We ate in Richmond last night, which was our second visit and I can't wait to go back again. Every single mouthful of food was absolutely delicious. The service was perfect and the whole place spotless. My partner has some quite specific dietary needs so...the chef redesigned one of the specials plate for her. The wine that was recommended to me, to accompany the melt in the mouth beef was gorgeous. Congratulations to everyone involved in Richmond. It really is a gem.More

First evening out with my lovely friend since lockdown. Joyful despite the increasing Covid cases countrywide, and our sheer exhaustion with the whole thing. Lovely personable staff, pand great social distancing. Gorgeous food, the halibut with peas and leeks was fab. Ottimo as they would...say in Italy (if we could only go there!!) . Richmond was a pretty good substitute. Bravo!More

We were here last night for my husband birthday and everything was perfect. Our first meal out since the lockdown and sure it was a nice treat! The food is out of this world and the service was excellent, Cian took great care of us....For starter, my husband had the Sea Bream Ceviche and I had the Tomato & Mozzarella and both were delicious. My husband was kept repeating how good the ceviche was. Next, for the main courses, he had the fish of the day and I had the Wild Mushrooms and Potato Gnocchi and wow, sure didn't disappoint. Delicious vegetarian dishes! Also, worth mentioning they had lots of hand sanitizer. I highly recommend it!More

This was the first restaurant my wife and I visited post lockdown and it was an absolute beaut. Lovely atmosphere. Nice separation of the tables, staff very friendly and accommodating. I got the mussels starter and the lamb main. Both delicious. The Richmond Black Forest...was excellent. Loved the crunchy bits. Excellent wine list. Will be back!More

Greeted at the front door, taken to our table upstairs all safe and inline with Covid-19 regulations. Handed the menu and then our server brought us through the specials. We went for Mussels, peas, white wine cream, sourdough and Duck leg & pudding sausage roll,...fried egg, celeriac, brown sauce to start. Couldn't fault either. For mains we both went for the daily special, one for a 7oz Dexter Ribeye Steak and one fillet of Halibut, both excellent, the fish was slightly cold but didn't take-away from the taste. For dessert we both had Lemon posset, berries, honeycomb, divine. The service was excellent, not rushed but attentive with nice space between each course. Bill was €130 for x 2. 3 courses with 2 glasses of red wine and 1 N/A beer. Highly recommend Richmond, thanks to Russel and his team.More

This was the last restaurant I dined at before lockdown and it’s hard to think back to that time when we all freely moved about the city without a care in the world. In lockdown Richmond has started a collection service and it’s super good....Menu is available each Monday and changes weekly. I’ve enjoyed the barley risottos , the pressed duck, fish gratins , assorted veg sides and innovative desserts - I’m a fan. Please support the hard working and talented team at this challenging time, need to book ahead due to demand and limited numbers.More

Had an early dinner at Richmond last night - delicious fish tart with dill to start followed by an earthy tasting bowl of mussels with chorizo ( accompanied by their tdf chips) and lastly an incredible rhubarb dessert. ( see pictures) Lamb neck was also...a hit ( served 3 ways). Super food that suits all tastes. Winning formula. Super value early bird menu too if you’re in town after work or after a day of shopping. Top marks to the team.More
