I couldn't of wished for a better evening, plate smashing and Greek dancing, Gabby even got my partner dancing :-) , I highly recommend Gabby's , this is the 2nd visit and would love to go again. Thank you so much Gabby for making my 40th unique . Helen xx

“Big Disappointment”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We booked Gabby's Greek restaurant because of the good reviews it received on Trip Advisor. It was our first visit to Lincoln and we wanted to use a local restaurant rather than a chain.
We shared the Meze starter which was OK and reasonable value but both main courses were a real disappointment. We go to Greek restaurants regularly and have been going to Greece every year on holiday for 40 years so we do know how Greek food should taste. The beef stifado had carrots in it (not onions or shallots as it traditionally should) and tasted like a beef stew with no spices or flavour at all. The chicken we ordered was just a big lump of chicken with rice and the the roast potatoes were greasy.
We sent both courses back and only paid for the starter and the bottle of retsina (which we took away with us as wed didn't have time to drink it).
We wouldn't recommend this restaurant to any-one who wants a traditional, tasty Greek meal.

“Fantastic atmosphere”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Visited for my sisters 40th. There was 24 of us in total (and some really fussy eaters) we all went home absolutely stuffed. Gabby is a fab host - greek dancing, plate smashing and happy birthday songs and cocktails. Fantastic experience!

“Why don't more citys have Greek restaurants as good as this ?”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Having lived in north London near green lanes harringey and moved away we are always looking for Greek restaurants on our travels . This ticked all the boxes . The meat balls and the moussaka brought back memories & the kleftico within the meze was excellent . So if you like Greek food and you are visiting Lincoln visit this family run friendly restaurant . You do need to book in advance though as we nearly missed out !
