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 and quality ingredients. It has urban roots, but rises above all the street noise.
Fortune, harmony, liberty are all part of the name, and Felix is with us more than ever.
Felix Kitchen & Bar is located in the building which used to house the Várkert Kiosk, which was designed by Miklós Ybl, the most influential Hungarian architect of the 19th century. Behind its breathtaking neo renaissance facade the building had an industrial function, as it supplied the royal palace with filtered drinking water.
When that technology became outdated the building began to take on new roles and was home to card clubs, dance rehearsals, cafés and the Várkert Casino. It was abandoned for almost a decade until it was finally fully renovated and took on a new mission in May 2018 as the Ybl Buda Creative House, with the goal to showcase high quality Hungarian and Asian contemporary art. The FELIX Kitchen & Bar, named after Miklós Ybl’s only son, Felix, evokes the legendary past in our contemporary times, to be the ideal gastronomical partner in this new endeavor.
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.
In 2021, we employed a real french big gun, the master chef Jeremy Cayron, who, after conquering Baku, Cairo, Bangkok, Berlin, Montreal and Wellington, is now here and is the new highlight of the gastronomic life of Budapest. Inspired by his experience in the top restaurants in the world, his aim is to give his guests a personal, eternal experience with his dishes.
We raised the stakes big time this year, we have on board with us the first hungarian sommelier who has made history - we are proud to present Tamás Czinki, our wine and champagne selection has fallen into the best hands.
We are also proud to present Petar Loncar on board, who is coming 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, is still responsible for the progressive bar and outstanding cocktails.
