The quality of the food balanced against the long wait due to popularity - we really enjoyed the meal. We waited over an hour - it seemed that tables ahead of us lingered and lingered. Maybe it was because the beer selection was really good (I had a great Brazilian beer), as were the mojitos. They have a nice porch... More

We lived across the street from the cafe, so it was a natural choice for us to have a meal there. We first came in early (5:30 pm) when only one table was occupied and asked to make a reservation for 6:30. They don't make any reservations. So, we came at 6:10 and the place was already full and people... More

I visited based on Trip Advisor reviews and was so disappointed. The tall blonde waitress was indifferent and her attitude was on the verge of rude. I asked for a drink with not too much I've and you'd think I'd asked her to walk to the moon, such was the inconvenience of not using as much ice in my drink.... More

My husband and I vacation in VA Beach nearly every year. We love Mojito - but have to gear ourselves up mentally. It's TINY - seven tables and a small counter for a bar. It's in a former tiny beach cottage. That said, they have an ample outdoor porch with seating for those who are willing to wait often an... More

We arrived about 15 minutes after they opened for dinner, and were told it would be a 45 minute wait, but since it was early we decided to wait on the little deck shared with the Subway next door. No drinks on the deck, so after a while we moved inside so we could have a beverage while we waited.... More

We were staying two blocks from Mojito and love going where the locals go. This little place (8 tables, 6 bar stools) is worth the wait. We waited an hour. It appeared that there were two people working the front of the house/making Mojitos and a couple of cooks. They have a small menu, but it packs a punch. The... More

We had dinner here after researching restaurants in the area. The food was amazing and the mojitos were the best we've ever had! I had Ropa vieja for dinner and we had a delicious dessert, I think it was bread pudding but they all sounded so good. The rest of the trip, we did not find another place that even... More
