Perfect meal with great service, ambiance, and food. Couldn't have been much better. The menu is fantastic and the quality was unparalleled.

Every course was delicious. The bison was to die for. Nice place for a date as it is quiet and has perfect ambience. Definitely will return.

Absolutely loved Bibo - the bacon dates, mussels and toasts were all to die for - would skip the ribs. The French gentleman serving us was too notch and we had such a great time we tried to come back another night but they were closing up!

We are really glad you loved BiBO! I'm so sorry it was a little late to have you back but we can always accommodate guests for a BiBO Board and sometime more options as well as drinks after the kitchen is closed. We are working on a late night menu as well. We have also switched to a fall version... More

In the winter we find it a little dark and crowded inside but summer on the deck is lovely and will be even nicer when the new plaza area below is finished. Food is varied and good standard but it is dark inside for us with less than optimal vision.

So glad you enjoy our new patio! Thank you for rating our food and service high and we are sorry you find it a little dark inside in the winter. The brick walls and the dark wood interior creates a cosy vibe a lot of our guests feel comfortable in. The lighting is all on dimmer switches so next time... More

One of my favourites in the world - combining a lovingly curated, locally sourced menu, with really interesting wines, and a magical dining terrace. The small team at Bibo treat you like family - welcoming, interesting and good, good food.

My partner and I have been coming to Bibo for years now and love the food, the staff and the atmosphere. The food is delicious, the owners very knowledgeable and friendly, and they've got one of the best patios in town. Whether you're looking for a refreshing drink, an appetizer and/or a main meal- this is your place! Very affordable... More

The food was absolutely amazing - and in my opinion that is the most important thing - hence the perfect rating. The setting is beautiful day or night. Very chic decor. The service was good, not excellent. Seems like a newer restaurant so maybe they are still working out some kinks. I would definitely return and would recommend it for... More

We appreciate that you enjoyed your experience with us and shared this review. We are having the busiest summer to date with August being the peak month and apologize for not meeting our usual excellent service despite you still finding it good.

Sampled the menu of this great tapas/fusion restaurant and loved it! One of the best meals I've had, not just in Nelson. The ceviche was really fresh and delicious, the cocktails were great and the garlic prawns were unreal. The warm baguette was perfect for soaking up the extra sauces.

As this restaurant is top rated in Nelson, I had high expectations and was not disappointed! Took my brothers here for their birthday and we were all impressed. Love the tapas and share plates idea, made the dinner very fun. Service was top notch as well, our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu.

We had a somewhat negative experience dining here. I think our waiter was new and didn't know anything, so that may have entered into it. But bottom line was that it was overpriced, and I felt like I waited forever to get my water refilled, the portions are small and nothing really was that tasty. 4 of us dined, and... More
