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

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....

We were in Glenelg and decided to have an early dinner before going home. We did not have reservations and despite a busy Saturday night they fitted us in. Three 'lite' prime ribs with various toppings were ideal for 1 very small appetite, 1 light appetite and 1 teen who ate 1 and a half meals. Steaks were beautifully tender.... More

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
