You can tell a really excellent restaurant by their business in the off season. On a Wednesday in early December this establishment was full. I can see why. 1.The mojitos are huge. Not too sweet just right. 2. The conch fritters were phenomenal. As good as we have ever had. 3. The Cubano sandwich was the BEST we have ever... More

Almost hidden next to the Subway, this little cafe serves up delicious ethnic food. My half Cuban son-in-law who is a Cuban foodie raved about the flan. The skirt steak and shrimp were excellent. I ate mofongo for the first time and really like this mashed green plantain dish which reminds me of mashed potatoes with a crunch. The prices... More

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.
