Rive Gauche represents local dining in Kilkenny at its best with hearty uncomplicated food made from the highest quality locally sourced ingredients. The menu is inspired by food that’s foraged, farmed and fished from the rugged coast of Ireland and includes a wide selection of dishes where the emphasis is on fresh produce while focusing on the seasons.
The new Kitchen and Cocktails Bar, close to Kilkenny Castle on The Parade, houses two distinctive areas; the bar, a chic and sophisticated drinking and the dining area, where its modern dishes take centre stage. The extensive hand-picked wine list offers something for everyone while a full bar is available for those that choose a traditional tipple with their dinner.
Sit back in our cosy restaurant, relax and enjoy a cocktail in this French inspired restaurant where Parisian luxury meets Irish charm, the decor is rich with deep reds, velvet drapes, crystal chandeliers and baby grand piano.
