Love this place! First visit on Friday and certainly won't be the last. Great selection on the menu and everything hinge we had was delicious!! Service was second to none, really attentive staff without being in your face! Very generous portions for tapas , certainly had an "eyes bigger than belly" moment!

We arrived to find a small restaurant in the middle of residential housing on the outskirts of the city centre. I had read good reviews and have been waiting to try the place for a while, and we were not disappointed. Even though it is a small restaurant it did not feel claustrophobic and even a party of 10+ next... More

We have been meaning to go here for a while- and so pleased we made it. Service was excellent and food choices blew us away, in the end we let the chef choose. Great bubbles too. Will definitely be going again- very very soon. Thankyou Annmarie and Karl for a fabulous evening x

We started with the mixed sharing platter, which is a great mix of speciality Spanish ingredients and lincolnshire specialities. We then had around 6 of the tapas plates, particularly good were the lincolnshire... More

Unlike certain tapas chains this had a smaller but more unusual choice of dishes all... More

We had a brilliant time at the Bowl Full. The food was amazing and great value. There is a wide variety of tapas on the menu. The staff are friendly and the service was excellent. Highly recommended. The Bowl Full is definitely the best tapas bar in Lincoln. Highly recommended.

Ate here tonight, party of 10. We had an early booking and the rest of the restaurant filled up really quickly, but our food, from the set menu, arrived very promptly & without exception, every item was hot, well cooked & flavoursome. The service was excellent, really friendly but never intrusive. Was expecting a lot from the place after reading... More

Went to this little place with friends on a recommendation and was not disappointed. Great food, great service and great choice. Like a little bit of Spain in the East Midlands. Well done guys
