Didn't arrive in Glenelg until near closing time, and most patrons had left the cafe. Having previously experienced a serious lack of interest in many other establishments was apprehensive as to my reception but they could not have been more welcoming. Nothing was a trouble and they willingly reassured me that I could order whatever I wanted. My steak was... More

Quick service with friendly polite staff. Was served within a few mins. Steaks were made to order. Was clean and comfy out on the balcony . The only downfall was the hard seats.

We decided that not having had a burger since June that we would head down to Glenelg for a burger at the Hogs Breath Cafe. We were given an outside seat, as they were not busy at all and it was a sunny day. The young man said someone would be over shortly to take our order. After waiting 25... More

Invited by a friend - not overly excited about the prospect. However - loved the venue, great atmosphere, enticing menu, delightful wine, excellent service and best steak I've had in a long time. Asked if music volume could be lowered and this was done. I will return. Well done

This was our 2 nd visit to this restaurant and probably our last. After being seated by a very efficient maitre de we waited over 10 mins for someone to approach the table to take our order. We hadn't even been offered a drink so we ordered drinks with our meal. The garlic bread arrived cold. One piece felt like... More

We stopped at the restaurant without booking, hoping that by chance they had a table. We hoped to sit on the balcony. The staff were very polite, courteous and helpful, and explained that the balcony area was fully booked from 7.00pm, however if could finish our meal by that time, they would be happy for us to have a table....
