Food was great. Had the macaroni and partner had the burger, both very good. Strawberry milkshake also amazing. Atmosphere and music make it a lovely spot. Never tried the cakes today but they looked tasty.

Arrived in Pitlochry and before we went exploring we stopped at Cafe Biba for a bowl of soup. Two types of soup on offer but both of us opted for the Lentil Broth, delicious, served pipping hot with French bread. People round about us were having main meals and they looked really nice.

Cafe Biba was one of the few placed open on December 26. The friendly staff serves a wide variety of dishes, including a daily special. The hearty lentil soup the perfect choice on a cold winter day.

Staff couldn't be bothered. Food not good either. Fish was in breadcrumbs but was tasteless and the macaroni cheese was runny! No one checked on us at any stage to ask if the meal was ok. Had to go to the counter to pay and still no one asked if everything was ok- they obviously know the food is lousy... More

We visited Pitlochry on a cold December night to see Scrooge. Having checked into ourB&B and looking for a quick meal before theatre we were lucky to find Cafe Biba still open. Service was swift, burgers arrived quickly and were overall nice, thick & juicy (although a bit rare in the middle, it would have been nice if they had... More

The sign outside the cafe said "come in, good food and friendly service". All good, we said so in we went. Had to wait 10mins before being seated. OK, no problem as it seemed busy. Sat down on a wobbly chair that was hardly substantial in construction! So I changed it for another one. No sugar bowl on the table... More

We stopped off at Cafe Biba on the day of the fire at Fishers Hotel. We travelled to Pitlochry for the Street Ceilidh but like so many others we were disappointed. Biba was our stop for desperately needed hot drinks on a very cold day. There was an immediate warm welcome from the first staff member we met and that... More

Cafe is less than half full, service is comical. Been waiting 15mins exactly now for the plates to be cleared. Lots of staff, just poorly trained. When the hot drinks arrived the waiter put them right in front of our toddler. Plenty of space where on the table. Total lack of thought. Food is average. Scrambled eggs were over cooked,... More

Great food and friendly atmosphere. Nice cakes, toasties and soup... the place is bigger than it looks so always room for a table.

We arrived on wet and windy morning to a warm welcome from the staff and the glow of a fire. We had the full Scottish breakfast x 3, and pancakes bacon and Maple syrup teas and a latte all came in very quick order. The food was hot and tasty, we left nothing on the plate and all at a... More
