We were in Wellington on Christmas day and struggled to find any attractions open. Zibibbo offered a Christmas Dinner so we booked! It was definitely pricey. The dinner and drinks for two cost us over $400 (nzd). I'm not sure how the regular season prices compare. However, the food was incredible. We loved every minute and really felt we got... More

Recently my partner and I were fortunate enough to be able to attend a 6 course set menu feast at Zibibbo's. They host events like this a couple of times a year, where they really display how good they are. With a meal ranging from a charcuterie board to suckling pig, and with beef tartare and a roquefort cheesecake mixed... More

The food was all amazing and cooked perfectly, nothing to fault, my partner and I agreed it was one of the best meals we have had. The service was great - fast and polite, and the cocktails are impressive -... More

We've had good food and service before, but this time it was mediocre food, high prices, and slow service. Nope.

I booked for 7 persons and as it was a special occasion I asked for a table away from the kitchen as it can be a little noisy. We were away around the corner which was preferred except that we were forgotten!The service was non existent,and the food arrived Luke warm...The staff were casual and lacked lustre. This was my...

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.

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
