We went here a couple of weeks ago for a night out just before Christmas. It was a pretty busy night, which usually indicates good food but potentially slow service. It was absolutely NOT that, we had incredible waiters who could advise on choices for food and wine. We ordered the tasting platter to start which is fantastic and quite... More

This place was organised for us as we are from out of town. The food was well done, service people were knowledgeable and helpful. We were there new year's eve and to me was over priced. It was a set menu at $90 but if you wanted sides they were extra.Stat holiday staff rates would not have come into it... More

My husband and I dined here last night night. The restaurant/bar is located in the old Taranaki Street Police Station. The character of the building is evident upon entering and has been outfitted very stylishly. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable whilst remaining friendly and approachable. Gareth and the other wait staff were very attentive and made our evening... More

My hubby and I had originally decided that dinner would be had at our favourite tapas bar "Havana". We happened to walk past Zibbibo in the afternoon on our way back to our hotel. We decided to give this place a try instead. We made our booking online then turned up for our 8pm reservation. We were greeted at the... More

Service was delightful, attentive yet discreet. Food was superb, every morsel enjoyed. Quiet, very comfortable, a lovely place to relax and enjoy lunch on a busy week day. We all enjoyed the whole experience and shall certainly repeat it.

Very well-executed, delicious food. Emphasis on letting ingredients shine. Presentation is not too fussy but ingredient and flavour choices are inspired. Their special is a tapas sharing plate for two, with 9 items all exquisitely prepared and presented. Nicely balanced wine list. Service is friendly and efficient. Upmarket, well proportioned and modern space. Restaurant is upstairs with bar downstairs, which... More

From the moment we arrived and was greeted warmly and professionally I knew we were going to have a good night. Our waiter Gareth was amazing and added to the night. We shared the tapas platter to wet the taste buds and headed into the mains of beef fillet, mushrooms with polenta and an array of side dishes. We finished... More

My husband and I dined here recently while visiting Wellington. We had a grab1 voucher which included a tapa platter and wood fired pizza. The tapa platter was very nice but not really what we were expecting, the pictures showed very different foods, we mainly got things to spread on bread. The pizza we designed ourselves and was delicious, great... More

There was nothing I could fault about the meal I had at Zibibbo recently. There was a large group of us and we started with drinks in the lounge area. The atmosphere is very relaxing and there is so much to choose from in regards to drinks. You are able to order any cocktail you like - even if it... More
