We visited at 3pm. The restaurant part wasn't really open until 5 so we sat in the cafe half. The waitress said that the same menu was available. Instead we ordered from the cafe menu as I liked the sound of the curry kebab and it was great. My wife's meal was perfectly cooked also. The wine was lovely. Overall... More

Just back from a family gingerbread house building session, expertly guided by Richy and Johanna. After a quick bite it was straight into the action and soon fabulous miniature houses with lots of icing decorations began to spring up, Great fun and excitement for young and not so young, and happy gingerbread families all round. Great evening, great team.

Cracking restaurant; buzzing when we were there. Great selection on the menu and fairly priced for the quality and area. There were 1 or 2 parties on the night and the atmosphere was great. Service was ok but to be fair the place was really busy. Food quality was first class! Will be back and look forward to a more... More

My wife got me a cookery lesson gift cert. for Richys last Christmas. I finally redeemed it last October and had a great lunchtime afternoon working along Richy himself as part of the kitchen team, whilst prepping and learning a starter, main and dessert. It is a fine kitchen with a great team, proper food prepared with flair and imagination.... More

We stopped in Richy's passing through back in October having read the reviews on tripadvisor and the reviews just don't do this place enough justice, it is absolutely amazing! The staff were so friendly. As for the food - wow. I found it hard to choose as so much sounded like it was to die for - the pork belly... More

This is a gem of a restaurant in Clonakilty. The staff were kind enough to make room for three of us although they were very busy that night. We really enjoyed the evening. The hake was just fab. Would really recommend it.

We ate at Richy's back in July and would definitely go back. The food was very good - there was a good range to choose from, something for all the members of the family including our 3-year old. The waitress was friendly and helpful, and we had a chat with Richy too. It was good value for money too.
