good Puertorican place to eat
Best place to eat in all of Virginia Beach!!! Food was phenomenal. Mojitos best I have ever had. Can not say enough about how good this restaurant is!
Had dinner here while visiting for a conference. Ordered the fish tacos and that day the fish was mahi. Good sized portion and very tasty. Mojitos are HUGE and kind of deadly for a lightweight like myself :) Also ordered the pumpkin muffin cinnamon bun bread pudding - oh man, DO IT! I've had some pretty underwhelming bread puddings but this one did not disappoint. Service was great. It is a pretty small place so plan accordingly.
Hometown Hotspot. I am Virginia Beach born and bred and Mojito Cafe has such a special place in my heart. My boyfriend and I visited last month as a part of our anniversary celebration. I planned it and I was sooo glad Mojito Cafe was open. In years past they operated on a seasonal schedule so we didn’t always catch them when we would visit. So this trip was very nostalgic and sentimental. Cons: -This establishment is very small. Even before COVID seating was a little bit of a challenge (but it’s worth the wait). Because its was the end of January we ended up waiting at the Subway next door until we could be seated as it was cold and snowy outside. Although they don’t do reservations calling ahead is definitely recommended -My pernil from my entree was overly salted. It wasn’t unbearable but the balance with the rice and green beans were great -I love empanadas and the beef empanada was perfect. However, the other two pictured were in a flaky pastry crust and it made the chorizo dry and hard to taste. I’m not sure if they ran out of the traditional empanada pastry (we were the last party seated for the evening) or if that’s the option for the chorizo selection Pros: -COVID protocols were easily observant and due to the restaurants size you can easily see the chefs preparing your food -Obviously you have to get a mojito. They’re delicious!! -VALUE!Portion sizes are always plentiful and I’ve never left this place disappointed or without leftovers -This was my first time having the maduro pork bites and they were the perfect combination of savory and sweet. The red chimichurri sauce was my personal favorite -TASTE! Their sandwiches, vegetables, sides are all great. The only thing I can’t speak to is dessert because I’m usually full before I can order any. This small business is such a treat and I promise you won’t regret it!
Great atmosphere, loved the food! Definitely one of those cool, unassuming local places you can stop by at to get good PR/Cuban food!
