We often use tripadvisor when visiting a new place to check out the local "must see" or where to eat places and most of the time we are pleased with tripadvisor recommendations. HOWEVER while on our way to Clonakilty we were searching best places to eat and Richys Bar and Bistro came up as number 3 out of 29 so we thought we would give it a go.
It was sunday lunch time and the place was quiet enough, we sat at a table for 4 but had to move shortly after as there was a terrible draught blowing in from the kitchen ( where a door open to an outside area was died open). We were reading the menus and a waitress came over and took our drink orders - fine. She answered any questions that we had and finally we made our choices. Our food arrived but it I can only say it was mediocre, lacked seasoning, and overall our trip to this restaurant was disappointing. The wait staff never came back to our table after the food was served and when paying the bill I was asked if everything was ok. I replied that" it was only alright". The cashier asked if there was a problem, I said that there wasnt a problem but the meal was only ok. She seemed happy enough that she had asked and there wassnt a problem so she gave me the final tally. I paid and left.....never intending to return I might add.
