“Great Views, Good Service”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

The best parts of this restaurant are the views. The food is average, the coffee not so good. The service is good given that there is only one person working the entire restaurant regardless of whether you go for lunch or dinner. They open for breakfast only if the nearby hotel (Bucanner) has several guests staying,

“Just amazing”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Don't expect super fast service and enjoy the ride. Gorgeous setting, amazing lobster. I wish I could live upstairs so I could watch the sunset there, drink beers, and eat lobster daily. Awesome!!

“best seafood you can find”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

on our entire trip all over panama this place definetely offered the best seafood we ate! the service is more then friendly and obliging. we stayed at the buccaneer resort which is located behind bibis for three nights and had breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday in bibis, except one evening (we went to the cosmic crab which was also very good, but nothing compared to bibis). i can totally recommend everything you find on the menu (i just ate fish, so i cant tell you about meat/chicken). the fresh ceviche is awesome (somehow i need to get the recipe...), the fish is very tasty and don´t forget to try the lobster-sandwich creole style!
i can totally reccomend this place if you want to experience first-class seafood!

“Lunch after surf lessons”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Had lunch at Bibi's after surf lessons at the adjoining Escuela del Mar. Food was excellent and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. We ordered the Ceviche Bibi as an appetizer which was my favorite part of the meal and the fresh fish sandwich was equally as good. This place is right on the water so the location is great as well.

“Very Good”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I had high expectations for Bibi's and it was just very good, not excellent. Didn't really see the "really nice staff" and the quality of food was no better (or worse) than some of the food we had elsewhere. Nice location and maybe it is more fun when there are more people than just us! :)
