Zibibbo, we enjoyed you! The food was fantastic, staff were so friendly and attentive. Service was superb. We would definitely come back. We are a couple of happy customers. We had 😁 tapas, tiger prawn tortellini, and lamb 👌💜

We had an excellent meal at Zibibbo, good food & wine, great service, excellent value for money. There is a lovely bar area & we then had a private room booked for our group. It was the most enjoyable meal in Wellington on this trip.

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.

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
