“Great family run, riverside Italian restaurant & Pizzeria in Cambridge”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We have had the pleasure of dining in La Mimosa for a number of years now, and it is still one of the best dining experiences to be had in Cambridge. Located on the riverbank, with both indoor outdoor seating, wonderful on those warm summer evenings. We were lucky enough to be able to spend another New Years Eve here at the end of 2013 with group of friends. The welcome is second to none, the service is always friendly with just the right amount of contact during meals. The food is freshly cooked and always a joy to eat. La Mimosa is a great place to go for those special family occasions, intimate dinner for two, or for a nice Sunday, or evening meal.

“A Real Family Atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

This place has atmosphere the moment you arrive. Theres no fast turnaround feel when you enter. The staff are very friendly, and you can tell there are repeat customers chatting to the owners like long lost friends. The food was hot and the fillet was tender with no fat. Service was pitched right and you felt nothing was too much trouble. Will certainly be returning to this little gem off the main streets.

“Very delicious food and fantastic service for a Christmas party of 35”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

We chose to hold our works Christmas lunch at La Mimosa this year and we were not disappointed. The quality of the food was very high and each course was delicious. It is always hard to please everyone in a large group of people but everyone has given me very positive feedback so far! No matter how good the restaurant is for a small group of people it is often hard to cater for large groups, but La Mimosa did an exceptional job of catering to our group of 35. All meals were brought out very promptly and no one was left waiting for a course. It all seemed to run effortlessly and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was a great setting and the prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend La Mimosa to anyone based on our experience and people have already requested we go back there for our works Christmas lunch next year! Very happy customer!

“Gread Christmas dinner”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I organized our work Christmas dinner and, as I was new to town, asked around for suggestions, at the end we decided on "la Mimosa".
It is one of the best Christmas dinners I had (although my experience is rather limited, as I live in the UK only since 2009), my colleagues, all 25 of them, where also very favorably impressed.
Very nice food, nice wine, friendly staff.

PS:I would like to go back on my own or with a much smaller group to sample the restaurant in it's more normal settings, as Christmas dinners are always a bit peculiar, and usually they don't reflect at best the potential of the restaurant, so I'm very curious.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

My husband I dined here recently on a Saturday evening and were very impressed. The service was superb. Our food was delicious, particularly the black pudding starter, hake main course and spinach and ricotta ravioli . Thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back again.
