    Staff were lovely. Attentive yet respectful. We had 5 dishes and desert. 2 dishes weren't great, the chicken wings and pulled pork. The chicken wings were over cooked. The hot sauce should come with a heat warning. The pulled pork was a cubed effect and was a bit chewy. We would go back and choose to have different dishes

    Absolutely fabulous but one small thing that annoyed us was once we had our desserts serviced and not fully eaten, the bill was being dropped down because the table was needed again. We had only been there an hour and a quarter. Not only was the bill dropped but the server immediately returned with the card machine and I was still eating. We were going to have coffees and another glass of wine after desserts but I felt it was presumed we were finished when we didn’t get coffee WITH dessert. We still enjoyed our visit and food was incredible but that just the whole thing fine slightly and I was actually disappointed with/for Mimosa. I just love the place so much and that was the lasting memory

    Another beautiful dining experience. Mimosa continually makes improvements to all aspects of their customer experience. From portion sizes, food & wine choice, service & ambience I honestly couldn’t fault anything. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique & enjoyable dining experience in Carlow.

    First time in mimosa last night but should have been going for years as it was way more than I had expected. Firstly the way the restaurant was designed and fitted gave a quirky,rustic and antique feel with the split levels and dark lighting. Lots of wood beams and candles. Ambience was the one of the best if not the best I've experienced in a restaurant in Ireland. Had a brief look outside and it actually surpassed the enterior with how it's set. Outside on a summers evening would be a memorable experience. 10/10 for the bricks and mortar part but the cherry on the tip was the food. Every dish I ordered and I ordered lots was just amazing and could not be faulted in any way. I am already planning many more visits in the coming months as it was an amazing package of food and setting. One of Irelands best restaurants in my opinion and must be experienced.
