A great spot for a lunch, the BLT was amazing and their chunky chips tasty! Great portion size and staff very welcoming.

Only home from Richys and still thinking about the fabulous meal we just had! We had seen reviews before but had never tried until tonight and what a treat it was! From start to finish the food was amazing and the two waitresses were so nice and very friendly! We have been coming down to Clonakiltu for the last 20+... More

I'm still glowing from a very pleasant family meal in Richie's. Michelle made it a wonderful experience by accommodating our preteens, teens and adults. All tired on a last minute outing, it was relaxing and comfortable. The food was excellent, pizzas, calzones and curry, everything was very fresh and tasty. The only down side was the portions were too big... More

Ate here on a Tuesday evening. The place was very quiet but that did not take away from the food. The waitress was very friendly. The beef curry was "to die for" and the shoulder rack of lamb was equally enjoyed. Will return

Everything was amazing; gorgeous glass of wine, beautiful sorbet, lovely lasagne from the specials board and the best dessert I've ever had in a restaurant! The presentation,... More

Went there with my family on a late Saturday night as we all craving for some desert and we had a great surprise! They were the only place still serving food and both service and desert were amazing. They always come up with new menus so it's definitely worth checking them out.

We visit Clonakilty approximately once every 6 weeks and almost invariably eat in Richy's. From a most comprehensive menu, it is very difficult to choose, because each dish sounds so good. Richy makes the best bouillabaisse I have ever tasted, great monkfish rissotto, superb crab on brown bread - also the best I have had, mauritian curry, to name but... More
