Mexican cantina with great pedigree and warmth, testament to the ethos that good service and good food ensure success.
Bibi’s Cantina has been a quiet favourite in the Partick area since opening in 2007. Located just beyond the point on Dumbarton Road that a wander is likely to take you, locals have enjoyed keeping schtum about this small but big-hearted boho Mexican eatery lest it get too busy for them to grab a table. Duck in under the twinkling fairy lights and you will find a lively Mexican cantina where diners are greeted with complimentary shots of frozen Margarita and tortilla chips as they browse the short but confident menu. Their fish of the day – marinated in garlic, chilli, tequila and coriander, served with coconut rice – is well worth coming back for. If you can get in between noon and early evening their early bird menu gives diners a swing at pretty much the full à la carte for a reduced price (£11.95 for two courses or £13.95 for three). Visiting Bibi’s is a thoroughly enjoyable experience brought together by the terrific staff who are funny and work the small room in a way that brings tables of strangers together.
