La Mimosa posted on 1 May 2017

From the moment La Mimosa first opened its doors to the public it was clear to anyone who visited, that this was a special restaurant, situated in an ideal location. Nestling on the banks of the River Cam, this traditional family run Italian restaurant is just a short walk along the Quayside boardwalk, between Magdalene Street and Jesus Green.

La Mimosa occupies one of the best riverside restaurant locations in Cambridge, the perfect choice for a coffee, a light lunch or an evening meal.

Service takes place inside in their stylish restaurant or outside on their large riverside terrace, where you can sit back and enjoy the relaxing sights and sounds of the river.

Unlike many restaurants in Cambridge, La Mimosa is not part of a restaurant chain, having been owned and run by the Benedetto family for many years.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you realise that every aspect of your dining experience is offered with a personalised touch that people appreciate, making La Mimosa a firm favourite on the Cambridge restaurant scene.  You will most likely be welcomed at the door by the restaurant owner Don Benedetto, who is a familiar and friendly face to anyone who has dined at La Mimosa.

The menu offers a true taste of traditional Italian food, made with fresh and healthy ingredients, expertly cooked by their experienced chefs.

In addition to their regular menu, a new starter and main course specials menu is available every day – with a wonderful selection of classic Italian dishes to choose from.



One of La Mimosa’s not so hidden secrets is their extensive eight page fine wine list - one of the most comprehensive in Cambridge. And with all their wines perfectly suited to complement your meal, you’ll be able to enjoy the true taste of Italy, just ask Don or any of their staff members and they will be more than happy to pair your meal with a suitable bottle.

The clientele that visit La Mimosa varies throughout the week - whether you're looking for a romantic meal for two at a quiet table, or a friendly and lively venue to celebrate with family and friends, you'll find La Mimosa is one of the most accommodating restaurants in the city, to enquire about table bookings or special occasions, just give Don a call and he can talk you through his availability.

Luxury Flats Available to rent at La Mimosa

La Mimosa is now offering luxury accommodation for rent - situated above the restaurant are three luxury flats, over looking Jesus Green that have recently been renovated and given a superb new look. The Flats are available for working professionals only and include all the amenities that you’d expect. If you’re interested in arranging a viewing, just call Don Benedetto on 01223 362 525.
