We went back after 13 months and it was better than ever. Great meal with the same super mixed share platter with Spanish/Lincolnshire fusion. Great selection of ice cold sherry & amazing Rioja (try the 2009 Gustsles, it will blow your mind). Tapas selection were fantastically cooked, seasonal and executed perfectly. Staff are very friendly and it's a brilliant atmosphere.... More

Wow - what a fantasic restaurant this is. Very authentic spanish tapas - the best that I have tasted outside of Spain. The leeks with cheese are excellent and the starter platter with it's home made bread is a starter to die for. The owners, Karl and Anne-Marie, are the friendliest and most attentive hosts. A first class restuarant well... More

What an absolute gem of a restaurant.Warm and authentic ambience with first class service and a relaxed and homely feel. The food was excellent (compliments to Carl the chef) and the house red went down a treat. Top this with the friendly and attentive service from Anne-Marie and her staff and you have a winning recipe. I definitely recommend and... More

What a great find! A wonderful local restaurant serving Spanish tapas using locally sourced ingredients - all freshly prepared by the talented Carl. Front of house can't be faulted - Annemarie gave us a great welcome and was very attentive throughout the evening. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Lincoln - wish I lived nearer!

A fantastic restaurant tucked away in the residential streets of Lincoln. Food and atmosphere was great. Really liked the mix of Spanish and local produce in the mixed starter. House white wine was lovely. Very friendly service. If I lived in Lincoln it would definitely be my restaurant of choice.

Big build up but found The Bowl Full remarkably ordinary. Lay out didn't flow that well. Also the food needed more seasoning.

Hidden away from the main streets of Lincoln, the bowl full is a place to discover. With genuinely friendly staff and a laid back interior, it provided a relaxing evening which is perfect for tapas. All of the food was well presented and nothing lacked flavour! I will defiantly be coming back

The hosts explained the Individual dishes which are all reasonably priced as are the wines and beers that are available. Would definately recommend this restaurant and will return within the near future to sample further dishes and wines. Thanks for... More
