“Bit pricey for Italian but still love it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This place is great, even though it is a little on the expensive side for Italian food! The menu is extensive, the puddings are amazing and the service is always good. In terms of decor it has a real old school feel to it and reminds me of a cruise ship!

“Third visit and still getting better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This was my third visit here, and this time I was taken for my birthday and it was for one of the entertainment nights. Once again the service was fabulous, the food excellent and the place ......... well you really have to go to appreciate it.
The music/entertainment were wonderful and I will have no hesitation going back and would always pass on my praises about this fabulous place.

“A complete hidden Gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

OMG!!! This place is stunning and right off the beaten track underneath a car park it doesn't sound so good! but my word when you walk in it is literally like stepping back into another era that era being the 1920's 1930's just STUNNING!!!!! words failed me when I walked in and greeted by a stunning hostess.

Everything is Art Deco, the service is something you would receive at the Savoy (which I have been too) the kitchen is open and a flurry of chefs going about their business. The food is exquisite and second to none, beautiful staff, extremely attentive and the staff know all about the ultimate dining experience and have been trained impeccably well.

Thank you so much to the Management and Staff and of course not forgetting the Chefs for a truly tremendous experience, we will be back again soon!!!

“excellent food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We have dined at Bibis quite a few times now. We had diner there recently on a busy Saturday night and once again we weren't disappointed.

If you haven't been to one of the themed nights then you have to try them.

The service is second to non. The staff do everything they can to make your evening special.

Well done to all at Bibis, you can always rely on this restautant to deliver.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Called in here by chance, i couldn't believe how full it was and it was only 6.30pm on Saturday afternoon. We were lucky to get a table but i am so pleased we did, the food was to die for, i had a beef dish and the meat melted in my mouth, we had to wait a little for our food to arrive but believe me it was well worth the wait. I will be visiting again.
