A Nelson local recommended BiBO & it did NOT disappoint. The ambience & decor reflect our impression of Nelson: warm, cozy comfortable with a nod to tradition yet has a cool modern/modestly urban undertone. The service is great, our server Amy had the friendliest smile & disposition 🎀 she gave good recommendations for the charcuterie board appy & on the... More

Have returned to Bibo multiple times, the last not quite as 100% perfect but still "really good". Burger week submission was well seasoned and really quite flavorful, not disappointed. The duck skin was delicious but laden, not the crisp to lighten the load. Definitely found some of the food extremely more-ish, amazing combinations that lead to you holding back in... More

Thank you for your review. I must admit I'm a little confused as to when you were reviewing. Sounds like from burger week last Nov? I also had a little trouble understanding what dishes you were referring to but overall looked like you enjoyed them. Thanks for coming in and we look forward to having you back. If you have...

I dined here with my two teenage sons and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal - one of the best we had while on our three week holiday through BC. we really enjoyed the way the chef himself came out and spoke about the menu - his care and enthusiasm was reflected in the food he provided which showcased local produce.

What a great little restaurant. I can see why our friends recommended Bibo. We are both into healthy food and the menu catered well to us. We're only here for a few days, but we intend to return so we can sample some of the other interesting dishes on the menu!

Thank you for your reveiw. We are just experiencing a very cold snap! It has been normal temperatures where we keep nice a toasty but when temperatures dip dramatically, it takes a couple hours to adjust in this historic building. So glad you enjoyed your experience. June McEwen More

Went to Bibo based on a recommendation. The food was very good and the menu was interesting and creative. The room was lively, however still comfortable for an intimate meal if desired. The service was friendly and professional, however was leisurely paced at times. The wine list while not extensive was well priced. While there are a lot of restaurant... More

Read all the good reviews on TripAdvisor, however was slightly disappointed with the the portion of the meals in relation to the cost, as well the 2.15 hour duration it took from being sat, to eating and getting a cheque. Ordered the bibo burger, it was quite small for being $18.00 as well the portion of fries with dip was... More

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!
