Handy place to grab a drink and something to eat before flying out of T5. Reasonable selection on menu though slightly over-priced.

Very helpful staff and an efficient and fast service. Decided to try this restaurant at Heathrow Airport on our way from Edinburg to Seattle.Though crowded the hostess was able to quickly find a table for six. The menu though not very exotic is functional and suited for the traveller in a hurry.We tried Hamburger which was brought in QuickTime and... More

Two adults and a nine year old. Having been disappointed with this chain I was a little dubious .. But pleasantly surprised. Drinks and food arrived promptly and all good - especially Mexican Veg breakfast (not called this but auto correct bettered me! You'll recognise from the menus). Not unusual for eateries with no hope of regular customers to be... More

Having been to their restaurant on the Southbank, we decided to eat here whilst waiting to leave the UK, the food appeared to be all ready prepared, and heated in a microwave, and not that appetising, it was very expensive for what we had.

Recommended to us by our daughter-in-law, we had great food, good service and genuinely friendly staff. Very helpful with my wheelchair even though fairly crowded.

Giraffe serves good food all day. I like the menu which is obviously tailored to travelers. You can get breakfast all day and they even have a vegetarian breakfast which works for me. In addition, they have everything from Edamame to Tofu to Hummus. They have Gluten-free dishes, veggie-dishes, salads, sandwiches, salads and burgers. You should be able to find... More

In a nutshell we missed our flight so had to do 'breakfast'. We chose Giraffe out of all the available restaurants mainly because it offered something different for breakfast other than the bacon buttie or greasy egg. We were not disappointed in service, cleanliness and of course the food which was, even though it was busy, was served promptly and... More

Whenever my partner and I are at Heathrow, we eat at Giraffe because the food is excellent compared to other places at the airport. There are different and exciting things on the menu as well as the traditional English breakfast. I'd particular recommend the sunshine burrito and the Giddy Giraffe smoothie!

Although giraffe looks quite appealing with a menu that is interesting and different this unit really is pretty shocking . We were ignored for 10 minutes and then had a chicken dish which was dry and poor . My wife's salad had died a long time ago and should not have been served . When we pointed this out to... More

We had a meal at Giraffe while pushing in time before our next flight. I had the salmon with sweet potato fries which was delicious. My husband wasn't hungry so only had a beer. The cocktails are great too. The waitresses were all running about, constantly busy (even though we were not really in at a meal time) and worked... More
