With more than 20 years’ experience in Australia and in London with Gordon Ramsay, Nathan Johnson has established Felix as a bistro with great food. Located in a back lane, just off George Street in the CBD, Felix is popular with businesspeople who prefer a relaxed bistro-style restaurant with that special ‘je ne sais quoi’. Maybe it’s the real Parisian subway tiles on the wall or the waiters in traditional long aprons?
The extensive menu offers some typical French dishes and plenty of local favourites. The popular twice-baked gruyère soufflé with onion puree is a postcard from France. With an oyster and seafood counter as a major focal point, only the freshest seafood is served at Felix. The roasted Cone Bay barramundi comes with a real crisp skin and is served with a green bean and black olive salad.
PSST! The tempting Felix prix fixe menu, at $60 for three courses, is still available from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
