We visited this restaurant the first time and have to say it was just okay. Definitely not great. Menu was quite ambitious. We tried two different appetizers, two entrees and one dessert. Lack of flavouring and originality. The filet mignon was cooked well but had very little seasoning. Wine list was uninteresting and the markup was immense. Atmosphere was pleasant... More

We were served a flute of sparkling wine upon our arrival. This 4 course dinner had 3-4 choices per course. The first course was a crimini mushroom & brandy soup. For the following courses we chose the grilled prawns on organic greens with asparagus, artichokes, green beans & egg with Provence herb Dijon vinaigrette; grilled filet mignon with onion compote,...

Good food prepared and presented very well with good service and a decent wine list. All at decent prices in a charming and unpretentious space

So many touristy places on Marine Drive that you have to know where to go to eat well. We checked reviews and thought that Giraffe was for the three of us for this brunch with a 2 year old also. First thing to mention was our waiter, Andrew, so pleasant with so much empathy and on top of that, so... More

When 4 women who all live in different cities and have been friends for 50 years get together, chances are they are going to be so busy talking they barely notice the food. That was pretty much the case with our group, despite the fact that we are all pretty interested in food. Nevertheless, we all enjoyed our meals. Everything... More

The food was delicious and portion good. The mushroom soup of the day was a cream based one but worth blowing your diet for it. The Thai prawns were big, succulent and tasty.

Great ambience, service and last but not least, the food was terrific. Husband had the Grilled Bavette Steak and I had the Smoked Chicken-Chorizo Linguine. They were both very, very good. We shared the Blackberry-Apple pie. So good, wished I had my own! Coffee was also very good. We are glad we chose this restaurant to celebrate or anniversary.

This restaurant is great for families and couples. We have had some great date nights here and an equally nice time as a family. The menu is not extensive but there is something for everyone and the specials that rotate are excellent. The terrace is intimate and garden like, offering privacy from the strip but still open enough to enjoy... More

The mushroom vegetarian meal is a must try. I still have dreams about the delicate flavours that come together. The owner is often working and you can see his passion through all the details in your meal. The homemade bread is definitely a bonus- it's a shame you cannot buy some from home. We sat on the patio overlooking the... More

Hadn't been to Giraffe for at least 3 years as last time we were there we were really disappointed. They have a new woman chef since last time we were there. Tried last night with my wife as it was a nice night and their outside patio with heaters is tough to beat. Rita was our server. very attentive. my... More
