    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.

    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
