Aware that their regular weekday patrons are often crunched for time, Cibo are excited to offer a faster, yet still highly decadent dining experience – the Cibo Express Lunch.

Available 12noon – 4pm weekdays until early November, their 45 minute Express Lunch Menu will “delight the taste buds and provide a perfect break in the work day”. For those who have a little more time up their sleeve, the revered Cibo full lunch menu will also be available daily.

Cibo Maitre d’ Jeremy Turner and Chef Kate Fay are excited to expand their dining experience to ensure that regardless of the day of the week, “we are able to offer a premium dining experience whilst respect our patron’s busy lifestyle and work commitments”.
