Dessert was a top finish with the choc brownie. Really recommend making the effort to have one... read more

We had lunch here today on the recommendation of a local. It was disappointing. We arrived at 12.45, the restaurant was half empty. It was blowing a very cold wind so we sat inside. We were given menus and left stranded. Two other occupied tables left leaving two tables and us In the room. One of these tables were eating... More

"Definitely Not!"...... "We are quite full" was the junior female staff member's response to the phone request for a table for two for dinner. No alternative times were offered. So this review is more about initial impressions than actual cuisine. Fearing another curt rejection by phone we just arrived, without booking, for coffee and cake another day and all was... More

We’re so pleased that you persisted for a short visit to The Corner after receiving that less than welcoming response. Our apologies – it was indeed a junior staff member who is in training and we will rectify this immediately. It is nice to know that you enjoyed the coffee and cake! We look forward to seeing you for dinner. More

Had a great dinner here the other night, we chose to feast on the sharing tapas style dishes and were not disappointed by any that we tried. The dessert was delicious too.

We were staying at the Macquarie Waters hotel which included a breakfast voucher at The Corner Restaurant. What excellent value. My fiance and I ordered the big breakfast and it was fantastic.

Been a few times for dinner and breaky and just delicious. Pork belly sharing plate is just awesome, I think it's the best pork belly yet with great crackling, thin fat and a huge piece of pork meat which is so tasty.
