Went with my partner, her brother and Mum for a pre-theatre dinner on a Saturday evening. We were given the option of sitting in the window- which seemed like a good idea- however, the table was too big for the space, resulting in quite a cramped, but pretty view over the High Street (and into the Slug & Lettuce staff room).
We ordered some wine and were offered a jug of water also- something which is strangely lacking these days, and the waitress not-so promptly brought us the wrong bottle, and proceeded to drop a glass on the table as well.
Clearly having a nightmare, albeit very politely, she apologised and excused herself, before mysteriously being replaced by another waitress...
We ordered the food, a selection of bowls, ranging from Chicken and Chorizo in a tomato sauce to a cold meat platter. the food was brought out as and when it was ready, rather than a table full at once. Having been to a number of tapas restaurants, I am not sure this is entirely authentic; the food was of an adequate quality- hot and tasty, the prawns were plump and juicy, with only the calamari disappointing (at over £5, it was also slightly overdone, leaving quite a rubbery texture).
With the food done, and the curtain raise looming, we paid a modest sum and left.
To summarise- fairly good food, but certainly not the best tapas in Lincoln, a pretty, if slightly flawed location, and pleasant, polite staff who are just a shade off average. I'd recommend as somewhere to take a long term partner, but not somewhere to go to impress.
