It's not that easy to find this restaurant, it's in residential area. We used GPS to find it. It's in a very quiet street. It is an amazing restaurant, I like it very much, very special decoration. Greetings by handsome waiters, feeling great. My friend chose venison that she never had before and wanna try, however, it feels like beef.... More

My family and I dined at Cibo for my late 22nd birthday celebrations and it was absolutely magnificent. From the moment you walk in you know the place is somewhere special. The decor is beautiful - classy but without being stuffy or overdone - tables nicely spaced so you don't overhear your neighbours entire conversation as well as stunning, attentive... More

Menu was great and the food delicious but too many flavours and ingredients in each dish. Simpler would have been better. Rather expensive but very busy and good service and great atmosphere

Attentive, professional service and delicious food. The pork belly starter was tasty with a lovely blend of textures followed by the best NZ lamb - all beautifully presented with great timing and competent advice re wine choices etc. Pleasant buzzy atmosphere provided by the local monied set - very stylish.

The place was very nice. The service was good but slow. We had the lobster which was delicious. Unfortunately the stake tasted terrible and the Jaffa desert was dry and the chocolate to rich. The food did not meet expectations especially for the price.

Beautifully decorated restaurant with a luxe and welcoming atmosphere, excellent professional and friendly service and delicious mouth-wateringly good fine food. Well worth the taxi ride. A hidden gem we were very happy to discover. Though we only ate at one other restaurant on our trip, I'm sure this is one of Auckland's best restaurants. Book it, you'll love it.

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.
