Lunch Monday-Friday, dinner Monday-Saturday. $$$

Finalist, Peugeot People’s Choice award for Auckland’s favourite dish: salted caramel pavlova


Parnell dining may have been up and then down and possibly is now on the way up again, but through it all, always up, there has been Cibo. They do something remarkably difficult here, yet they make it look easy.

Chef Kate Fay mixes European and Asian flavours to create a wonderful fusion, the dashing Jeremy Turner runs a team of floor staff who manage to be both flamboyant and impeccable, and the whole place exudes an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. Opposites, seamlessly merged. The message is: you deserve it.

A favourite dish: salted caramel pavlova with toffee peanut brittle & chocolate dust.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
