A chain restaurant offering standardised fare at a value price. Good service. We just walked in and saw no need to book ahead. There is an outdoor dining area but in the hot weather the air conditioned indoor booths were just welcome and perfect. Located brilliantly for Palazzo Versace and Sheraton Mirage.

We love Hogs Breath, the food is always plentiful & great quality. On this particular occasion we just popped in for the 2 platters & a quick drink. A great spot to fuel up for our Jet Ski adventure.

Situated near the complex at Mariners Cove this is a busy place. I thought they went out of there way to make sure kids entertained with crayons and colouring sheets but eating with kids was expensive here. The food we were served was ok the burgers were very well received. Probably best in the evenings for Adults.

I visited the Doveton restaurant for the 2nd time after a first visit in 2013. The ambiance was less lively probably because it was a week day. However the steak with a good hickory basting sauce was excellent. Medium rare is what you get. Will definitely keep HBC in my list of to check in.

- Waiter was friendly until he decided to sit across from me to take my order. - Asked for Medium-Rare, they decided to cook it well done instead - don't bother ordering the mushroom sauce it's too creamy - rather have the $2 steak at waxy's than drop $40 on what they call a prime rib - don't bother asking...

Walked in to Hog's Breath with my daughter after a whale watching trip. We were greeted by a young man who asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. We opted for inside and directed to a section of bench seats. I sat down and felt like I was being squashed...ridiculously tight and uncomfortable and there would be no... More

Very good restaurant to take the family. Plenty of choice, and it's not quiet, so if kids make noise...that's ok. Staff were friendly and steak was excellent.

Thank love to travel @ australia
