We were staying across the street from this place and wanted somewhere close to go, there was a Christmas parade going on and traffic was crazy. This is a small location, but the staff was great and the food terrific! I got the flatbread and fried plantains. Yum and yum. Definitely worth the stop and the wait, which for me... More

This is one of my absolute favs!! The food is delicious and the staff are wonderful. If you are in the VA Beach area you don't want to miss this place. I highly recommend anything on the menu but definitely try a fresh mojito!

Tiny little place with a wait, even off season. Delicious, fresh food, nicely seasoned. Reasonable prices matched portions and quality. Christina was a great server, warm and welcoming. Christina made our group of school nurses feel like celebrities.

Slow paced, but everything is fresh and most appeared to be from scratch or at least made to order. From appetizers to the desert, all was wonderfull. Menu is on the small size, but from south america. A wonderful change of what I would call, normal food.

Was craving Spanish food while in Virginia Beach and Mojito Café was recommended to me. I ordered the steak with rice and beans to go and it was delicious. I arrived early because I heard it was a small place and could get crowded and run out of popular food selections. I was not disappointed. The food was very tasty... More

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
