We were a rather large party and were accommodated and served well. The food was superb and overall we were satisfied with the overall experience. I would recommend it without any concerns however check the account before finalising it, I did not, and found on checking the next day that I had been charged for two portions of couscous that...

Struggling to find another word than WOW. The staff were fantastic and very accommodating with our "specific needs" allowing us to occupy the private dining area. Food was sensational. A fantastic end to a busy week. Thank you.

We've been here a couple of times. Both times we've ordered entrees tapas, risotto. Yum. We've tried the fish, chicken, beef, pork belly, pizza dishes there. All were tasty but not memorable meaning we liked them but nothing really sticks out as outstanding. The service was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The interior was cozy. I'd probably return again one day.

We ate here with our clients when in Wellington and the service and food were fantastic. The menu sounded fantastic from start to finish and the hardest thing to do was to choose. We tried the tapas starter and this was great - highly recommended.

As a coeliac who needs to eat gluten free, I look for restaurants that make it easy for me. Zibibbo does just that, by marking on the menu items that either are GF or can be made GF with modification. The meal we had here was great, service was good and prices were reasonable. Recommended.

Couldn't fault the food. My medium steak was perfectly cooked and the sauce and accompaniments were all very tasty. I asked for a side of spinach (something I'd enjoyed in the past at Zibibbo) and they were happy to make it for me even though it wasn't on the menu. Dessert of pecan pie and chocolate mousse were perfect.

We went and had a pizza and tapas here, the atmosphere is nice and romantic. The food was very good. The prices are expensive. but it is worth a try on a special occasion.

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
