We were in the area for 9 days and ate at BiBi's 4 times. The food was always fresh and the lobster was the best on the island. Nice waterfront restaurant with a comfortable vibe

Took over an hour to get our food and a half an hour for the check. Ordered a beer three times and it never came. Food was really basic. Pineapple juice was blanded with water. Passion fruit juice was delicious.

Worth the boat ride to this cafe. Beach area is a 3/5 at best. Bathrooms really need a tidy. Staff slightly inattentive. Chitras (small biting insects) come out hard and fast at sunset but staff brought us some oil to keep them at bay. What...More

The peal and eat shrimp by the basket is a highlight at the beach bar. Perhaps it was the wrong set of expectations that lead to us not being wow’d by this place. If your looking for a beach snack spot and bar, it’s good....More
