“Simply Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

We ate here in August 2011. Sat out on the patio with a view of Kootenay Lake and had an outstanding meal. The meatloaf with a poached egg on top was unusual, but very very tasty.

“I'll be back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

Some locals recommended Bibo for a nice meal and the place did not disappoint! They politely took our reservation over the phone and seated us on the outdoor patio when we arrived. Food and beverages were moderately priced, but the menus are extensive and feature a daily feature sheet. Wonderful, creative cuisine - try the bacon wrapped dates!
Fresh, homemade pasta was a hit - and fresh berry pie was a great ending to an awesome meal. The live DJ was great - music was a good mix (e.g. Federico Aubele) and not too loud.

“Excellent dining experience worth the price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2011

I am skeptical that restaurants with one word names such as "Bibo" are pretentious and over-priced. This one is rather expensive, but I agree wtih the recent preceding reviews that the service is good, the food is creative and excellent, and the atmosphere on the outdoor patio on a hillside overlooking downtown Nelson is wonderful.

“A special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

My wife and I recently had dinner here on our trip through the area. This was a highlight. Great food and wine, an amazing waitress and a very special atmosphere. It was a lovely warm evening and the patio was a great way to dine here. I would go back in a heartbeat. The price was very fair for the quality.

“Wonderfully original!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

After a very long drive, BIBO was our first dining experience in Nelson. We were not disappointed. The food, wine, ambiance, service were all excellent! Prompt and friendly service, wonderful flavors and original dishes made for a memorable dinner. Thanks to the staff and chef! Off the main street but well worth the look!
