I have been going to Sylvia's Restaurant and Wine Bar with my family for the last few years. What a hidden Gem! The food is amazing, the staff are delightful and it is located 5 minutes from home! Everyone I talk to locally about Sylvia's have no idea it's even there - and everyone I have referred is now a regular returning customer like myself. Do yourself a favour and try it for yourself - you won't be disappointed!

Thank you, thank you for your most welcome review. Shangri la is well known for the fabulous weddings and functions over the past 60 years and perhaps our lovely locals can't get their head around the fact that we can now also offer first class accommodation as well as a fine restaurant. We are entering into our 10th year of operating Sylvia's Restaurant and thank you for spreading the news. We value your business and appreciate your review.

We had an amazing dinner here - food and wine degustation that was absolutely out of this world. The chefs did an amazing job, as did all the wait staff. It was a very memorable evening.

Thank Marion W

We were staying at Manly visiting family and had been searching for good food without travelling to Brisbane. By chance saw this place on TA. The food was absolutely brilliant, the best we had eaten in 6 weeks away. This coupled to good service made the evening special. A must for real foodies.

Recently Stayed in Brisbane for a Job Interview. Booked a room at the Shangri-La Gardens (unreal place too) and just walked from our room to the Restaurant for dinner as it was within the Hotel location. Was greeted by all Staff that were at the entrance and also the manager/own I believe. And staff continued with their great service for the whole time we were there.

The moment we walked in we were amazed at how lovely everything was. Perfect amount of customers and not over crowded, so a fantastic atmosphere.
And the food....omg....it was the perfect portion size and tasted unreal. 20mins was the longest we waited for our food to arrive.

Will defiantly be back in the future!

Thank you for you most welcome comments regarding your experience in Sylvia's. My humblest apologies for not responding before this, however I have only discovered the "Sylvia's Restaurant etc" section of the Tripadvisor reviews, only responding to those on Shangri-la Gardens. Will check our reviews for the restaurant on a regular basis in future.
Apologies and thank you once again

This was our fourth time at Sylvia's. The first was with a Living Social voucher and we were so impressed that we returned and, on each occasion, we were equally pleased with the quality of the food and service as well as the ambiance.The staff are pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable and prices reasonable for this level of restaurant. The wine list is not extensive but covers most tastes and, again, prices are fair.The suburban situation in the Shangrila Gardens motel on Wynnum Road is not where you would normally expect to find a restaurant of this quality but the overall dining experience certainly compares very well with some of the up market Brisbane restaurants. The Manageress remarked to me that her clientele are more visitors than locals which is a pity as I know of no other restaurant of this quality in either Wynnum or Manly. Well worth a try.
