Inspired by Nature, Consumed by Flavour

We’ve made some changes

Why has our menu changed you ask? We loved what we did when we were fine dine but sadly our bank balance didn’t. We had to change to survive within the industry. We wanted to create a new menu that was slightly more affordable and less of an occasional treat and more of a regular one.

The Wild & Native Story

Jodie & Fergal first met in 2009 and started searching for a property for Fergal to take on himself. We then chose a property in Rosslare Strand for the whole family (2.3 children) to get to grips with. Wild & Native Restaurant was first established in March 2016.

Chef Fergal Dempsey first trained in The Great Southern Hotel in Rosslare, County Wexford. A the young age of 19 he took a head chef position at The Tara Hotel in Amsterdam.
