Our second visit but this time with friends. Pricey but service, food and atmosphere were great. Our waitress was lovely and quite knowledgeable of what was on the menu. Shame we didn't ask for her name because I could have given her a shout out....More

Have been here three times. It has a lovely ambience and it's like a little bit of peace in the middle of town. The food is local produce with an international flavour (e.g. Barley risotto imbued with truffles). Good mix of meat and vegetables. Wine...More

Description
Zibibbo is situated in the historic Taranaki Street Police Station building in Central Wellington, and is co-owned / co-run by two award-winning chefs: Michelin Star rated Adam Newell and Glen Taylor. This iconic restaurant and tapas bar is renowned for its Mediterranean inspired cuisine. Relax in the lounge bar, sample a selection from Zibibbo’s famous tapas platter or a wood-smoked pizza while enjoying modern & classic cocktails and a wide selection of kiwi craft beers. For the discerning diner, the casual yet sophisticated restaurant upstairs presents fresh local ingredients prepared by some of New Zealand’s finest chefs, together with great service and an extensive wine list; all available at reasonable everyday Wellington prices. Private dining room also available for up to twenty people. We cater for all dietary requirements: Gluten free, dairy free, vegetarians, vegans, allergies, low FODMAP, and anything else you can think of! It’s great to know in advance, so let us know at the time of booking, but we can also cope if you just let us know at the time of ordering
