After eating a great dinner down the street, my partner and myself wanted desserts and drinks elsewhere. We found Bibo unexpectedly and immediately fell in love. The ambience is welcoming, warm and romantic. Our server, Erika, made us delicious cocktails and was so, so friendly. At the end of the night, my boyfriend and I both thought our little experience...

We were looking for a nice dinner while in Nelson, and this place was absolutely the right choice! Excellent dining experience: food was good, our server was friendly and knew her stuff, service was excellent. Cute little bistro style place, very intimate. Would definitely go back and recommend to all!

We were searching for a quality dinning experience and found the right place. Nice boutique bistro style, with relaxing atmosphere. Great service including the chiefs delivering plates when server was busy and explained the elements of the dish making my favourite side "beers for the kitchen". I will make a detour to Nelson just to eat here again.

We visited Bibo on a Tuesday evening and had a nice dinner. The restaurant is on the pricey side but the food was well made and very tasty. The service was also very good and the waitress was friendly. No complaints.

Although Bibo has no "vegan" entre on the menu, our waitress Daylen was super helpful in working with the chef to get me a warm and delicious Plant-based Whole Foods bowl of grains, grilled veggies and fingerling potatoes. Everything seasoned to perfection with just the right textures, and beautifully presented. Kudos to everyone at Bibo. We'll go there again when... More

Hadn't been to Bibo before, but we'll go back. Great setting in Nelson, friendly staff, inviting drink and food menu. Fresh flavors, just great food and drink. We tried a couple of their house-made cocktails (favorite:"Old Growth Forest" with cedar-infused gin) and had dinner on the patio. Would go back with enthusiasm. Recommend purchasing a "beer for the kitchen" for... More

Booked for a large family gathering so had the patio reserved for us. We had pre-ordered and staff did an amazing job of matching names to orders. Recommended some wonderful wines and were prompt with drinks and food. The buttermilk chicken was not a hit with everyone but the tiradito, catch of the day and duck were wonderful

Thank you for your excellent review and we are glad your family gathering was enjoyed by all. We love hosting these big events and are glad everyone felt well taken care of. Yes, it is not the everyday chicken dish you find in most restaurants but our buttermilk fried chicken on green onion pancake with chendu syrup is a hit... More
