Good food, good service

Came across this restaurant on our wanderings on a rainy Sunday night in Bath. When you see a restaurant that is very empty, you wonder why, as the restaurant across the road that we first went to had run out of a lot of food because they were so busy. Well, I don't understand why, because... read more

We had a delicious evening meal in here, the service was quick and the food beautifully prepared. This was our first visit to this chain but on this evidence we'll certainly return.

Been here a few times now and enjoyed it every time. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service is fast. Great tasting food and great drinks. Came here one evening for drinks and they had live music, lovely atmosphere.

Great menu and variety available. Only criticism was that on both occasions I have been the music was just marginally too loud making conversation difficult. Maybe I'm just getting old but it made me slightly irritable when the children's food turned up a few minutes after the adults! Other than that a nice place to get lunch.

We ordered a meze platter and was it great! A sumptuous and delicious treat with falafels, pita, hummus, halloumi, Labneh and Babaghanoush. Must try! We requested them for a rushed service as we had to catch a bus and they served in exact 10 minutes!

Giraffe is one of my favourite restaurant chains to visit. I am not a picky eater at all, but I have friends with serious allergies, and the provision of gluten free, wheat free, vegetarian main courses and deserts means that it is a number 1 choice! I'm always amazed at the service - the staff are always cheery and friendly... More

Went into Bath shopping with my 20 year old son, which was a treat in itself ! We normally go to the same places to eat, but thought we would try somewhere different for a change. It was a Sunday lunchtime and we were both fairly hungry and were at the bottom end of town. My son had been here... More

The food is good, the portions are generous and the wait service is sweet. It's always clean and tidy too which is always nice, shows they are keeping an eye on things. The only problem I'd say is the bar staff are always mood. Not brilliant people skills. It shouldn't be that hard to serve with a smile and have... More

Myself and my mum visited here on the off chance that we could get a table and have a spot of light lunch after a morning of shopping. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and seated straight away. Shortly afterwards we were asked for our drinks order, then soon after followed up with our food order. It... More
