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

I booked a party of 16 people for a special occasion as a tapas place in town was full and I had heard good reports. I was not disappointed. We got the set menu at £15 per person and there was so many delicious dishes served. The owners were friendly and very accommodating especially as we had a few coeliacs... More

Living in the area for years I had visited this little restaurant frequently and enjoyed the menu, but after moving away I had not been for a long time. I had heard a former work colleague had taken it on as a Tapas bar, so we organised a retirement do for one of our friends at work. What can I... More

We had a really lovely time at The Bowl Full Tapas Bar. The food was excellent and very good value. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Karl and Annemarie. It was nice to see fresh anchovies on the menu and I hope that Karl will take on my suggestion of serving them with condensed milk. “Anchoas con leche... More

The service and speed at which the food arrived was spot on, and we didn't feel rushed. All the dishes we delicious and I'm looking forward... More

It was the best food I've had in years. We started out with a cheese and meat platter for 2 (there where 3 of us) and that was amazing to see all the different meats and cheeses for Spain. Then we just ordered some food and shared it amongst ourselves and everything was cooked to perfection. The chorizo wasn't chewy... More
