My husband and I went there for an anniversary dinner a couple of months ago. It was heavily raining but once we stepped inside, in a couple of seconds you forget about the storm outside. The food was exquisite, from starters to the mains it was just brilliant. The flavours, the presentation, everything. We were having one of the most... More

I've eaten here several times as a Port Mac local. In general I've found service to be quite slow during dinner but the ambience is nice. The food can be a bit hit and miss - sometimes amazing, and other times pretty average. The dishes often sound great on the menu, with interesting-sounding flavours and techniques, but then sometimes fail... More

Celebrated the husband's 73rd birthday with a delicious meal at this small intimate restaurant. The prices are a bit high for frequent visits but the food was excellent and well worth the cost. The daily specials were salmon or swordfish who could ask for anything more. It is very popular for brekky so we will come back again

The Corner has an exciting menu that changes seasonally and a good wine list. We often walk our dog along the breakwall and then sit outside with her and have lunch. Do yourself a favour and try it!

Being a resident of Port Macquarie I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have always found the food well prepared and good value. Unfortunately what it makes up for in food it lacks in service. On a recent visit for lunch I sat at my table for well over ten minutes and not one person came to... More

Have just had our first visit to Port Macquarie and had 2 breakfasts at The Corner. On the last morning we chose another café and were sorry we had not returned to The Corner for our last morning. Their meals, coffee and service are outstanding

This has been one of my all time favourite restaurants for more than three years. I am astonished to see any negative review of it. I have never had a meal that was less than great. Considering it is open for breakfast lunch and dinner, I have found the quality unvarying. Try the truffle toast soldiers, when they're available, for... More

We always try to have breakfast while in port at the corner. The food is fast and always delicious. The staff could be a tad more happy though.
