cuisine is reminiscent of trendy European cafes, and the staff are friendly and informative. Don't take kids -- they probably won't like it, and would probably disturb everyone else there. Fast food, it is not. Beautiful, classy... More

The menu is small but portions were not, and our meals were very good. Service and atmosphere made us feel, almost, as if we lived nearby. Don't pass up a huge slice of Lemonade Dream Cake for dessert.

2 Sundays ago was our first time here. We really enjoyed the food. A little pricey, but you get quite large servings. I has the corned beef hash tacos and they were wonderful. The wife had the breakfast bowl. We both enjoyed our food. Service was good and food arrived at the table quickly. I would recommend that you try... More

Very cute cafe. I went there for breakfast and was surprised to see Apple pecan salad as a side but I decided to try it. It was delicious.

We went there with few friends! I ordered the special which was red fish. They added cheese on the top of the fish and that tasted funny! I don't think chess goes well with fish. My friends seemed a little happier with their meals than I did! The service was ok, nothing to brag about! The Restsurant was pretty cold... More

James C, General Manager at Mosquito Cafe, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. The topping we put on the Red Fish special is a homemade remoulade sauce which has parmesan cheese in it. Parmesan cheese is a common item to be served with a fish entree. I'm sorry you were uncomfortable with the temperature of the restaurant, at the beginning of dinner service I set our thermostats at... More

Restaurant offers fresh and tasty, mostly wholesome items Availability might change daily. Always yummy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Meal total usually below $15.00. Small parking lot behind building, street parking available, but limited.

So many great choices of fresh and original dishes that you will have a hard time deciding what to order. It gets crowded, so go early and if you have to wait in line don't worry. It's worth the wait!!
