I had lunch here today and I must say it was the best gluten free pizza I've ever had. The food is beautiful and fresh and very nicely presented.

While the wine list is OK, the tapas menu, though it sounds grand, is terrible. We had some lamb skewers which were cremated and dried out like sawdust, underseasoned hummus (actually, if I didn't know it was hummus, I'd be wondering what I had). There were few other bits which tasted like they were bought in Tescos and re-heated.
Shame and disgrace really.
The desserts are a bit of a joke too - how can you serve profiteroles, bland crème brûlée and raw strawberries as a dessert for 10 euro? Overpriced!
Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Dear Rosie Z,

we are shocked to read your comments of your experience here at Richy restaurant. Our Lamb koftas are homemade with garlic, coriander, cumin seeds, chili, salt and pepper. Our Hummus is also homemade with Chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic and paprika. Richy takes pride in locally sourcing ingredients for all his dishes and by no means from 'Tescos'. Our Dessert sharing plate priced at 12.95, is made up of homemade Mauritian Vanilla bean crème brulee, rhubard and apple crumble, Salted Caramels balls. and fresh strawberries with chocolate sauce.
Therefore we feel your comments are unfair and dishonest.

Went there for a late lunch, so we were hungry and expecting some decent fare. The portions were measly considering what you're paying. Burgers were decidedly average to say the least.
