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.

I am a fan of Felix. For a few short hours you can dream you're back in a Parisian bistro. There is not a dish I enjoy more (anywhere) than their mandarin soufflé - it is cooked to perfection! Mains and entrees are beautiful too with a very strong wine list. Alas, Felix does have the problem of being very noisy at times but its forgivable for the ambience. Do not take your granny here if she is hard of hearing.

This place is cool and chic! Probably more impressive setting for a bistro than anywhere in Paris and on a par with Baltazar in Soho! Great wine list, exceptional 1er cru burgundy by the glass and first class steak, duck, chicken, barramundi, not the mention the desserts! We went early and the place was still deserted when we left. Wonderful bar and fresh shellfish bar, nothing close in Melbourne!

A great night, beautiful meal and atmosphere however an overbearing waiter bawled out a new waiter in front of our table - very poor and unprofessional.

Fairly classical french bistro, with great atmosphere. All dishes well executed. The steak frites is a beauty. Extensive range of wines by the glass, except not many bubbles. Wines quickly go stratospheric. All up terrific package.Shares laneway atmosphere with China Lane (good chinese/asian option)

I really enjoyed the room and our waiter was fantastic on this fine night. Once the meals arrived, service dropped and we dealt somewhat rushed. Not sure if we will return
