Delicious mains, fantastic service

Had dinner at Zibibo In August. Our food was generally high standard - we had duck breast and pork belly for mains and they were both really delicious. Portions are adequate, but not huge. A big man would be looking round for more, I think. The little touches of gels, herbs, blobs of cheese... read more

Early Thursday night dinner. Enjoyed a quiet wine with colleague and then delicious lamb rump....ordered side of salad which just didn't compare to the quality of the main dish...and wasn't necessary as good choice vegetables on main. Ambience is nice for couples or groups. Average $$ for dining in Wellington. Service was the let down...the guy looked like he wanted... More

It's been 2 years since I was last here and I am not sure why so long. Always excellent choice for groups. Good food, good price, good service. Zibibbo is reliable - I have never been disappointed with any meal I have had here. The bar is also a good spot for a drink, a bit dark but comfortable with... More

Went with a work group and while there was a lot of fun and laughter this is not quite fine dining. It's OK but on the average side of OK. We had a set menu for the group. Breads were nice and desert tapa's were nice and interesting and visually pleasing. 2 things let the meal down for me. Firstly... More

One of the best meals ive had in Wellington - the food was seriously delicious! The starter platter was lovely, as was the duck and pork we had for main. Good service and great food!

Had great service from UK lass! Attentive and knew menu. Food was good but slightly let down by arriving cool as opposed hot. Drinks a little slow.

My husband and I decided on Zibibbo for a date night. Amazing service, amazing food, amazing night. The servings are large, so I made sure that I had room for a dessert tapas to share. It's a platter of 5 mini desserts plus 5 bite size treats. My favourite were the mini ice creams in mini cones - awesomely cute.... More

We were a rather large party and were accommodated and served well. The food was superb and overall we were satisfied with the overall experience. I would recommend it without any concerns however check the account before finalising it, I did not, and found on checking the next day that I had been charged for two portions of couscous that...
