Went it for what should have been a nice diner. We're sat by the kitchen which should have been a lovely spot, instead ended up having to listen to the chef hurling abuse at the waitresses and even the manager's! Treating them like cattle and asking if they were stupid?! Made me feel quite uncomfortable when waitress came back over... More

Sometimes you don't want 'full English" particularly if you've had a big meal the night before or looking for something not so 'full of fat' - this is the place. Good menu and delicious food - so much so I tried to see there was one closer to home in the Nottingham or Leicester - there want. I would have... More

We came here on what happened to be Valentine's Day as we were visiting my son. It was only 5pm, but the initial waitress said that we could only have the table for an hour as it was going to get busy with couples later. We had hoped to hang out until around 7pm as we were going to the... More

It was the first time both my friend and I had eaten at a Giraffe Restaurant - and it was brilliant! The service was fantastic and the food was delicious! Thank you to all staff for a pleasant meal!

When we come to Bristol, if isn't IKEA meatballs then it's Giraffe at Cabot. Service always with a smile. Excellent location as the first restaurant you come to from the car park bridge. Food has never let us down. Loved it every time.

After a long weekend in Bath, we decided to visit Bristol for our last day. We came across this funky looking restaurant and read the menu...we just had to go in! The decor is so bright and happy, the music is great and all the staff were smiling and clearly enjoying their job. We thought that we would go all... More

We visited here for lunch during our trip to Bristol. We went here because I saw a voucher for 2 meals for the price of 1 on their website and took advantage of this. It was rather quiet when we went but we were served immediately and ordered quickly. Our food and drink were both tasty and we had two... More

Very plain Jane. The classic burger I ordered was quite tough and featured no sauces, making it dry. The chips on the side could have come from a swimming pool canteen. At least the nachos were fairly tasty, though, and the service good (fast and friendly). In all a bland dining experience I don't really wish to repeat. Filled my... More

Description
We wanted to create a friendly, welcoming place where a smile goes a long way! It's about exploring the wonderful foods from around the globe and opening our ears to music from around the world. Giraffes are so tall they see a different view of the world. We LOVE fresh ideas. Giraffe is operated by the original founders Juliette and Russel Joffe and Andrew Jacobs who all have an active role in the day to day management of the business. Giraffe was acquired in March 2013 by Tesco as part of its strategy to utilise some of the space in their larger stores, creating retail destinations that offer customers, in particular families, a compelling experience outside of their weekly shopping trip.
