My wife and I dined here on a recent visit to Auckland. We were very impressed. The food, ambience and service were all excellent.

We opted for the Express lunch menu plus a glass of their French Syrah plus coffee. Everything was excellent so we will definitely be back on our next visit to Auckland for dinner and a serious assault on their A La Carte menu.

The only minor drawback is that it is in an out of the way location in a very commercial area. There is parking provided which is vital if you are visiting for lunch as parking in the area is chaotic.

Our favourite restaurant in Auckland is the more conservative French Cafe. The atmosphere at Cibo is lighter with more emphasis on fun and flamboyance; the food and service however are taken very seriously.

Recommend heartily and will certainly be back.

Was in the area with the wife and circumstances allowed us to pop in for a surprise dinner. It had been a while. Well why? Service was great and food was superb. It can't be years before we go back there again.

A little while since we’ve had a city fine dining lunch and really wanted somewhere relaxing and attentive with superb food, for which Cibo really hit the spot. All 3 courses were very flavoursome and beautifully presented. Unusually the mains were just as imaginative and tasty as the starters. Great friendly service too. Sure we’ll be back when next in Auckland!

Came here with some friends after reading some reviews, and we were not disappointed. There is no issue with parking, and the service is just wonderful. I got the scallops for the entree, which were delicious, and so well cooked. Then I had the duck for the main, and it was probably the best duck i have ever eaten. For dessert, I had the brownie, which was so rich and sweet and not too hard or soft, it was perfect. My friends enjoyed their meals too also. I would definitely recommend Cibo to everyone, and I will certainly be back.

Cibo has been one of the best places to eat in Auckland for a long time but even by their own high standards this was a great evening. The food was stunning taste driven fare and the room had a real buzz going. Excellent!!
