In Byron Bay for 4 days. This was our last night. Most of Byron is filled with 20's - 30's surfers, naturally. This bar ain't for them. Upstairs, hard to find but worth the effort. Dark (maybe a little too dark as we all had to us our phone flashlights to see the menu), great decor of log cabin wood,... More

We went last night with 6 adults, two children. I'd suggest pre booking a table on the balcony! Great view of busy Byron. The staff were very accommodating with my children, something I'm always worried about when going out with them. The kids meals came out straight away after entrees, then all our food (6 other meals) came out straight... More

Pretty average experience. Wait staff was ok. The food was awful. The bruschetta was just cherry tomatoes with raw garlic and hardly any onion. Two steaks ordered were awful. One overcooked, the other bleeding red. Both were ordered as medium. And at the end no one even thought to ask how the food or experience was.... I have been to... More

The restaurant is upstairs above one of the main streets. Its a chain restaurant which provides a wide range of food. Ask if there are any specials which are good quality and reasonably priced. The service was prompt and friendly.

Went to hogs breath this morning with two friends, stood at the "please wait to be seated" sign for about 5 minutes until we started calling out "hello is anyone here" after walking to and from the bar back to the counter and not seeing anyone. Our first waitress was lovely, she sat us where we asked to be sat... More

Hogs Breath... when did you become so horrible! My partner and I went to Hogs Breath for dinner. Sat in a terrible window location... but that was the least of the issues. My partner ordered a juice off the menu... 10 minutes later we were told they did not have that particular juice. The cheesy garlic bread came out with... More

Not sure who owns this chain or restaurant anymore but it isn't what it was. Years ago we were regulars. We went again looking for a great steak and it is a shell of what it used to be. Everything has dropped down a couple of notches. Service, food, coldness of beer. The lot. The menu is still great. If... More

If it had not been for our friendly French waitress this could have been a disaster first night out in Byron. The balcony edge table was a great place to get a perspective of Byron overlooking the passers by and happenings. Our French waitress was friendly and helpful but the restaurant appeared to have poor coordination. My 13yo daughter ordered... More
