Stylish bijou restaurant, with excellent menu and wine list. They clearly care about the quality of the food and the service - the whole experience was lovely, especially as it was a birthday treat for a friend.

The current Gavi de Gavi isn't as nice as the previous one. Otherwise would have been 5 stars all the way through.

Excellent in all respects. I would be hard pushed to find fault with anything. In fact my experience was so good I had two of the dishes twice!

Great food as always, we are never disappointed. Just unfortunate there was a birthday party of 6 in at the same time who were incredibly loud so much so, that we couldn't have a conversation on our table without shouting. Probably better if we had sat out the back away from the noisy party if we had been offered a table there.

Maybe I’m just greedy but food portions could have been a little bigger as each course was very delicious, just wanted more, that’s the only negative. The chef(s) obviously cares about pleasing the customer. Best meal I’ve had out for a long time, hats off to the chef (s). Front of house service excellent too, friendly and very courteous.

We have eaten in many restaurants and enjoyed our meals but this was a class apart. The food and presentation on the plate was first class. The whole meal was a wonderful experience and we look forward to coming again.

Lovely food, fine dining at a fair price - appropriately exclusive. Only critique would be the cheese board could include a soft cheese and possibly a really powerful blue. Otherwise, the menu is magically balanced for all tastes.

Here follows a copy of my full review on TripAdvisor https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g190761-d1960709-r614868848-Sylvan_Oak-Worthing_West_Sussex_England.html# Five star outstanding food. Food hygiene rating of only 3 out of 5 was not displayed Unfortunately the food hygiene rating (score on door) was not displayed and we mentioned this to the waitress at the end of our meal. She promised to bring it to the attention of the Chef at the end of the session. We subsequently checked the score on an official website and found the Sylvan Oak had only three out of five stars when inspected on 15th August 2017. We were sad that a restaurant serving food of such outstanding quality had not achieved a five star excellent food hygiene review! We look forward to visiting again when the restaurant is able to display five stars for food hygiene. and hopefully our favourite table will be reserved if requested! All can be forgiven for a very special birthday lunch! The atmosphere in the restaurant was so friendly with customers of a wide age range enjoying a meal to celebrate anniversaries or birthdays. Snap! My wife and I both chose a starter of crab with sweet corn panacotta, pickled mushroom and crab rarebit. A wonderful mix of matching flavours but we found the sweetcorn mix at the base of bowl made a wonderful ending to this course. As it was was the Findon Sheep Fair my wife opted for spring lamb with courgette moussaka, confit carrot , new potatoes and black olive jus. She admired how the lamb was so perfectly cooked - tender with a tinge of pinkness. The fillet of beef with potato layer cake, broccoli, blue cheese and red wine jus proved to be a taste bud experience rather than a boring choice to go for a steak! Dipping the al dente vegetables in the sauces and dissecting the potato layer cake wa an adventure! So envious of the chef for cooking the thick fillet steak an even red right the way through yet so nicely seared on the outside. Back to my frying school :) I lingered over every mouthful of this steak that was really tender and an excellent flavour Snap again! We both chose the middle eastern frozen nougat sandwich and poached peach. What a wonderful yet co-ordinated melange of flavours, textures and temperature At just over £92 for the two of us for a three course lunch (including drinks) this was at the top end of our normal budget. For a special event we are feel this price is reasonable considering the skill and effort needed to produce such quality food. ThankyouI
