Was staying in the attached apartments, breakfast was great. Service was excellent and the food yummy. Would have liked to try for dinner but didn't get chance so will go back next time.

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night. Very little other choice on central port macquarie for a fine dining type meal. Food was very very nice for dinner but service was a little rushed. There was a distinct lack of ambience with no music and somewhat bright lighting and decor. Priced at 170 bucks for two felt like an... More

We love the food here. The staff are always great. The new decor??? Do not understand the choices made for that. We had pork belly followed by dessert, both were yum.

We had read some good, and some not so good, things about this restaurant, and as we were staying locally we decided to try it. Our experience was very positive. We particularly liked the sharing plate concept, as we did not want a really large meal, and this gave us an opportunity to experiment. We chose three dishes (Serrano ham... More

Went there on an early sunday morning, not many customers yet in the cafe but only one waitress behind the bar. "Table service' so we sit down and waited more than 5min without anyone coming to take any orders. By this time the waitress had to serve customers for the take away coffee and make the coffees, still alone !... More

Thank you for your constructive criticism regarding your breakfast experience. We apologise that you did not receive attentive service on a busy Sunday morning. Only a person who works in hospitality can truly appreciate staffing, customer service and demand – the latter being very hard to determine, especially on a weekend. We have discussed your comments with the team in... More

Visited The Corner for a late breakfast. It is in a nice location with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating options. We found the coffee was good and the breakfast servings large. Well worth a visit and will return in the future.

Had two big breakfasts, the eggs were hard and the two slices of bacon were stuck together and therefore each was only cooked on one side, not impressed. Coffee OK. Won't be back.

We just spent a week at Port Mac and tried lots of cafes during the visit. The Corner had hands-down the best coffee, and staff were nice, offered to make us a takeaway coffee after they were due to be closed on a Sunday. The seating is perfect for a beach location - a lot of nice outdoors seating and... More
