The Petit Snail - User Reviews


This is a destination dining experience. The food is delicious. Be sure to order the creme brûlée. The steaks are cooked perfectly and I recommend the red wine sauce. Portions are generous. Staff are excellent and very welcoming. The owner/chef and his wife presented the best dining experience we have had since we moved to Australia almost three years ago. Great food -- good  26/04/2013

What a place - beautiful food and excellent service. That’s what we call the real gastronomic experience. Going to a restaurant is not just about the food (which was fantastic)but it is the love and passion you feel while you are enjoying your dinner. Highly recommended!! Especially the wine sorbet ... Unique!!!!review  05/11/2011

Below is what people have said about this amazing restaurant!!!!! Beverley Haigh from Bundaberg said: Merci, Merci, Merci! Not only was I staying at the wonderful Byron Bay for my 30th Birthday but I was lucky enough to discover this most wonderful of restaurants! The food was out of this world! And it was not just the food which made this special dining experience so wonderful - the staff were so friendly we felt as if we were dining at a family home! I'm a real foodie and just loved hearing where the meat was farmed, where the cheeses had ripened and where the vegies were grown. This is a restaurant which is all about the food. Good quality ingredients put together with love to create something so wonderful and mouth watering you want to try everything on the menu! Igor even shared his cooking secrets with us after the meal and I have tried them all! Thankyou again for a really wonderful birthday which i will remember always! Bev. Luke & Sonia from Pymont said: Our first night in Byron Bay was the most memorable, all thanks to "The Petit Snail". It was my girlfriends birthday and what better way to celebrate, but to enjoy the culinary delights of her homeland. The moment we walked in you felt as though you had stepped into a restaurant 16,000Kms away. We were made to feel at home by Dominique, who before long was reminiscing with Sonia about old French singers, accessories etc. I haven't even started on the food!!!! Igor is a genius! This was by far the best French food I have had. The starters were unbelievable and the Bouillabaisse......... I don't know where to start. Being a seafood lover, this ticked every box, plus more! We are already planning our next trip to Byron, the main reason being, we are craving "The Petit Snail"! Thanks guys!!!!!review  07/06/2010
