I know it is a cheap place to eat at the Airport but hot food is not hard to achieve. Just not quite cold enough to send back as we were going for a flight. Tables for two are not big enough.

Sorry but it's too crowded especially considering everyone has luggage. The tables are on top of each other and if people sat at all the chairs around the small tables you wouldn't be able to get by. The menu looks good but the food was below average for example undercooked and hard tomatoes, soggy bread, tasteless pate. Expected more from... More

Not many places to choose from in terminal 1. Came here. Food not great. Service worse. Had to ask a number of times for different items. A number of things were not on the dishes that had been advertised and when queried we were told they had run out.

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
