A nice family friendly restaurant at the heart of Terrigal across the road from the beach caters for couples to large family groups. Good and friendly service, great food and great atmosphere. Try the Natural prime traditional cut steak cooked medium with Dijonnaise sauce - superb.

On a visit to Terrigal a few days ago we were looking for somewhere for lunch when we spied the Hpgs Breath with a $9.90 special of a few varieties, so we went on up the stairs to a lovely atmosphere with carved heavy wooden tables and a choice of indoor or balcony seating with a nice view over the...

Our group consisted of 6adults, 1 teenager and 3 children. The Hogs Breath Cafe managed to cater to each of our tastes. We were shown to our table and our orders were taken within a reasonable time. Our meals, consisting of steak, fish & chips, chicken, hamburgers and children's meals arrived within about 15 minutes and all at the same... More

Hogs Breath Café (because Hogs Breath is better than no breath at all so they tell us) is a well known franchise with outlets around Australia. This one at Terrigal has the sort of décor the franchise goes in for which is in the 'artfully dishevelled' look with a fetish for faux corrugated iron and reminders of the beach life.... More

Limited family dining options in Terrigal on a public holiday meant we tried this place. Food was average at best and other than the Calamari Rings which were tasty, there wasn't much here that was enjoyable. Happy to pay these prices for food that is fresh and enjoyable.......but this place didn't offer this unfortunately. Not really good value

Took family member visiting from overseas for a special lunch occasion and were very underwhelmed by the poor service and overpriced steak and vegetable plate I could have cooked and prepared better at home. Only mild consolation was the location overlooking the beach, not enough to return ever again though.

We dined here on a weeknight with family including small children. The service we received was outstanding and nothing was a problem for the staff. Meals came out together and were hot, the children were catered for easily and all requests were met happily. Had a great night!

Ate in here several times while being in Terrigal for 3 weeks. Food was lovely, fair sized portions. Good value for money! Would recommend for families.

We dined here with high expectations as it is a popular chain of restaurants. The service was good, the young waiter went out of his way to make us comfortable and keep the kids entertained. The food, however, was not good! Steak over done, chicken dried out and the salad was border line mouldy. The one star is for the... More

We visited with family whilst on a short break in Terrigal - what a mistake! On walking up the stairs from the street and being shown to a table, I made a quick glance towards the kitchen and back of house area and saw food and dirt all over the floor - not a good start On sitting down at... More
