Knew this place has been closed for a few months now but really missed it yesterday as it would be been the guaranteed place we'd have ate and drink before Buy Art Fair and for the first time ever we had to think of somewhere else child-friendly to eat at in Spinningfields (GBK won that prize). Giraffe was unique in... More

Great customer service from the very chatty and friendly waitresses, a nice restaurant with a good ambience. Food was good and hearty, if a little pricey.

Eventually found an empty table only for a member of staff to come over and say our daughter couldn't sit in the booth and anyway... More

Both waitresses were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us, both cocktails we ordered (bramble garden and mango mule) were some of the freshest I've ever tasted, couldn't fault the food well done!!

I noticed that Giraffe had added a few interesting dishes to their brunch menu recently so decided to try them out. My wife and I decided to share 2 dishes and opted for the smashed avo with chilli on toast, with an added poached egg, and the Surfs Up sandwich, with added potato wedges. Visually, the avo on toast was... More

I am unsure about the rest of their menu but those dishes were amazing. The only down side is the waitress who rushed to take our orders , we were not... More

First time for me at Giraffe and it strikes me as pretty middle ground in its offering. The menu is eclectic bordering on a bit random. There are lots of good options but it's hard to understand where they position themselves and specialise. There are some nice juices (lemonade and mint is a winner) which are also worth a run....
