Sylvia's Restaurant & Wine Bar

Sylvia's Restaurant & Wine Bar

Celebrate a special occasion or simply treat yourself to dinner at Sylvia’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, a Wynnum venue loved by Brisbanites. A spacious dining room offers a contemporary vibe, whether hosting a function or enjoying family time together surrounded by sandy tones and bold black and red splashes cast under warm light. A seasonally inspired menu showcases regional produce in gourmet temptations, sure to please any appetite and taste. Begin with an entrée of seared scallops on cauliflower puree with a chorizo crumble before delving into a main of confit duck Maryland with wild mushroom risotto, baby spinach, duck jus and beetroot tapenade or perhaps the 300 g Black Angus rib fillet. Make sure you save enough room for a decadent dessert of chocolate pudding with raspberry compote.
