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

For me a big YES. A quiet early Tuesday night just after Wellington on a Plate. While the service was a little missing at times due to the waitress being downstairs at the beginning and end of our meal it was a great meal. The Tapa's plate was a real highlight - a great variety of tasty dishes, they complimented... More

had a group dinner here last week and found the experience very average. Food was forgettable and service was overly familiar. Wgtn has much better places, at a better price to offer.

Have been there on Friday nights and it seems to me very average with mains in the $30's and Pizza for $24. Waitress was rather dozy first forgetting the beer then completely forgetting the chilly oil. I just dont think their mains are worth $30's as rather bland. Although the Pizza was fairly good.Good for meeting for a drink. Not... More

Recently returned back to Zibbibo for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Our waiter was faultless, very attentive. Food was delicious and full of flavour. It is great to know you are going out for great food and service.
