Food is so tasty and flavoursome, and atmosphere is very relaxing. Makes you feel like you're away on hols. Staff are very attentive and friendly, but not intrusive.

One of the most delicious menus around! It is very tough to decide on what to have as it is all fantastic!

This was our second visit to Mimosa and again we were not disappointed. In the days leading up to our visit we had to change the numbers on the booking a couple of times and it was all done with no hassle.
The food was amazing and came to the table at a reasonable pace so you did not feel rushed when you were eating.
The staff were happy and very helpful and adhered to social distancing practices where necessary.
We had a child in our group and she was well looked after.
We cannot recommend Mimosa highly enough and we will certainly be back.

Our food took forever to come out and then we were rushed at end i understand with civid etc but its not our fault food took iver hour to come out.
We were asked and reminded three times to leave which is fair enough but not when are money is still sitting on the tray waiting for a server to take and give us change.
Also the menu has gone downhill bit half as much choice as there used to be. I'd seriously consider one of the other tapas places in carlow now. Mimosa used to be the best now average is being nice about it. A disappointed regular this time

Great food great service. Early bird 1 euro off each dish was unexpected but welcomed.
Staff were great.
One suggestion would be when there are groups there to slightly lower the music. It seems the talking from these tables were louder to try and speak over the music at times.

Mimosa is a beautiful Restaurant , their food is well presented and good quality. On this occasion I felt there was less choice but maybe that’s due to the current pandemic restrictions but what we ordered and received was delicious ,
Service was excellent and timely
This is a little gem of a restaurant
