We wanted to create a friendly, welcoming place where a smile goes a long way! It's about exploring the wonderful foods from around the globe and opening our ears to music from around the world. Giraffes are so tall they see a different view of the world. We LOVE fresh ideas. Giraffe is operated by the original founders Juliette and Russel Joffe and Andrew Jacobs who all have an active role in the day to day management of the business. Giraffe was acquired in March 2013 by Tesco as part of its strategy to utilise some of the space in their larger stores, creating retail destinations that offer customers, in particular families, a compelling experience outside of their weekly shopping trip.

Very friendly service

After a day of covering miles and miles of Bristol by foot with the Shaun in the city trail we were desperate to find somewhere to rest our feet with delicious food. Giraffe was great with very friendly service, the waiters made conversation and very bubbly and outgoing. The food was yummy the... read more

WhT made this dining experience great was the staff, food of course was top quality but the staff were the icing in the cafe. Good value for money and they do half price of selected alcoholic drinks. Will be trying the restaurant in different cuties.

I've been to a few giraffe restaurants and really love he menu. This one although it has the great menu, lack in service! On arrival I had to go and find someone to see if it was ok to get a table. The place was virtually empty so we needn't have asked really. When we found the male waiter he... More

Visited garaffe in Cabot circus with my friend in May. Food was really good (we both had the chicken rodeo burger, which was delicious!) The waitress we had was really nice too. Wasn't very busy, so lacked a bit of atmosphere but it was a Thursday night rather than a Friday or Saturday, so maybe that was why. Otherwise really... More

The staff members were quick to service and had great enthusiasm. Menu was a good range, not too much that it... More

Visited Giraffe in Calbot Circus. Looking for an informal tasty dinning experience. Menu- smaller than I recall it used to be, unless you wanted a burger or a 'typical British dish' there was only a choice of six or seven dishes beyond this. Although this may be, I chose the chorizo carabonara- tasty, filling modern twist on an Italian classic,... More
