The chef could be accused of trying too hard. Certainly the food is complex and blends a lot of flavours on one plate. Too much? maybe for some, but I found it a very enjoyable meal. The service was excellent and in no way pretentious. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Overall an exceptionally good dining experience.

Absolutely recommend this restaurant, food was stunning and well presented. Service was excellent, waiter perhaps a bit friendly, but auckland style I guess. We asked for Pinot Noir to be chilled as appropriate on a hot summer day, no problem and they checked we were happy with the result.

My Partner and I were recommended Cibo by some friends and we were really impressed. We were in the State in November and had to tip for service which we did grudgingly but I would happy tip our waiter at Cibo. The food is delicious and very filling, my partner had the Bali Duck for an entrée and I had... More

I went to Cibo twice before Christmas for lunch with two different groups. I couldn't fault their service or their food on either occasion. The taste sensations were extraordinary and I would recommend there to anyone. We didn't drink that much due to new drink driving limits and it was not too expensive. Try it you won't be disappointed

From the moment we entered until when we departed, this was a great experience . Our table was on the edge of the inside/outside so we had the best of both worlds. Nice ambience and fresh air. A good selection of wines complimented the meals. I enjoyed the sesame beef short rib entrée a lot but the 400gm Wakanui grain-fed... More

This was one of our best dinners in New Zealand, and definitely the best rack of lamb we had (One would expect eating great lamb anywhere in this country, but actually that is not the case) Food tends to be a bit over elaborated, trying to include in every dish a bit of everything, but somehow it works, at least...

We had a table for four for lunch. Started with cocktails and bubbles at the bar then moved to our table to which was beautifully set out. Drinks orders were taken and we had as much time we needed before we ordered our meals. Very hard to order - everything on the menu looked amazing! I ended up with two... More

Our meal was exquisite.started with a glass of champagne and I decided on Whitebait as a starter which was quite large but very tasty...husband had a dish called " nose to tail"" (pork) but delicate with a gorgeous...

Cibo, is a great restaurant for lunch or dinner. The service is always excellent, upbeat and attentive. Plenty of variety to choose from and quality of the meals including presentation are impressive. Very good wine selection at moderate prices. The waiters know their wines and right choice for meal selections ... At dinner time the lighting, water features and general... More
