Last minute booking on a busy Saturday night, the agreed to fit is us in early. Ordinary building in Parnell belied the impressive surroundings, helpful but unpretentious staff, excellent menu and wonderful ambience. I had the Coromandel scallops as the main, the good lady wife had the duck leg, and the 8 year old had the snapper fish of the day. All delicious, excellent presentation, and nicely sorted by the Wooing Tree Rose from Otago. On the face of it, not set up for kids but our little one will eat what we eat and the wait staff were very supportive and indulgent of our mini-adult. Price was not not at all outrageous compared to some Auckland restaurants with a far less impressive board of fare. We'll be back!

My partner loves fine dinning but often hates the pretentious wait staff. Cibo's staff are super friendly, funny and make the whole dinning experience perfect. The food is Devine, as is the wine list and cocktails. Cibo is perfect, the best dinning in Auckland hands down!

This was our first visit at Cibo and they surprised us with delicious meals, a great variety of wines and an excellent service. All dishes our group ordered were well presented and tasted exceptional. The ambiance and layout of the restaurant is very pleasant. The service was attentive and very friendly. The only downside was the music which was too loud and made our conversation a bit difficult.

Last week I took my partner to CIBO for a surprise anniversary dinner( In case you are wondering...the anniversary wasn't a surprise, just the dinner) The staff were all exceptional and the food divine as always. We had a lovely night and we definitely have all involved to thank.

A group of us dined here recently and had the 6 course degustation menu. The staff and the service are like nothing that I have ever experienced in a restaurant in Auckland.

The food was also amazing and each dish was explained in detail for us before we started each course.

Cibo has been around for many years and it never disappoints. This was my 4th visit and it just seems to get better and better. These guys are professional and clearly love what they do.

You feel like you are dining in their home - every single thing is taken care of, even the dial a driver to get home - because the wine was so very delicious!

Cant wait to return - no special occasion needed really but of course they would cater for that brilliantly too.
