After wandering along the street reading restaurant menus, trying to choose a place for dinner we spotted a Mauritian curry listed on the Richys menu. Having Mauritian family and having visited Mauritius we were keen to find out why there would be a Mauritian curry on the menu of an Irish restaurant. We soon found out that the chef/owner, Richy...

We were seated at 7.45. We waited several minutes to be brought a menu or drinks order taken. There was a significant delay between ordering and being served our starter. Then a full hour and a quarter later we received our main. Really was far too slow. The waitress was apologetic and we couldn't help but feel sorry for her.... More

In order to be fair to readers I think I will have to make a second trip before I give it an excellent rating. My experience wasn't excellent even though walking through the door I thought we were going to be in for a real treat. It's possible the time of day we chose to eat there wasn't ideal, and... More

We visited on a Saturday night, and I appreciate that the staff were very busy, but we were very disappointed with the quality of service we received. Our drinks orders were taken first, but we did not receive our drinks until after the starters had been finished - even after asking 3 different staff members, one of whom brought us... More

I count myself very lucky to have to option to eat in Richys fairly regularly. The unfussy layout of the restaurant around a lighted stove sets the tone for a very pleasant evening. The food is freshly prepared and the 'specials' are always a temptation. The food is sourced locally and indeed much of it is produced on Richys own... More

A gem of a restaurant.....full of fresh ingredients, creative cooking and amazing food. We were in Clonakilty for just one night and were drawn like a magnet to this place. We managed lunch, dinner and breakfast the second morning. It was just delightful If you're traveling in West Cork make a pilgrimage here. Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff complete the... More

Firstly myself and a few friends arrived for some food around 3pm. The place looked under staffed. We waited for around 20 -30mins for our order to be taken. And another 15 mins after that for some water for the table. One of us ordered from the black board on the wall and we were told that it was the... More
