Had dinner here on Friday night and although we have been to this area before we missed this secret spot. It's next to the Subway on Pacific and 29th Street. I can tell you, we won't miss it again! Excellent Food and although busy the staff was great and so were the cocktails! We'll be back!

Nice little restaurant. We had the empanadas, paella, pork and rice fried plantains. Everything was fresh and delicious. The mojitos were great and the dessert was off the chain! Definitely go early because it is tiny!

This was a very good meal. We arrived there fo 5:30, so we were able to enjoy Happy Hour prices for the drinks and appetizer. There were two fish taco orders, and a vegetarian meal, with tomatoes, onions olives and peppers over rice. I added the shrimp option. The shrimp were cooked just right. The whole meal really brought forth... More

I have dine in several Caribbean restaurants to include Miami, New York, Atlanta, and many other places and Mojito has been one of my favorites. The place is small, but the food was amazing. The service and ambience was amazing. Tried the mofongo and that was just like my mom used to cook. Also the Churrasco was amazing as well..... More

We loved this restaurant so much we went twice in our 5 day stay in Virginia Beach! The mojitos are fabulous. The food is perfection. Try the mofundo with shrimp, the cuban sandwich, or the chicken chimichurri. Everything I saw served looked delicious. If you are looking for truly authentic Cuban/Puerto Rican food, this is your place. The restaurant is... More

The Mojito Cafe is a small Puerto Rican, Cuban and Latin Restaurant where they prepare a menu of Latin favorites where the attention to detail allows them to create authentic, healthy and delicious foods. We were pleasantly surprised of the flavors and quality of each dish. They have a small dining room that seats 36 to 38 people. The open... More

This was hands down one of the best restaurants I've been to and I eat out a lot all over the world. I don't usually write reviews (unless I'm making a complaint), but the food at Mojito was so good it moved me to share it with the world. I would not miss a visit to Mojito if you are... More
