This would be the second time my partner and I have visited The Little Snail and we have not been disappointed. This time round we went on a Groupon voucher and it was amazing value! We would go again even without the voucher though. We highly recommend for the entrees the escargot and the pate. The pate was absolutely divine,... More

This is a favourite restaurant of ours. The food is so delicious. Beautifully presented. The staff very courteous and attentive. We love all the meals on the menu and particularly the creme caramel made the very best by the french chefs

Came here to celebrate a friends birthday. 3 course meal and 2 drinks for $60. Called ahead to arrange a surprise cake which they declined and asked us to bring along however they offered an addition on the dessert with a candle which was acceptable. Had to wait a while although reservations were made, place was really crowded. Service was... More

First of all, I heard a lot of positivity from friends of mine abt this resto. I purchase my groupon online. I can say that the staff was very friendly. I had only given 4 stars because I was dissapointed with my fave Escargot and Magret de Canard. The dish was up not to scratch. I didn't enjoy this dish.... More

It's not often you attend a restaurant in Sydney using a coupon and are treated like royalty. Too often restaurants don't capitalise on the new customers a coupon deal brings in, but not at The Little Snail. Friends had told us how good it was, but it just didn't have "Street appeal" to me. So when I saw a deal... More

Looks can be a little deceptive particularly if you remember the previous character-filled location on Broadway but fear not, the kitchen and staff are still very impressive. No longer rustic but stainless steel slick in its Darling Harbour location, The Little Snail still ensures a memorable dining experience. An extensive menu, beautifully presented and happy knowledgeable staff combine with generous... More

What a great find! Had the three course lunch for $38 which was amazing value. There were a numbers of choices in all courses. Can highly recommend the pate but didn't finish as there was another amazing two courses to come. Three of our party had the seafood plate which looked and tasted great. Desserts such a hard choice, our... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
