Creative dishes!

This restaurant is in an old house, so it is full of character and has more than one room for dining, as well as a bar. The food is flavorful and unique. After dining here, our group eagerly went a second time while staying in Gorham to photograph the fall foliage.

This is the less casual (but still kind of casual) side of Libby's Bistro and Saalt Pub. Between them, we've been four times. Both are superb, serving genuinely gourmet food and drink with excellent service. Mussels, Cambodian beef, soups... we've never left without a few "wows."

Libby's is a very nice dining experience. Comfortable atmosphere, reasonable prices, and excellent service. There are two dining areas. One is a quiet, comfortable space with a old europe feel and the other (Salt Pub) is a bustling jam packed riot. A good variety of menu choices and wines. Full bar. This is certainly one to try.

Excellent food. Very nice wines. Excellent service. Wonderful ambience. What more could one ask for in the north woods of New Hampshire? Highly recommended.

This restaurant offers Mediterranean/European cuisine. Each dish was amazingly presented and the melody of flavors was exquisite. When visiting Gorham, NH, this is a must for a meal that is out of this world.

Artistry reigns no matter the expertise. Liz continues to cuddle us with her wizardry in culinary treats. We return from California each year to the glow of New Hampshire leaves in the fall. Our trip is built around Libby's Bistro and we are never disappointed. The combinations she creates will have you begging for more. The bistro itself is cozy... More

The food and presentation is amazing. This was another recommendation by our innkeeper and she was spot on. I got the kabobs, and the taste was amazing. The other couple we were with raved about their dishes as well. Not sure if they take reservations but if they do; make them.

It is amazing to have such wonderful food in such an isolated part of New Hampshire. Excellently prepared, interesting food that was not so out there that you questioned what you were ordering. Absolutely lovely. It should be featured in Food and Wine.
