The Little Snail, Murray St, Pyrmont

The Little Snail has been around for years. I remember going there as a poor Uni student to their old Broadway premises as they offered this amazing deal of 3 courses for $25 pp.

How times have changes. They are now located in Pyrmont, just behind Darling Harbour and inflation means that the 3 courses are now $44 pp. It's still a very affordable meal considering the portion sizes.

We were off to see 'An Inspector calls' at the Lyric Theatre, so needed somewhere close by for a quick bite. The Little Snail now largely caters for groups. We had an early booking and walked in behind a bus load of senior citizens. Once we were provided with menus our waiter suggested that we order immediately or the large group of 40 plus people would delay our meals.

So, we ordered immediately - I went with the traditional French Onion soup, then Veal escalop with creamy mushroom sauce followed by Honey & almond cheesecake. My theatre buddy went with a dozen snails in the shell with lashings of garlic butter, then the grilled duck breast finished in orange grand marnier sauce followed by profiteroles topped with chocolate sauce.

Our waiters were attentive and the food was served well within our timeframe to get to the theatre. The food itself was passable - not good, great or excellent. It seems to me that this is the perfect example of you get what you pay for. $44 for a 3 course meal is great value but don't go there with high expectations.
