We had booked ahead for dinner on a Wednesday evening this summer and were lucky with the weather - the nice waiter allocated us a table outside right next to the walkway along the river Cam; which was an extra bonus with the yummy food (though the tiramisu is nothing for the faint-hearted :))

I was working at a wedding and had not had any food by 10.30pm. My wife who had accompanied me found the restaurant during the day and said looked good. We went there at 10.30pm for a takeaway and she was told" if we can be back in 20 mins, we will hold the kitchen open for you!!" We did make it back. The staff were wonderful, the atmosphere great, the food delicious and all washed down with a bottle of good wine. Thoroughly recommended and will certainly go again when I am next in Cambridge.

Had a meal here earlier this week with work colleagues (9 of us).
Decided to try one of the specials and really glad I did.

Cannot comment on the value - company paid :-) - but nobody complained.
Would happily return

Just had lunch there, thought it would be a good day to try it out sitting on the terrace overlooking the river, Expectations weren't high based on the menu being very limited( pizza or pizza ).Tried to break the pizza habit and ordered the honey chicken salad.It was inedible , the chicken was soggy , smothered in a guey mess of a dressing , there was about 2 inches of oil and mess in the bottom of the bowl , and what appeared to be tinned peppers mixed up with a very poorly presented .Added a garlic bread order , that was cold and didn't taste even of garlic (difficult to get garlic bread wrong !).
Such a shame , its one of the best locations in Cambridge, but clearly caters to the tourist who is not expected to return.Leaving over half of my meal ( my wife did the same) at no time did the staff actually ask if the food was OK , probabaly as they knew the answer in advance !

La Mimosa has a great location, so it's a shame that the pizzi are pretty disappointing. Large, bready crusts and not particularly generous toppings. Service was good without being great - not likely to return, despite wanting to support a local business. Much as I hate to admit it, Pizza Express just does it better.
