Cibo is a top quality restaurant with great friendly service, excellent food and a great wine list. It is not for the budget conscious. It is in more of industrial location set among old warehouses some of which have been converted into apartments in St Georges Bay Parnell. There is no bay there now, but it was close to Auckland's...

Our food was excellent, in taste, style and presentation. The service was however quite patchy - at time we felt forgotten. It was busy - almost a full house - but no excuses. Great atmosphere, but noisy.

It was a special occasion and we hadn't been to Cibo for a while. It was a Saturday night. The restaurant soon filled up, with the doors open, doubling their dining space. The ambience was lovely, although its now fall here and a bit chilly after dark, so I appreciated my jacket. Music was pitched at just the right level... More

The food is fabulous in taste and presentation. What I liked best was the combination of unusual flavours and textures that can really make a meal. The plate sizes were generous and the service was perfect always there when you wanted them without being over bearing, clearly the staff are highly trained to put the customer experience as a priority....

An easy choice when you need to guarantee your guests will be satisfied. Food and service very good. Would not classify it as romantic, more business and group style. Fantastic wait staff and warmth that is hard to beat. Has a nice culture to it, which immediately relaxes ..... and so follows an evening of good food. Thanks for a... More

Service was consistently great during the night, with every part of the meal, and each and every wine that came out... More

Every visit to Cibo is memorable, the superb food is a good starter but it doesn't end there - it's a great experience provided by a gaggle of waiters with a great sense of fun. Nothing is too much trouble, the service is consistently high and the food to die for. It's the best in Auckland, every time.

A popular indoor/outdoor restaurant setting with well presented modern cuisine. an interesting wine list and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Being just before Christmas it was very busy and although service remained good presentation of one or two dishes suffered (pre applied slip work had dried on the plates !). Prices on a par with its peers.....
