    We visited the Greedy Goose for our wedding anniversary. It was quiet being midweek, but it was still a cosy atmosphere . Food was excellent, with a range of dishes. Wine list was varied and extensive. Service was also excellent. Definitely one for special occasions, but well worth it

    Myself and partner frequented this restaurant regularly, & it was our favourite restaurants in the area. On this visit however the menu has changed (I know this is normal for restaurant, but there is a taste change in the quality of the food) or the chef has changed as there is a noticeable difference in the quality and taste the food... Don’t get me wrong, it was nice, but not the normal high standards & great taste we have come to expect at the greedy goose.

    Delicious food in a beautiful courtyard setting. Good value for money for early bird dining. Tempting cocktails and plenty of choice of wine. The waiting staff were a bit rushed at times but they were as attentive as they could be. We will certainly go again to round off a day out in Plymouth.

    What a lovely building with the most attentive of staff and gorgeous food. We both had the Crispy Duck Egg starter with hollandaise and asparagus, pea and broad beans with just a hint of mint....absolutely delicious. My husband had the steak and I had the Lamb Cannon, both meats cooked to perfection, meltingly tender and served with perfectly cooked veggies. A wonderful bottle of multipulciano...greedy goose choc mousse and a cheeseboard completed the experience....thank you Greedy Goose we will return.

    We opted for the 11 course tasting menu for the first time with the Greedy Goose. The service was very slow on this evening and the restaurant was not packed. The temperature of some of the dishes were not what was expected and for the cost of £240 for two, I didn't feel I got the experience that my money had paid for.

    A real gem of a find, cannot fault it. Exquisite cuisine. Portions just right i think, not slabs of food but satisfying and well presented. Unfortunately, we had ordered dessert but it did take a while in coming, so we had to cancel it as we had to be at the theatre for a performance. Shame. In busier periods, you may have to wait longer as the food is individually prepared and much more thought goes into it; so factor that in if your time is limited or simply book 30 mins earlier. Overall, highly rated and a wonderful, historical setting. Spoil yourself....

    Our first visit but as it was our 25th wedding anniversary we wanted to go somewhere special. We out al fresco in the stunning courtyard. The food was on another level, THE best we have ever eaten. Service was excellent but not to full on, nice relaxed atmosphere & the drink selection is amazing! They also made us a happy anniversary plate & gave us a card which was a really nice touch. Not to pricey, what you would expect to pay for food/service of a VERY high standard. We will go back!

    It was my third visit to the Greedy Goose but this time we were saying farewell to a special friend who was returning back to Africa. The service was excellent as always and the food was delicious. They tend to change their menu every now and then so there's always something exciting on offer.

    We had a lovely dinner on our return from honeymoon. The early evening dinner deal was creative and tasty, not too large but didn't leave you wanting more, just what we were after. But I think the best experience must be from the tasting menu which is what we are keen to return to do.

    We were given a voucher to eat at the Greedy Goose for Christmas and went in June! Absolutely fantastic. It was a lovely warm evening and there was a BBQ being cooked in the open courtyard with live music which was wonderful. Had a delicious glass of wine there before going into the main restaurant for a really delicious meal. Had a wonderful evening. Have recommended it already and the people have already booked a BBQ on Saturday night. Brilliant.

    Having lots of food intolerance the Greedy Goose offered several delicious dishes for me. Every single part of the 3 course meal was outstanding The waitress informed me of the choices as soon as I had arrived which allowed me to feel comfortable and valued plus it put me at ease. I wasn't disappointed and had a wonderful evening in the courtyard with superb entertainment. I will definitely come back.

    We visited for our anniversary and it was such a delight. The staff had created such a lovely atmosphere and had even written as a card to acknowledge our anniversary which was a lovely addition. We went early evening to make use of the 5-10-5 menu. The food was lovely and the staff even offered us fresh bread and butter to start along with a goats cheese appetiser. The mains were also delicious which we accompanied by prosecco.
