perhaps too much choice but the food was ok and the service was good. A big place so quite noisy and there was live music too. The Italian restaurant on Fishermans Wharf is better.

The food was much much better than it was before. The chicken and pork chop was delicious and juicy. I enjoyed the very good Italian wine.They have a patio and have first come first serve to be seated. We had reservations and was seated early which we were glad so we could browse the area and the RM auctions.

Great food and quick service. Was pleasantly surprised that this was more casual than we would have guessed from their webpage.

We just had dinner here with 8 other friends. It is conveniently located in front of the portola hotel. The service was very good, our waiter was around us at all times. The Caesar salad was delicious, fresh lettuce and good dressing. The fresh mozzarella salad had very bad tomatoes which should not be the case at this time of... More

Our Hotel recommended for us to go here as it was a place to locals like to go to. It was great. We had gnocchi and pizza which were both lovely. The portion sizes were very good. Excellent value for money. The Live band was great. A lot of people got up dancing. Even if you don't want to go... More

The restaurant was quiet when we went in (around 7pm) but soon got busy, the jazz music playing was excellent and gave a nice atmosphere. Efficient staff and food very good. My only complaint was that it was a cool evening and we had a table not too far from the door and this meant we were quite cold, but... More

Excellent atmosphere and the location is very convenient as it is across the street from the Monterey Bay Wharf. The waiters were out of this world! Great and friendly personalities offering suggestions and making sure your stay was top-shelf. Web have been dining at Cibos for many years and have never been disappointed

We stumbled on this place and decided to give it a try after not seeing anything we liked on the wharf. It was a good decision. The food is excellent, I had the ravioli and my wife had the pasta with salmon, both were superb. Service was attentive without being over the top. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly -... More
