Stopped here over the Easter break, and the Mauritian Curry sounded very interesting. However, it was very disappointing, not to my liking, never had a mauritian dish before, my partners meal was fine and the service was attentive.

We called in for lunch and its a lovely bistro very enticing. Everything was presented well but wasn't really anything exceptional - and because of that it wasn't great value. I'd add that my daughter's fish and chips was really a large batter slab containing a small piece of fish - dissapointing.

Delicious food from starters to dessert and a wonderful selection on the Menu. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for suggesting the Stuffed Olive in Bantry, another place I'd highly recommend.

While staying overnight in the area, I heard from a friend that Richy's did a great take out pizza. They weren't wrong! I'm not normally a fan of pizza but I ordered the Clonakilty black pudding and Gubbeen bacon topped one. It was gorgeous. Cooked to perfection and topped with kale. I had intended to take it back to where... More
