Modern Australian


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.

My husband and I dined at Aria for my husband's 60th birthday.. (a gift voucher from our 3 sons). Service was exceptional, which is what we expected. We chose the 4 course dinner with many choices from each course. The food was absolutely delicious. Each dish was described to us when served - we enjoyed every course!! Also enjoyed the wine. The complimentary dessert plate was a great finish to our dinner. Highly recommend, wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.

Wow! That is one word I kept telling myself on every bite. The food is excellent, the ambiance is perfect and staff is absolutely the best! Aria made our special night a real "Special Night" every minute spent was such an experience! Food is absolutely amazing, every bite is full of flavor and you would want to keep that flavor in your mouth! Scallops and Pork Belly as Entree' are cooked perfectly! The wine chosen for us matches perfectly to my beef and my partner's chicken! The most amazing mashed potatoes I have ever tried, I found in Aria! A must order with your main course! Finally, we made it through dessert. We ordered the Mango Souffle and Panacotta, we are so surprised to have "Happy Anniversary" written on our dessert plates! What a lovely gesture that made our night such an experience! And by the way, desserts are the BOMB! I'm in love with the whole caramelized souffle! Mouth watering strawberries in our panacotta! I have no idea what the below reviews have experienced, I am beginning to think they might have went to a different resto, because this is such an amazing place to be from top to finish!
