The service and drinks at Hibou were brilliant. However we booked a table at 7:45 ordered drinks and were then told that the kitchen shut at 8 and couldn't order food and that our table was just for drinks. This really wasn't obvious when we booked. The server was brilliant, sorted us out a table at the restaurant next door and was really helpful, however this wasn't clear at all when booking, we were expecting to eat and I don't think 7:45 is very late for food. I would certainly go again but I would double check what my booking was for first. I think this might be more of an issue with the booking system than the venue itself.
Great food, lovely initial service, was abit difficult to get a hold of waiters as we were at the back of seating area however service was more than polite and fast once served.
Will be back!
Lovely, attentive wait staff. Lovely thick furry blankets to keep warm. Well sheltered tables
Wonderful oysters with the golden hour champagne!!
Booked for a birthday meal. Menu small but perfect for what we wanted. Quality of food fantastic. Would highly recommend the oysters! Staff were very friendly, attentive and keen to accommodate. Good shelter from the rain, heaters not great but blankets offered readily.
Not recommended for outdoor dining. No wind protection whilst raining. Heaters inadequate
Lovely staff they really went out of there way to ensure a pleasant experience...nothing too difficult.
Service very poor, ignored for most of the time we were there so ended up spending a lot less than we would have. Waiter came and poured a full glass of prosecco and made us feel like we should be drinking quicker and leaving. One member of staff in a hoodie that looked unprofessional especially in comparison to other staff wearing shirts and aprons.
£17 for a bowl of pasta and it was overcooked and watery
Wine list good as always
Lovely lunch, small lunch menu but liked the choice. Not a one for large menus and understand with current situation this ensures freshly cooked. The sun was out too so helped keep us warm. They had lovely big throws just in case. If I had to say one thing, quite a few of the tables would not benefit from the very small heaters that were attached to the main central umbrella and would not catch the sun (if it was out) so could be quite cold. However I would return as I do think as it warms up this would not be a problem.
I took my other half there for a pre birthday dining experience. I asked for a glass of champagne on arrival, which was lovely and presented just after we sat down surprising my other half. We ordered a couple of cocktails each which were also of great quality and the espresso martini is one of the best I’ve had.
We also ordered food, the red wine steak pasta dish and the Hibou Blanc club sandwich and a small side (the menu is very small, but is to be expected at the moment). Both of our dishes were of great quality and the pasta was especially delicious and not stingy on the meat!
Overall it was a great experience and we will definitely be visiting again. The staff are also lovely and it’s a real asset to the Bigg Market.
Food was delicious but for the price steak and chips £18 should of included some greenery even a small amount of steamed kale just to make it a bit healthier and value. Rest of the meal was great value for money and outstanding. Resturant was a little too dark inside.
Brilliant as always. Thanks for being patient with my puppy Travis Barker. Lobster Risotto was dreamy. Chefs clearly know their stuff. Floor staff attentive and sweet
The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was quiet due to the rain, but we were given blankets and the heaters were on. Enjoyed the Golden Hour!
booked for 4pm, it was raining, staff sat walk ins under an umbrella before people who had booked, staff clearly judged customers and assumed they would buy more if smartly dressed which wasn't the case.
stayed for one in the end but planned for more, went elsewhere. would never return.
Fantastic service, great oysters and champagne served. Lovely area created to allow outdoor dining. Thanks for a great afternoon!
Superb menu, fresh oysters, expertly crafted cocktails, attentive staff. Thank you. We will return
Great we got a seat and a catch up but there taking 15 minute booking. I arrived at 9.45 pm to be told time at the bar is 10 pm a bit disappointed. Let’s hope things move on quickly be safe out there. I love this bar it’s the best in town . Nice staff very polite and friendly. Five stars to the staff.
The food was okay but didn’t justify the price. There was no garnishing just meat and fries. I would have expected a little more presentation from a mid to high range restaurant.
Brilliant all round
Staff were fantastic, very welcoming. Al fresco Menu slightly limited but still a good selection. The golden hour oysters and champagne were amazing value, followed by some very tasty lobster and a cheeseboard. Our first day out in a while and the sun had his hat on!
There wasn’t enough heat lamps, the ones that where out where far too small. It was freezing.
Simple menu with quality ingredients.
Professional service from the moment of booking.
Didn’t have food but it looked great. The service was good and lovely friendly staff
Showed up for booking was told they were closing early by manager we explained we had booked and we had also paid for a taxi to the venue he shrugged his shoulders never even checked our booking will be cancelling all future booking I have with this venue. I hope they are still this arrogant when the post lockdown hype fades
Had a lovely experience, think they’ve done very well creating a nice atmosphere outside. Food was excellent. Service could have been a little quicker but I know it’s the first week opening back up so it might just have been that.
Cocktails are fantastic.
Food finishes at 5pm on Sunday and we arrived after that, but the staff were fine with us ordering from the Greek restaurant next door who also provided plates, cutlery, etc. so no big issue.
New menus look great so looking forward to when the interior restaurant is up and running.
One thing to improve, have the outdoor heaters on, it was a damn chilly night.
Overall experience was excellent. Lovely atmosphere, we didn't eat but food being served looked delicious. Great value and lovely and clean. So well organised and staff very attentive. Everyone adhered to the guidelines and overall experience made you feel safe. Can't wait to return.
The cocktails are overpriced the pornstar martini was like it had come out of a can had to send it back was the worst I have tasted. Then ordering another drink got the order wrong and had to be sent back
First trip eating out after lockdown. Wasn’t actually sure about Sunday Lunch outside on Bigg Mrkt but it was great. Food up to normal delicious standard although with an understandably reduced menu. Not sure what would have happened if it had rained as the umbrella covered only a couple of tables. Found the very small table a bit restrictive for four people but added to the fun. Would have stayed longer if the table hadn’t been booked after our 2 hours, they did let us stay another 45 mins though.
Making the most of the outside area during the pandemic. Tables dressed and ready for each customer. Staff always so polite and professional. Didn’t eat on this occasion but from previous visits would definitely recommend 100%.
First time out from lockdown and first visit here and we can’t wait to return again and when it’s fully open in May! Good setup for al fresco dining- food was lovely, drinks are reasonably priced (it is centre of town!) and the service was great!
Lovely food and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend eating here.
Enjoyed outside eating , great service recommend to friends
Superb all round - food, drinks, service and ambience. Congratulations to all at Hibou
Fantastic evening back in Hibou Blanc, good food and selection of drinks
Only outside menu available, looking forward to trying other menus when available from 17th May.
Great food and cocktails. Lovely ambience as well.
Great bar & despite the COVID measures, still a great place to dine out
Excellent service and great atmosphere. The service of the staff is outstanding.
