We had dinner one night and lunch a couple of days later - wonderful food, great vibe, excellent mojito's (my fave was the spicey mojito) and friendly & accommodating for the baby in our party. We can especially recommend the chorizo empanadas, the fish tacos, the Cubano sandwich and the steak entree but it's all great food. The restaurant is... More

,Great dinner, wonderful service; Restaurant is right next door to LaQuinta; Restaurant is small, but they say great things come in small packages! During the week, theyre open only 4 hours, but getting there is well worth it! For appetizers, we had cracked olive plate ( so good, we got a second order to go), accompanied by conch filled hush...

This is a very small establishment but they serve fantastic food! Parking is on the street. There are only about 8 tables in the place but turnover is fairly quick.

We came in about 20 minutes after it opened and it was already crowded, it is very small place. We were sat at the bar, it's small too (about 6 seats). Friendly staff. It was hot outside and we ordered drinks right away. I had a pineapple fruity drink, I should have ordered water first. Due to my thirst, I... More

This restaurant was close to the hotel that we stayed (La Quinta) and came highly recommended. Mojitos did not disappoint. I had its Paella, my wife - garlic shrimp w/ rice and black beans and our daughter tried its steak w/ rice and beans. These dishes were as good and definitely on par with regular and spicey mojito drinks served... More

This restaurant is one of our family favorites. We go in every time we are at Virginia Beach (which is almost every year). The food is very good same as the desserts. The restaurant is no cheap by all means. but the food is worthy. The bad thing about this restaurant is that they don't take reservations and they are... More

Have been here for lunch two summers in a row, while vacationing on the beach. Was very satisfied both times. It's small, and everything appears to be made to order, so it is not "fast" food. But the cuban sandwiches were awesome and they make a mean Mojito...

While on vacation in Virginia Beach, we were looking for a place for dinner one night and found reviews on Tripadvisor for Mojito's Cafe. We thought we'd give it a try. The restaurant is fairly small, with an outdoor patio and a small indoor area. We had to wait a half hour to get a spot at the bar because... More

Searching for a restaurant that wasn't the usual beach variety, we found Mojito Cafe in our GPS as trudging down the boardwalk. We arrived to discover a busy tratoria with about 10 tables and a bar, but a sizeable wait at 8:30 and they closed at 9. We overheard the hostess asking if folks wanted to sit at the bar,... More

Ah Mojito Cafe... I do feel this could genuinely be the only good restaurant on the strip lol. Okay so the first thing you notice when you arrive is just how tiny this place is, and although they do have parking expect that to fill up fast as well. We were lucky in that we got both a parking space,... More
