Been here a couple of times - food is great. Staff are lovely. Well worth a visit! It's right on the high street so you can go for a drink in one of the many drinking establishments in town either before or after your meal.

Just fabulous food served by wonderful staff! We visited on a Monday night in January on a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant is cosy and welcoming. We had the Chef special of Beef Curry and Shoulder of rack of lamb, the food was amazing & flavorsome - lots of it! We will be back!

We decided to stop off here while travelling around west cork for 2 weeks and this was the only place we were dissapointed with. When we arrived at the restaurant we told the waitress that we had seen the owner of restaurant on television so had to try the food here, we were happy when we were told that the... More

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
