I've been to a few Hog's Breath cafes around but Canberra's is definitely the best. Always good food, always busy with a great atmosphere, creative decorations, and attentive staff. Great place to go with some friends.

Extremely bad food (the Hog's Breath at Canberra City) - food was cold, taco consisted of a small bit of meat with loads of sour cream (cold), steak burnt, vegies cold. But the worst was the waitress - she had NO idea, was rude, contradicted what we said and you could not buy a smile. Never again.

My partner and I went to Hogs Breath for an early dinner on a Sunday eveing (5pm). We were one of 3 couples in the restaurant at that time. Our Entree's were brought out rather quickly and were typical of the Hogs Breath standard, nice. Our mains soon followed and the steak was delicious as usual.
We placed a drinks order mid way through our main, we waited 15 minutes and no drinks, we asked again, still no drinks. My partner went to the bar and ordered them himself. 25 minutes after the order, our drinks appeared.
We then decided to order desert, we placed the order with the who I believe to be the manager, 20 minutes later nothing (granted it was around 6pm so the the restaurant was filling). We then enquired about our desert and we were told it was on its way. We waited another 10 minutes before giving up. My partner informed the cashier that we had been sitting at the table for 30 minutes waiting for desert, to our shock it had not even been ordered. It was a total waste of time. To compensate the inconvenience we recieved a dismal $10 discount. Needless to say we wont be back.

Every time i've attended the Civic Hogs Breath the staff have taken forever to take our order and the meals are not brought out to the table together ...... which usually results in 1 meal being forgotten completely.

I'm not overly impressed with the prices of meals.......too pricey for what you actually get.
