“Awesome place to eat...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I've dined at Hog's Breath a lot. A WHOLE lot. And every time, I am treated to some of the best dining experiences the CBD has to offer. I always order a lite cut of the prime rib, cooked well done, and it is just amazing. The staff are excellent, the food arrived a lot quicker than I expected, and the ambience of the place is right up my alley.
I am writing this at 11:45pm, and could go there for a steak right now if it was open!

“Good food, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Would recommend the slow-cooked prime rib (steak) but not much else. The prime rib is nice and tender. Prime rib only available in the evening. Sauces for the meats are not worth the price.

Servers are average. Not much help. Tend to walk away without much conversation to attend to other matters.

Promotional beers were OK priced. Wines selection not great.

“Only good thing was the chips!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Our family recently took a friend to Hog's Breath Cafe and it turned out to a disappointing experience. Firstly, there is no ambience in the place - it is not welcoming or inviting. The service was very perfunctory with the staff not all that friendly or interested. The food was mediocre particularly the steak which was quite tasteless. The only good part of the meal was the chips - how sad is that!
We used to enjoy a meal at Hog's Breath but it has gone downhill in a big way. As other reviewers have said, it is overpriced & the food is not that good. There are a lot better places in Adelaide CBD than this eatery . I wouldn't even give it the label, "restuarant"!

“Very average and dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Went to Hogs Breath in gouger street during a week day in a group of people and found the service was poor and the quality of the food was not up to expectations. Definitely overpriced for the poor quality of food. First the wine that was ordered was not available, the food took an hour to be served and when it was served three orders out of eight were wrong, the meat was fatty and their curly chips were dry. I would not recommend Hogs breath to anyone.

“Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

It was nice a little overcooked on the steak reasonably quick freindly waitress. But the price is over priced for the food i had surf & turf they could of put more than a teaspoon of sauce for the price.
