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

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

We had an amazingly special wedding dinner in Cibo before our pub wedding down the road. We were treated to incredible food and amazing service! The Cibo staff really were wonderful and made the meal so memorable. Thanks Cibo!! We will see you again! Dave & Jess

Cibo is in an industrial style building in Parnell. It is small and cozy. We enjoyed excellent service from all the staff. Had the Nose to Tail entree--very unique. Venison was best I had every eaten.

Been to cibo's many times over the last few years, it's expensive but like most things in life you get what you pay for. It's one of those few places where they put on a show (metaphorically). In other words the service is impeccable.

"New York Warehousy/Hip"....my thoughts as we were led to our "private booth" with crytsal candelabra, crisp white linen tablecloth and napkins. "This is going to be fantastic" I thought. It was our son's significant birthday this particular evening, and he, being the Bar Manager on duty, invited us to join him and eat dinner (pre-chosen by him). The Salt crusted... More
