I found out about this little spot in the ocean front by reading a local news paper review when it first opened several years ago. Born and raised in PR, I take every opportunity to try new restaurants with island flavors. The article gave it great reviews and so to the oceanfront my husband and I went. Just as the... More

Charming small restaurant hiding next to the Subway shop. You have to look hard to see it. Worth it! We've eaten here twice and will go back again the next time we're in town. The sauteed shrimp are terrific, and this last time we both ate the churrasco con chimichuri which was unbelieveably delicious! Just discovered I'm in love with... More

We live in Va Beach so we are lucky we can go to Mojitos anytime. We've been going since they first opened many years ago. Edwin The Chef is awesome. We love all the great specials. You definitely want to keep coming back to see what is new on the menu. Of course the Mojitos are delish. We are excited... More

My husband and I visited here on our last night in Virginia Beach. We were looking for something different but really good (most of our food the prior week was kind of a let down). So I scoured Yelp and found this place. It's really easy to miss if you aren't looking for it- look for Subway and it's right... More

Amazing!! Had the steak, chicken and fish tacos. We orders and shared all dishes and also ordered the beef and cheese and olive empanadas. Worth the wait. We waited 1/2 hour to get in but worth every second. Place is small and hours are so obsolete but it's worth it!!!

I know that TA works by virtue of the quantity of reviews, and I hate to let out what seems to be a secret, but this place is wonderful. We were in VA beach for the Shamrock Marathon, and looking for an atypical place to grab some dinner. It's tiny, so it can get a bit loud, and you should... More

My wife and I had dinner and the food was great (and a good change from the many great seafood restaurants in Virginia Beach). Would return.

My wife goggled restaurants near Atlantic Av while staying in town for a Cheer competition 3/12, 3/13. My wife know that I do not like chain restaurants as they don't offer a new experience. This restaurant actually shares a building with a Subway's sandwich shop. I was not very excited by the looks from the exterior of the restaurant, however... More

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We got there early and was seated right away. The café is small and filled up very quickly. We tried one of the appetizer special of conch fritters. They were delicious. My husband had the Mahi fish tacos and he just raved about it. I had the Ropa vieja sandwich on Cuban... More
