One suggestion would be a BYO wine option worth corkage. Hopefully they will be successful because I've always have had... read more

Relaxed lunch on Easter Monday (many other places were closed), the menu sounded fantastic and we were not disappointed. Cannot fault it - all food was delicious, staff friendly and helpful but not intrusive, good value for money. Will definitely go back next time we're in Port

We stopped at this restaurant based on previous reviews, ratings and awards. The service was super slow (there were only three tables, including ours, being served throughout our stay) and the food was bad to average. For entree, we ordered the cheese soldiers based again on other reviews and there was nothing special about it. Then for main, we had... More

Food at the Corner Restaurant is pleasant enough. The servings are large - too large in fact, but well cooked and tasty. The service is a little variable - getting pre dinner drinks before the first course seemed a challenge, but at least it was cheerful.

I had read good things about this restaurant so decided to give it a crack. Breakfast Monday morning and felt the staff were still asleep or had a big weekend, they seemed to avoid you, which is impossible when dealing with the public.
