Came for breakfast before my flight as the grain loft was ridiculously busy. The waiter was lovely and very helpful. Wish I remembered his name but he was Egyptian and one of the harder working staff I saw there. Breakfast was OK. Potatoes a bit over done as we're the sausages but they tasted OK. Did the trick and filled... More

Not sure of this was a bad day or just the sliding standards of Giraffe since being sold by Tesco? Either way the service was good but the food was very bland and sub-standard. We had starters and mains and none of it would make me want to return. Burgers dry and tasteless, squid tasteless, salmon nicely cooked by the... More

Been to quite a few Giraffe restaurants and this was no where near as good as any other I've been in - service was ok - polite but not helpful - food was not as hot as I'm used to at Giraffe - I know this is in a captive market airport setting but that does not excuse lower standards... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast before catching a flight, have visited many other giraffes in the past and food has always been good. We ordered 2 heuvos rancheros with a side of chunky wedges. The huevos' were caked so heavily with cheese none of the other toppings were visible and after a couple of mouthfuls it became too sickly... More

We tried this place for breakfast with our two sons at 7 am before boarding a flight to Vegas , and thought it best to fill up for the long flight , It turned out to be the worst meal we have ever had, overpriced , badly cooked and just slung together, cheap sausage made of gristly paste , ice...

We decided to have some breakfast in Giraffe before boarding our plane. We chose Giraffe as the menu looked really nice. We were seated straight away. It then took quite some time for the waiter to take our order. We had to ask them to take our order as we were due to catch a plane (obviously as we were... More

Waiting for a flight at breakfast I had the croque Monsuier - with egg on top the toast was hardly cooked and the whole thing was a messy globulous blob on a plate - not very appetising and not what you want before a transatlantic flight - I told the waitress i was not happy and she said they would...

I had sour dough toast with hummus and avocado and it was a generous portion although maybe a bit too much hummus. It was tasty if a bit haphazardly presented! The coffee was good and the staff friendly and efficient. I assume the tiny knives have something to do with security but they are very annoying! There was nothing remarkable... More
