We love Felix and often eat there after a concert at the Recital Hall at Angel place. The food is great, fresh oysters shucked on the premises, great variety of fish, the spatchcock is perfect, the suffle at the end of the meal is wonderful. The cost? Not cheap, but good value for what you get. So after I'm so... More

Situated in a trendy lane we found the Bistro very satisfying. We selected an outside table to avoid the internal high noise factor. Being outside provided us with the additional entertainment of watching a wonderful array of personalities entering a very popular night club. It reminded us of being in Hollywood. The food was excellent with a professionalism in its... More

Hi there, Thanks for dining with Felix. We just wanted to clarify that the credit card surcharge is 1.5%, not 15%. We're glad you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you back soon! Cheers, Felix Team More

We had flown into Sydney from New Zealand for the weekend and arranged to meet friends at the Ivy complex to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and dinner at Felix. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who suggested it was a 'top spot'. The Ivy complex is a group of restaurants and bars owned by one group (Ivy). When... More

Great décor, fancy lamps, food was very good quality and the service was professional. We ate on a Friday night and it was extremely busy and very noisy.

After leaving a terrible review for ananas i felt it was only fitting to say how much i love this french bistro. Not too fancy and the food is always a winner. Best french food in sydney if you ask me. Ive been several times and never had a bad meal. The cheese soufflé is always a favourite and their... More

My wife and I had a great dinner here. It was on a Friday night and we were lucky enough to get a table without booking as it was nearly full. We started with steak tartar and chicken pate, both were excellent and the portion sizes were very generous. We then shared the cote de boeuf with green beans which... More

Ate here with a group of friends on a Saturday evening. Started off well...we were early and were shown to the bar area where we ordered a couple of cocktails. Very nice by the way (try the Bloody Mary) after which we headed into the main restaurant. As we were a reasonable sized group we were only given a fixed... More

A lively restaurant set in a lane way, central Sydney serving fabulous food. You can eat in or outdoors. Staff is very chic and notices when your glass is empty or offers advice on the menu & specials. Definitely return & recommend to friends.

The prawn, quinoa and beet root salad I had was delicious. The profiteroles we had were terrible. No choux pastry - more like a biscuit. I was then told they were American style, not French. I was wondering what they were doing in a French restaurant. Wines totally overpriced and service very poor.

Both my wife and I have been here on numerous occasions and its is absolutely fantastic. The service, the atmosphere and of course the food is excellent. This is the best French Restaurant in Sydney and is a must for those who expect only the very best in French Cuisine.
