Having planned to go to Zizzi for a birthday lunch we changed our plans at the last minute when we realised it was closed for refurbishment. I am so glad we did however, since we had a delicious meal and probably would not have tried it otherwise! I liked the mix of food on the menu and it offered us... More

Great to sit in the outside area for breakfast. Staff not overly enthusiastic but friendly and efficient. Full breakfast, pankcakes and eggs on toast all very good and well priced

I was pleasantly surprised when we went here for breakfast, we all had different meals and were all impressed with the quality of the food as it tasted fresh and very good, and service was also very good. The only negative is a personal thing I HATE optional service charge, if its optional why is it on the bill?????

My friend and I went to Giraffe on a whim, to get lunch before a movie, and ended up having a really amazing time. She's vegetarian and I'm not, and we both managed to find dishes to our liking (in fact we actually had trouble picking from all the delicious-sounding dishes on the menu). In the end, she had a...

I visited on a Monday tea time with a group of friends. The restaurant was not busy at all. We were shown to a table and drinks order taken straight away. There was a wide choice of food available at reasonable prices. Our order consisted of vegetable jambalaya, paranoid linguini, duck stir fry and chicken salad. The food was quickly... More

In Bristol shopping and thought we would have lunch. Got turned away from Nando's as no free tables so went to Giraffe. My first visit and what a pleasurable experience. The staff managed to find us a table outside and food was really good. A good experience overall on a busy Saturday afternoon.

Greasiest burger I've ever eaten, but don't like to create a scene so worked my way through it until the waitress asked how the food was. I tried to be polite and said it was nice (wife was enjoying the jambalaya, despite the portion size being small and not including even a token salad) and she asked 'just nice?', at... More

The husband was away so decided to do some retail therapy and have a bite of eat. I don't usually like to eat somewhere with a waitress service on my own but thought I'd give it a go. It was a Saturday but 3pm so not that busy. I was acknowledged and then had to wait over 5 mins whilst... More
