Having previously been very disappointed I am more than happy to give the highest possible recommendation to Richys. Since the problems - (all staff and service issues - never food) were rectified this restaurant is an absolute gem and accordingly is deservedly the busiest restaurant in Clonakilty. Over the past months we have enjoyed wonderful food and excellent service.

Our stay in Clonakilty was made even better by discovering Richey's. We ate several meals there (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and hugely enjoyed each time. Management and staff were so friendly and helpful. Try the Gold Croc-Monsieur sandwich!

Three of us visited and had a main course each, a bottle of wine and two desserts, and a glass of port. The hake was very nice, the sauce that was with it was a little sprinkling on the plate, I ordered the cheese for dessert, it was meant to be cheeses with grapes and port, there were no grapes...

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the food with us. Our Mileens Three ways alternative cheese board is a little different offering the award winning Mileens cheese au natural, as a fondue and deep fried- I am sorry if we negleted to put grapes on the dish .

Visited Richies two days ago at lunch time with two children and a baby. The cafe side appeared quiet, the menu looked inviting. Imagine our surprise when twenty minutes later there was still no food in evidence despite a fairly simple order of two sandwiches, one burgur and two pasta dishes. The waitress apolgised for the delay laying the blame... More

Excellent food especially the fresh scallops recommended to us by a friendly waitress. Cosy atmosphere in an ideal location. Presentation of food was impressive with prompt service. We had ample time to relax and enjoy our wine after our meal. Would definitely return, thanks very much.

Myself and my husband had a lovely meal here and the staff were and service were very good. As a coeliac options can be limited but they were happy to adapt or change anything within reason of course and I opted for a scallop starter and beef curry main, both very tasty.

We are regular visitors to this restaurant and for the first time we were very disappointed. The service was appalling with very long waits between courses. They were extremely busy and obviously had overbooked the place (with both sides open) or had too few staff on duty. There was no front of house presence with people waiting by the door... More

A wonderful meal with great service. I recently had a fantastic meal here with my boyfriend. Starters were large portions and very tasty. The most memorable was the hake from the specials board- we have spoken about it many times since. Beautiful presentation, full of flavours and the most enjoyable fish dish to date!! The only problem was that I... More
