Great Value

We used a lunch meal deal for a course meal. The food was very good, tasty wikth a diverse menu. The service was outstanding, meals a little rushed but the restaurant experience for me was that I will be back.

Took a group from my club to have lunch there. $38 for three course lunch. We chose a variety of meals from the menu and everyone was delighted with their choice. Even a couple were brave enough to try the snails! The staff were great, and there were no complaints about the dishes chosen. We had someone from the group... More

My partner and I have dined here multiple times, and each time as magical as the last. Convenient location right next to darling harbour, amazing food, excellent service, and most importantly, consistency! We are creatures of habit, once we find something we love, we stick to it. Sadly, for restaurants, this is only possible for a few years if not... More

Ordered salt and pepper squid. Recieved 4 calamari rings. Steak way over cooked. The snails on their menu are imported frozen from Indonesia(waitress told me). Had to pour our own wine even the first glasses when we purchased a full bottle of wine. The decor was old and outdated. Went out looking for a nice classy dining experience yet I... More

Four of us attended dinner there and had 3 course meals and $120 bottle of wine. The experience was terrible. I have not seen anything like it in a long time. We had to ask for the wine to be decanted, and once done we had to pour it ourselves, the same with sparkling water. Could have just stayed home!... More

The food is amazing, service is great and overall value is worth checking out if you like French cuisine Close to Casino and easy parking next door in the Novotel.

Second visit here & not disappointed. We had a voucher but were treated like any other patron. Great Cocktails along with great food, I had Salmon Roulade, exquisite. Followed by Duck Breast beautifully presented & tasted as good as it looked. Followed by Praline Hazelnut ice cream. Delectable. Great friendly service & nice atmosphere.

This restaurant is always so consistent. We have been to The Little Snail at least a dozen times. Charles and Mark always look after us. Excellent service, excellent meals and always a winner with our family and ourselves. We have tried every dish on the menu.

We had a great lunch today at the Little Snail with friends. The meal is a fixed price $38 for three courses. I had a dozen snails as a starter followed by a lamb fillet and finished with ice cream. The snails were well cooked and juicy with a garlic and butter sauce. The lamb also was perfectly cooked. Overall... More

We went to try the snails! The food was so fresh and tasty. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Ask for a window seat for a great view of the city. $60 for 3 courses such a bargain.
