Child friendly excellent restaurant

I was rather sceptical about booking this restaurant after reading some of the reviews but I went ahead and booked it for myself and my granddaughter her parents and my son. I am so glad we did - the staff were welcoming and we were shown to our table straight away, the service was good without... read more

We had breakfast here on both days during a recent stay in Manchester because it was so good on our first visit. The space is slightly cavernous but the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the service was really outstanding. Everyone who served us seemed to be genuinely happy to be at work and helping you have a great time.... More

Went for lunch with family, including 18 month old grandchild. Very friendly and efficient staff. Well used to dealing with young children (food came before adults so it could cool down, and hot plate was not put directly in front of child). Brilliant food. All round better than giraffe branches in Meadowhall and Leeds.

Visited the Giraffe in Spinningfields for lunch today and had an absolutely lovely time. The service was fantastic - the staff were friendly, helpful and brilliant with the children. The food was fresh, delicious, healthy and well presented. It is hard to find a restaurant that is child friendly in Spinningfields but Giraffe completely exceeded all expectations.

My mum, sister and two nieces had lunch at Giraffe on Saturday. Food was lovely, 4 of us had burritos and mum had cod. All our meals were delicious. Had a couple of drinks each and 4 side dishes and the bill came to just over £100 which was great value. What made our experience outstanding was the staff who... More

Terrible service, waiters are dashing around and getting orders wrong, plates coming out at different times etc. Food was appalling for the price (steak sandwhich) was overcooked and a tenner!

There was only one lady doing the counter service and table orders, she was rushed of her feet but did her utmost to try and satisfy the customers she served. We had the pancake stack which was nicely presented however the pancakes were luke warm... More

Very nice food and very convenient location for a quick lunch or early dinner. The starter, steak and salad was quite nice and the service was amazing. The hostess is so attentive,friendly and cheerful, just made my day brighter! Thanks for that and cheers!
