[Kifune Nakayoshi] Enjoy exquisite cuisine on a kawadoko with a sense of presence

The stools are placed just above the surface of the water, which is 10 degrees cooler than in the city, making this a paradise for Kyoto, where the heat is intense. The appeal of this place is that you can enjoy the coolness of the river by dipping your feet into the river from any of the seats.

The restaurant is proud of its kaiseki courses, where each dish is served freshly prepared, as it is cooked to order and not left in the kitchen. Ayu fish grilled with salt and somen noodles are included in all courses. In addition to kaiseki meals starting at 7,800 yen, hot pot meals such as sukiyaki and shabu-shabu with beef are also popular, starting at 9,100 yen.
