Even though Felix is only a short walk across Hyde Park for us, the rain came down in such sheets that we took a taxi. From a wet miserable early evening outside, we walked into a delightful (nearly full) restaurant with a wall to wall choice of wines from around the world.
Felix has developed an atmosphere that belies its age as it has not been around that long! It has this real home feel upon entry and staff service is always there just before you like to ask for it. "Attentive without hovering" just sharp!
As very regular travellers to France (on our way again for 6 weeks tomorrow) this restaurant with its French style fit out and service levels is the best example of what French can do in Australia and was an excellent last evening in Sydney before we are back again in South France.
We had oysters (cold without any toppings) the lamb rack, medium rare/rare and the plate was not just for looks! This was a nice meal with side of vegetables as part of it. The desert of Profiteroles was too much for me after a bottle of beautiful (of-course French) Pinot and my wife ended up with my portion of the ice cream that was part of the desert.
Everything about this place asks you to go back and become a regular. To be able to say that about a restaurant in Sydney is a real admiration to the high standards of food AND service.
