Great service and ice cold beer! Chicken, shrimp and pasta dishes were great. 5 minute boat ride from Bocas town. Bring it out on bug spray at dusk/eve!

Serious safety incident

My son, husband and I just had dinner there last night. We each had two drinks. I had two beers and he had two rum drinks. Dinner was good and we very much enjoyed the meal, but about 30 minutes after we left my husband...became extremely intoxicated. It was not normal - we are pretty seasoned drinkers! My son and I got him home and his behavior worsened. He was unable to walk steadily, he wasn’t able to speak clearly, he was going in and out of consciousness and he literally slept for 12 hours. He was definitely drugged. He didn’t consume anything after our time at Bibis and we were at the restaurant for about 2 hours so it didn’t happen before we arrived either. It was a very scary event. Someone there is evil.More

My girlfriend and I went there for dinner last night. The food was pretty good and not too expensive. I ordered a mixed seafood pasta that was tasty and costed about $13 USD. However, my girlfriend started feeling weird while we were there, and we...are about 95% sure her drink was spiked. We only had 1.5 beers across multiple hours and the effects were very unusual and reminiscent of date rape drugs. We don’t know who it was, but be very cautious of your drinks if you go. To make matters worse, I called them last night once we made it home safely, and whoever I spoke with on the phone did not seem to care very much at all. Good food and beautiful view, but DEFINITELY BE CAREFUL!More

Bibi's is a nice restaurant in a beautiful location. Easy to reach by taxi from Bastimentos or Bocas Town. The whole fish was the best thing we ate.

Came here on suggestion from a friend show had been. Amazing fun time. Went on a Sunday night. Live DJ spinning fun tunes both local and popular music. Drinks were on point and service for supper was a bit slow but our food was delicious....They pulled tables together to seat our group right away. Vibes were so fun. Dance floor was popping after supper. Drinks came quickly and dancing was fantastic. Highly recommendMore

We had two great meals at Bibi's. The food and service were both fantastic. My six year old was initially disappointed when we returned for dinner and they said the hamburger wasn't available on the dinner menu. But our server said he would check with...the kitchen and the cook reassured my son that it would not be a problem. It was really very helpful of them. The ceviche was so so good and the fish in curry sauce was my favorite.More

Bibi’s has a great location with a large overwater patio and the drinks are good, but I’m puzzled how it got so many great reviews. Maybe other diners came at slower times so they had a good experience because the servers and bar could keep...up, but we went on a Saturday evening and it was not a great experience. When we first sat down we were happy to get a nice table and a waiter gave us a menu and we ordered drinks. But as the place got more busy you could see tables where the patrons had been sitting for extended periods of time with no service at all. Then we noticed people trying to flag down anyone for service. I admit the margarita was great. Maybe the tiny bar was overwhelmed because the happy hour runs from 4-7 and the place was packed. It seemed like they were either understaffed or the kitchen didn’t have the capacity to handle the orders or it was a combination of both. We travel a lot and understand service can be slower in other countries, but waiting an hour for our dinner was extreme. It became comical in a way watching the bewildered patrons who were happy when they first sat down become increasingly dismayed by the service. The curry fish dish was good. The octopus not so much. If I had to go here again I’d just go for drinks or try going at a quieter time like lunch. The other thing that blew me away was that the toilet didn’t flush in the bathroom and there was no water at the sink. Just a bottle of hand sanitizer. So where are the workers washing their hands? I don’t want to know, We didn’t get sick, so that’s good.More

We stopped by Bibi’s on recommendation, and we’re not disappointed. The ceviche was great, and the service was good, even though they were busy the whole time we were there. Would recommend stopping by for a drink and a snack after a walk on the...shore! Recommend bringing bug spray for the biting bugs and hand sanitizer as there was no running water in the bathroom during our visit.More
