Giraffe is a popular casual dining chain known for bringing global classics to the masses in a family-friendly and lively atmosphere.

The South Bank branch is the largest Giraffe in London and with its great riverside views, spacious terrace and super location right on the Queen's Walk it's a popular one too. Rest assured though the queue goes down quickly. The menu is extensive and varied ensuring there's a dish to suit every taste, from duck stir fry to proper fish and chips.

With the many family attractions of the Southbank Centre just upstairs and big sights like the Aquarium and London Eye a short walk away, Giraffe is always popular with families. Open from 9am, there's a dedicated kids' breakfast and a lunch/dinner menu featuring no-fuss classics like fish fingers and sausage and beans.
