About

Dillon’s Restaurant serves extraordinary food, cooked exquisitely, in a relaxed West Cork setting. Owners Richard Milnes and Valeria Ventura aim to deliver an experience in culinary finesse, with a warmth and love for all things food.

Richard Milnes studied at CIT before working in Dublin, the Park Hotel and Mulcahy’s in Kenmare. Internationally, he gained further experience at Bristol’s Culinaria and Heston Blumenthal’s renowned restaurant The Fat Duck in Bray. Having returned to his native West Cork, Richard serves up the area’s incredible local produce with elegance and finesse. The intimate and friendly setting of Dillon’s Restaurant in the small village of Timoleague provides the perfect backdrop for the dishes he creates. Management and front-of-house aspects are run by Valeria Ventura, hailing from Switzerland and Italy. Together, Richard and Valeria are aiming to bring Irish food to an international stage.
