Assistant Sommelier | Felix

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.
