The Little Snail is a pretty well-known restaurant in Sydney serving French cuisine. I remember when I was studying French way back in high school there was an excursion organised to eat here -especially to try those famous French snails. It's changed location a few times but still remains popular.
The menu consists of 3 courses for ~$65 but they do also do the occasional groupon deal as well which includes a drink. The menu is simple but tasty.
Salt and pepper calamari with homemade aioli -lighly crumbed rings of calamari with a nice aioli. The calamari was fresh and not rubbery at all.
French bouillabaisse with garlic bread, mussels, salmon, prawns. A very flavoursome seafood soup. The bread was best used to mop up the soup.
Crispy duck with spinach and currant sauce. YUM - this dish was my favourite. Simple, beautifully cooked duck breast.
Prawn and basil chili pasta - was OK but the sauce was a bit more tomato-ey than it was chili - not enough heat and I normally can't take much heat. Prawns were fat and juicy.
Creme caramel - the best dessert and the perfect end to the meal. Super sweet but so freaking delicious. I normally am not a big dessert person but the caramel in this dish and the texture of the pudding was just amazing.
Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce - pudding was moist and soft and warm, butterscotch was decadent. Almost as good as the creme caramel.
