Description: Nestled in Sydney's Ash Street laneway, this elegant bistro’s classic French fare is perfectly matched by an extensive wine list. Felix is affectionately designed as a romantic homage to the quintessential French brasserie. Diners are charmed by its many authentic touches; like walls featuring real Parisian subway tiles, imported French chandeliers, a beautiful pewter bar and food delivered by waiters in traditional long-aprons.

“Very Authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very realistically French - one could be in a Paris brasserie!

Deliicious food and very friendly and a great wine-list.

Must book - difficult to get into without!

“Typical Parisian Brasserie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We are in the evening with friends and family and enjoyed it. I had a chicken and egg salad and steak frites which were both good. We had some nice red wine and the service was good. It really did feel like I was in Paris.

“A little piece of Paris”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Stepping into the restaurant was like being immediately transported to a Parisian bistro. Great atmosphere!

We had the prixe fix menu, which only operates until 6.30pm. The choices on the menu were great and it was really reasonably priced. For those prices, who could complain?

“Great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant is in the heart of sydney in the Ivy complex. Nice food, interesting location however we found the noise overwhelming. Not a good choice if talking is the aim of the dinner!

“Great place for a business lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Eaten at Felix Bistro twice this month for business lunches. Very professional service, excellent menu and wine list with daily specials.

I can recommend the spatchcock, and any fish dish which comes perfectly cooked and presented. Service is quite quick which is great on a working day.

Had an outside table last time under a very effective heater. Good atmosphere, almost perfectly recreating the feeling of a Parisienne Bistro.

Currently my favourite place for lunch in the Sydney CBD.
