Can't think of a good reason to return

Overpriced, underfull plates, small drinks. That pretty much sums up a place which really is as pretentious as it gets. The food is, at best average, it is far more pricey than the quality suggests it should be. If you order a soft drink, then expect to have to order another one fairly shortly... read more

I would not have usually touched Tesco owned Giraffe with a barge pole. However, in October we had a really good meal at there restaurant in a Manchester airport. So I decided to give this branch a go I took my son and niece out, the place was half full and the staff friendly. However, the systems are simply there... More

The food is delicious as always and the staff are really nice but my husband had chicken which was bleeding. It was replaced by another meal and taken off the bill. Still one of the best places to eat.

I had a very tasty breakfast here with friends on Monday. It was my first time eating at Giraffe and we were very impressed. Good service and good food - no complaints from us! I ate a breakfast burrito and it was very yummy and filling, the coffee was good too. My friends also enjoyed their choices. Next time I'm... More

I had a very enjoyable visit to Giraffe with friends. We were the last people in and the service was terrific! The food was excellent too. Duck noodle stir fry and toffee apple crumble were both excellent dishes. My friend who usually cannot eat a lot before he gets full, finished a full rack of ribs, chips and a rocky... More

What a let down. The food was great, the service was poor. We arrived and were told to take a seat, the waiter didn't guide us to our seat. He instructed us to sit int he corner and he'll be "over when he can". Surprising considering they weren't busy. That set the tone of service. Poor and not very helpful.... More

Just what we needed first thing Saturday morning after a night our prior. I had the full breakfast which was more than enough to set me up for the day. Good service and venue.

Ate here with friends on a Friday evening. The food was gorgeous, all six of us in the group were very impressed. Recommend the jombolia risotto with chicken and chorizo, amazing! Only let down was the atmosphere, the restaurant was very quiet and felt the staff were glad when we left so they could get away early :( We will... More

We stopped her for dinner, they had a promo on that meant that the kids meals were free when an adult ordered a main meal,as a group of 6 this was perfect as we ordered 3 mains and 3 of the children got their meals free. I had the ribs and they were lovely. My daughter had the chicken burger... More
