We happened upon this restaurant in Nelson, BC, which is pretty far from anywhere. (Nelson that is). We had a lovely meal, and very accommodating staff. I don't write up too many places, so this one was definitely special.

Finding Bibo was like finding an adult restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Everyone really enjoyed their meal and we will certainly return.

The location is perfect, tucked away into a bank of maples. The service was great, the servers are knowledgable and diligent. The chacuterie platter was a treat, had great fresh and delicious meals. They also infuse their own liquors, the basil infused vodka was so refreshing and tasty. One of the best meals we've had outside of bigger city centers.

I am really surprised with the restaurants in British Columba. Bibo was just excellent. Great attentive service with good explanations. We shared Bibo Board and were pleasantly surprised with the ingredients, very tasty. I tried the special which was Elk and it was so delightful. My wife tried the steak and it just melted in your mouth. The salad and potatoes were just right. We had a nice prosecco to start and then had a merlot and a pleasant Chardonnay. Great Meal.

We shared an order of shellfish (apply) and the appetizer spread plates. This left room for dessert, which was the tiramisu and the chocolate cake (more like pure chocolate than a cake, divine). The drink special of the evening (a tropical punch) and another selection off special cocktails have the hand of an excellent mixologist. Make a reservation, or be there early, quite a few people arrived just after us and either had to wait or were turned away.

Thank you for your excellent review and giving people the 'heads up' to call ahead, especially in peak summer months. Even a quick call 15 - 30 min ahead is sometimes enough to get you in.
