Had a meal at Giffords on recommendation from our hosts. The restaurant is comfortable and the staff friendly and efficient. The food was well cooked and flavoursome. Certainly worth a visit if in the area.

I was really happy with my outing. Big portions of quality food. My apps came out quick and my fish was cooked just right. Service was attentive. Very clean chic place. Will return again for sure.
