Giraffe - ExeterGiraffe - Exeter
48 reviews
Fusion / Eclectic | Exeter, Exeter

this restaurant was recommended to me a few weeks ago . I visited it with my daughter and son in law. We were so impressed with the overall service and the food was great, so many different flavours that blended together . We really enjoyed it. A friend came to stay for a few days last week so I booked for the two of us, like me she really enjoyed the food , it was delicious . We also had the Churros for desert , I wil definitely make it a regular haunt when family and friends visit and I shall dine there on my own as the staff are so friendly and helpful.. I would not hesitate to reccomend Giraffe to all my friends and family as you can be sure of a fab meal and great service. More

Another fabulous souffle to start followed by melt in the mouth brisket with a gravy to die for. Always an enjoyable experience and one I'd repeat more often if we lived a little closer. More
