We had a large family group arrive at the Corner Restaurant for lunch/morning tea. The staff were very understanding and the service and the food were outstanding.

I can't say the breakfast is excellent. The only rate for food I would give is average. I was not quite happy with their service either. Have to wait at the check counter though the wait staff were actually there. Not sure if it's only unfriendly to foreigners.

Liked the bruschetta, disappointed in the mains, which lacked interesting flavours and were a muddle of taste. Seats not comfortable. Nice wine selections.

We had eaten at this restaurant a few years ago and were very happy to find it was still going. We had a delicious breakfast on the two mornings we stayed in Port Macquarie.

Thank you for returning to The Corner to enjoy our delicious breakfasts. We have a vibrant selection of wholesome and healthy fare to start your day. With winter upon us, you can't go past the simplicity of heart-warming porridge with maple syrup, banana & brown sugar. Happy eating! More

The restaurant was fully booked for dinner when we turned up but the very obliging waitress fitted us in before a later booking. We decided on four share dishes, charcuterie plate, pork belly, octupus and chorizo and pumpkin salad. Despite avoiding lunch we only just managed to finish all dishes. The portions were large for tapas type food, the food... More
