Our table had a nice view of the passing parade of Darling Harbour, the waiters/waitresses all curteous and pleasant with good service to match.Food was delicious, 3 courses for $38 which... More

This is one of the more affordable good restaurants in Sydney, and one of the few good French places. For some reason, French cuisine is not easy to find in a town that has every cuisine on the planet. The service is good, but the food came out so soon after we ordered it, it was actually a little disconcerting!... More

I truly enjoyed my visit to the Little Snail. We were celebrating our engagement and the atmosphere was perfect for such an occasion. I enjoyed the escargot and the kangaroo. Both dishes were delicious and satisfying. I had never had kangaroo before and found it very flavourful. The rest of the guests at our celebration also enjoyed their meals of... More

I have been here a couple of time, the escargot never disappoints! Personally, I find its escargots almost as good as the ones in Paris. Went there with a Groupon voucher, $80 for two. However, the quality and quantity was no less than what would have been had we not have a voucher! Highly recommended for its food quality and... More

Food is hit and miss. Snails were really bad. The lamb was very good but the veal looked and tasted like pub food. Nothing special about thr deserts. The staff were actually running around in the restaurant. It was busy but they shouldn't be running.

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.
