I ate far too much last night but I just couldn’t resist the fabulous array of dishes at the 14th anniversary of Richy’s Bar and Bistro in Clonakilty. I’m not really salad person but one look at the selection on offer and that’s where I started, who could resist. It was like an exquisite journey across continents, starting from the... More

This is the second time (2011) I have reviewed Richy's but in the interim we have eaten there many times. Richy's is always our first choice if we want a top class meal in Clonakilty. The atmosphere in the Scandinavian style decor restaurant is friendly, laid back and unpretentious. Richy is passionate about food. He is continually exploring the latest... More

I had the prawn and crab starter, the portion was tiny and it cost 12.50! Crazy expensive. I had the steak main course, I counted 4 pieces of carrots in the vegetable bowl! I didn't think it was the children portion I ordered. I had the chocolate dessert, one piece of a chocolate biscuit. It was very nice, but it... More
