“Great food cooked with flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Craig does an excellent job preparing the best of local ingredients. The steak night is excellent value and the quality is very high. Try the pâté and fish cakes however everything is first class served with a smile in a wonderful location.

“Location fab, its not a Bistro nor a Deli”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Have been three times over past year or so, hoping this place would deliver, still hasn't. It's an uninspiring, somewhat dowdy, place in a brilliant location. You get the idea when you see the big board at the entrance advertising the Steak nights and the Pizza nights. The chef seems to be pretty good, but our experience of the waiting staff is one of friendly amateurism. One of the staff was a bit overbearing and loud-mouthed, made us feel uncomfortable. The bar is a complete mess - cakes all over the place, and a settee in front facing outwards. Odd!
This location is screaming out for a high standard restaurant and bar, not this somewhat directionless place. Its not a Deli, its not a corner caff, its not really a Bistro. Its certtainly not a place for the discerning.

“Very relaxing meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I had a lovely meal in The Deli Bistro the other day. The seating was very comfortable not like some places with hard wooden chairs! The service was good and the food was excellent and well presented. It was very relaxing looking out on to the marina. I didn't feel 'hurried' as you often do in places. A very nice experience and will go again next time I am in Lincoln, especially as it is free parking - not like Lincoln Town Centre.

“Best Restaurant in Lincoln!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I visit The Deli Bistro frequently ... would not change anything here! I have previously been to lots of restaurants in Lincoln centre, and the food, value for money and service here exceeds all of them with ease! All the staff are willing to accommodate for any needs you want, whether that is preference of seating or slightly altering the ingredience in the meals, and as all the food is cooked fresh it is extremely easy to get the meal you want! Would recommend every single time!
