Relaxed meal with friends. Shame they have stopped the chicken and prawn salad but we enjoyed the other salads on the menu. We will be back soon

This is the first time that I have visited Giraffe in Bath. The restaurant was of a good size and nicely furnished. The staff were very helpful and friendly, however I did think that the tables were not 2 meters apart. Fellow diners were on the table next to us, more or less at the same sort of distance prior to Covid-19 without any plastic screens or tables facing away from us. Avoid the steak, it was very tuff!

I attended giraffe with knowledge they did a vegan breakfast for myself so we went in when we seen it was quiet to quickly grab something and I honestly was no impressed and sad I went. First of all, the sausage looked mouldy which was a bit off putting but I obviously know vegan food sometimes looks different because it isn’t actually a real sausage but it did taste fine to be fair. And then I started spreading the avocado around to put it on my toast and it was so black and mouldy it was vile. I actually thought it was frozen in the middle for a minute because the texture and colour was so bad. Put me off my whole breakfast please do not serve avocados that aren’t good. Empirically for a vegan breakfast, most people who buy that option probably like/ want the avocado to fill them up etc. Really not happy I payed £9 for one sausage, A handful of mushroom and tomatoes, mouldy avocado and half a plate of tofu that looked like it was slapped together :( disappointed because I’ve visited a giraffe in Newcastle because and the breakfast was served amazing !

The guy who served us that morning tho (didn’t manage to get his name) was really nice and friendly and no way to blame so we couldn’t be bothered to ruin his day With our complains lol

Interesting and eclectic mix of ideas with some healthy options. If you want something a bit different on the high street than this is one of the places to go. Very fast service so we were in and out in around 30 minutes.

Food was vastly overpriced and extremely poor. Had G&Ts, starters and curries, but all were awfully bland, dry and poor quality.

Food was nice but the fact that we had to pay extra for chips was a bit tight. We used the £6.95 meal deal but we ended up paying £8.95 instead just to add chips, how a burger is a meal, I do not know. I also don't like that there is an automatic service charge of 10%; people should be able to choose whether or not to tip, instead of being pressured to.

Our first visit to Giraffe was excellent. Second visit was not as good as the first. Our third visit was not good at all. The food was burnt, tasted the same, and not put together well. Our waitress came across irritable. We only saw our waitress when she took our order, and then again at the end when we had to pay the bill. You could hear she sounded the same when taking the order from the table seated adjacent to ours. It was disappointing as we were looking forward to it. From our 3 visits, food and service was not consistent :-(

The music was enjoyable, however the restaurant itself was rather noisy but I didn’t particularly mind however others might. The food was of a good value and quality, quite small portions though. Very tasty. Service was good, took a while to get drinks at the beginning though. I would go back

Had burger with fries, the burger tasted really good but fries came in a small bowl and frankly you get more at Mc Donald’s, disappointing considering the high price. Get better value going to a pub. Come on guys what’s wrong with a plate of chips, potatoes aren’t expensive are they.

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. The so called head waitress was so arrogant and helpful we ended up walking out.

THEY DONT ANSWER THE PHONE EVER.

Not very clean and they don’t wear masks.

Avoid if at all possible.

Very accommodating.... we were two families visiting together and were able to sit together on tables next to each other.

Food lovely and the service was great.

My only criticism would be the toilets let the venue down. Regular cleaning would be helpful.

We visited giraffe for dinner on Monday night (17/8/2020).

Due to the Covid restrictions the menu was already limited, like most restaurants are. This grew increasingly limited if you had any sort of dietary requirement, such as diary free.

They had no actual vegan/ dairy free dessert, other than mango sorbet on its own which was just scooped into the bowl.

Also, some of the staff weren’t very friendly, slamming the plates down on the table and not actually speaking to us.

I am aware that there are increased restrictions due to the current situation but they were not welcoming for people that had dietary needs.

We won’t be in a rush to come back.

Not following the same coronavirus guidance and other restaurants we visited. No masks, tables not moved to distance customers, very poor quality chicken on the nachos, definitely not worth £10

We visited at lunch for my mother’s birthday and all really enjoyed our food. Excellent vegan choices which are easy to find on the menu and we’re delicious. Despite being very busy on a Saturday our food and drinks were delivered promptly by a very friendly, hard working and efficient waiter upstairs (I didn’t catch his name). We will return!

Very quiet in January, had a table for 5.

We didn’t take dinner there.
We were very poorly attended by the lady who attended us upon entering. SHe told us that we had to hurry because they closed the kitchen very soon. So we left to another restaurant in front the street and we had no problem at all!

Table for 6 was extremely cramped, had to ask for a different table plus correct menus for Christmas meal we had booked.
Then had to remind about the offer and free glass of prosecco as this wasn't offered.
Pudding advertised was white chocolate and passion fruit, I was served salted caramel with popcorn. No explanation as to why.
Tip was added to the bill without us agreeing.

Weren’t given children’s menus, once sat at the table the waiter immediately started serving the table next to us. The next waitress that arrived just stood at the end of the table no hello or politeness. The only time she smiled was when she was telling us half the menu was out of stock! My burger was the same size as the child’s burger?! Overall poor experience. Won’t be going back.
