Food and service was great as expected but restaurant was not airconditioned and it was a very hot day. There were fans but we were seated away from them. We could have sat outside but it was too hot there too!

The entree was disappointing the calamari were deep fried and very oily. It's seemed as they have or are changing certain parts of the... More

I tried this restaurant when I was in the Gold Coast. I decided to try their 18 hour slow cooked Prime Rib Steak. For steak that was slow cooked, it was full of gristle. The rest of the meal was very greasy. The staff was unfriendly and when my friend asked for a toothpick, he was told where to go... More

The Hog's Breath is , of course, part of a chain group. This DOES NOT DETER from their food and service. Now, from a food snob's perspective and point of view their menu leaves a lot to be desired. In saying so even food snobs occasionally fall from the wayside, and when I do. Its Hog's Breath.. There is nowhere... More

Dated, grotty and as my partner remarked "everything felt sticky", no air-conditioning, food over priced and tasteless, most of our dinner was microwaved and floppy. I wanted to take home the remainder of my salad and was given a box to do it myself. Hog' Breath Cafe you are in desperate need of a Gordon Ramsey style makeover.

Went there for lunch on a weekend, just before the crowd started to flow in. We got seated instantly. My steak was so tender and juicy. I enjoyed my plate a lot, except for the red cabbage. Their dessert menu looked inviting, but I didn't have enough room so that's for next time, for sure.

We enjoyed our meal but the restaurant was very very busy as kids eat free on Monday. We had to wait 45 mins for a table then only was a bat table waited for another 15mind with two starving kids. Service was slow and not that great. The food was great but not amazing.

Couldn't believe the complete lack of service on the Gold Coast, its supposed to be a tourist town, but the poorly trained staff just can't grasp what service is about. We turned up later in the evening, only to be told they weren't open, even after ring b4 arriving, after much discussion they agreed to feed us, while we ate... More

We were staying up the road at Sea World Resort and ventured out for dinner. Even though it was a Friday night and we had no reservation we were seated immediately. The server was quick to come and check on us after we had been seated and given menus, and we were able to place our order quickly. Something we... More
