Got take away tapas from Mimosa this week end.Safe service adhering to Covid Guidelines. Delicious food without the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant. Look forward to going back when restrictions are lifted.

Delighted to get a table here before the Covid restrictions closed it again. The ambience was lovely, staff were friendly and the food was delicious. We shared a starter and dessert and picked 3 tapas each. My highlights were the sizzling garlic king prawns and...the baked alaska dessert - compliments to the chef. A fabulous meal - I'll definitely be back when you're open again. Thank you.More

We were staying in Carlow in September passed and we were so dissapointed with the catering in house that we decided to search local eateries in Carlow. We were so glad we did, from the time we stepped foot in this small, character filled tapas...bar, we were in awe. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing and we had a great time relaxing with good food, good wine and great people. We cannot wait to visit again. This place is a gem! Well done to the owners and staff, they really do take care of you from the minute you arrive.More

All of my family enjoyed the food no complaints. I am gf and there was not enough choice on the menu. I came out still hungry. The sangria was lovely but couldn't justify going here just for this. I was very disappointed.

We went back to Mimosa early July shortly after they re-opened & weren't disappointed. The food & service was amazing as always. Love the setting too with soft lighting & private tables with lots of space. Some of the highlights were the caramelized goats cheese,...Miso glazed chicken, garlic prawns & baked Alaska (see pics). Also loved the cocktails! Felt very safe there in relation to COVID - all protocols being followed. Bonus in these times is they are now taking bookings for < 6 people : ) Highly recommend & will be back.More

I really can't believe I've lived in Carlow for this long and not visited Mimosa. I went here on a date with my boyfriend and the two of us enjoyed every minute of it. The food was excellent and very high quality. We had the...early bird and for the two of us in total came to 40 euro - surprisingly cheap, I've had much worse meals in Carlow town for a lot more money. The decor and ambiance were absolutely lovely and made for a really romantic setting. We will definitely be back to try more cocktails and more food on the menu! Also, the garden area looked absolutely lovely but didn't get to sit out since it was very stormy - would love to try this area before the summer is out!More

It's not often that a restaurant ticks all the boxes, however Mimosa has achieved it. Their dining areas are beautifully decorated with cosy nooks and soft lighting. Their patio & garden are also a perfect setting for your dining experience. Their menu is Tapas inspired...with some creative Asian and other cuisine infusions. We ordered 7 different dishes, each one presented impeccably and all were delicious. Our Portugese server Elder was very friendly, efficient & attentive. He's a great ambassador for Mimosa's business. I would encourage the owners to have one or two draft beers available, perhaps one Spanish brand. We look forward to enjoying Mimosa again very soon.More

Amazing place. In Carlow twice a year and the only place we go. Unfortunately tonight while waiting for our change after paying for the bill. We were told we had been there 1 hr 56 mins as our change was being placed on the table....I understand it tough times at the minute but a little cop on goes a long way.More

We dined here last night and we really enjoyed it. Staff were very attentive but not intrusive. We ordered 7 different dishes and each was delicious. When the first dish came out I thought had we ordered enough but by number 5 we were absolutely...stuffed. It was great to see so many veggie options. The price was great for everything we ordered including a cocktail and wine. We both agreed we would love to go back.More
