Been going for a while so several visits combine into this review. First up the restaurant and facillities are very clean. Cibo have got the measure of if their guests want a laugh with their waiting staff or quiet attentive service and if you watch you can see the service vary table by table... on our last visit there was...

I enjoyed my experience at Cibo but the food really does need some improvement. 8 of us were out for a family dinner on a Saturday. When you walk in the restaurant looks great and there really was a great atmosphere. The place was full and had an enjoyable buzz about it. The staff were friendly and our waiter( didn't... More

This used to be the Roslyn Road End Tea Room and since then many people have tries to make a go of having various types of restaurants but unfortunately they all failed due to not so good food. BUT now the people that have opened up Cibo have made a mammoth change to the building so gone is the dingy... More

Went for dinner on a Thursday night with hubby, my parents & great uncle & aunt for his 84th birthday. They were happy for us to bring a cake for after the meal which we dropped off the night before. We had starters of calamari, pork belly, scallops & soup. All were lovely although my mum wasn't too keen on... More

I am lucky enough to live within striking distance of this wonderful restaurant. This makes me very happy but I will soon have to rethink my wardrobe! The staff are all excellent, friendly knowledgable,accommodating with interesting personalities and great banter. They can handle intimate and romantic dinners for two and large parties with equal aplomb. The ambience and furnishings are... More

This a truly magnificent find. I almost never give 5 stars. excellent service by highly trained, friendly staff who clearly love their jobs. The food was very good, served quickly and well presented. The surroundings were immaculate, it was hard to find any fault. Table well laid, wine glasses polished. Good atmosphere, and good value for money. Toilets spotless. Plenty... More

Part of a group of nine people I dined here on Sunday evening. I can only say that the staff were very attentive from the moment we walked through the door, the service was excellent and the food delicious! I will definitely be dining there in the future and will recommend it to all my friends.
