Made a reservation for the following evening to arrive on time to find the restaurant closed! (We didn't leave a telephone number so I don't know whether they would have contact us to inform us of the restaurant being closed or not) We decided to re-visit to have a meal another evening. The slow cooked steak had already sold out... More

A nice harbour side location and we ate out on the porch which was good. Service was friendly enough and the food (we both had steak with a choice of curly fries, baked potato or sweet potato) was OK but nothing special. Reasonable value for money but not very memorable.

We stopped in for the adverstised specials but didn't realize weekends didn't count. The view of mountains and harbor were great. Burgers and weekend lunch special were nice. Kids burgers and the Caesar salad not so much. Staff were friendly but had to look for our server a couple times, it wasn't real busy. The location was the highlight.

Ordered a sharing platter for 2 and 2 lime soda bitters. The food arrived very quickly and was ample of everything. The calamari was cooked beautifully and very tender as was the fish pieces, chicken and giant prawns. All in all, great value and service..

Great outside dining on the wharf. Watched the Flying Foxes (bats) flying everywhere. Food was good. View of the sunset was awesome.

We had the most wonderful food here. We took the chance and didn't book and were lucky to get a table, as it became quite busy. Staff were excellent, service was excellent and the food was excellent!! Cannot wait to go back, it is simply the best 'Hog's Breath Cafe' we have ever been in... just wish it was in... More

Less fast food and more casual nice food experience. The staff were very helpful, it was open earlier for lunch than the rest of the Marina and we found the crab cakes in particular to be great!

After wandering Port Douglas for searching for dinner we wound up at the marina and Hog's Breath Cafe for dinner. Being clueless Americans we had no idea this is an Australian chain. And, like American restaurant chains, there is good and bad about this. The good: the menus has something for everyone. Burgers, salads, steaks, chicken, seafood, wraps, ribs. Creative... More

Enjoyed a top meal with staff friendly and accommodating a group of 8 with no notice, meals were great, the only complaint was getting handed a dirty glass with lipstick still on the edge

Possibly the worst meal I have had in Port Douglas. We waited 40+ minutes to be served a cold meal of very dubious quality while listening to the supposed chef skylarking in the kitchen. The very young serving staff tried their best, but were obviously embarrased. We'll never go there again.
