“Trendy looking place, but poor meal, overpriced, will not be going again”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Nice place to sit, looks the part BUT £2.45 for a glass of coke is overpriced, the burgers were overcooked and like leather!! The waitress asked us how we liked them done on ordering we said medium on pointing this out when served we were then told they had been told they have to overcook them ... Health and safety !!! and why automatically include a 10% tip in the bill !! Let the customer decide! Why charge extra £1.45 for a "extra" sauce. It a bit of bbque sauce ? The homemade burger place a few shops down is much better. Sorry. All in all not worth £26 Ronnie Mac would have been better value !! ( nearly )

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Visited meadowhall specifically for the Giraffe restaurant. Having visited a restaurant elsewhere in the UK I was hooked. The food is delicious and resonable priced, we had the lunch time menu which is cheaper then the main menu but just as tasty. Myself and my friend both ordered tea and we fell in love with the littel teapots they are served in... Shame they no longer sell them. Definately be visiting again.

“Delicious”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Visited Sheffield for a night away with my other half, after wandering around Meadowhall checking out menus we decided on Giraffe.

Never before in a restaurant have I seen so many things I fancy on a menu! After much deliberating I chose the mezze platter which was absolutely delicious! My hubby had a chicken burger which he also really enjoyed!

We were fortunate enough to be there during 'bar buddies' time and were able to enjoy cocktails and bottles of lager for half price (so of course we had twice as many ;-)

Afterwards we had desserts and coffee which were also very good!

The girl who served us was very friendly and the atmosphere was great!

Would definitely go again if we're ever in the area!

“We had a giraffe!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited meadowhall with this place in mind. We were lucky enough to arrive in time for the half price cocktails which were lovely apart from a lack of mint in the mojitos.
The sharing hummus and tapenade starter went down really well and we also had the asparagus, this came in a delicious sauce but unfortunately the asparagus was way too al dente even for us who usually like it slightly crunchy.

All the mains, (noodles, risotto, falafel burger and salad) were fantastic and the side of sweet potato chips were fought over! All washed down with a really nice primativo.

For pudding we had the lemon sundae which was nice apart from the disconcerting fluorescent lemon sauce and the lack of promised meringue.

Overall, really nice meal but think the cocktails definitely helped!
