Great little spot, pretty much the only thing worth note in T1 to be honest. Service was great, food was lovely and prices are about what you would expect given it's in the airport! Nice relaxed atmosphere, helped by the fact the terminal itself is not being that busy. If I was at the airport again its worth getting through... More

This review relates to the Giraffe restaurant in T1. T1 is currently very quiet with only 2 or 3 departures an hour, so, unsurprisingly there not many customers. However my risotto seemed fresh and the service was good. Incidentally, the risotto was advertised as spicy and spicy it was, a bit too spicy for my taste. If you are in... More

Just had an excellent burger and the other food was really good too. Much better than what you'd expect from a quick bite at the airport. Service was fast and friendly.

Nice, low-key eatery in Terminal 5. Staff was friendly and service quick. Menu somewhat limited but with something for everyone. All the waitstaff were multilingual and wore flags corresponding to their language skills on their name tags. Service is guaranteed within 15 minutes of taking your order (and was promptly delivered) but there was no sense of rush to turn... More

pretty busy, friendly and food was pretty good for an airport. Not super fast but ok, they did not make us late for our flight or stressed we would miss it.

We enjoyed it so much as vegetarians, the food's quality was excellent and the salads were fresh. The dishes are colorful and delicious. The lemonade too!
