Location Details

ARIA's curvaceous dining room overlooks Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House with sweeping views of the harbour. At ARIA you are guaranteed to be presented with food that's as good as the view. Executive Chef, Joel Bickford is Aria’s first new Executive Chef in 19 years. Growing up on a property on the outskirts of a rural Blue Mountains town, Joel’s less-is-more approach to cooking is rooted in a lifelong connection to nature and a deep reverence for his ingredients and their unique regional qualities. Joel’s reinterpretation of the menu at Aria allows him to embrace a cooking style highlighting a superb variety of seasonal Australian ingredients. ARIA is constantly abuzz with foodies, celebrities and celebrity spotters and is the perfect restaurant to showcase the very best of Sydney dining to overseas visitors.
