Our family ate dinner here along with 2 other families . It was a warm day in mid-July and we were seated outside where we could view the activity along the river. Was a good meal and the service was good but a little slow .. could have been due to our large group.

I visited on a weekday evening with a group of colleagues. Arriving at about 6:30 the restaurant was fairly empty but our table was ready. The waitress was friendly throughout and took our drinks order while waiting for the rest of the group to arrive. The food was ok, neither bad nor outstanding. Perhaps slightly pricey for what you get.

Walked into this place on my way back to my hotel after a lovely day in Cambridge. The whole atmosphere and location of the place put me in a great mood. Sitting by the river eating the best steak I've eaten in a long time, sipping a cool white wine watching punters on the river. Can't beat it. Service was... More

I visited this restaurant today and was shown to our table. We placed an order for drinks and starters. We didn't want a full meal because we were about to go punting in 30 mins time. The restaurant was not very busy and there were a number of tables outside where we were sitting and nearly all the tables inside... More

I have been here several times and the staff are always very welcoming. The menu is standard Italian and well cooked and presented. There is an outside area for warm evenings!

Excellent place for a nice al fresco friendly dinner near river Cam. The service was excellent and family style. We had a simple dinner pizza and salad and found it delicious. The pizza was superb and juicy. The Italian service is very nice and friendly. I really appreciated not being push for drinks, since I was driving this was very... More

Booked a punting tour for 1:00 on a Saturday and they were running half an hour behind schedule so we thought we'd pop into La Mimosa for a quick drink, look at the menu and go back for lunch after our punting tour. The door had a sign which read: "Fully booked unless you order food." We had to knock... More

I have been here about three times and hadn't written a review as I had no really great to say about this restaurant or nothing really bad. The family that run this restaurant are good at ensuring the customer is happy, even when the old man delivers the drinks to the wrong table twice!! The food is well cooked Italian... More

Lovely view, lovely pizza but they are reluctant to let people go back to use the loo, don't offer drinks only! Considering their location they are missing a trick #coulddobetter
