We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table and the aromas from the kitchen were sooo enticing. Empanadas were excellent, especially the cheese & olive. I have the grilled fish, my husband had the pork, both very good. It was hard to choose from the desserts, but we did. The flan & cinamon bread pudding both delicious. Don't... More

Mojitos is a little hidden secret in VA. Beach. No advertising, all done by word of mouth. I didn't want to spread the word either. The wait can get really bad, but definitely worth the wait if you want great food. The waitresses are awesome. Go there at leat twice one my vacation. You can never go wrong.

A small and nice restaurant, very good atmosphere and friendly staff. A small gem hidden behind the others restaurants. Try this if you get a chance. Don't think you will be disappointed.

Ate here on a Friday night around 8pm. Place was packed- good sign of a great place. Sat at the bar and were quickly served excellent mojitos by Phill. Mahi tacos were great as well as the chimichuro chicken-the sauce was delish. Topped it off with deep fried banana caramel cheesecake. The staff were very friendly, place was clean. Beats... More

Came here the first night we arrived in Virginia Beach and we loved the food! I had the ropa vieja and my husband had the flank steak - both were so delicious; they exceeded our expectations! The mojitos were great as well - very similar to authentic ones you get in Cuba. We topped dinner off with the bread pudding... More

This was the best restaurant I ate at during the 4 days I spent in VA beach. The mojitos were phenomenal and fresh, but you would expect that from the name. However, all of the food was absolutely delicious!

The food and mojitos were both excellent. The place is very small so get there early. They have a nice selection and food is very fresh. The cafe is clean and service is friendly and attentive. Don't pass this one by its well worth it. Atmosphere is casual. If it were larger and less casual would've been 5 star review.... More

We have been to Virginia Beach four times and this is the only restaurant that we like. Everything else is tourist food. We eat here multiple times on our trips. Small seating area so there could be a wait, but it's a wait that is worth it. Delicious food, friendly servers, and great mojitos!

My husband and I heard this was a good place. It's very small so we had to wait awhile but it was worth it. We both loved our meals and highly recommend it. The combination of flavors in the dishes made them so tasty.

Lucked out and got a table without waiting on a Saturday night. My wife had the shrimp and I had the pulled pork, both were excellent. The cracked olive appetizer was also very good. For dessert the flan and the fried cheesecake with caramel made the evening a total success. We will be back before we leave this week.

Thank Tranquility-Bill
