Description: This famous tropical Cuban/International restaurant and cocktail bar is popular with travelers and locals alike. Sip on a rum-soaked Mojito, order a traditional Cuban sandwich and while away the day, watching the colorful chaos that is Long Street.Established in 2003, Cafe Mojito is a friendly, reliable spot that serves up some of the tastiest burgers in the city. Open for lunch and dinner. The menu offers burgers, nachos, salads and a great Tapas selection for the not-so-hungry. Cocktail Happy Hour runs from 5pm -7pm and from 11pm till midnight - Monday to Sunday.

“Nothing to complain about.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

It's very seldom, one comes across a place where everything is simply lovely. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is scrumptious and dripping with flavour. The cocktails are orgasmic and will make your knees weak. Whether it’s storming or the most beautiful day Cape Town can produce, this place is perfect for both occasions. It’s perfect for students, friends having a night out; or a couple having a relaxing date. Day or night, I love this place. And there’s a weekly happy hour that starts at 5:00pm, what more could one need?

“Cool place for drinks 'n eats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Cafe Mojito also has a great vibe - a fun relaxing setting & atmosphere to chill in. Perfect spot to start a night trippin' down Long Street, and then also to end the night. ... or..... even to spend the night at.

“Terrible mojitos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

You'd think that mojitos would be the signature drink but both mine and my wifes were really bad. Inside looked cool and great spot for people watching on long but drinks left a lot to be desired.

“Vibey music and decent drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Given, it might have been one of the hottest January days this year, it was actually not cooler inside the Cafe than out. Luckily the menu was interesting enough to distract me from that fact, but the spelling mistakes on the menu did make me giggle. Really vibey music, friendly service and decent drinks. I think it was the big colourful sign on the sidewalk that ushered me in.
