We loved our experience at Wild. The food, service, wine and atmosphere were all outstanding!
I recommend trying things you would not normally order like the steak tartare and the chickpea pancake - just delicious! And the freshly shucked oysters were fabulous.
We will travel to Castlemaine again just to visit Wild again.
This is a delightful gem. The service at Wild was outstanding and the food beautifully prepared and every dish so well thought out. We loved the modern feel inside to compliment the history of the building. One not to be missed.
Excellent and caring service. Had several small plates, the croquettes were excellent.
Great food, service and ambience...highly recommended...
We loved this little restaurant everything was perfect. From the welcoming, friendly staff to the amazingly delicious food. The atmosphere was warm and cosy we did not want to leave. Highly recommend
On a very cold, very quiet night in Castlemaine, Wild was an absolute oasis of great food, wine and knowledgeable friendly service. A terrific find and a jewel of mid-Victorian dining.
The place itself is beautiful, the atmosphere was great but the food was quite average. The chickpea pancake looked like chicken liver pate, really smooth,pale colour and gelatinous. The flavour was nice but not amazing. it would have been much nicer if it was crispy and fried with larger pieces of chickpeas. The beetroot salad was tasty but felt a bit dry, it felt like I was eating every ingredient separately and barely any dressing.
The only dish that was great was the seafood dish. lots of flavour.
I was very excited to eat there after having read the reviews but unfortunately the food didnt live it up to my expectations. I do think it's a fantastic venue and staff were great and hopefully they can improve the food a bit :-)
Thank you for a wonderful night! The food is amazing and staff are fantastic!
Such a lovely place to dine - great service, delicious food and a beautiful space. It’s a Castlemaine gem!
Wonderful food and excellent service. Staff very friendly and helpful. A most enjoyable evening.
We were delighted to discover this place. We chose rather than having a large meal each to pick many of the smaller dishes to ensure we had a taste of many more creations. We were not disappointed. The menu is interesting and different from other restaurants in the town. The staff were friendly and attentive. The wine list was a mixture of local and international, with a bias to French. Castlemaine has needed such a restaurant for some time. We will return for sure.
A beautiful selection of courses served by very friendly and helpful staff. Wild has a relaxed vibe to go with their beautifully presented food.
Personal and friendly service, calm/quiet atmosphere however not where you're too intimidated to speak or laugh, beautiful quality, constructed and sized dishes to share. Fantastic wine/drinks selection and knowledgeable staff.
A lovely experience in terms of food service and ambiance…. Our new ‘go-to’ restaurant
We had a fabulous night at Wild. We found the food different and delicious. Toby recommended some great wine and the service was excellent.
Due to the circumstances , going out for dinner has been extremely difficult. What utter pleasure to have such an establishment in CASTLEMAINE. Fine dining has arrived . The service impeccable, casual but organized. The varied cuisine impressed and satisfying, flavors delicious and great combinations. Left satisfied and will return again & again . Wishing Toby and attentive staff a long future .
Do yourself a favor and go to indulge an epicurean experience. Looking forward to our next lunch or dinner .
Lovely ambience, friendly staff, beautiful food in a relaxed environment.
This was the 2nd time at this restaurant and once again it was fantastic. Clearly the best restaurant in Castlemaine. Love it!

As always it was an absolute joy to dine at Wild. Delicious food, excellent wines. Great service. Thank you!
Really good quality food & a nice ambience. Great service with fantastic drink options .
Would suggest more vegetarian mains but other than that
Delicious food in a pleasant venue. Staff were friendly and unobtrusive.
Menu could have been bigger, but we understand with covid restrictions why.
It was a very nice meal
Great food, wine and service. Great wine list. Thanks
Lovely place, delicious food. Hi eat here everyone!
Such a pleasure to be back at Wild and to see familiar Wild faces again! The food was superb.
A gorgeous restaurant in terms of style and ambience, housed in a former fire station. The service was fantastic; friendly and efficient which is sometimes hard to find. Food was excellent in both taste and presentation. A teeny bit too dark even though I like soft lighting, maybe candles might aid in menu reading for older folk?! However we both thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
Always have a great experience here. Everything is on point, fresh well executed food, attentive service and a cosy atmosphere.
Wonderful! Food delicious. Relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff.
Reasonable prices too.
Definitely worth a visit!
Wild is a great place for a special night out. Meals, drinks, service and atmosphere are all fantastic. Can't wait to return!
Always a lovely time at this restaurant. Excellent food, super wine list, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Local produce and wine a big feature; inventive, thoughtful and very welcoming. Beautiful interior design too.
Fantastic service, beautiful meal, well priced, lovely atmosphere. We will be back. So good thankyou Xxxxx
In a word - wonderful. The food is excellent, with a great selection for vegetarians, and the staff are both helpful and wise about what will work for you. We were a group of eight and they were attentive and generous and the food ... we were thrilled! Beautiful, spacious and light restaurant. Highly - HIGHLY - recommended.
Excellent service, very good food and substantial regional Victorian wine list. We thoroughly enjoyed the shared plates. Great restaurant
Great food. Interesting choices and drinks menu. Staff were great. Definitely deserves time to allow yourself to enjoy a few tasting plates, main and desert.
The service and the food were great. The fish unfortunately was a little bit dry but okay. The beef cheek was brilliant, as were the wines and small plates to share. Great venue.
We have been to 'Wild' 3 times in as many weeks and love the ambience, service and food. Both Roland and Toby have been so welcoming. The food really is so good.
Thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you are in Castlemaine. Needless to say we will be back.
Unfortunately our experience was not what has been advertised as a 4.9/5 restaurant.
The timelines of the food & service was very off and did not seem to match the amount of dishes we ordered.
The staff were lovely and kind , do not want to disregard that in any way.
But we were seated for 20 mins until water was offered & almost one hour until an entree dish of cold meats and pear arrived.
This unfortunately continued throughout our sitting and unfortunately not satisfied with our experience.
If there was to be a hold up in the kitchen , customers do appreciate being communicated to but at the time, it did not seem too busy or out of hand.
