Good food as always. Servers were lovely but the timing between plates was very slow. First person had both tapas eaten 15 minutes before the food arrived for second person. Otherwise all was good.

Everything was lovely except for where our table was. We were stuck in the corner in the Residence bar with both of us looking at a wall which was not at all enjoyable and took from the whole atmosphere. I understand that the restaurant had to maintain social distancing of tables but I think using this awkward space felt squashed and confined.

The food and service was excellent. The restaurant has really adhered to public health guidelines and while the experience is somewhat different, the atmosphere is still lovely. It felt very relaxed and we really enjoyed our first night out since the lockdown.

Our first trip to Mimosa as a regular customer after lockdown . We were excited as ever and it lived up to its usual reputation of finest food, super staff, relaxing and most of all no loss of atmosphere . I was trilled as it’s our favourite place to eat and looking forward to our next visit already .
