We went to Hogs Breath on the last night of the heatwave. We had booked a table, and when we got there were a bit concerned that it was really hot in the restaurant and we were in a back corner. Apparently their air-con wasn't coping with the heat, so we asked to move and they were able to give... More

We had dinner on the balcony here on a Tuesday night. Children under 12 eat free with any adult meal so it was great value as well. We had the salmon and it was magnificent. I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the people of glenelg go by !! Very relaxing

Been there twice before and the food was good. This time around not good. The ribs was bleak and untactful (seems they were boiled only), the steak cold. The cheese sauce over the vegetable sour and it seams it came from a bottle, definataly not fresh. The sauce over the ribs is from a bottle (HP) Will skip them next... More
