This Tapas Bar is probably the best of its kind in Ireland. Food and ambience are amazing! Layout and decor is top class and you immediately get that holiday feeling when you enter the bar! Service is excellent and staff are friendly! A must do if you live or are visiting Carlow.

While visiting Carlow town on a Sunday evening last month, I had researched Mimosa beforehand and was delighted to prove that the restaurant matched the positive reviews it had already gained. It was clearly a favourite among the locals also as it was buzzing all evening with happy customers. Although there was one or two items not available, everything that... More

Walk through the door of Mimisa to enter a stunning restaurant of intimate spaces which create a beautiful dining experience. The tapas are to die for and the staff are always welcoming.

Excellent - very, very tasty food. I went for chicken liver pate (comes with toast), crabmeat arancini (comes with a bit of salad) and the old classic, patatas bravas, all washed down with a bottle of the local CURIM beer. Service is efficient and pleasant. The venue is deceptively large, with a covered area at the back for smokers, as... More

Waited over an hour for a table as you cannot book -arrived around 9.20 and we were seated. Ordered 2 tapas to start with - in the meantime another couple arrived in and were given a bread bowl to nibble on while waiting on their food, we got nothing like that and were starving! Food took half an hour to... More

Love the food here I've been several times and it never disappoints however it is busy so I do recommend you book ahead of time. Great atmosphere and decor throughout, if a tad expensive. Definitely recommend it

Came on a Sunday evening and enjoyed a very nice glass of malbec and some tasty tapas. Place was busy and a great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly, slight negative was that 2 of the dishes my husband wanted had sold out- always better to say that at the beginning to save disappointment. Would def return though.
