High end but some problems.

If I were doing nothing except reviewing the food served this would be a hands-down 5 out of 5. We had food that could stand comparison with top restaurants in cities 10 times the size of Nelson. In particular the "BiBO Board", essentially a charcuterie and cheese plate, was maybe the best of its... read more

Not sure what Brandi N is about. We found the restaurant charmingly modern and unpretentious. The starters were tasty, the catch of the day was great and the burger was delicious. One note was that the French fries were described as pomme frite but were actually French fries. The wait staff was knowledgable and appropriately attentive. While the wine list... More

We love going on Trip Advisor and going to highly recommended places to eat. This is the first time we have ever been disappointed. The service was great, the food options were good, and high quality ingredients were used. Unfortunately the preparation of the food just wasn't there. I ordered BC game chicken with potatoes and squash, the chicken was... More

Lovely bistro in Nelson with good food and lovely service. Erica was our charming waitress who guided us thru the menu choices of both small plates and full dinner options. Nice wine list too.

The street was under construction, so it took us a few minutes to actually find this restaurant, but it was so worth it. They have a multi-level patio under the trees which was so welcome on a very warm evening. Our server was lovely, took time to chat, and was very thorough in her description of the dishes offered.

TripAdvisor ratings steered us this way - and we are sure glad we checked the local restaurant scene out on this site. We arrived early without reservation, but got a choice table under one of the sunbrellas (welcome as there was one brief cloudburst) and were quite surprised by the variety and quality of the food offerings. We were a... More

We had dinner here on a nice warm evening and sat out on the patio. Nice atmosphere and very friendly and attentive service. The menu is quite small but the food is delicious and a varied selection. I'd definitely rate this as one of the best in Nelson.

We happened upon Bibo because of Trip Advisor as well as our hotel manager. We were going to go to the Hume but Dan told us it was not as good as Bibo...he was right. Erica greeted us and was absolutely lovely. The food was outstanding. The Dream Bowl and Salmon special were excellent. Service was a bit on the... More

We are so glad you chose to dine with us and enjoyed your experience. We have jumped into our busiest part of summer earlier this year. While we brought on wonderful new members of our team, there were a couple of nights where there were some waits and our apologies for that. They are up and running now and are... More

Lovely patio, excellent food and wonderful service by Erika. Construction is underway in the immediate area but that doesn't distract from the overall ambience of a gorgeous summer evening on this patio. Erika was very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. I enjoyed two small plates and they were both delicious and offered excellent value. Impressive gin menu, I... More

Thank you so much for your review and really great to hear how much you enjoyed your experience. The construction next to us is coming to completion this week!

Bibo has a relaxed atmosphere, and has a great outside dining area (which is slightly spoiled at the moment by renovations to the roads, but still nice). Our food was delicious. The experience was marred a little by the fact that our service was slow; we could see tables arriving after us being helped much quicker while we were left... More

We appreciate your review and are glad you enjoyed your food on our new terrace.

We apologize for any waits that had happened during these peak times. The construction next to... More
