We chose Hog's Breath Cafe at Westfield Carindale because we knew it was air-conditioned on a very hot summer day. It seems a lot of other people had the same idea because the cafe was full. The service from the friendly waitress was excellent. It was no trouble to make a small change to one of their menu items to... More

Although I believe the restaurant is noisy the service and food is highly recommended and a comfortable atmosphere for lunch

I dined here with three other ladies two weeks ago. The waitresses were nice and our meals enjoyable. As it was our friend's birthday, I had brought along a pavlova as the birthday cake but kept the cream and strawberries separate as one of our group was lactose intolerant. It didn't occur to me when I handed the pavlova to... More

I have been to other Hogs Breath Cafes and they were bad with a big B. But Carindale was good. Located at Carindale shopping centre - the restaurant was clean , the service quick and the food not bad. I had a steak - cooked medium as ordered. My daughter had one of the kids chicken meals. All up $42.... More

We were meeting up with friends and wanted somewhere a bit quieter that the buzz of the food court. Roomy restaurant with long tables ideal for a group of friends. Lunch specials are good value.

I have to admit, I wasn't really expecting much, you just never really know what you're going to get with those chain restaurants but I was pleasantly surprised. If it's a steak fix you are craving well you won't go far wrong here, my steak was cooked perfectly and the accompaniments are not bad, curly fries and raw slaw, the... More

We have been here a few times and always founds the service to be good. Menu is set out well and you can always add items to you menu. The location is downstairs from event cinemas so it is a great place to eat or have refreshments prior to the movies. Parking can be an issue sometimes depending on what... More

Wanting a quick bite for lunch I checked out the lunch time specials at Hogs Breath Cafe. It was just ok, but I could get better food from the food court. Table service was good. Would I go again for lunch? probably not. I can not comment on the main menu, however it did look expensive for a steak joint.

We had a work Christmas luncheon here and all in all it was a decent meal but at the same time pretty uninspiring. Prices are reasonable on many items but some are just over the top - $9 for a small slice of mudcake is ridiculous (I can buy the whole mudcake at Woolworths for $5). Also baffles me how... More

Went to Hog`s Breath Café Carindale with the family for an evening meal and found the staff friendly but that was all. The steak meal was terrible tasteless full of grisly the vegetables were old and cold along with the baked potato. When paying a large amount of money for a steak meal one expects a better meal then what... More
