Fio had been on list of target restaurants for a long time, somehow I didn’t get time to visit this place. I happily accepted when I received invite for their chill and grill festival. Fio is located inside the garden of five senses, in said-ul-jab, beautifully designed park. I have been to garden of five senses couple of times with my photography group and have done several photo walks.
Fio has always been considered as one of the most romantic place in Delhi/NCR and they fully deserve it. Beautifully designed restaurant, greeneries around, with open sitting arrangement, provides a remarkable dining experience. Apart from AL fresco, they have a nice dining area inside the restaurant as well. The menu, developed by Chef Pawan is extremely inviting and they serve Indian as well as Italian cuisine
We had a very refreshing watermelon martini and it was a great start to the evening. We started with Phylo Tazza – Caramelized onion, goat cheese and mushroom, great combination and the phylo cup was crispy and flaky. Tapenade glazed chicken was highly recommended by chef and yes he was right. Despite being non-chicken fan I loved the dish. Mediterranean-inspired dish that was perfectly cooked, moist and it’s combination with molasses and red wine was superb! Cheese potato, perfectly baked and was amazingly delicious. Innovative and interesting was Gandheri kebab, another brilliant chicken starter presented like chuski (shaved ice) with sugarcane sticks.
For the main course we decided to sit inside and enjoy. We had char grilled sea bass, grilled polenta streak, pork belly and char grilled chicken legs. Char grilled chicken legs were just brilliant. One of the best grilled chickens cooked to perfection, crispy skin and moist and juicy chicken inside. It’s highly recommended .Pork belly too was delicious and complemented well with orange sauce. Char grilled sea bass too was well cooked and fish was flaky and delicious. Being a hard-core non-vegetarian I enjoyed the grilled polenta steak.
I must say that we had a great evening, amazing lip smacking food and equally brilliant cocktails followed by top class service. Fio is a place where I would love to come back time and again.
