Mimosa was a huge fine dining hit! I was completely blown away by the really spectacular food! We arrived a little early and had drinks by the pool. Mimosa hosts a lovely four course menu which changes based on seasonality and availability promising everything is fresh and delicious! Whilst it was a wonderful dinner I did find it a little pricey at R450 per person before wine. Luckily it is actually six courses including a lovely amuse bouche and sorbet palate cleanser!
I was really impressed by the starter of seared tuna with a cabbagge and basil salad, aioli, fresh coriander, crispy leeks and teriyaki sauce. The slightly seared giant chunks of rich butter tuna were an absolute treat paired with the buttery cabbage. Before main course we enjoyed a lovely rooibos sorbet as an palate cleanser which prefectly prepared us for the highlight of the evening!
Main course was zebra fillet with pomme puree, seasoned vegetables and a black pepper and pecan nut cream sauce. I have never eaten zebra before and I was really impressed! The zebra fillet was a perfect medium rare served with a decadent rich pepper sauce. I would order this meal again in a heart beat! The zebra fillet was wonderfully tender and stands out as one of my favourite plates of food from our Roberston experience.
We finished off our gourmet dinner with chocolate tart and elderberry mousse topped with honey comb, vanilla foam and red wine syrup. The chocolate was truly decadent and I loved the elderberry mousse! This was the perfect sweet end to a really wonderful dinner!
