First time in Carlow since childhood, but ate here twice in 4 days as it has a great atmosphere and service and the food is exceptional. Best tapas I've had ever. Well worth a visit!

Went here on a business dinner with colleagues. The menu covers all bases and is tasty. Service is slick and professional. Oh and it is extremely popular with the folks there in Carlow. If your in town head for the tapas bar. I like spicy food and the hot wings were just that. Will be back next time I'm in... More

My husband and I have visited this restaurant twice. It's fabulous with wonderful staff to make your stay enjoyable. The food was amazing which leads to ordering too much. I have a gluten and wheat allergy and they have a fantastic selection. Highly recommended.

Food and service always excellent but can't be sure of getting a table and can't book. Favourite place to eat in Carlow.

I also say this place reminds me of our holidays. Its an escape. One of my firm favorites. Its quirky and has a great atmosphere. Food is always good. I love the lamb tangine, kangaroo and the monkfish. Its always busy and I hestitated in reviewing, for fear I spread the word further 😉.

Wherever you are staying in Ireland, this is a detour you must make. The food here is an absolute treat. The tapas servings are very generous and incredibly tasty. We didn't have to wait long between dishes and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and it is very comfortable and relaxing inside. One of the highlights... More

I have visited this restaurant numerous times and I can say it's the best in Carlow if you are planning a group dinner party. It is so well priced and you can't go wrong if you are looking for a +6 table, it's around 15€ pp! On the other hand if you are going as a couple or small group... More

I like Mimosa a lot as does my partner however not been able to book because we are just 2 people is bordering on discrimination. Our average spend is 80-100 euro including a bottle of wine and maybe a cocktail over an hour and a half. Mimosa has built a reputation, that is fair enough however when I come down... More
