Our Review of R Cafe at Richys Restaurant

When it comes to providing good food, great service and highlighting local produce Richy Virahsawmy means business. At Richy's Restaurant & R Cafe, the Clonakilty based restaurant where he plies his trade in the name of culinary genius, it's all about local. And why not?

Clonakilty is at the heart of West Cork gourmet heritage. It's fitting this Mauritian Londoner, who moved here several years ago, should focus on the foods of the region, in an establishment located in the epicentre of artisan Ireland. Richy's establishment features both the restaurant and the R Cafe, both offer a tasty and satisfying experience in local foods. 

The R Cafe is the place to be when you're looking for a spot of lunch in Clonakilty. Upon entering, you'll be welcome with the delectable scent of freshly baked breads and cakes that can be enjoyed with a cup of tea and coffee while you read the newspaper. For something more sustantial bite into Ed Twomney's Beef Burger or taste famous Clonakilty Black Pudding Crumb. Pizza's are also a favourite,m for seafood lovers the Union Hall Seafood pizza featuring prawns, some chilli and capers is a must try. 

Alongside the successful cafe and restaurant at Richy's, comes the opportunity to learn how to cook with the man himself.  Groups are taken into the sacred domaine of the kitchen, and put through their paces in style. Cookery Classes have family, seasonal and special occasion themes and details of dates are available on the website.
