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.
It was another family outing when my daughters joined me during Deepawali holidays. This was excellent choice of my daughter with excellent cuisine to try with for a Vegetarian family
This has a great food. The service is up to the mark and ambiance is lovely. We always love to be here to have nice food.
That there can be a slight difference in food and service quality in different restaurants of the same group is to be expected. One has been a regular of the restaurant in the Garden of Five Senses where both the food and service have always been exceptional and one had come here for lunch in a large family with a similar expectation. The restaurant was fairly quiet but in spite of that the servers were slow and disinterested. The fig and goat cheeses salads we ordered were under seasoned while the bruschetta had so much salt that it was in edible . The filo parcels were soggy and there was no seasoning in the filling. The pastas ranged from undercooked ( raw) ravioli to sea food linguini that had no salt and enough chilli flakes to pass off for Indian masala food. Both dishes were sent back. When I complained about the deficiency the duty manager confided that their executive chef was on leave but he would report the matter when he returned and we could look forward to a proper meal the next time round. The final icing though was the bill that included both the returned in edible pasta dishes. When I protested the manager told me that they had removed the portion of fries and sprite we had ordered for my grand daughter as a goodwill gesture ! Come on guys you need to pull up your socks .. if your chef is on leave and the stand in isn’t up to the mark then warn your patrons that they are unlikely to get their money’s worth!
The place is awesome. The food was delicious and the service was caring. Our server was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. The ambience was to die for. Lovely weather and set up. Would definitely come back
I can only recommend this place. I have been traveling through India for a while and I wanted to eat somewhere were my tastebuds would not be over stimulated. Both the Indian and Western dishes were perfect, and refined. Definitely worth the price.
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.
