Unusual menu, excellent food, small upstairs restaurant with a good view

We came here for lunch and had a very pleasant experience. The menu is unusual, as it consists of a host of dishes, which you order in the order you wish them to appear. So far so good, but each dish is rather small, hence you would order three or so "main courses", similar to a Spanish tapas. This... read more

The food is always amazing. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The tables are a bit close together but it makes the place really buzzy! Always first choice when in Malahide.

Small restaurant with small tables. No big problem but staff should remove used drink glasses when moving on to wine. In all staff was a little slow that evening. Food was ok but average.

The view, decor and service was only outdone by the food. Brilliant restaurant. The wine list was also very good, and surprisingly inexpensive. Go to this place - you will not be disappointed. Jenny our server was very prompt, friendly and professional.

I have been to The Greddy Goose several times and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I had booked a table for 2 last Friday evening (27/03/2015 - 6.30pm) and had tried several times before arriving to call to change the booking. The phone rang out each time. So when I arrived I asked if it was possible to get a... More

The food was great and presented in a wonderful way that made the experience worth the visit. Like many reviewers, it takes a bit to understand the menu concept, but the wait staff did a great job explaining. Well worth a visit.

This is my second time in this restaurant, the first time (6months ago) was ok, this time was a total disaster. We went to the Greedy Goose this Saturday for lunch time at 4 adults. The place was freezing cold, the temperature was so low that all customers kept wearing their jackets. I had to ask twice for the heating... More

I had received a recommendation from a friend for The Greedy Goose, but this restaurant is definitely not for me. The tables are too close together (so close that you’re worried about knocking over other diner’s drinks when you get up to exit or go to the bathroom), and I don’t like the format of small dishes which aren’t really...

We'd read on Trip Advisor that the food was great. It was! We took a few seconds to get used to the concept of a tasting menu. They recommend 3 or 4 dishes. However, having now experienced it, we think it's great! They have some set menus that range from €21 to €29 per person, from where you can choose... More
