We shared a tapas platter before a concert and really enjoyed the local beer, the "mocktail" and the friendly, unrushed service. Reasonably priced.

Booked for 17. Arrived to personalised menu with our chosen choices and drink choices. Great service and very good food. I had the gnocchi, which was very fresh and tasty! The dessert tapas platter was very sweet and lots to share! Highly recommend!

I came here several years ago for a work function and it had a set menu that time. This time I was glad to choose from the a la carte menu. As I had heard the deserts were rather good, had two smaller tapas plates for my mains - a salad and potatoes, both of which were delicious and extremely... More

Good location, quiet corner upstairs. Food good for all ages, good service. An easy meal out. We were the last ones in the restaurant and there was no pressure for us to leave.

Visited the restaurant with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The maître d was warm, chatty and attentive and really enhanced our experience.

Visited this highly recommend fine dining restaurant on a Sunday evening for an anniversary dinner. The advertised Sunday Roast was not available after being seated. I couldn't understand the foreign waiter and the food was overpriced, over cooked and a severely merger portion. Although not really late, around 9pm, the staff were packing up chairs and clearing up around us.... More

I went here for dinner recently with my husband and it's definately a place with a lively atmoshere. It was very busy (obviously a popular spot) and quite noisy. I think a large part of the clientele were the 'after-work' crowd. It was a Friday night and also the weekend of the rugby being in Wellington. We had the shared... More

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
