The mission

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)

 

Gastronomy

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.

The team

Teamwork plays the main role in FELIX's gastronomic mission - all the teams from Guest relations and reservations, Events, Bar and Wine, Restaurant service work seamlessly in order to create that perfect guest journey. 

 

Our executive chef is Dániel Katona. He studied in France and worked in Spain for 6 years, three of which was next to Jordi Cruz, 6 Michelin stars spanish superstar chef. In addition to the Hungarian and French basics, Dániel's cuisine was greatly influenced by the Mediterranean flavor, which can be felt on our constantly renewed menus.

FELIX’s wine director is Tamás Czinki, the first Hungarian Master Sommelier who made history. Our wine, sparkling wine and champagne selection fell into the best hands, and our wine list was even awarded two glasses by the American WINE Spectator this year.

 

The bar team is led by bar manager Tibor Bém, who after working at Galvin La Chapelle in London, Arts Club and Caesars Palace in Dubai, is now showing his skills with us. Our mixologist Attila Richard Oláh is also a defining figure of the Budapest bar life and cocktail culture.

 

The Director of Operations  in  FELIX is Petar Loncar,  who joined our venue after leading the restaurants and events in  the iconic Dorchester Hotel and Arts Club London, so that we await our guests with even greater expertise and preparation, representing high gastronomic quality and customer experience is seamless. 

 

Attention to detail and focus to innovation and guest journey is in Felix DNA and every day we are finding new ways to impress and entertain our valued guests.
