Giraffe offers a colourful and vibrant atmosphere with a menu to suit any taste.

The Venue
Giraffe is located in the middle of the new shopping centre Cabot Circus on the upper floor. As it is located in the shopping centre it is a great place for lunch and with the cinema there too it is perfect to combine dinner and a movie. Although the centre is undercover it is light and airy and some tables are located outside the restaurant.

The People
This has a lively, bright and vibrant atmosphere and certainly at lunchtime is always busy. Clientele in the day time are often shoppers of a range of ages but in the evenings you can expect to see families and groups of friends.

Staff are efficient and friendly. The decor is very bright with almost luminous colours and there is a very contemporary feel in Giraffe.

The Food
A breakfast menu is available until noon with a range of healthy and more traditional options prices for this are between £3.95 and £7.25. Brunch is then served until 4pm from £5.95 to £7.25. Dishes include the veggie brunch plate for £6.95 or stacked banana and blueberry pancakes for £5.95.

The whole menu is scattered with healthy choices throughout but they are by no means a health food restaurant and it caters to a range of tastes so everyone is sure to find something to enjoy. There's hot Thai duck stir-fry for £8.95, a grilled chicken, spiced prawn and mango salad for £9.95

Starters are between £2.25 and £6.95 and some are suitable to mix and match to make a main meal. Main courses are between £6.95 and £14.95 and there are an unusual range of salads which are worth trying.

Meal deals and a kids menu are also available. The desserts fit in with the rest of the menu with fruit salads alongside banana waffle split and are priced between £3.95 and £5.50.

The Drink
The drinks menu is as varied as the food menu. The healthy options include a range of smoothies at £3.45 and herbal teas at £1.75. Cocktails are served from £5 and some non alcoholic cocktails are included in the menu and 50 per cent off cocktails is offered between 5pm and 7pm Monday to Thursday.

The beer menu includes exotic favourites like Corona and Cusquena and are priced around £3.10 to £3.50, although you can get a Red Stripe for £1.55 from Monday to Thursday between 5pm and 7pm.

The wine list is descriptive to give diners an idea of what to expect like Happy, Easy, Global and Russell’s Favourite wine. Glasses are priced from £2.65 and bottles from £13.25 and you can get any of the wines by the glass, except their sparkling wine.

The Last Word
This restaurant is a bit different and definitely worth a try particularly if you are with a party who all have different ideas about their food and drink.
