The Food
We thrive on serving our guests with the best locally sourced produce and aim to meet our customers every need. It's not just about the food or the service separately but the whole package. The team at Richy's is dedicated to producing a dining experience where the guests feel relaxed and happy and receives fresh food prepared to a very high standard. Our menu offers a variety of dishes incorporating seafood, salads, small bites, steaks and desserts.

Everything is made in house including bread, biscotti and salad dressings. We recently served Spaghetti with Bantry Bay clams in tomato and chilli sauce, only hours after they were gathered from the shore. When possible all seafood is sourced from local fishermen.

Our menus change seasonally. Being in West Cork we are spoiled with wonderful artisan producers such as Ummera Smoked Products from whom we have smoked duck breast and smoked salmon; Edward Twomey's famous Clonakilty black pudding; Devoy's Organic Farm vegetables and fruit and Dave Bushby's wonderful Rosscarbery strawberries to name but a few!

Diners are tempted with weekly changing specials boards and a well thought wine list. We offer about 30 different wines, enough to have a good choice but not too many to scare one off.

The Dining Room

Richy's Restaurant offers a warm and relaxing atmosphere where one can sip a glass of wine from the bar and chat with friends. The dining area is in two sections with bright colourful walls, a small bar area and dark wooden tables. To one side is an opening to the Kitchen where Richy and his team can be seen creating your gastronomic delight!

Holding up to 100 guests, there is a great buzz about the place. Richy's is a restaurant where locals and tourists return again & again. With the restaurant being in two sections, Richy's can cater for evening dinners, private functions or for someone looking for a quiet corner.
