Our children were very excited to have dinner at Hogs Breath, as they have enjoyed eating at a couple of the other restaurants in the same chain. However, what an absolute disappointment - the manager appears to rule the restaurant with an iron rod; all the staff appeared scared to make any decision without referring to him. My husband sent his steak back to the kitchen as it was about 70% pure fat - they changed for another steak, which was acceptable.When chatting to another diner, they described their meal as "terrible". On leaving the restaurant, we raised our disappointment to the manager and his response was exceptionally rude and derogatory. Save your cash and dine elsewhere!

Have eaten at Hogs Breath many times and it never disappoints. The service is always brisk, friendly and helpful. The best thing about it is the quality of there steaks, they are always outstanding and not overly priced. You can order a Lite version, if you are considering your waist line . Curly fries are popular.

Just back from a lousy meal at Hog's Breath Cafe in Byron. Don't go there.
Waited for ages for the food despite the place being nearly empty. Chicken lukewarm and Fries cold. Waiting staff inefficient. Got the bill without asking (they were washing the floor) We didn;t need encouraging to leave. When we got back to the hotel we found by wife's trousers were ruined as they must have washed the loo floors with neat bleach. Avoid

I have eaten at a lot of Hogs Breaths around the country and this one disappointed me the most. Food just not up to scratch

Just got back from the worst restaurant experience we've had in Australia. My wife's Salmon was raw on the inside, when we asked for it to go back under the grill the waitress snatched it away. 5 minutes later it came back burnt still laying on the now limp original salad. The Salmon was still raw on the inside so this time we called over a waiter. He was obnoxious and made out it was our fault for not asking for it to be cooked how we liked, we would have if we were given the option. If we wanted raw fish we would have gone to the Sushi restaurant down the road.

Terrible place and staff to match, avoid at all costs.
