Nice dinner

Close to our hotel, it was a pleasant evening. Nothing really outstanding, but nice view of Darling Harbor and the service was good.

I visited the Little Snail with my husband for dinner before a show in January 2016. It was our first visit to the restaurant. Upon entry we were immediately seated at a table by the window looking towards Daring Harbour. The Décor was slightly dated, but it isn't the décor I am rating here because the meals were so amazing,... More

We turned up and my partner had the coupon on her mobile and proceeded to give it to the waitress. The manager walked behind the counter, asked if we had printed it out, which we obviously hadn't if we were bringing it up on the mobile, then did a Faulty Towers impression of sighing, throwing his head back in one...

Had a most enjoyable lunch here with 6 people, the food was absolutely superb along with the service. Staff were very polite and could thoroughly recommend a visit to this long established restaurant. The kangaroo was cooked perfectly along with every other dish that was chosen.

Coming up from Melbourne with a pre arranged food voucher, we both had the 3 course meal with a free red for about $39each. How can you go wrong. The snails were beautifully done in garlic, the waitresses recommendation that the duck breast is a speciality proved to be correct. plenty of it, tasty with a slight raspberry aspect, and... More

Food was really good and service was fine but the little snail has been around since the 70s and wanted just a little more french style to their Darling Harbour resturant decor...all in all a nice evening!

My mum and I were looking to have a nice lunch somewhere over the weekend. W had been a few years before and thought we would try it again. Great choices from a well priced lunch menu: 3 courses for $38. Wine/beer/spirits weren't too expensive either! We ordered: snails and prawns to start, lamb for our mains and the desserts... More

Snails were overcooked the duck was over powered by spinach. Who serves spinach with duck anyway? Bouliabaise was not what it is suppose to be but the crumb calamari my son had was great

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
