We had lunch here with our two small children and we loved it. The staff were amazing, the food was awesome and we enjoyed it all while taking in the beautiful views.

We had drinks at Hogs Breath two nights in a row (we had other plans for dinner). The staff were friendly and helpful. Even remembered my chosen wine on the second night (it wasn't a house wine - I was impressed!). The drinks were a little overpriced, but you'd be willing to overlook that with a nice view and good...

We went in as a result of how busy it was. Staff seemed friendly enough if a little distracted. Cocktails were nice enough though a little expensive for what you got. The starters were basic and not particularly nice. I don't need BBQ sauce on potato skins and would rather have it on the side as an option. I did... More

We are locals and chose Hogs Breath for a family dinner out. On arrival we were ushered to the back where it became apparent 'families' are seated. We were seated directly under both the aircon and the speaker. So we were not only freezing but the music was so loud we could neither hear ourselves speak nor the wait staff.... More

We settled on lunch at Hog's breath while wandering along Bulcock beach walkways. Had previously eaten at another store elsewhere where not overly impressed. However on this occasion the meals and service were excellent. The steak with calamari was cooked perfectly, annoys you when you cannot do same at home. The calamari was best I have had for some time... More

We live locally and picked this restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately my 'top of the range Mega steak' was terrible. It was very fatty, watery and not as big as i thought it would be. We ordered some kids meals which were meant to be free on this night but the waitress did not even realise this until she checked. Be... More
