Free cocktails enticed us in

Offer of free first drink enticed us into the new branded 'burger and cocktails' (apparently trying to appeal to brighton market more than the giraffe branding would). Friendly staff, food was good. Not amazing but the free drinks meant overall cost v reasonable

We go to Brighton once a year and allow our daughter to pick where she wants to eat. she chose the Giraffe as we had eaten there last year. It has now turned into a Burger and Cocktail bar so I was a little unsure but our daughter insisted this was still where she wanted to eat. Her kids menu... More

I had never visited this place before until a friend of mine decided to celebrate her birthday party in there. First impressions were positive; good reception, good decor and spacious venue, nice table to accommodate 16 of us.. Also, the guy who was serving was quite attentive and kept coming to the table to see if wee needed more drinks... More

Very similar to GBK. I would recommend the Falafel burger and sweet potato fries. The alchoholic sundaes are a must.

We went here yesterday with our two children age 4 and 8. The first thing that hits you is the VERY loud music - cant hear anyone talking, even the waitress had to keep asking us to repeat things, and we weren't the only able to mention it either! The restaurant was nearly empty, but the service was very very... More

Master stroke for the supermarket giant buying this chain. Great food, great service but you do pay for it. Brighton shop clean and well themed.

You can't beat Giraffe for a burger. Love the variety and the fresh taste of them. Never greasy, soooo tasty and the slaw is perfection (so good we ordered a portion to take home). Also had breakfast here which was super tasty too. No complaints, just great things to say.

Two lovely evening meals. Quesadilla a bit bland, but the farmers burrito and rack of ribs were good. Customer service good with friendly staff and good deals on food.

After an extensive wait I was served a dry and overcooked salmon and haddock fishcake that was frankly uneatable, I suspect it had been sitting in an oven all day or reheated in a microwave. This came with over whipped mashed potato and coleslaw, frankly the coleslaw was the best thing about this "dish". This was followed by a dessert... More
