DETAILS

Set against the graceful luxury of the five-star Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney, Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar enjoys an exciting dining space with an invigorating Modern Australian menu to match. The order of the day is modern elegance with a touch of heritage history. The building that houses the restaurant dates back to the 1800s and was once home to the renowned Fairfax newspaper empire. The Bistro's name stands as a subtle homage to the dining room's illustrious predecessors. Although upmarket, the atmosphere of the venue is welcoming and its décor includes warm, woodland coloured furnishings and a comfortable balance between counter dining, lounge chairs, window seats and roomy tables.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

The artistic vision of Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar is carried through the rich hues of the décor and the sculptural presentation of the food. Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar has redesigned the standards of hotel restaurants and bars with a style concept unique to Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney. Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar could easily stand alone as a success without the support of the Radisson's impeccable reputation.

We enter through the tall double doors atop the Radisson Blu Hotel Sydney's stairs on Hunter Street and marvel at the high ceilings and open space. Despite its large scale, the venue has a comforting and warm feel. Natural light streams in through the high windows that date back to the buildings genesis in the 1800's. The warm shades of gold, bronze and cream of the decor are balanced by the dark mahogany tables and black polished tiles. The atmosphere is relaxed yet refined, with corporates coming for lunch meetings and couples enjoying a break from the city rush. As evening arrives, the tables are lined with candles and the atmosphere becomes a little more intimate. The service is friendly and attentive, and our waiter makes recommendations according to our preferences. Each dish is served as a masterpiece of presentation, and the crisp colours display the freshness and quality of the produce. The thyme roasted quail breast of the entrée is balanced atop a sweet French shallot tart encased in thin pastry. The symmetrical balance of the dish makes it an artwork on its porcelain plate canvas. For main, the roasted barramundi is dressed in cauliflower puree with scallops arranged delicately on top. The vanilla panna cotta dessert is layered with strawberry Chianti and basil sugar sauce. Tiny seeds of vanilla and strawberry burst with sweetness in the mouth. Every detail of the restaurant menu has been carefully selected to carry the artistic vision through fresh flavours that are delicately balanced and harmonious. Bistro Fax Restaurant & Bar provides dining that is influenced by its classic style in cuisine and decor.
