The ambiance at 3rd Corner is spot on, whether you're looking for the dining areas, or a table in the bar area,... or dine at the bar itself. They have a good bottle shop with very fair prices and a modest bottling fee for dine-in....More

Visited this place in 2012 and really liked it. It is no different today. The food is good, as is the service. The wine policy is outstanding! I had the pork schnitzel. The pork may have been cut a touch too thick, but the flavor...More
