We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, despite there being many empty tables. There was a big delay in our order being taken and when we did eventually receive our food, most of it was lukewarm, told the waitress and her response was that she would tell the chef! The side dish we ordered came after everything else was finished. The floor was filthy from a previous customers spill, which no-one cleared up. Service was weak, we had to put coats on and scrape the floor with chairs to finally get the attention of the staff to pay the bill and leave. We have been before, and it was a much better experience, but it still doesn't represent a pleasant, value for money experience. Getting a plastic giraffe with your kids drink doesn't compensate I'm afraid.

Nothing really spectacular about it, but quite OK. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food was quite tasty.

We turned up on a busy Saturday lunchtime, we were welcomely greeted and told a table would be ready in five to ten minutes (which it was!!). We were given a menu while waiting to whet our appetite. We ordered drinks and a meal, was given our drinks and the meal wasn't long. The meal was great, but what got our attention was the politeness and right level of service of all the staff, a refreshing change. Even when I couldn't find the loo upstairs. Well done giraffe Cambridge, we will be back. 5 star!!!

Honestly could not wish for better on a Saturday night! A clearly busy staff force still made me and my life partner feel like the centre of attention. My waiter, a slightly bearded chap, was attentive and delightful. The food was out to me in a respectable time and was very enjoyable. Overall I had a good experience here and would definitely go again!

For a work night out we thought we would try this restaurant as the menu was quirky and looked good value.

The highlight was the cocktails but the food was awful. The chicken was overcooked and the chips and potato wedges were oily and over fried.

We ordered wine but the waiter had lost the corkscrew so they offered a higher prices wine which wouldn't have been a first choice and was warm.

For a Friday night the place was deserted and we now know why.

Shame as could be so much better.
