The restaurant is set in a great location and has a nice atmosphere. However the portions are small, the food is average and the prices are very high for what it is.

Particularly in Summer, La Mimosa is a dreamy spot. The river on one side, Jesus Green on the other, it’s gently buzzing with happy customers and glorious, inexpensive Italian food. Don’t miss it.
