We say…

Located in Lincoln's historic Castle square, Olivares Tapas Bar can be found on the corner of Castle Hill. This small tapas bar allows you have a taste of Spain whilst in Lincoln's cultural quarter. Just moments away from Lincoln Castle and Cathedral, it's the perfect location for any occasion. Olivares is a family owned business ran by a husband and wife originally from Malaga.

Olivares is full of character. You really could be 1,000 miles away in Spain. The authentic wooden interior, mosaic lighting, artwork and mirrors give a true Spanish atmosphere. Dotted around the room are quirky surprises like a Spanish pottery that really add to the ambiance. When the sun is shining, enjoy al fresco dining with views of the Cathedral and Lincoln Castle. The outdoor seating in the stunning cobbled square allows you to truly enjoy the historic setting.

Offering a great variety and broad choice, the main menu is split into 4 sections; Vegetable, Hot Seafood, Cold Seafood and Meat/Poultry making the menu easy to navigate. All the tapas dishes on offer are made with fresh Spanish ingredients and cooked using authentic cooking techniques. On the menu you'll find many of the classics such as Patatas Bravas, Calamaras and Tortilla de Patatas. Vegetarians are well catered for with tasty option like Champinones Al Ajillo, sauteed mushrooms in a garlic and white wine cream sauce and Queso De Cabra, goats cheese gratin topped with caramalised onions and balsamic red fruit sauce. If you love seafood, Chorizo Y Gambas, chorizo and king prawns sizzling in a white wine sauce or Arroz Con Mariscos, wild rice with seafood are great choices. There are also endless choices for meat eaters including Albondigas a la jardinera, mixed beef and pork meatballs or Chorizo a la Sidra, spicy chorizo fried in cider apple sauce.

With over 50 tapas dishes to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice and planning your next visit before you've even left. Head to Olivares Tapas Bar and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, tasty tapas and wonderful Spanish atmosphere.
