Assistant Restaurant Manager | Felix

Merivale is still on the lookout for top talent to join Sydney’s best hospitality venues. We have amazing opportunities across the business at multiple levels and in all venues from our pubs to hatted restaurants. This is an exciting time to be part of the Merivale family as we continue to grow, with new openings coming online in the next few months. We are actively recruiting for our venues and want to hear from you today! 



The Venue


Located in the centre of Sydney, tucked away in Ash Street, you'll feel like you've stumbled into a little cobble-stone back street of des Champs- Élysées, Paris. Every detail of Felix has been considered - from the imported French chandeliers, to parisian subway tiles and the beautiful pewter bar. Our ambiance is matched by attentive service and classic French fare, delivered with precision. 


Head chef Nathan Johnson has created a produce-driven menu of divine food; think chicken liver pâté, gruyère soufflé and steak frites. The seafood bar is a sight to behold- piled with prawns, oysters, lobsters and Moreton Bay bugs. And the wine list, crafted by Franck Moreau, Merivale’s master sommelier, perfectly complements the menu.



The Role


A rare and exciting opportunity has become available to join Felix as an Assistant Restaurant Manager. We are looking for someone driven and motivated, focused on driving business performance, who can build, develop and lead a high performing team, and most importantly someone who has a passion for creating memorable guest experiences that are second to none. As an Assistant Restaurant Manager, you will be supporting all the duties of the Restaurant Manager as well as motivating and driving the venue to success.
