Good place to grab a bite to eat at airport

Stopped here briefly before boarding my flight to Athens. There were problems checking in at terminal 5 that night for some reason & it took forever so I really did not have much time to eat. I explained this to the waitress & she was great, taking my order straight away & the food came really... read more

Maybe it's because it's an airport branch but Giraffe is awful here! The food quality is just really poor and it's such a shame as it used to be good! The burger was just icky...better at Burger King, and the salad was just thrown together. Last time we visit Giraffe when we're travelling from Heathrow.

Everything is pretty mediocre apart from the speed of the service. If you are in a hurry to catch a flight you can still spare time to get a snack or a meal and drink.

I sat with my family, and although the waitress was prompt with our appetizer, the food never came. A large group came in after us and received their food. Turns out there was a miscommunication, but this was never explained, I had to ask. My Mom who is older was very upset, so I sought out the supervisor to have... More

This is one of my favourite places to eat at Heathrow T5 and other Terminals. Their prices are reasonable for Airport location. Staff are very efficient and friendly. Nice atmosphere and sitting environment. Adequate to families with children too. I recommend the Classic burger (£10) or the rump steak baguette (£10.95). Bruschetta (£5.95) is OK too if you are not... More

Saturday night was very busy so we were seated outside and given rugs for our knees which was a nice touch . Food was piping hot and delicious . Found the total bill quite pricey but we had wine and... More

Staff members were very pleasant and welcoming. The interior resembles more of a California casual experience. There are specials on a few days of the week. Check out their website for the special day menu. One day is a burger day and one day is a steak day. I had eaten a other Giraffe restaurants during past stays for a... More
