Giraffe is my and my friends' default UK airport restaurant. For some godforsaken reason I always seem to end up flying first thing in the morning so it's always a relief to find a Giraffe at the terminal. The breakfast menu is great and they offer an all day brunch alongside a whole load of vegetarian options. Today was no... More

While waiting for my flight, I had a great meal at Giraffe. The service was swift and friendly. I had toasted bread with hummus, lettuce and tomatoes, and it was fresh and delicious.

Just go to Giraffe in terminal 5 in Heathrow airport, that's how. Not edible is how I would classify the food. Was traveling with friends, they got the burgers, and was very ordinary. Problem is, there are not a lot of places to eat in terminal 5. Would avoid Giraffe like the plague, McDonalds is gourmet in comparison.

Me and my partner ate here while waiting to board our flight to Las Vegas. It caught our eye with its bright colours and fantastic runway views. There was a 5 minute wait for our table, as you'd expect at a busy time in such a busy terminal. The waitress showed us to our seats and handed us a menu... More

for airport dining. It was quite a varied dink and food menu and the service was good. I get very tired of food courts, so this was a welcome relief. I, however, was in Terminal 5. This must be a new location for them, based on other reviews. They attempt to provide prompt service.

They have a good kids menu and are very accommodating for families. They are fast with good tasting food for an airport restaurant.

Me and my wife had dinner at the Giraffe restaurant in Heathrow airport terminal one as there was not much to choose from because the terminal was closing operation and Icelandair was one of the last airlines still there. After looking over the menu many times I finally choose the BBQ chicken & smoked cheedar Quesadilla. After a very slow... More

Should you find yourself at Heathrow with some time on your hands and a pit in your stomach, there are few choices for a sit-down meal, at least at Terminal 5. That said, it's well worth your while to have that meal at Giraffe. It has a huge selection from a world-wide menu, "A Fresh View of the World." We... More

This was a first ever visit to T5 and we settled for here to feed a party of mainly kids and six adults, as the last reviewer said it is more expensive than a Boots meal deal but then it's a much better experience. What really impressed us was that the serving staff asked if we wished to use their... More
