Outstanding service, great food and wine.

We really felt welcomed, greeted by name, allergies - which we had announced when booking - were known by all involved and our waitperson was helpful and flexible. The special whitebait was full of flavour and the beetroot salad beautifully presented. The wine list is extensive and well priced... read more

We really felt welcomed, greeted by name, allergies - which we had announced when booking - were known by all involved and our waitperson was helpful and flexible. The special whitebait was full of flavour and the beetroot salad beautifully presented. The wine list is extensive and well priced. We enjoyed a Kumeu River Chardonnay and a Villa Maria Merlot....

Cibo feels much the same as it did 15 years ago, except perhaps with less ad agency types and media broadcasters long-lunching there as was once the norm. Our small lunch group, early in the week, was one of only three tables dining. The food is still excellent, the wine list good and the decor still crisp and classy, although... More

Finally made it after years of meaning to try this place. Quirky fit out- mirrors, cherry blossoms etc were a bit odd. Saturday night, was very busy. The maitre'd who I assume was the owner was a bit arrogant and rude- dont know whether he was tired (because we had a late table of 9:45pm) or is his usual manner.... More

As someone who works in retail I really notice good/bad customer service. Cibo did not let me down! We were warmly greeted, our coats taken, offered drinks and shown the specials almost immediately. The best part was we were checked up on by what I presume was the owner/manager, so it felt very personal. I was also the only one... More

Had a work Christmas dinner on an evening that was extremely busy. Almost too busy with the tables very close together with not a lot of room to move between. From the moment you walk through the door you are treated like a very valued return guest. While the service is very attentive, it is very efficient with staff very... More

I live in Auckland so get to enjoy the increasing numbers of great restaurants. One thing that doesn't stand out much is the service. Not so at Cibo! Sure the food is fantastic, the wine list excellent, the setting pleasant, but it was the attentive , friendly, caring nature of the service team that really marked a great afternoon....highly recommend...

From the venue, the welcome, the staff, the menu, the wine, the enthusiasm, the knowledge - where does on stop. By far the best restaurant in Auckland at the moment, consistently excellent across all facets.

Had a work Christmas do. Restaurant was nicely done in an odd place. Service was superb, atmosphere was vibrant, food was nice but nothing special. Overall had a good time but probably won't come back for dinner.

From the minute we arrived we were treated like treasured guests. The service was amiable and efficient. We never waited for attention even though the restaurant was extremely busy. The staff gave us great tips on the food we were looking to order. The food was superior and delivered with interesting accompaniments. The Pate was exceptional. I would recommend if... More

From the moment we arrived (quite early), we were give a great welcome. The staff were so attentive without being intrusive. We were a mixed aged family of 16 but nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was especially good. Our set menu included fish and vegetarian which suited the three members of our family who are vegetarian.... More
