Very Good, but was expecting much better

Richy's was very good, but I did expect it to be at a much higher level. My beef was over cooked when I asked for rare, but it was very good just the same. I do expect meat to be cooked perfectly at a restaurant like this. All the meals were very good but not exceptional. Wait staff was... read more

We had a wonderful meal last night. Great food and great service. The beef carpaccio starter was lovely, fresh flavors and the beef curry my husband had was incredible. Can't wait to go back next time we're in Clonakilty!

Richy is an inspired chef conjuring up superb dishes using the best of Irish produce. The attention to detail and presentation is superb. We visited three times in a week! Favourite dish was the Loch Hyne scallops with the sirloin a close second!

We went to Richy's on our last night in Clonakilty. We found the menu to be quite expensive, we had a beef curry which was only ok though there was plenty of it. My daughter had a chicken dish (forgot name of it)which looked small on her plate but it was tasty enough. Lots of photographs on the wall by... More

All food was very basic (looked very good on the plate but was tasteless).. The wine was very good but was away over priced (we... More

Loved Richies, quirky and bustling... super friendly staff, loved having my dog with us in the ample seating area outdoors and the staff immediately offered a water bowl for her before taking our order.My cappucino and scone were delicious. There was even a birthday candle to put in brothers birthday cupcake! Passed by the place so many times and my... More

Good food, good variety. Family went for lunch. Something for everyone. From coffee and cake to a full meal. Very busy but staff were very good, nothing to much to ask for, friendly very relaxed. Definitely recommend.

Very average and expensive. €19 for scrambled eggs and coffee for two for breakfast. Much better value in other restaurants and coffee shops in the town.

My wife and I are here for her birthday recently. The setting was lovely, the service was very friendly and attentive, and the food was very good indeed. We liked the twists on different dishes, such as black pudding samosas and the Mauritian beef curry. Whilst very tasty the odd thing could have been slightly improved on, such as the... More

Very disappointed. Food was good in general but poor service. Bread was offered before dinner but only enough for 2 people and we were 2 adults and 4 hungry children. The butter was quantity you get in a little gold packet. We had to ask for more. My wife's wine was not brought to table with other drinks and she... More
