We ate here on a busy Tuesday night (kids eat free) in school holidays. Food and Service were great even though it was a very busy night and we did have longer than usual waits while food was prepared. Skylights up to the swimming pool above are a unique feature. Only downside was the limited airflow to the back section... More

Such a shame. We recently visited on the Gold Coast and thought it must have just been unlucky with some pretty average food but I think the general standard of Hog Breath is just no longer there. Gone are the great steaks and replaced with steaks that look like they are microwaved and dry. Such a shame as we enjoyed... More

Right on the waterfront and a view into the pool above from some tables. Service isn't fantastic but the food is good if a little over-priced. A simple kids menu providing the basics but discounts provided if you are staying in some of the nearby hotels and resorts.

We came on a Tuesday which must be family night because they were very busy with kids. We asked to sit somewhere a bit quiet and we could see a corner table available however they said they were trying to close that area. However there were other people in that area and they left after we did. So instead we... More

I have frequently visited hog breath restaurants all over the coast. An I'm not one to complain about a meal but I was disappointed that I had to wait 1.3hrs for 1x potato skins and 2x meals after the lunch rush and their was only a few table left. What didn't help was that non of the waiting staff could... More

We visited for breakfast as they had a deal where you pay for one breakfast and the second is $5, meaning we paid $22 for a 'big breakfast' and $5 extra for Salmon Eggs Benedict (normally $20). The food was well cooked and tasty, however it took a whole hour for it to arrive, and we were the only ones... More

We find Hog's Breath Cafe at Caloundra a perfect venue to get together with family and friends. It's is right on the board walk area with wonderful views of the Passage. The food prices are a little high for the average diner but the variety of food and beverages available are perfect for all. The service on most occasions is... More
