Was completely horrified with the service. Staff bartender was so rude,manipulated a story to get my friend kicked out and was not going to let her back in even though we explained what happened, she was so appalling. Will NOT be going back again!!!

I always look forward to a visit at The Corner. The food is delicious and their ever changing specials board gives great variety each time. The beer and wine selection is great and the service is fantastic as well. This is fast becoming our local.

We love coming to The Corner for a bite to eat and have a drink. The changing blackboard menu always has something mouth watering and the pretzel bread is a firm favourite. Great service. Fun atmosphere. On Sunday there is live music to enjoy.

Tucked right down the bottom end of the main drag, this little gem packs some punch. Great food with a menu that changes regularly. Keeping things fresh and new. Great service. Only negative is it is little on the pricey side for the size of...More

We are a family of four and had dinner here on a Saturday night whilst visiting Auckland. What a sensational menu! There wasn’t a dud item at all. While the servings were small, the taste more than made up for it. But the real stars...More
