Fresh, imaginative and varied menu. Stopped in for early dinner when we saw their sign on the street with small plate offerings. Excellent choice! We sampled about 4-5 items, all were beautifully prepared and presented. Try this restaurant!

I first contacted Ricky's 2 months prior to our hen weekend. I was conscious that we had a large number for dinner (34) and it was the start of the busy season.

Service was really bad, while really pleasant and friendly I had to ask 3 times for a glass of wine, had to ask twice for water & my daughter had... More

We were visiting the area and were attracted by their slightly unusual menu. Loved the simplicity of the decor, service was v friendly and v efficient. We went for the tapas , I had the mussels, though slightly overlooked the sauce was delish, squid was also yummy, the missus had the smoked chicken croquettes, though slightly lacking in smoked chicken...

We visited Richys late on a Saturday afternoon between 4pm and 5pm the witching hour. Its too early for dinner and a lot of places stop serving lunch at 4pm. That wasn't an issue. My wing man at the time was hangry. They hadn't ate since breakfast and any thing could set off an avalanche of abuse. It is a... More

We had an outstanding tapas dinner and every dessert in the menu. All the food was wonderful. The staff was delightful and friendly. The food was amazing. Richy came out and said hello to us and he is funny and engaging. Great evening.
