Food average for what you pay. Service ok. Great location outside. Group bookings well looked after.

We appreciate your short and sweet review. We value your comments and hope you enjoyed the good food! Our alfresco terrace is very popular on a sunny winter's day - ideal to relax and soak up the sun with good food and company. More

Whilst the taste of the food and service were great, we were all shocked by the small meal size for the money. This would put me off returning to this restaurant.

On holidays from Coffs Region and strolled in for breakfast yesterday. Service was pleasant and efficicient. Meals and coffee were delicious. Try the lamb sausage - it is the best I've ever tasted! Came with the big breaky. Had breakfast elsewhere in Port this morning and was disappointed. Wish we'd gone back to the Corner Restaurant!

I was lucky enough to eat the best Eggs Benedict breakfast I have ever eaten at the Corner Restaurant today. The service was great and the staff very friendly. Keep up the good work guys. Michelle

Our first time in Port Macquarie and we were given The Corner as a recommendation from a waitress at the Stunned Mullet the night before (also great). It didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly if the service was a wee bit slow (they were busy and we've got used to big city type service). My husband and I had porridge... More

Went for breakfast the other morning and it was nothing special, nothing wrong with it except that the meal was not really that hot. Service was spot on but the décor could do with a face lift. Seems like a popular spot but the food was nothing to rave about.

Thank you for your review. We always have 2-3 items on the breakfast menu that are a little different such as the baked eggs with cumin spiced tomato sauce and haloumi. I am very pleased that you found the service spot on. More

Went here for breakfast on our last day in Port Macquarie. We have a family of five (3 kids + 2 adults); all happy. They have a kids menu which helps keep the cost down. All the food was GREAT. The lamb/honey sausages were very flavoursome and the home made crumpets with jam/honey are also worth a look.

In the fours years that I lived in Port Macquarie "The Corner" proved itself to be a consistent quality restaurant. I would say one the best two!

Tuesday lunch called us to The Corner, by repute a restaurant of high quality. My bruschetta was delicious; my companions remarked that the mushroom soup provided little flavour of mushroom, and that the lamb slider was dry and had a slightly unusual (non-lamb) flavour to it. Perhaps we chose a day when the kitchen was having a problem ... Staff... More

We dined here a while back and it was a most interesting night. I have had many delicious coffees here but it was the first time for dinner. The menu is creative and varied , not too big, but adequate. The service was spot on, except for reading daily specials written on our waitresses hand...which lowered the tone a little!... More
