FELIX Kitchen&Bar is more than just a restaurant: it is a full-fledged contemporary art space. It is traditional, yet modern, passionate about premium gastronomy, bar culture, quality ingredients and art.
Fortune, harmony, liberty are all part of the name, and Felix is with us more than ever.
AQVA ART COLLECTION
FELIX Kitchen&Bar named after Miklós Ybl’s only son, Felix, evokes the legendary past in our contemporary times.
The heart of the pumping station was the boiler room, formerly the exhibition space of the Ybl Buda Creative House. Today it bears the name AQVA and has evolved into a community scene that embraces both gastronomy and contemporary art.
The aim of our periodically renewed art exhibition is to reach and address a wider audience - not only experts and amateurs of art - through collaborations with various artists, gallerists and art collectors.
The current AQVA exhibition called Identities & Structures presents a selection of works by artists living and working in the Central and Eastern European region, and within the territory of the Visegrad Four countries, without any generational restrictions. This geopolitical circumstance determines both the artists’ preconceived notions and motives, as well as the aesthetic peculiarities of their mode of expression..
Our motto is: The Art of Sharing. As well as our food and our lives, art is equally a joy to share.
The art pieces on the walls are from Ilona Keserü, Klára Hosnedlová, Eva Koťátková, Paulina Olowska and Martin Lukáč. Artistic Coordination: Dóra Molnár, curator: Mónika Zsikla ( Q Contemporary)
All the classic favorites and exotic ingredients found on the FELIX Kitchen&Bar menu - but one thing is common: we don’t compromise in our quality.
Dishes are rooted in Hungarian tradition and follow international trends - in every meal of the day.
The exclusive ingredients are provided by vendors representing the highest quality standards, shipping their products from local farms but also from Parisian, Japanese and Australian producers. Our exceptional food selection is complemented by an outstanding bar offering more than 400 different liquors and almost 350 types of wine.
In FELIX's gastronomic mission, teamwork plays a key role - as independent work can be completed only by a really good team.
We welcomed Dániel Katona as our executive chef in 2022, who returned to Hungary after a long time for the sake of the task. Our chef studied in France and traveled extensively to gain as much experience as possible. He has worked in Spain for the past 6 years, three of them alongside one of the best local chefs, 6 Michelin-starred Jordi Cruz. It is not surprising, that in addition to the Hungarian and French bases, Dániel's cuisine is greatly influenced by the Mediterranean taste - so guests can expect quite special dishes from him.
We raised the stakes big time in 2021, we have the first hungarian sommelier who has made history on board with us - we were proud to present Tamás Czinki, our wine and champagne selection has fallen into the best hands.
We were also proud to present Petar Loncar on board, who came from the iconic Dorchester Hotel and the Arts Club London, and is responsible for the overall guest experience and the exceptional quality.
Finally, András Ódor, the professional representative of Black Swan, stayed responsible for the progressive bar and outstanding cocktails.
