“A pleasurable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We spent a Sunday evening here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious - especially the roast of the day. The service was friendly and relaxed. The DJ played a range of music which all of our diverse age group appreciated. The place has a nice, friendly relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and is a place where you can go for a cool spot to unwind and enjoy the company of friends and family.

“Great dining with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Good location, great menu and service. Very popular, need to make a booking. The atmosphere was stylish and friendly with all staff professional and friendly to customers and all obviously enjoy what they do. Steaks, lamb, duck fantastic and desserts cant be resisted. Great overall experience.

“The Real Bondi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Tourist free and a haven for locals residing within walking distance, this gastro wonderland perhaps epitomises Bondi better than any other establishment in the 2026 postcode.

At the corner of Fletcher St and Bondi Rd stands a small group of shops with anything anyone could ever need, a tailor, drug store, pub with pool tables, tattoo palour and an assortment of fantastic eateries all found within the 300 square meter area known locally as "Tama Junction".

At the forefront of these well known establishments is The Corner House with its intentional layout of formal dining to one side, casual eatery facing the busy street corner with outdoor bench tables a short hop through the open kitchen to the other and the intimate rooftop bar with its indoor and outdoor seating, it is a must stop on your rounds between The Beaver, The Squirrel and The Diaries.

The food is phenomenal, cocktail list impeccable and the chef and sommilier that tied everything together... Truly talented.
I eat at The Corner House at least twice monthly, with friends, neighbours and girlfriends, I have never had a bad meal or been treated with anything other than complete friendliness by a staff who's devotion to the hospitality industry is evident for all to see.

I can not recommend this sublime dining event strongly nor highly enough for those that enjoy food, wine and cocktails as much as I do. The menu is seasonal with local favourites remaining a staple, such as the succulent pork belly or the indulgent four corners pizza (undoubtebly the best pizza in Sydney). The wine special is always an intelligent and complex offering well worth a glass or three. If in doubt ask the staff for a recommendation, their food and wine knowledge is only surpassed by their passion for hedonism and oral delights.

Thursday nights are perhaps the best night to experience The Corner House at its local best with the shrill, squaking and obnoxious tourist (anyone residing outside of the 2026 postcode) influx still a blessed night or two away.

Treat this House like your home and in return you will be welcomed like family.

“The best pizza in Bondi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Having been a Bondi local now for 4 years, we finally decided to try this place which for some reason we always seemed to bypass because it looks small from the front. There is actually an entire back section and also upstairs cocktail bar area and the food and drinks is awesome.

Pretty much, just order the 'Special Pizza'... it changes every week but since we started going here, it has never let us down. Definitely one of the best pizzas in Sydney.

“Slow food takes on a new twist”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Is this one of the slowest restaurants in Sydney?? It takes time to get a table, then a longer time to order then even longer to actually get the food, but it's all done with a smile and friendly dissposition. The pizza's are beter in theory than reality, a little too oily for my palate. My dinning partner had a steak which was ok to good. A little speedier service would make this a pretty good spot.
