The perfect location for your function

During the wedding season the restaurant is regularly booked for receptions, but has also been utilised for the ceremony itself. The private courtyard and surrounding fishpond create tranquil and picturesque setting essential for calm, memorable occasions.

Corporate presentations, product releases, cocktail parties - we've seen it all.

Anniversaries and birthdays that are fondly (if somewhat blurrily) remembered have been arranged and catered for, with people returning time and time again. All successful functions can be traced back to good planning.

Matching desires with the realities, and capabilities of the restaurant is a practiced skill.

Knowledge of the abilities of the floor staff and the kitchen's capacity and resources have been refined over the years to allow for the precise planning and successful outcome of events held at Cibo.

Accommodating large groups

Numbers depend greatly on the weather and the season. Up to 120 guests may be seated in the covered courtyard outside, and 80 for indoor functions. Rates are negotiable, depending on the type and size of the function.
