Went to this restaurant last night for dinner. The food was good but expensive. Would I go back probably not. There is definitely better in Terrigal for the same price. The service started off excellent but as the evening went on had to find someone to order dessert and get the bill. The young man... read more

Staff are friendly and as efficient as any at these chain restaurants. The biggest issue we had was hat they had run out of the aged steaks that we had specifically come to eat, but they didn't tell us until we had been seated for 15 minutes and had an open bottle of wine, ie we were locked in.

I understand that you need to provide regular maintenance to the restaurant however cant you wait till close (which... More

This is an average cafe. Service is on and off - sometimes very friendly, sometimes not at all. Steak is good quality but expensive. Burgers are the best value but they need to invest in better bread. Great kids menu. Tip: get a bench table outside for the best view

We have been wanting to visit this Hogs Breath for a while for lunch and was finally able to get down there. I *WISH* I listened to the reviews about the Poor service! I guess curiosity killed the cat. To say Disappointment is an understatement! Waited 25 mins to be served, waited another 20mins for the starters to come out... More

Had dinner with a friend. Meal was okay but the veggies were bistro style (soggy and plain). Enjoyed the steak and the sweets were good.

I have been to this restaurant a few times (my kids like it) but am never impressed, the food is average and the price isn't cheap. Soggy vegies and overpriced pub food. Better in Summer but not the best choice in Terrigal.

I distinctly remember the menu saying my tortellini came with salad. It didn't arrive. Tortellini wasn't quite cooked. Neither of the steak dishes ordered had sauce offered. Medium rare steak came as expected though. Expected better.
