    I dined at The Wild Goose with my family. This was the first time we visited the restaurant after hearing numerous recommendations. There was plenty of car parking space on the Saturday evening of our meal. We reserved a table and this was ready for us on arrival. The interior looks modern and I reckon was renovated recently. Toilets are clean but small. Service was very quick, the next meal was ready minutes after we finished the previous course. The food itself was very good, and my family also agreed. Salad was fresh and meal sizes were generous. I am not a vegan but chose the vegan burger for mains and was very impressed at the quality. The price was a little on the high side, see the menu for the exact figures. I think given the level of inflation at the moment (2022) then this is acceptable. I would highly recommend The Wild Goose to anyone looking to dine out on the Mallow side of Cork.

    Food was absolutely gorgeous !!!! Love the Goujons - the only BUT I have is the coleslaw. Looked awful on presentation, would have loved homemade coleslaw. Looked as if it was scooped out of a plastic carton. Would either suggest freshly made coleslaw or a little salad on the side instead. Other than that the food was superb.

    It was fathers day, so very busy and louder than I'd like. They seemed to loose our order in the chaos so we had to wait a long time. When the food did arrive it was delicious. They didn't charge us for our starter due to the long wait.

    Went here for a family meal and to celebrate 2 birthdays! The staff of the restaurant went over and above for us! One waiter in particular was absolutely brilliant with our 10 yr old daughter he told us she needs to stand up comedy when she is older as she is a very funny child.. 😂 we will definitely be coming again and would highly recommend my friends to eat at the wild goose thank you so much

    We had a reasonable dinner. The food was nice but fairly expensive...it was ready very quickly and was served very hot which was great. Nice menu and choices for the kids...prices for those we felt were okay and pretty standard. Service was just average, maybe even below average. It would have been really nice if they had just acknowledged the special occasion that we were there to celebrate even on arrival, but we kind of got rushed in and put down in a corner and then forgotten...had to ask for someone to get us drinks / to find our waitress to get the bill / etc. It actually felt like we had inconvenienced them by choosing to eat there. It didn’t look like the staff were very happy to be working there. We enjoyed the food, but it was meant to be a real treat meal out to celebrate our anniversary and the service wasn’t great for the prices you pay, so we definitely wouldn’t rush back there. It’s a shame as it’s a lovely restaurant and we have had lots of lovely meals there in the past. Maybe we just ate there on an ‘off day’ but there are so many other places to try / choose now that we won’t be in a rush to go back.

    Average experience. My husband enjoyed his meal (soup, ceasar salad, brownie), found them very tasty. But I didn't enjoy mine. My starter (brie) was very small, my main (vegan burger) tasted rubbery, my desert was terrible. I ordered strawberry pavlova roulade but I got a square of soft pavlova with 2 grapes, 3 blueberries and half a strawberry on top, no cream or crisp, it wasn't a roulade at all. I expected strawberries going through a roulade. I expected better quality food for the price. Not great vegetarian options. The service is very fast and the host and cashier were very nice but the waiting staff were very impersonal/not very friendly, barely spoke to us. Overall, based on my experience I would not recommend.
