Every time I come here I am impressed with the food This time I got a starter with a poached egg, avocado and sourdough bread. This was AMAZING! The poached eggs was cooked to perfection - to the point I was going to order a second! The avocado was nice and fresh and the bread really thick and springy -... More

It's my birthday so we was looking for some lunch out. We wanted to try something new but after a long search we couldn't find anything. Then we stood out side this lovely restaurant and a young gent came out to greet us and tempt us to come inside. He was a great and friendly sales man so we agreed... More

Popped in here last week while on a shopping trip to Cabot Circus. We opted for the lunch time specials which were very reasonably priced at less than £7 Our waitress was friendly and very attentive throughout our meal and the quality of the food served was first rate. I would definitely recommend visitors to Bristol coming to this restaurant.... More

Took my 1 adult and two teens for Saturday evening meal. Good food with decent selection of styles and attentive service. Wasn't very busy for Saturday evening which should have rung alarm bells but food was 7/10 generally. Downsides - small portions of chips, £3.50 for 5 onion rings - come on!, and the general size of the portions was... More

This was our first visit to a Giraffe, and we arrived with 3 hungry kids. We all easily found something we liked on the menu, and explained to our server we would like to order straight away as we were hungry. Although the servers seemed to be slightly under-staffed, they were cheerful and efficient throughout, ensuring our food came very... More

First visit but would definitely go back. Lots of variety in the menu - something for everyone. Staff were very attentive but not pushy - got it just right and were very cheerful and helpful. Food was excellent. We didn`t try the cocktails this time but the fresh lemon juice with mint was really refreshing. Looking forward to going back!!

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.
