Could be excellent

We have visited Mimosa on numerous occasions and only once received really poor service. The majority of the staff are well trained and only struggle when there are understaffed. Whether we dine as a family or as a couple we always enjoy our experience. The location is convenient and the layout and... read more

Mimosa is a very popular restaurant and bar on the Colchester business park. The food is good and reasonably priced with live entertainment at the weekends. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

I met a friend for an after work dinner, having eaten here and enjoyed the restaurant many times before. We caught up over delicious cocktails and had the lamb and tuna main courses. We were asked how we'd like them cooked and given the chef's recommendations which were spot on and we agreed with. The food was beautifully presented with... More

I celebrated my 40th here last night in the private area for 20 people. We had a set menu which we ordered in advance which really is the way to go with this many people. The food was all really good and the singer was brilliant. It's a place which is ideal for people wanting more than just a meal,... More

The place is fabulous in terms of decorations and atmosphere. But they need to take more care of the toilets. In weekends they have live music which was nice at all my visits. However, the quality and portions of the food does not match the high value! When I first went there last year the food was much better but... More

We should have complained at the time but because this was a family gathering and we were celebrating as guests on this occasion weI found it inappropriate to complain,... More

Poor service which is the norm was often overlooked because the food was good enough to forgive this failing. However, this last visit the food was also poor. After being shown to our table, staff left us for 30 mins before taking a drinks order despite repeated attempts to get their attention. Taking the food order took almost as long.... More
