Expert review of Mimosa Kitchen & Bar

Wales meets South America in the heart of the bay.

There are very few restaurants in Cardiff who excel at breakfast just as well as they do at night. So depending on the time of day, your meal will either be reasonable or quite expensive. Don’t worry, though, their kitchen creations are worth every penny.

Food and drink: 

Mimosa is a cool celebration of Wales’s Patagonian connection so expect to see both larver bread and prime steak. The menu fits any time of day, too. Breakfast or hearty sandwiches are on offer next to some great contemporary mains and well thought sides. Their wine list isn’t shy, either.

Recommended dishes: 

Mimosa seem to know their steaks and cook them well. They’re not over priced either. Their home made tzatziki and cheesy leeks are both rather wise choices too. As are their burgers for that matter, they’re cooked with the same care and attention as the steaks.

Ambience: 

You can expect a cool cafe bar vibe during the day and really vibrant, chatty atmosphere at night. Great for groups large or small, the night lighting is set at the perfect level.

Service: 

Friendly and attentive, they’re always quick off the mark too. Great news if you arrive hungry!

Location: 

Cardiff Bay; the most beautiful part of the city. It’s not one of the lucky restaurants to offer the sea view but it’s still close by for a pleasant post meal sojourn.

Price advice: 

Breakfast, sandwiches and burgers are reasonably priced. The mains require at least one side (either a potato or veg based) so you’re looking at over £20 for your main meal on most occasions.
