Description: MimosA is a middle sized restaurant in the center of Rotterdam.The interior is stylish-modern but still warm and comfortable. The wide-open kitchen allows all to follow every move of the chefs and there is a fantastic terrace on the historical square at the back of the building (the "Nieuwe markt"). In this feelgood atmosphere, we serve classical-modern dishes, made from wonderful fresh and top class products from the best suppliers around.Perfect place to enjoy a high quality Lunch, (fast or complete) and a relaxed Dinner.Please check our website for more information.

“Fantastic Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2009

We found this place while strolling through blaak/Rot City center ans we had a fantastic experience.The waiter picked up that we were French and tried his best to describe the lunch menu in our language(succeeded perfectly!).Thats what we ordered and the menu was the following: Cucumber salad with makreel and scallops,fletan with risotto and poasched pear with yoghourt ice cream,waffles ice cream and pieces of waffles(the dutch delicacy with the siryp in the middle,for the life of me i cant remember how you call it.)It was well worth the 29 euros/menu and the staff is incredible,they also have an open kitchen so it is always reassuring (when youve never been to the place before.)
We tried to go back the next day for diner but it was fully booked! will definitely go back again and bring my colleagues and friends with me.

“Mimosa is a real gem in Rotterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2009

We stumbled upon Mimosa on the net, somehow. And what a find! A small and very unassuming restaurant in a city-edge location (walking distance from the central shopping area) offering a sparkling, innovative menu with emphasis on fresh ingredients and fabulous flavours.
The place is run by Mark and Aad (the M and A in MimosA); you'll see Mark at work in the kitchen if you sit in the southern half of the cosy space... Aad will greet you at the door and guide you through the menu which offers 5 of each starters, mains and desserts, or a set menu of 3 or four courses. We decided on the set menu... Luckily we weren't in a hurry: Aad works the floor alone and with a full house (20 covers) service wasn't fast (we were there for 4 1/2 hours) but it was attentive, personal and relaxed. We enjoyed all four courses and the relaxed pace meant we could comfortably fit in that 'extra course'.
Food presentation is beautiful: this is fine dining with no pretention whatsoever.
We would heartily recommend Mimosa. The restaurant is very clearly a labour of love of its two proprietors. We left with smiles on our faces and looking forward to returning one day soon.

“Fantastic Food, and Even Better Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

I stumbled upon this palce on a business trip. It has a relaxed atmosphere (but still quite clean and cutting edge design), relaxed dress code, and is mostly local. The food was outstanding and a great value, considering you are in one of Europe's larger cities!
