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

I have to admit I haven't been to dinner in Richys for almost a year, thought I knew I was getting having been there A LOT before, all I can say is WOW! 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

We stopped at Ricky's R café on a rainy day in Clonakilty. We enjoyed 2 excellent flat whites & lemon drizzle cake served by very friendly staff. We were moving on otherwise would have liked to try the eclectic evening menu. We parked in the nearby Supervalu carpark. Clonakilty is a spaghetti junction of streets, one system & bypass

Stylish restaurant with good seafood and a selection of other tempting dishes. One of the dishes we had was rack of lamb, which turned out to be shoulder of lamb (should have read the menu more carefully!). The restaurant's response? No charge and a voucher for a free meal next time - very positive. Nice atmosphere and a good menu.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we are sorry you did not enjoy your lamb shoulder rack dish, however we are glad that we were able to offer you a missed opportunity voucher to use the next time you visit us. More
