    Very good food, awesome service. One of the nicest places to spend time on Heathrow

    One of the better places to eat. The staff was friendly and the menu was diverse. The falafel "burger" was delicious! I see why folks complained about the wait. For layovers, not a quick bite.

    When in LHR terminal 1 "Giraffe" is best place to eat - imo :-)

    Sweet potato fries and steak. A challenge with a plastic picnic knife but tasty

    Food was just okay. They should offer some smaller portions for people on the go.

    No small plates on fish and chips; unattentive waiter focused on upselling, lemonade tastes like powder, not fresh.

    Nice place to wait for your plane but here it stops.

    Terminal 1 doesn't have a huge amount to offer, Giraffe is an ok place if you want a decent beer and a belly full of food

    Groovy Muesli is breakfast in a cup - healthy, and handy if you're in a rush. Good coffee too.

    Worst service ever. It's like they're all in a coma and haven't seen daylight for years. Don't seem to be able to notice other human beings. Not ideal when you're usually in a rush at the airport!

    Porridge on regular milk with strawberries and banana was very good. They add some honey on top. Really tasty. Cappuccino was fantastic and mocha with crunchy biscuit on top was fine too. Worth a try!

    Tell them you want to order immediately when seated and then keep them waiting.... The other way round is worse than checking the relative humidity and moisture content of coloured emulsion on a wall!

    Great service but seriously the food is shit and tastes nothing like authentic Mexican food.(See unripe avocado) Eat only if at the point of starvation. You have been warned!

    Stopped for a cup of tea - our waitress had a bit of an attitude. Maybe she is on commission and was annoyed we didn't buy more...
  • Louise A.

    Thoroughly unimpressed. Slow service (but smiley waiter), the thinnest watery muesli smoothie ever and not enough yogurt with the muesli breakfast. Would not recommend!

    We actually leave earlier to the airport just so we have time to eat here! Beats plane food (but then what doesn't). Love their smoothies.

    Avoid buying a soft drink. They have those really annoying straws that are too light and float up and fall out of your drink.

    Don't have the breakfast plate. It's 2 fatty boiled bits of bacon with 2 boiled sausages a mass of brand and scrambled eggs to fill the plate. Very low quality and thoroughly unappetizing.
