Review : Bilson's.....The Revisit - CLOSED

Bilson's Restaurant

Radisson Plaza Hotel Sydney
27 O'Connell Street
Sydney NSW 2000

Phone:  8214 0496

Dinner Tues-Sat
6pm til late

After our recent dining experience at Bilson's, where we felt our expections were well & truly not met, we decide to try again to see if our second experience will bring those long held expectations to fruition.

This time dining on the L'Omnivore Petite menu ($145), we let all thoughts of our last visit go & start afresh.

Our dinner plays out as follows:

Garlic & Coconut amuse bouche

Egg Yolk, Cauliflower, Rye, Sprouts, Fresh Herbs, Vegemite

Foie Gras Chaud-Froid, Apple, Buckwheat, Broth

Chicken, Citrus & Wild Rice

Squab, baby beets, foie gras & cherry

Wagyu Shank, Kipflers & Watercress

Black Savourine Goat cheese, Brioche, Quince & Vanilla Tea

Chocolate, Orange & Saffron

Chocolate Box

Not only are our expectations met, they are blown out of the water. Everything is different this visit. The complexity of flavours & textures is stupendous.
The standout dishes would have to be: the egg yolk, foie gras & chicken. But really, every dish is outstanding.

Diego Muñoz is creating magic in the Bilson's kitchen.

Service is incredibly informed, professional & affable.

Finally we understand.

That squab looks amazing - I think I need to be there now.

Glad to hear your second visit improved your opinion - I think poor Tony Bilson has taken enough hits recently.

Wow, a revisit already? I'm impressed! The food created by the new head chef does look mighty fine, and I cannot wait to try the egg yolk .... :-)

All the food sounds lovely, but I am really taken by the look of the chocolate box. Glad the service met your expectations too.
