I have been to the Little Snail twice now. The food is wonderful and the staff are very friendly. My wife and I had a great meal. Next time it will be with friends as the groups tables were having a good time! Good value for money!

I had dinner with friends at the Little Snail at Darling Harbour in Sydney and the food was amazing. The service was just as good. We were surprised when we were offered a $60 per person three course meal menu. $60 for three courses? In Sydney that's super cheap, but the food standard is far from cheap. It's awesome!! I...

We were a table of 4 with other tables and their service philosophy was to bring out all the same starters for all the tables then wait 5 mins and bring out the other starters Mains - beef and duck very...

Lovely,romantic French restaurant. Friendly staff and great food at a reasonable price. The meals were perfect and the escargot brilliant. Much better than the busy,noisy Darling harbor area and so close to the Sydney cbd.

We went to the little snail tonight, the entrée we ordered snails, a bit disappointed meat to soft doesn't look like from fresh snails. My son ordered beef tenderloin for main dish is perfect, seafood platter is big dish, dessert just so so. But still is a good value for Groupon voucher.
