Price range: $8 - $29

Description: 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.

A good meal with my friends and quite good value. The service was excellent. The highlight was definitely the sweet potato fries (absolutely amazing) simply a must if you eat here!

We popped in for an early supper when traveling through Bristol to break up the journey. The staff made you feel very welcome and we felt they cared which is unusual to find these days. The food was good to!

Must have been 20 or so times since Cabot Circus opened but never reviewed so thought I would now. Popped in for a quick bite at lunchtime at the weekend. Staff as always were brilliant and we didn’t have to wait long for the food to arrive. Friend had the nachos which although are probably meant for sharing was a... More

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

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?????
