After a disappointing experience at Tobe Jones restaurant across Darling Harbour we decided the next night to try something completely different. And indeed it was very different. The food was great, the service excellent. Despite running out of steak and veal on a Sunday night at 7 PM,... my lamb was great and my partner's duck was very good. The... More

Beautiful food! Had a Groupon voucher which made it very reasonable..approx $40 each for 3 courses plus a wine, beer or cocktail. My husband ordered the snail entree (first time snail eaters!) and we were pleasantly surprised. For main he chose the veal which he rated as one of his top meals ever! Sticky date pudding (his all time favorite... More

We went for the lunch menu which we thought was reasonably priced. Everything we ordered tasted so delicious. I'm quite a light eater, but the food was so good i managed to finnish everything served to us on the plates. Definitely making my next party there!

We were a party of 6 and all commented on how delicious our meals were. The snails were excellent (or so I was told) and the veal was "melt in your mouth". My husband had the steak and said it was "superb". I agree in that it was noisy, but we were there for Mother's Day dinner and there were... More

This was our second visit in 12 months, courtesy of a Groupon voucher. There is always a reasonable choice (although it was a Monday and no duck available) and the combination of bouillabaisse and lamb was excellent. The desserts were just right and chocolate mousse never disappoints. Even without the voucher the Little Snail is good value.

A popular spot for the Asian community. A nice feel in the two storey place. 9 out of 10 for the snails. 7 for the pate. 5 for the calamari. 6 for all the main meals. The meals lack the feel of style and quality. More like bistro food. 10 for the sticky date pudding. Food did not come together.... More

Came here for dinner once with my gf. It is good location not far from harbor side. When we were seated on the 2nd floor, I realized all Asian diners except 2 tables lol. The table next to us is very noisy and it is ruining the atmosphere. The waitresses look French, we ordered 3 course meal. The duck liver... More

Reception was frosty and service was curt. Was disappointed at the poorly cooked steak - Requested for medium rare and it was rather well done on one side of steak and the other closer to raw. My steak was cut up when served [photos included to show you what I was served] Pricey as I had to pay AUD$42 for... More

This is my most visited restaurant. This time I ordered the mushroom & leek crepe for entree. It was wonderful. I could not pass the Beef Tenderloin. It is always cooked to your expectation. If you haven't been, you have to give this a go.
