I love hogs breath! This outlet was no letdown. It was a bit smaller and not decorated as ellaboratly as others, but is still very welcoming and has a great atmosphere. It wasn't as loud and didn't echo as much other places I have been so it was easy to talk.

Food excellent .. reasonably priced. One hour's wait between ordering and receiving meal! Staff smiley and polite, but the delay kind-of takes away one's appetite! We arrived quite late for lunch and the restaurant was NOT overly busy.

Have scored 1 purely for the poor waitresses caught in the middle of this catastrophe. Visited from the uk in a party of 9. Nothing really went right. 2 combo starters orders. Eventually arrived; still waiting for drinks. Drinks eventually arrived and our orders for main courses were taken. A good 15 minutes later the waitress returned to inform us... More

I don't understand it! Most Hogs Breaths are very popular but this one just doesn't work! On the busy nights of Fri, Sat and Sun, this place is always empty! Last Friday night almost every restaurant nearby was chock a block with diners but we were the only customers in the HB! It's a dark dingy place with an open... More

Went with the whole family in December. All the standard Hogs Breath fare was up to scratch but the stand out was the friendly and happy girls that looked after us. Did the franchise proud!

We had two meals there on our trip to Coolangatta because of the beautiful steaks. Melt in your mouth

You get what you pay for at this restaurant. While our food was okay, it was the service that really got our attention. Very friendly staff but they do not intrude and try to be part of the group. Thought the steaks seemed a little bit over priced but that is not why we were there.

We were looking for a casual place with comfort food. We were not expecting a high end meal so Hog's Breath Cafe seems perfect. The server was great. She brought our drinks and food quickly. She was friendly with a good sense of humour. She explained the special cooking process they used for the prime rib so we ordered it.... More
