Food was extraordinary - even better than the few other meals I have had there which were all sensational. Great menu, and most helpful and attentive waitstaff. This is a wonderful find - try it!

WE had Sunday brunch; it was delicious but an over-abundance of food. (an argument I have against most restaurants. Less food, lower prices, please) Make sure you go hungry. Although we both enjoyed our meal, when we saw the Eggs Benedict being delivered to the table next to us we were both sorry we hadn't ordered them. We definitely will go back again.

Our first visit to Bibo's.
Our first visit to Bibo's. It was a very quiet night. The table was very small so it was hard to juggle all the serving dishes. Food was good - just seemed like an off night.

Small Menu - Great Food
The menu at Bibo's is small but everything on it was fantastic. The only downside is that they only serve beer and wine so don't go expecting a cocktail.

My friends and I often dine at the Madd Apple before a play at the PSC. It is quiet, the food is excellent and the service is always attentive and very good. Thank you.

This was my second visit and the food was once again - Fantastic!!! We had lunch and enjoyed the atmosphere also. The 'only' thing that I would have changed is that our waiter had the 'sniffles' as though he was sick,,,, not to appealing when handling food....

Best wine pairing dinner yet!
Bibo's presented, along with the SoPo Wine Co, a really wonderfully created five course meal, which was paired with a variety of rosés. Think: tempura fiddleheads with a cava...it was a fantastic meal and we always enjoy listening to Doug introduce the wines; I loved the "mistral blowing over the lavender" description of one of the wines from Provence. Yum!

A Hidden Gem
Was in Portland for a race and went searching Open Table for somewhere to eat. I like small places with interesting menus and a penchant for locally sourced food. Bibo's Madd Apple Cafe definitely fit that bill.
The food was very well prepared and they even made their own sodas. Should have picked up a box of their ginger beer to go.
Serving bread prepared in flower pots was a novel touch.
Would visit here again and again to see how the menu changes with the seasons.

FANTASTIC pastry basket!
If you go to Bibo's for brunch, you MUST get the pastry basket. The special the day we went was a banana chocolate chip sticky bun and it was to die for!

Having lived in Maine for many years and never having heard of Bibo's, I was surprised to find out about such a gem—thanks to a Portland friend who frequents the cafe with her husband. The lobster and crab cakes were both moist and meaty, and the spinach that accompanied them added just the right note. Since this was listed as an appetizer and I was ordering it as my main course, I accompanied it with a salad of mixed greens, almonds, and goat cheese. It was a lovely meal, one I would surely repeat, although I'm eager to try their other offerings as well. Known to be an after theater place to go, we found it pleasingly quiet on a summer evening.

First time and we are sure to return. The salad was fantastic with peaches and goat cheese, meals were excellent, and the dark chocolate torte with a ginger crust capped off the meal.

A wonderfully quiet place with an interesting menu and friendly, helpful staff.

Delicious and unique
Lunch was reasonable, which was a surprise for Portland, and inventive. Curried squash soup had chunks of squash and a creamy consistency. Smoked turkey half sandwich was nice and fries were made there. Salad garnish had great balsamic dressing. Waiter was funny and knowledgeable.
Would go again.

Only open for brunch once a week (Sunday mornings) but it was AMAZING!!! Homemade fresh apple cinnamon rolls to start out were melt in your mouth ooey gooey! Followed by a lobster crab cake benedict that was delicate with a perfect blend of flavors, perfectly poached eggs and the best hash I've ever had! Washed it all down with a lovely mimosa. What an amazing brunch! Probably our favorite bites in Portland! We can't wait to go back!

Never a disappointment
Bibo's has never let me down. It convenient location next to Portland Stage makes it the perfect pre-show dinner spot. Food is always fabulous and they have a good selection of wines as well.

Delicious, close to theater
Right next door to the Portland Stage, Bibo's is a great place to go after a matinee or before an evening show. The food and wine are excellent and are served in a European-style neighborhood restaurant atmosphere. The wait staff seems to have been there for a long time and are very professional, contributing to the European feel. They serve a variety of food, and I've never been disappointed. For dinner last Saturday my husband had fried chicken with mashed potatoes and a yummy gravy, while I had an Asian-flavor sesame coated scallop dinner with rice and zucchini "noodles" that were to die for. The tastes were subtle and went very well together.

We have been fans of Bibo's for many years and our last visit was as delightful as all the others have been. The menu is always creative, the food fresh and local (including the beer selections) and we always leave wondering why we would ever go anywhere else. If you are in the Portland area and have had the pleasure of dining at Bibo's, do yourself a favor and check it out!

We loved it. It's my go-to whenI'm going to the theater, they are very helpful at getting you out the door without feeling rushed!
