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

Food fantastic but the constant bombardment of a second waiter coming over 4 times for absolutely no reason apart from recommending going outside. Even though we were still eating.

My fiancé describe his food as an 11/10! Couldn’t fault anything bar maybe the length in between dishes as we couldn’t figure out the system but in a way added to the tapas experience. Food was spectacular we can’t recommend enough . Even better were the extremely helpful and chatty staff and the ambience created! Not to mention the value for money . Have already recommended to friends and family ... we will definitely be back !
