    Kitchen chaos. We had just been to a gin tasting in the upstairs dining room, where we had been able to sample tasty morsels coming straight from the kitchen - so we were looking forward to our meal downstairs. We ordered 7 different tapas dishes between the two of us, as we wanted a light supper not a large meal. The downstairs room slowly filled with diners over the next 40 minutes, but no food was arriving. Eventually ours did arrive, but not all of it. Also some items were incorrect (5 pieces of one tapas and none of several others). That was the first problem. Second problem was, none of them were very nice. Everything was covered in a thick breadcrumb-like coating and deep-fried (so everything was an unappetising "beige"). The fillings were sparse, dry and pasty, not much flavour apart from the cod fishcake which was quite tasty. However, my glass of wine was nice and complemented the food well. The staff were attentive and apologetic, and at the end our bill was adjusted with no question. We will try Silvanas again but next time we'll order a main dish each and will avoid the tapas. The upstairs room has a nicer appearance than downstairs, which was ok but noisy. I wouldn't like to put anyone off, as we should all be supporting local independant eateries, so give Silvanas a try but maybe give the tapas a miss.

    Review of barbecue experience on 01.06.24. Everything absolutely superb. Was a little sceptical after seeing a review suggesting slow service on TripAdvisor, but the reality couldn't have been more different. Service was spot on and then some, and the meat was beautiful. Well done Nigel, you proved me wrong! Exemplary - good work guys

    There needs to be more variation on the starters menu, everything is deep fried and not a veg in sight aside from root veg.

    We had a table of 3 for myself, my husband and teenage daughter. The staff were very welcoming and attentive and the service overall was excellent - could not fault it. The starters were good but I would have preferred to have finished those off before being offered the meat selection that was coming round. The selection of side dishes that were offered were very tasty but I probably would have preferred a selection of sides to choose from. The meat coming round was plentiful and quickly replenished but unfortunately some of the cuts were very chewy and we experienced a lot of fatty bits which were not enjoyable. The desert menu was good and fairly priced and the carrot cake was delicious. Overall though because of the above, I don't think it was value for money.

    Visited Silvana’s today for the first time (Mothers Day) and unfortunately, we were left underwhelmed. It is a shame as we were really excited to try this new restaurant. The Brazilian BBQ was not available (only Saturdays, which we didn’t know on booking) so instead we ordered from the Main Menu. The two chicken tapas dishes were not available so we ordered the beef, cheese and prawn. There was severe confusion with the tapas starters - We were originally told ‘X’ plate was cheese, then when we queried the missing prawn ones, we were told ‘X’ was prawn, only to try them, confirm they were cheese and then enquire again on the whereabouts of the prawn ones. After finishing the starters that were served, the waitress attempted to clear our plates but we asked her not to as we were awaiting the rest of our starter … After 20 minutes, the prawn ones arrived. The starters were good, if a little dry. For mains we ordered the Piri Piri Chicken and Beef Stew, overall presentation and flavour was lacking. The beef was mostly tender but one piece (the largest) was incredibly tough and chewy. Another guest ordered the coconut and sweet potato soup and small pastries, these were delicious. We had to call a waiter/waitress over to order more drinks; ordered a Diet Coke for our daughter, thankfully it came in a bottle so we were able to see/check (it was full sugar) so we sent this back. In summary, the service needs work (appreciate Silvana’s is a new restaurant) but given the service charge, this should be to a better standard. The food in the round is average and when factoring in the price, on the whole, it’s disappointing - We would choose to eat elsewhere in Farnham as there is better service and better food to be enjoyed.

    Not good, we have been to a few Brazilian restaurants with the same concept but this was by far the most disappointing. Variety of meat isnt good enough, must have been offered chicken drumsticks 10 times! sides are cold by the time you get your second meat! And portion size was poor. For the price I wasnt expecting cans of beer! Cold brownie desert that was stale. We tried it but won't be back unfortunately.
