“At least go there once! You are not going to regret it!”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

I went to Bibi's for dinner when I was in Bocas in June. I go to Bocas every 3 month for my visa and I don't know why it was my first time at Bibi's. It is too bad I did not go there before.
The food was absolutely great. Super delicious! The staff is very kind and the place is beautiful. Honestly... I can't think of anything I didn't like!

By the way: If you are on a tight budget, try to safe somewhere else. Just make it happend! Maybe 1 hour less diving? But don't miss this ;-)

“Romantic, fun, great location”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Take the boat taxi from Boca town (around $3 for two each way) to this little spot. Come before the sunset and watch the fish below the restaurant. Order the fish and the cheap beer ($.75 during Happy Hour). Everyone is fun, laid back and super friendly. Don't miss out on this place.

“just excellent”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

When you arrive at bocas del toro you think you enter in a lively caribbean paradise, but it can be better!
only a few minutes in watertaxi, an you can go ashore on the island carenero!
when you look at the seaside and you discover the nice waves you know that you can do only one thing: surfing!
But how to learn surfing when you have never been in the great ocean and when you come from the mountains?
That's all easy with luis, the best surf-instructor in the area!
Whit his professional advices and his motivating character you leave all your doubts behind you. Step by step luis introduces you in the art of surfing and this with a lot of fun an humor.
And when you stay the first time on the board, on a wave you will be addictet to this majestic feeling!
But good times in caribbean water makes hungry!
I swear that the best platanos i have ever tried in whole panama, where those from bibi's on the beach!!!
Penny welcomes you in this likable restaurant with a magnificent view on the seaside. In the kitchen waits the the cook prepares the freshest seafood and penny and silvia shake the best drinks!!
mmmmmmhhh i want to return!!!

y se esto es demasiado largo:

luis es el professor de surf mas grande del mundo, tambien a Heidi ensene el surf!! y en bibis on the beach se come y se toma como un rey!

“Average food”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Waited for our drinks for 30 minutes, then another 20 minutes for our food. Food is not more than "average". Lots of bug bites during our meal. The view is beautiful, but service is terrible. The waitress forgot which drinks we have ordered and has returned twice to ask us again. We ate at El Pecado the next night, what a difference!
