Fio Cookhouse may not be located in a manicured green sprawl like its sibling, Fio Country Kitchen and Bar, but it makes up for this loss by being located in a terraced garden that shields it from the vibrations of the Nehru Place Metro Station and gives it a sense of being a private island as well. And it transforms seamlessly from being a cool and casual fine-dining restaurant in the day to a high-octane party zone at night. Yet, it doesn't let one avatar overshadow its overall character – here is a restaurant that takes its food as seriously as its partying spirit. The menu is part-Italian, part-North Indian, and its Chefs take fish seriously (you know it when you ask for Fio's signature Olive Crusted Rawas and the Mahi Kasundi Tikka). Our favourites extend from Fio's Deconstructed Caesar's Salad (where roasted pumpkin lends the classic a zesty twist) and the pizzas (especially the one with smoked salmon, camembert cheese and chives) to Ananas Glazed Pork Ribs and Butter Beans, Mushroom and Spinach Roesti, to the unmissable Viennese Choco Raspberry Mousse and Tiramisu Jar.
My husband and I went in for dinner one evening last week. We had to move tables as the staff kept leaving the outside door open letting in cold air (evening temp here is 50F presently). We were then seated near the kitchen side of the restaurant which was mildly better. They brought my drink over and we ordered an appetizer while we browsed the menu. Bread was brought to the table. A few minutes later a MOUSE popped its head onto the table looking at the bread!! Our table was up against a bookshelf type unit that was on top of a cabinet and the mouse had crawled out from between the two RIGHT ONTO THE TABLE!! It ran away when I reacted in fright. I called the waitress over to complain about this scare. She seemed very nonchalant and apologized. I asked for the bill for our drink and appetizer so we could leave. She was extremely slow with this. 10 minutes later I had to ask again and also asked for the manager ( who I thought would have come over to address my concern long before my having to ask). He apologized and said the pest control company had been there yesterday so this was a surprise to him. I just wonder what state their kitchen is in for this type of problem.Regardless, my bill came we charged it to my credit card and left. On reviewing the receipt they had charged me $31 for a cosmopolitan drink, water and an appetizer of ribs!!! More than the menu stated just to add insult to injury.Think twice before eating here.
Very nice ambience and excellent food in just walking distance from Eros Hotel Nehru Place. Great service as well.
Ambience and food is just excellent. Staff is very prompt and helpful. The Friday evening live band is very good but VERY LOUD -so much that you can't hear what the person sitting next to you is saying. Really brings down the dining experience as the sound echoes so much that you can barely sit there without getting a headache.
I visited Fio Cookhouse for lunch and was so happy to see it lived up to expectations. The quality of service and food was excellent. The restaurant was clean and the ambiance was great. A shout-out to Arjun (waiter) who led the staff with great service, attention to customer needs and kindness.
The drinks, music, food and service were simply superb. Thanks to the manager, Mithun and his team. Book a table, the place can get busy. The choice in the menu is widespread. Each item delicious, we were a table of 12, so really enjoyed the variety. A must go to place.

Al fresco dining has caught on Delhi like fire. The residents are preferring to dine outdoor than spending time cooped up inside four walls. The idea of eating under awning of stars and breathing in the crisp smell of trees has taken a root in the society. FIO cookhouse & bar at Epicuria at Nehru place is one such paradise. Serene place and lighted pebbled pathway leading to your seats leaves a sense of mystical romance. Hand in hand as you walk down the trail with your partner builds anticipation for the surprises to come. As you come to the seating expanse the sight that meets your eyes is unbelievable. Wooden tables dotted all over the courtyard prettily are lighted with dim candles. Overhead strings of fairy lights twinkle away adding to the romance.
The staff approaches and lead you to your seats, handing the menu in a courteous way. Soups and salad section hosts wonderful combinations. Mushroom & thyme, Fio casa salad, pollo pomello salad, minestrone pimentos soup are all delicious. Between the courses bread basket is accessible to keep you occupied. The starters like country bruschetta, chilli garlic butter prawns, polenta crusted calamari, phylo tazza are readily cooked in the kitchen. If Italian is the way you want to go then various pizzas and pastas are on the menu. Take advantage of little gnocchi which are tiny pillows of potato tossed with sun dried tomatoes, pesto and nuts. By the time main course is ordered you are heady with expectation. The restaurant serves contemporary cuisine so Ananas glazed pork chops are recommended. Vegetarians can opt for roesti primavera as it is too yummy with crisp potato pancake and exotic vegetables. For modern indian food rajmah ki gilauti and kosha murg offers lot of potential. Violet cheesecake jar is the final finishing touch to a superb meal. Fresh baked 15 min cake has earned lot of praises too.
All in all FIO cookhouse is a moderately expensive restaurant yet very much in demand. On lazy winter days the open courtyard seems attractive for the customers. So make a booking before visiting. This place is meant for both family and intimate dinners. Itâ€™s large enough to organise both the parties at the same time without losing its peacefulness.
