Visited here last minute for tea. We managed to get a table at 6pm - fully booked otherwise. We felt a bit underdressed as inside it's quite fancy and everyone was really dressed up. The food was really good, I had the calzone which was...More

Visited here near christmas time with my nana. It was lovely treat for lunch. I would say its quite expensive but it is worth it. The food was great quality and the resturant is very nice inside.

We went as a group of 14. We all had good meals from the wide ranging menu and the service was attentive. I had a selection of grilled fish which was cooked to perfection. My only real criticism was the ambience. Unfortunately the large dining...More

Thank you for your review. Bibis is a large restaurant and as you point out can be quite loud on evenings and at weekends. I am afraid this is largely unavoidable however we do try and offer quieter tables to people upon request if we...More

Ate here the other night and had a great time. The place looks fantastic and the food was great. Not the cheapest of places but well worth the money. Real handy right in the town centre. Staff were great and made you feel real special.

This wasn't my first visit to Bibi's but was by far the most disappointing. Our visit was to celebrate a family birthday so we had a party of 12 of us, some people really liked it and some were disappointed. The place looks great when...More
