“Fabulous food, delicious bar drinks and delicious food in an amazing setting!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Bibis is fantastic: it sits in a cove surrounded by a dense lush rain forest, and looking out onto the Caribbean on three sides! The food is exquisite!! Everything is super fresh, prepared exactingly and delicious! I watched Lady prepare drinks, squeezing fresh lemons for a lemonade bar drink. The prices were low, given the quality of their food. And the ambiance is amazing: there are islands all around, covered with lush rain forests!! Bibis is a special treat!!!

“Good price, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

The service was friendly and the food was fine. The view is delightful. In the evening you can eat and watch pelicans fishing. The price was very reasonable. We paid $30 for dinner for 3 people (with soft drinks). If you're staying on any of the other islands, you will need to arrange for a water taxi to take you there and bring you home. Because you are on the beach, you will have annoying gnats biting at your legs. Wear pants or repellant.

Great after swimming/ snorkeling on nearby beach, they don't mind if you are still wet! Happy hour with great cocktails and appetizers, good prices and right on the water!

“Caribbean delight on Careneros”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Just 5minute taxi ride on the water from Bocas Town to this bar and restaurant over the beach. Great happy hour drinks. They offered us fresh lobster and crab, and it was fabulous. Two large Caribbean lobsters and an enormous crab served with rice, French fries and salad. WOW! What a meal. The service by Bernardo and Stephanie was so good that we returned the next day for fish and lobster sandwiches. Huge and also with the best homemade fries on Bocas! Don't miss going at 4 pm for happy hour and dinner so you can watch the 5pm rush hour on the water. The absolute BEST!

“Best place in Bocas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Thank you! This is the only place worth eating in Bocas! We went to many restaurants all of them were terrible except for Bibi's we went twice because it was so good. We had lobster, crab, soup and prawn pretty good!
