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 are sorry to hear of your bad experience at RCafe. I have spoken to the members of staff working on this particular morning, it was a very busy Sunday morning with nearly 60 covers before 12pm. However this does not excuse how long you waited for your order. As I see that you wrote this review before bringing your... 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.

Heard so much about the place which probably upped my expectations. While I wasn't disappointed with the food I had hoped it to be nicer. Good food but nothing really special.
