“Delicious Food at Reasonable Prices - Believe the Hype!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The recipe for a good restaurant takes many forms but in this case simple, good quality food at prices not designed to rip you of are the key qualities of this place.

We went for lunch and had two courses for £10.50. The food was delicious, the stuffed jalapeño were yumma and the mexican stew had loads of meat in a delicious sauce.

Lovely little place not trying to be pretentious in any way doing simple things right. Was packed full, no doubt to the high Tripadvisor standing and well deserved.

Make sure to book as very popular.

“Chimicangas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

I love Mexican food. Love it. I'm a bit obsessive about it being done properly, and bibi's (I believe the lower case is intentional...) do it very, very well.

Great value lunch menu if you're out this way, brilliant a'la carte and the best pulled pork chimichanga I've had in Glasgow.

“First visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Visited here for the first time today after reading so many good reviews on Trip Advisor. I am pleased to say that all the praise was not without merit. Miserable weather outside but inside Bibi's was like a little slice of Mexico. The decor was a lot more interesting and sophisticated than I expected, with lanterns and fairy lights adorning the windows and tea lights on every table. We were given a warm welcome and a margarita shot from the waitress, as well as a bowl of tortilla and salsa. These are lovely touches, and when you compare the service and price to one of the big Mexican chains like Chiquitos, Bibi's wins hands down. We both had the steak wrap with chips, which I was expecting to be just a normal steak wrap, but it was actually packed full of flavour, and despite the fact that we ordered from the lunch menu and it was under a fiver, the portion was very generous. All in all, the rating is entirely justified and it is excellent value for money. So much so that we have booked in for my partners 40th dinner in a few weeks!

“great food at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Visited with my vegetarian daughter on a quiet Sunday night, first surprise was how many people were dining in Bibi's, good start, you must doing something right to be full on a Sunday in the middle of January! Complimentary drink and snack on arrival and friendly staff. Ordered a starter and main course each, enjoyed all the food, great flavours, generous portions and well presented. Two drinks each, total bill £44.

Will definately return.
