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

We had a great meal here with excellent service, and would definitely recommend trying this place. The bar downstairs has a great atmosphere - great for a pre-dinner cocktail or a post-meal dram.

Had to wait an hour for our starters tonight which has put me off. When the food came it was great. Had the risotto for starters, steak for main and the yummy apple crumble. The food was lovely but the service left a lot to be desired.

We went to Zibibbo having been told great things about their food - so had high expectations. Unfortunately they didn't live up to reputation on our visit for fine dining. We had a range of appetizers and mains with sides - but the pizza was our favourite. We found it highly priced. If you go for good pizza you'll be happy. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant, but the service was a little slow.

As is popular with others we shared the Tapas platter for two which was pretty delicious, then had separate desserts. We had dinner here before heading to a show at the St James theatre and made the staff aware of this. They kept this in mind and ensured that we were finished with our meal with enough time to make it to our show. Overall a pretty nice dining experience although certainly on the pricier side of things.
