Not sure who owns this chain or restaurant anymore but it isn't what it was. Years ago we were regulars. We went again looking for a great steak and it is a shell of what it used to be. Everything has dropped down a couple of notches. Service, food, coldness of beer. The lot. The menu is still great. If... More

If it had not been for our friendly French waitress this could have been a disaster first night out in Byron. The balcony edge table was a great place to get a perspective of Byron overlooking the passers by and happenings. Our French waitress was friendly and helpful but the restaurant appeared to have poor coordination. My 13yo daughter ordered... More

I have to start by saying the food was good, not great, but good. The service was friendly but there was just no atmosphere about the place, for a Saturday night it was very quiet...The disappointing part came from the cleanliness of the place, it was dirty and sticky, everywhere...Lucky we had a baby which meant we had baby wipes...

Having visited the Hogs breath cafe in Coolangatta with which we were really impressed we thought we would try this one in Byron. On entering the premises the place was empty apart from a couple of tables and we were greeted if you could call it that by a young waiter who made a big song and dance about us... More

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.
