This has been one of my all time favourite restaurants for more than three years. I am astonished to see any negative review of it. I have never had a meal that was less than great. Considering it is open for breakfast lunch and dinner, I have found the quality unvarying. Try the truffle toast soldiers, when they're available, for... More

The Corner doesn't live up to the hype. For a $$$ restaurant you'd expect better than plastic chairs and exposed tables. Our waiter clearly wasn't interested in working the night we were there. The restaurant was quiet but he was unattentive. He read the specials from a note pad. Not what you expect from fine dining. The glassware, cutlery and... More

My husband and I had a delicious dinner at this restaurant. Well cooked, presented and served. Staff were polite and friendly. Byo is a plus although the venue is licenced. We would certainly return.

Although the cafe was only half full and I saw four staff working, it took 5 minutes for the staff to stop chatting long enough to take orders. The coffee was lukewarm and bitter and the cream served with the scones was sour. Yep, they served food that was not only past its use by date but was actually bad... More

We have not responded to your review because you have the wrong business. We have been operating for 7 years and have never had scones on the menu - we did advise Trip Advisor of this error as soon as you posted your review. More

We really couldn’t ask for a better review of our breakfast service at The Corner. You have summed up what we hope to achieve every morning from 7 to 11am. PS. The new Spring breakfast menu started today – we are loving the House baked brioche French toast, whipped mascarpone, orange, candied walnuts, salted caramel! More

I came here for breakfast with my father. We had the crumpets and the Big Brekkie. Both were really nice, my dad liked his meal and the crumpets are now a new favourite of mine. Only negatives are: 1. Service is a hit and miss- wait staff are nice, not attentive. We had a mishap with our order and it... More

This is a difficult review, as part of the meal was good, one of the waiters was nice! We were greeted in this restaurant and seated by a rather surly waiter, who after making three errors, became pleasant. The beer recommended was very good, but they only had one cold one (reported after the 1st beer was opened and served).... More

However we appreciate you returning the next morning to experience our popular Corner breakfast. The soufflé is on both our lunch and dinner menu and we have not had any unfavourable feedback to date, so we apologise if it was not up... More

My daughter and husband gave us a gift voucher to enjoy a meal at this restaurant and it was beautiful. You could sit outside and enjoy water views or inside in warm comfort.

Had many breakfasts at The Corner Restaurant and they were all excellent. Food is awesome and the service is friendly and efficient. We did dine at other restaurants in the Port Macquarie area and we always came back to The Corner Restaurant to complete the night with a fabulous desert. It is definitely the place to dine if you like... More
