“Auckland's best dining experience”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

When you go to a restaurant outside your city or particulary in another country you want more than just good food and good service you want the total experience. If you're not trying to impress a client then you do what a restaurant with attitude like the O'Connell Street Bistro or the Grove in Auckland.
Cibo is in an old warehouse so there's plenty of space, good light and a great atmosphere. The food is really good, we had the whitebait omelette, the scallops and some sashimi followed by stake, the best lamb loin I have had and John dory. The staff actually know what they're doing so ask them what's good

“Top spot - why did we stay away so long?”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

As ever, the service at Cibo was impeccable. And this time so was the food. Oysters followed by the spicy Hapuka - terrific. The wine list is also exceptional. Cibo is certainly one of Auckland's best restaurants.

“Superb Parnell Restaurant!”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

I visited Cibo last night with some customers and was very impressed with the level of service, great decor and quality of the food (and presentation).

We lived in Parnell for 4 months last year and I didn't know it was there, in fact I don't think it's very well advertised as a guest couldn't find it and asked a very local business who didn't even know where it was! That said, once you know, it's very easy to find and get to..

Well worth the visit and I would recommend Cibo 100%.

“Great place for romantic dinner”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Dined here with my wife. The food and service is excellent. The owner Jeremy is a consumate professional and always ensures his customers are very well looked after (no I wasn't bribed to write review). Highly recommend Cibo as a place for a hot romantic date.
