Monday night, 5 tables taken in the restaurant one of whom came after us. Got seated quickly and given water, waitress (the manager) said she'd be back in a few minutes to take our order. About 10 minutes later she finally came after we had to wave her back, drinks were fine and didn't take too long. About half an... More

Stayed in Byron Bay for a couple of days and ended up visiting Hog's Breath two times, first time was OK. Next time we was lucky enough to be served by Sandra. A very pleasant young girl from Spain with sparkling eyes that charmed both me and my wife. So if you want to go there, be sure to ask... More

We didn't actually eat there as we stood in the empty restaurant for 10 minutes and when no one came we left. We could hear them talking out the back so I wonder how many other potential customers walked away.

My partner and I went to Hogs Breath for dinner and were disappointed with the customer service. Clearly there was an issue in the kitchen or our order had been lost as we waited almost an hour for our main meal, but that wasn't the problem, we can we wait, but to receive no updates or apologies was frustrating, particularly...

I found Hogs Breath staff very helpful and friendly, the restaurant is clean and the menu offers a great variety of food which is delicious and excellently presented. The restaurant is always busy which is a good indication that it is good.

Our 2 year old just wanted chips...she even... More

We had read and heard so much about Hogs Breath Cafe that it became part of our To Visit list. My husband loves a good steak and the reviews were high. The lady that served us was absolutely a gem and answered all our questions. I think our expectations were a bit too high. Although the steaks were soft we... More

5 couples, 4 steaks over cooked. The bill was higher than expected. The wait for drinks was very long and needed chasing up. Very disappointed! No more Hogs Breath for me!!

Went for a meal on Tuesday night... very poor. Ordered chocolate milk - got milk. Ordered cheesy garlic bread - it was cold. Ordered steaks - they were terrible and tasteless - overcooked (or left on the counter too long). Rock hard. Veggies were cold and undercooked, and sweet potato wedges hot - but deep fried. Then at the end,... More
