My Partner and I often eat out in Malahide and with several excellent restaurants to choose from we normally always end up in the Greedy Goose! The service is super friendly, the food is delicious and always quick to arrive at the table, and due to the nature of the menu (which is a taster menu where you choose dishes from a list of options) there is something for everyone. If you're anything like us and can't quite decide what you fancy the Greedy Goose is most definitely for you as you can have your pick! My only advice would be not to have eyes bigger than your belly, the portions may not look so large when they come one at a time but you soon fill up!

Been to the greedy goose a couple of times and had previously enjoyed the ambiance and food offering. However the last two times were completely destroyed by the noise levels in the restaurant which seemed to escalate with the second round of sittings. Yes I know this is an odd complaint but when you find yourself having to shout to be heard by your fellow diner it tends to make the experience unpleasant. I don't know what way the acoustics work in the room or whether there are simply too many people in a confined space but it was so loud we just ended up not trying to talk and hurried through our meals. Won't be back for an evening meal, might try the early bird as the atmosphere seemed much less manic., don't know how the staff don't need ear protection. We left happy with the food but with splitting headaches and looking longingly at the more tranquil restaurant offerings nearby.

Our large group of 4 families and children decided to finish off our great break in Ireland with a relaxed meal before heading back to Dublin airport for our return flight home.
We only realised earlier in the day that it was in fact a Bank Holiday and thought we would struggle to get anywhere for such a large group at such short notice, and whilst travelling into Dublin came across The Greedy Goose from an internet search.
"A table for 16 please" - no problem as long as it was early evening booking.
We knew we had made a great decision as soon as we entered the upstairs restaurant, where we were immediately greeted and made extremely welcome.
The service was both attentive and informal, the tasting menu extremely varied, and the food was not only extremely well presented but totally delicious. Our complements go the the kitchen staff and Chef who work wonders.
The younger members of our party were treated to their own menu that far exceeded the usual 'Kids choices' and all came away happy.
The large dining room has wonderful views of the beaches and marina, with a bistro décor and relaxed atmosphere.
This is an absolute MUST for anyone, local or visitor to the Malahide area, you will not be disappointed.

arrived 9:00 pm on a dismal Saturday evening and delighted to get a table because on a no show.. Beautiful restaurant if just a tad cramped. They serve a taster menu and you can select any 3 options of 3 different priced menus. Portions are taster sized but adequate and beautifully presented. Flavoursome, my partner thought the Thai fishcakes a little bland and the salmon was too heavy on the wasabi. Everything else though very good. Meal for two with 1 pudding, 2 liqueurs and a bottle of wine and tip came to €100...Very reasonable and would recommend...
