There's a reason cheese and wine is such a classic pairing. It's simple but sophisticated, and when the two elements are correctly matched they elevate one another, rounding out flavours and accentuating subtleties.

Sydneysiders are no strangers to a good glass of red or crumble of comté, and there's never been a better range of venues for sampling this timeless culinary combination.

Little Felix


Little Felix is more than a waiting room for French bistro Felix. Thanks to a Cognac and Cointreau-heavy drinks list and a bar piled high with towers of French cheese cut to order, it's a destination in its own right. It’s all set in an opulent, pale-emerald room replete with comfortable dark-toned leather lounges.
