We live in town and love this restaurant. We had our anniversary dinner here and the food was superb as it always is.

I love to visit the Gypse Café after a great day of skiing with friends and family. A warm, relaxed atmosphere featuring incredible food and great wait staff. The menu for lunch or dinner offers a great variety. My favorite meal is the Black Angus New York Strip Steak and my wife’s is the Australian Spring Lamb – both perfectly... More

Has a broad range of "ethnic" options including Mexican and Middleeastern. Nicely presented. Good for kids. We enjoyed our lunch.

Stopped in on the way up north for dinner after reading the reviews. Excellent! We started with the grilled cheese fondue app, very tasty and my daughter loved it. Had the goat stew and kafta over rice with asparagus. Both were excellent. Great drink selection and a kids menu for the less adventurous young ones. Staff very friendly and welcoming.... More

I am always in Lincoln and have recommended the Gypsy to friends but I was surprised and upset this past weekend. I was enjoying food and beverages with friends and we had paid our bill but were finishing conversation when the hostess was seating another table in passing she told us they were switching to dinner and they had people...

I apologize for the incident on Sunday. I was the hostess in question and I certainly did not mean any disrespect. We had many reservations for Sunday dinner which begins at 5 p.m. and two of the tables where you were seated were to be placed together for a party of eight at 5:15. Again, I apologize and hope you... More

The food here really exceeded my expectations. Four of us were in the area for a few days skiing at Waterville. We took a drive up through the notch and then came back down to Lincoln for some lunch. The menu is has something for everyone. We started with margaritas, wine and beer. There were several local beers on tap... More

Hard to believe that such a small place could have such outstanding world-wide food. Besides having great beer on tap for $4.50 a FULL 16 oz. glass their house margarita served in the same 16 oz. glass was really good for $6.50. Best of all was the Moroccan Shrimp with couscous topped with Greek sudzuki sauce and pistachio nuts surrounded... More

This would be at least my 6th time here over the years. I usually get the red curry duck (which is the best duck dish I have ever had) but I tried the Ethiopian pork dish which was also excellent. My husband had the pumpkin chipotle pasta which was incredibly tasty. I also had a mushroom bisque which was the... More

An eclectic menu that never disappoints & friendly service make this tiny eatery a must whenever we're in Lincoln. It's tiny, so make reservation well in advance.
