    The food was yummy, served (very) hot. Portions sufficient, staff nice. A bit on the pricey side, but overall a nice place to go for a meal.

    Food was of a poor enough standard. The barbecued wings were so spicy that we thought they had brought us the spicy wings by mistake, asked the waitress if they had made a mistake but she never returned. The man front of house was very much lacking in a personality, someone should train him on how to treat customers, the Irish waitress also very uninterested in her job. The foreign waiters however were an absolute joy, lovely and friendly. Food was very basic, reminded me of canteen food. Way too much choice also. Lesser choice may result in better quality food. Pity because the restaurant area is actually nice. This staff and the food left it down so badly, was so disappointed that I didn’t even leave a tip, first time ever I didn’t tip in a restaurant. Won’t be returning.

    Food was lovely but I was very disappointed as I’m a very picky eater & picked the wild goose as they had deep fried Brie on the menu when I was booking but no Brie on Sunday 16th Oct 😔 so all I could have was a salad & chips could have had that at home

    Cannot fault The Wild Goose food was lovely but just the portion size is on the large side ! The only negative was the ladies toilets they didn’t smell very pleasant when I was there and the hand dryer wasn’t working .

    My daughter and I went to the wild goose as you have a vegan burger and vegan dessert. We are not vegan but we are both allergic to dairy it was so nice to have a dessert its a pity more restaurants don't do it. Everything was absolutely beautiful.

    They have taking a lot of favourites off the menu. The vegan/vegetarian menu is quite limited. And the price for what you get is a bit steep. We have been eating here for over 8 years btw, yesterday we were quite disappointed. There’s a bit more competition around Mallow now so maybe that’s why?

    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.
