The menu suited me very well, lots of healthy (but still tasty) and veggie options. The drinks were lovely too... read more

Menu was explained along with diner specials. Opted for chorizo carbonara. Arrived promptly, although questioned if was correct, server assuredly and also got more chorizo to be sure. Meal had lots... More

We visited the cabot circus branch for lunch and the herby no bun with vegan salad was gorgeous and an iced tea of camomile and green tea was refreshing. Lovely location and flavourful lunch, wish we had one nearer to us as would be a firm fave!

Great location, sat outside in sunshine looking forward to chilli beef burrito for lunch. Capuchino excellent, staff friendly and welcoming HOWEVER on arrival, disected burrito attempting diligently to locate 'beef'? Two very small offerings, rest packed out with rice and, what would appear to be, some sort of ratatouille. Accompanied mixed side salad as expected. Cannot believe this 'mains' was... More

This is based on an American type menu so we ordered a Mexican chicken burger, and a rodeo chicken burger, both came with chips, the location of the restaurant is great if... More

Drinks took a while to arrive even though restaurant was empty, my lemonade did taste good though when it eventually arrived. Opted for the salad and herbed chicken as a healthier option. chicken was very dry and so was the salad. I asked for no avocado so maybe that would have made it better but not impressed with how unappetising... More

Yesterday myself and my friends went to giraffe to celebrate my friends 21st. When we arrived the place was very busy but we were warmly welcomed and seated straight away. Orders were taken swiftly, and due to how busy it was the food didn't come out straight away but that was understandable! We all had different meals and thoroughly enjoyed... More
