We recently stayed at the Macquarie Waters and were advised that the restaurant was very good so we booked before we went to a show at the Glass house. Our experience was good. The food was of high quality. The service was efficient. We had breakfast there the next morning and again were not disappointed. The only comment in the... More

Only had coffee here and it was good!! Hot and smooth. They use Campos coffee which is one I like! It has indoor and outdoor seating and the staff were friendly.

I thought I might give it a go given the good reviews here. Second time this week. Had fancy "fish and chips" last time. Went for the "Steak Sandwich" this time. Again disappointed.

Wonderful food. Expensive but very enjoyable. Unfortunately ambience of Restaurant is more like a cafe, very noisy and we were seated by entrance to toilets.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the restaurant. We're really happy you enjoyed the wonderful food. The Corner is definitely a cafe by day, however we aim to be a more intimate restaurant at night. We hope to see you again for another enjoyable meal. More
