Expected much better

Disappointing in almost every way which is a real shame. After reading other reviews we just expected better. Very average service, great looking food but not so great flavours and pretty pricey for what you get. Won't go back.

We went and had a pizza and tapas here, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. The food was very good. The prices are expensive. but it is worth a try on a special occasion.

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.

My husband and I dined here last night night. The restaurant/bar is located in the old Taranaki Street Police Station.

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
