I love this place. Initially I went using an entertainment book discount, but on my many subsequent visits i've paid full price and it's still great value for money. I've always been for their 3 course lunch/dinner and although the menu never seems to change, you never get sick of eating those delicious Escar Got!

We where walking past and saw this restaurant. Walkind in to make a booking and told the Maitrede that we had an 8:00 show at the Casino. He suggested a booking time that gave us plenty of time, to enjoy the meal and make the show. It is a fixed price $60 for 3 course dinner. The food was exceptional... More

Was looking forward to a beautiful French meal with my family at this restaurant but was bitterly disappointed with the quality of the food. The salt and pepper calamari was not as good as we would get at our local fish and chip shop. The camari so obviously tasted like frozen seafood, there was nothing 'french' about this dish. The...

The food was fantastic - not large servings if you are a big eater but certainly satisfied us. The service was delightful and very good value for money. Will be back.

Restaurant is very well located in Darling Harbour with ample space being on 2 levels. They have a good selection on their menu and the meals are all very well prepared and tasty. Some portions are a reasonable size, but some are much larger for the very hungry (e.g. the pate as entree and the fish platter as a main).... More

Held a celebration dinner for 30 people recently at The Little Snail. The food was excellent. Service was perfect! The staff helped make this a very happy celebration. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are already planning their return visits. Highly recommend this restaurant for the delicious food but also for the wonderful atmosphere.

Had the $38 lunch after being recommended by a friend. The food was amazing. The service was exemplary with the drinks and food coming out very fast. There was a very noisy party upstairs so they lost a point for atmosphere. Will definitely be back!!
