We stopped by for a quick pre-dinner glass of wine and snack and loved it so much we went back the next night for dinner.

This place has a fantastic patio during the summer months and is a great place to spend a couple hours relaxing and soaking in the Nelson vibe.

Service and food were excellent!

Dining on the patio was very pleasant on a hot summer's evening. Our main courses (gnocchi dishes) were very tasty, although the raw oysters were not as cold as they should have been and there should have been a hit of something sharp/spicy. Bland! The drinks and the service were good. A very enjoyable dinner out.

Thank you for your feed back on the oysters.
We have since been serving them on ice so they stay colder during the warm summer months. We usually serve the oysters with fresh horseradish, lemon, mignonette and on request, tobasco. They are very fresh Stellar Bay oysters that tend to be smaller and sweeter and want the fresh flavour to come through.

Make sure to friend us on facebook and we will notify you of the monthly Oysterbar events we do from Sept to June featuring The Oysterman and his lovely Royal Courtesans from Cortes Island.

Have eaten here more than once. We adore Bibo and have gotten to know the owners, and others who work there over time. They have had to hire various chefs over the past years, but they always seem to find someone who presents our meals with a flair. One of their newer servers has not given us the attention we've received from all their other servers, so we now try to go on a day when we know who the person is that will be our server. They make a lot of effort to ensure they know from where their food comes, and barring maybe one mediocre meal, we are always happy to return. Last time we had lamb and fish and they were both delicious.

We appreciate your business and enjoy connecting with you when you come in.

Thank you for your feedback and by the time this review was posted the server in question had not found BiBO fit with her serving style and had already moved on.

We look forward to seeing you next time you are in!

Amazing local food! Good selection of wine, and we had the cutest French server who was very helpful and knowledgable about the food. Great experience! ... and super cool patio. A MUST SEE in Nelson.

I live in Nelson and only like to eat out if the experience is worth the money I spend. Bibo, consistently delivers a gourmet seasonal menu that is high quality... The food is often locally sourced, and is always prepared with care. I eat mostly vegetarian, but eat some fish and Bibo always has a variety of interesting and tasty dishes for me to choose from. But, I also see that they offer many meat and chicken options as well. Also, one of the best things about Bibo is the drink menu. Super exciting, and unique drinks make it fun to try something new. The owners are on quality control, have great taste and know good food, they take pride in the restaurant and it shows in all aspects. If you value a great high quality dining experience that is fun and casual, Bibo is not to be missed when you are in Nelson.
