Popped in for lunch on a Friday, was greeted straight away by a super polite waitress and was never left waiting. Everyone working there seemed happy to be there and were knowledgable about products. Over all great lunch time :)

My kids love Giraffe and so do I, we are all vegetarian and there is always something on the menu we all like, a rare occurrence! The restaurant was a little hard to find as the location on Giraffe's website was inaccurate. The restaurant itself when we got there was really nice, the atmosphere was good too. There was a...

I came here with a few colleagues after work for an early evening get together. We were quickly seated and given menus. The BB offer was explained to us (half price on any item marked BB before 7pm) and our order for cocktails was taken. After our drinks arrived our food order was taken (we all opted for burgers). It... More

This was my first visit to a Giraffe restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Visited on a Wednesday evening and there were only a couple of tables in but it still had a nice atmosphere. We were informed about the Bar Buddies promotion (50% off selected drinks) so I was delighted to be able to try a few bargain cocktails, all... More

It was pretty much the only place in that part of Manchester with tables on Sat night, don't unders why as everything about our visit was excellent!! Food to die for, very accommodating to allergies and intolerances too. The service was friendly and efficient. Cannot fault the place. It will be a first choice next time!!

I pop in here every day for my coffee and it genuinely brightens my day if I need it sometimes. The staff are lovely and friendly, the coffee is lovely and excellent value. There are now a gang of staff from my floor who all go for their morning coffee through word of mouth. Sometimes my work colleagues and I... More

Spur of the moment. Genuinley impressed. Great service, given time to ponder the menu etc. Good choice of beers as well as wine. Good food great choice and not expensive. Lemon and blueberry steamed pudding is a must.

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 after, I doubt it is even... 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
