I can recommend the bacon and scrambled eggs made freshly with chive. Bacon is properly crispy, sourdough bread is toasted and there is even a proper French butter, plus lovely flat white. Also complimentary glass of water, sauces and tiny wet wipe. Staff are great too. Perfect!

First time trying this "world" food brunch restaurant on our way back to the railway station. Good choice menu, fast friendly service and reasonable final bill. ( I asked them to take off the optional 10% included and left cash instead). We had a couple of fresh smoothies, Chicken Yaki Gyozas starter (okay with chilli dip), Chicken Milanese (very good)...

I had a delicious starter( chicken tacos) I was really looking foward to my main. I had ordered the short ribs. The main came very quick, I was excited! When I delved deep into the rib, to my disgust all I found was fat. I was deeply shocked at £16.95 I thought this to be quite poor. I called the... More

Burgers were not freshly made and looked like typical frozen burgers the rice that came with my chicken was tasteless and hard in places overall disappointing would not go again. Annoyingly a service charge had also been added to bill which did not say Wait staff receive 100% of the tips like... More

I came here with my boyfriend for lunch and it was a very pleasant atmosphere and were made to feel special especially as we were the only customers at the time. The menu was lacking in availability but we were informed that this was because they were about to change the food on the menus. We were more or less... More

The chef seems not to have come across the golden rule: "serve hot food on a hot/warm plate, serve cold food on a cold plate". My dish of rigatoni was nice and warm in the middle of the portion but almost cold round the sides where it had touched the plate. They were kind enough to take it back and... More

Food took a lil long to come. The food was okay a little bland but okay staff was wonderful the drinks are really nice. I would say it could be a lil warmer in there. Churros were good overall nice experience. Just food needed more seasoning

My brother chose this restaurant for his birthday meal with family and friends. There was 20 of us and this was no problem for their staff to handle. All drink and food orders were taken in a great time and the food was delivered in no time. My mum had the Katsu Chicken and she said "it was the best... More

Holidaying in Oxford recently we went to Giraffe twice. Firstly to catch up with friends and secondly with my two children (9 and 12). Its a family friendly restaurant with a range of different cuisines. Its buzzy and vibrant, quick, friendly service. The lunch special meals are particularly good value. I can recommend the Rueben. Plenty of food and variety... More
