The food (all local &/or made in house), service & gin selection was nothing short of spectacular. My husband & I were not expecting the quality of food & service which we received. The charcuterie with BC cheeses & local meats including duck & bison was equal, if not better, than any we have ever had. The ceviche in both... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal I had at BiBo. I had the halloum Mediterranean salad, coconut curry mussels and fennel olives. With the aperitif and wine it was a bit pricey. I'd dine there again. Recommended for a date night or other special event.

So glad you enjoyed your meal with us. We make everything from scratch using locally sourced ingredients that are usually organic. Our chefs make our food to order and nothing is frozen. Our meats and fish are sustainable, hormone free and local. Despite the exceptional quality, we have worked hard at keeping the costs down so our prices are very... More

We visited Bibo on Saturday, July 23rd and were thoroughly impressed with the food, ambiance, and service. We arrived and were promptly seated on the patio which was busy full of couples and families. The ambiance on the patio is great. It's casual and magically hidden above the street but cozy under some very tall trees. The lighting is very... More

Our waitress was the star of the evening. Great girl, and a fellow motorbike enthusiast. The Sommelier new her stuff and kept us well lubricated. Good food, well prepared. I want to go back...

Really enjoyed our meal at Bobo, and the excellent service and ambience too. I had the buttermilk fried chicken, which came with a potato and onion pancake. At the waitress' suggestion I added a small spinach salad. My dh had the duck. We both were delighted. Dessert, a custard cake with fruit and Chantilly cream, was equally delicious.

The restaurant was full, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Bibo's patio. Our food was excellent and the service delivery strong.

This place is worth checking out if you're in Nelson. Great quality and selection, and we loved that they support local craft producers. You have to try the cedar infused gin, and whatever they have fresh from Torchlight. Great service too. We really enjoyed ourselves. Cool location at the end of narrow street, nestled into the hillside - makes for... More

Had dinner here, and we both really enjoyed the food, cocktails and wine. The service was excellent, and it had the feel of a local, neighbourhood favourite (even though we were tourists).

Made a reservation for 7:15 on the patio, but called at about 7 to say we were running a few minutes behind. As we approached, I could see there was no room on the patio, so we were seated at the bar for another 30-40 minutes. After a while we ordered a plate of olives (which were 'okay', but not... More

We are very glad you enjoyed the food and the ambiance. It is disapointing and very unusual that your service was lacking. You are correct, this isolated incident is not indicative of 'the best Nelson has to offer', as our reviews show. I believe this was a unique situation where a server got caught up in a 'hit' and didn't... More
