EDITOR'S NOTE: As of spring 2018, Bibo has been helmed by chef Nicholas Chew, previously of Serge et le Phoque. The review below refers to our editor's visit prior to Chew taking over the kitchen. Stay tuned and watch this space as we experience Bibo's new chapter later.
Bibo is part of Le Comptoir group: as one of its first restaurants to open in Hong Kong, it carries all the signature characteristics of its venues. It’s beautifully decorated (in this case with some pretty priceless and impressive modern art pieces); it’s buzzy; and it’s expensive. In contrast to its surroundings, Bibo offers fairly classic French cuisine, with an emphasis on premium ingredients such as Hokkaido scallop; Brittany blue lobster; or Miyazaki wagyu beef. Located along historic Hollywood Road, just diagonally across the street from tourist magnet Man Mo Temple, Bibo is a reliable spot always for a quick drink before dinner; a no-fuss yet reliable business lunch; or even Sunday brunch with free-flow champagne.
