Salads were excellent and tacos and other Mexican foods tried by our party were equally great. Counter service but staff were very polite and friendly. We felt like something healthy to eat and Mosquito Cafe didn't disappoint!!

Their salads are huge and fresh. Their hot food is delicious. It's a nice place. It's not cheap or fast. I've eaten there so many times--their steak sandwich is my favorite. Right across the street there's a quaint bakery with pastries, cookies, and other desserts. There's patio seating which I avoid when it's hot because of flies.

All items were prepared quickly and well. Preparations were mostly simple but everything was very fresh and flavorful. Portions were just the right size and prices were appropriate. The only thing I was underwhelmed by was the chocolate cake I had for dessert which was very sweet and not very chocolatey.

My wife and I were in Houston and decided to go to Galveston. We ate dinner and both had a great meal. The atmosphere is comfortable welcoming. We choose fish tacos which were excellent with a small side of beans and rice. We took some chocolate toffee cookies for the ride back to Houston. Yum.

This is the place to go when you are looking for a pleasant lunch in a peaceful environment. The staff was very down to earth and funny. It's all casual here, walk in, speak with the host or grab the menu, order up front, take a number and find some seating. The food was so good and fresh. I ordered... More
