Description: Cafe Zoot is a privately owned business opened in 2000, located in the heart of historic Lincoln. During this time we have become renowned for consistently offering quality produce at great value, where a lively atmosphere is commonplace and friendly staff are attentively at your service. In January 2013 Cafe Zoot underwent an extensive refurbishment. After listening to our customers on ways in which we could improve our restaurant, Cafe Zoot now boasts a brand new look, and a much more spacious interior. We are open seven days a week from 8.30Am till late and offer a Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner menu. Throughout the week we also offer a Lunch Special Two Course Menu for £8.50 And an All Day Special Two Course Menu for £11.95. (Everyday except Saturday from 5.00Pm till 10.30Pm) Our Chefs have worked hard on designing a menu with the classic dishes our customers love as well as offering an exciting A'la Carte menu with dishes to get your taste buds going!! We always use fresh quality produce and our dishes our homemade and cooked to order. Cafe Zoot can cater for various functions, whether you fancy a Champagne Breakfast, Birthday or Anniversary Celebration, we can also cater for Business conferences and meetings. Whatever the occasion come and celebrate with us!!

Reviewed March 3, 2013

The staff were very friendly. Food was delicious and not overly priced.Also a good variation on the menu. The only downside was that because it is small downstairs, the tables for two are a little close togehter. Recommend you book a table before hand, we will do that next time we just got in before the rush.

“Very Disappointing.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Called in for quick lunch. Looked nice and was busy. Both had the Zoot Burger. Horrible, fatty bacon, 80s salad and crappy bun. Meat was ok, but on the while very disappointing.

“Could not fault this lovely restaurant”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We had a really exceptionally lovely meal here and would recommend it highly. The Moroccan style lamb shank with couscous was beautiful and it was served very professionally by an extremely efficient waiter. The wine, a good Argentinian Malbec, was served at just the right temperature and we followed the food with a perfect cappuccino. An excellent meal experience in lovely surroundings.

“Superb!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Visited on a Saturday evening. Very busy, greeted and told table ready shortly, given complementary nibbles(nice touch). Great meal, seafood risotto fantastic, deep fried brie also lovely. Decent meal list, glad they had my fav. an Argentinian Malbec on the list. Service was attentive without being over fussy. Very good value.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have just had Sunday lunch at Cafe Zoot. It is very good value at £7.95 for a starter and maincourse (£8.95 for starter and Sunday roast). The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and efficient, despite the restaurant being full.
We both had, and loved, the roast lamb, having enjoyed leek and potato soup (it was snowing outside!) and potato skins for starters. The potato skins were a revelation to my wife who enjoyed them enormously.
The puddings were no less good. I had Apple and Sultana Samosas, a wonderful variation on apple pie. Wow! My wife enjoyed her Grand Marnier parfait with pistachio brittle "Oh, that was gorgeous".
A brilliant restaurant, at a crazy cheap price, in the most beautiful part of the city.
