Dont bother booking for starters, the only thing you are told is you have to order a main meal per person! Really ? I was looking forward to 2 x entrees plus a bottle of wine... I'm exempt Husband wanted entree + main + desert...+ drinks ...... Alas , I didn't even get past the front door because we had no updated phone, no apps, no email etc.. Person wanted to touch my phone & set up apps... for starters our phones are old, no apps, oh what is an app ? said will sign our life away etc.... NO you cant come in , Really if they actually got their facts right, you can take license no. etc.... Since when has the Mountain shut down due to covoid ? Oh wanted to book a booth, right.... No No No we are too lazy & its not cost efficient for us to clean them..... REALLY DISAPPOINTING EEXPERIANCE My Husband was taking me out special because I had just got diagnosed with stage 4 cancer A LOCAL WAS TREATED THIS WAY TONIGHT WHEN IT WAS A REALLY SPECIAL OCCASION will never come again & will tell everyone of our experience . why would you send a visitor......... Thanks for really making a bad day even worse !!!!!!!!!!!, went to Clancys with no problem, great meal, great staffMore

Stumbled across this in the best strip on Tamborine (which is not hard given how filthy Gallery Walk has become). Sat outside on a nice deck, we had the prawns and the pork belly - both were exceptional. Lots of little touches on the plates...that showed they really care. Atmosphere was great too. Staff were knowledgeable and very friendly. We will be back.More

Staying in the North Tambourine village we quickly heard of the best places in town to eat and one was the 3 pigs. The advice I was given was the pork belly should not be missed and it is a right of passage up here...to have that the first time you go, now I must point out that we did have a late lunch at Clancy’s and with an early close at 3 pigs we had to be there by 7:30. But in true form we got dressed and rocked up dead on 7:30, I see now why I was told to book it was fairly full. The interior has art work on the walls that you could buy, some did look rather nice. Staff very well presented and super polite, I knew what I wanted and the better half went for the steak. Well I can honestly say that this was the largest portion of Pork belly I have ever been served, normally you get that small rectangle or three small squares , but his came out as on generous slice form the bell cut itself, and thick to boot. While the wife was looking at her steak which looked plums and definitely either medium rare or rare and it bounced each time she pressed it, i surgically removed the crackling from the meat and set a side , and yes there will be purist cringing that I did that but I do like to removed that really fatty portion just under the skin and next to the first layer of meat, whoops another set of purist upset, ah well. By which time I was ready to slice me a mouthful off and I noticed that wifey was struggling to cut her steak, now it was not down to the meat, but more to the serrated knife, this steak was cooked so well I suggest a really sharp non serrated knife so it slices through the meat and not actually tears at it, due to the height and plumpness as it makes it roll back and forth. So I sliced her a few morsels to get on with so I could get back to my review, the pork belly !!! So in theory I should stop reviewing food as I found it hard to describe the soft delicate state I found myself in with that first mouthful. I could hear angels calling me “love, love, love” then a sharp pain in my leg brought me too, Karen wanted to tell me about her steak. Half way through I began to roo the late and heavy lunch and I knew I was not going to finish it all , so heed my advice, remain hungry, control yourself, because once you have dined here and feasted on the pork belly you will thank me. Sorry I have to go now need to change the bandage on my shin!, just kidding nothing more than a mere bruise. Thanks for reading TomMore

When we first entered I was a little unsure of the service we would get as their were only two floor staff and it was busy. But they both exceeded expectation and probably deserve a raise. We got what they were famous for pork belly...along with added prawns known as the OINK & SURF. It was a massive meal and made perfectly. The pork belly was tender and prawns were battered just enough with a burst of flavour. It all melts in your mouth. Definitly recommend this place.More

We spent nye at this restaurant and returned 10 days later. The service is good. Very efficient. Food great. We had the dumplings fir starters. Their speciality is pork belly. Don’t miss it. The crackling is second to none . Fabulous flavour and sauces. Best...potato salad I’ve had fir a while. The prawn and mango salad was delicious. We will go there whenever we are in the mountains.More

We love delicious food, and whilst we follow chef hat restaurants, we really don’t care if it’s cheap or high-end, as long as it’s good. This place is seriously amazing. We were visiting from Sydney and I’m telling everyone that even remotely lives near this...place (up to the Sunshine Coast) that it’s a MUST visit and worth the drive. It was our first visit to Mount Tamborine anyway so such a lovely area to explore regardless. We ordered the garlic bread which was actually a highlight. The BEST garlic bread I’ve had anywhere, ever (huge call)! The salt and pepper prawns were pretty awesome too. Won’t say it’s the best seasoning/batter I’ve ever tried, but the prawns themselves were the enormous, juicy and definitely worth it. Recommend getting the main size to yield double the prawns but not double the price. The calamari was absolutely tender beyond belief and their signature pork belly was huge and wow wow wow. We didn’t try their signature gnocchi but the table next to us raved about it. Do yourself a favour and visit although bookings are essential. We booked last minute calling at 11am on the day. The people in front of us were turned away because the place was full. Check out all the pig figurines whilst tour there too. Such a funky restaurant, you cannot miss.More

We ordered the oink and surf and the ricotta gnocchi. The pork, crackling and jus was absolutely delicious, the potato salad was good but the prawns weren’t worth the extra. Gnocchi was delicious as well but it was expensive. Very stylish and quirky place in...Mount Tamborine, worth the visit.More

Came here on a date night and was blown away by the food. I’ve never tasted such incredible pork dishes. I order the sticky pork and my partner ordered the oink and surf with prawns. Neither of us were disappointed. The meals were a great...size and the flavours were just to die for. We also started with a garlic bread which was so much more tasty than your average garlic bread. Would recommend a visit to anyone staying in this region.More

Maybe ask the restaurant - I was only a guest dining there.
