Nice to have gluten free choices

Have visited Richy's a few times over the years when visiting Clonakility. As a coeliac it is always nice to have choices on a menu and not have to explain it. The food is always enjoyable. Most recent visit was with my two young children. The service was relatively quick and kids menu was good.

Booked and ate here 2 nights running as we were in the area for a wedding. Trip Advisor influenced decision. On 1st night server was excellent (thanks Cormac) and food good though not exceptional. When we asked, it was revealed that the chef was in Dublin recording for TV. Be that as it may, we returned the following night as... More

we ate in the bistro side, the food was good. While the service was quick, we had to remind them about needing water and the order was missing a few items when arrived, but nothing major.

Spent the weekend in Clonakility & this restaurant was our only bad experience. Everything was going okay until one of us asked for more tea!!! Waitress snapped the empty pot off the table & grunted something. Everything on the menu is seriously overpriced, 8.95 for a mini breakfast!!! There is a extra charge for everything e.g cream on a scone... More

Thank you for your review.Sorry to hear that you were not impressed by our menu or prices. Unfortunately in this instance, we do have to honor all bookings over any walk in table and so had to advise you that this was the case prior to you being seated. If we had a booking for you timing would not have... More

I had the chicken avocado salad. It was healthy and delicious. Everyone in my group loved their meal. The deserts are to die for!

We have been going to Richy's in Clonakilty on and off over the last 10 years. For the last couple of years we have enjoyed weekend breakfast with our young family at Richy's and it has been about 2.5 years since we had have had an evening meal there. I do remember the evening menu being quite pricey back then... More

We loved being able to return to visit Richys on a couple of occasions during our return visit to Clonakilty. Coffee and cakes were excellent and service was warm and friendly and prompt despite there being a large group of us gathered. Every bit as good as we remembered from our visit in June 2014. We will return :-)

Some really different pizzas. Never tried them anywhere before. But a really beautiful small joint in the heart of the city.
