Cibo

Smart Dining—Contemporary/Asian fusion

Cibo has been there, tucked away in an old chocolate factory, for years, and it’s well loved by many for myriad reasons, starting with the service. It is a sweet anomaly of a restaurant, decorated with black hand mirrors, cherry- blossom wallpaper and elaborate light fittings. It defies trends and remains popular because a meal here is a throwback to old-world charm and generosity. This is a place where the staff open doors for you, and it doesn’t feel forced. Chef Kate Fay is still turning out beautiful dishes that fuse flavours from many different nations, the wine list is still extensive and well considered, and yet it’s the people and the feeling of warmth, familiarity and fun they bring that keeps us coming back.
