I'm come back time and time again for this food. it is probably the best Ethiopian place around Toronto :P... but maybe I shouldn't say that since I don't' want it to be packed all the time.

I read the most recent reviews of this restaurant and decided to have my son's birthday supper there. When we arrived on a cold December Monday there were only a few people sitting by the bar. After a while we were given menus. I noticed in their beer menu the ale was called 'Ali' and the lager was called 'larger'.... More

I waited patiently for the end of the Toronto Film Festival to enjoy a meal at Torontos most highly rated Habesha (Ethiopian) restaurant. It was truly well worth the wait... I was greeted by a mellow moody space with a redish brown color scheme which set the mood for a great meal after such a busy week. I had Kitfo... More

There were a good number of people there on Sunday but we enjoyed great atmosphere and service. So glad for the owner and staff, and the food that never disappoints. Congrats to the lovely cook, you do a great job! We were lucky to have the whole family with you, great memories!

Wine list that doesn't accommodate . Tough beef . Cockroach on the wall . The worst part of the cockroach was the server's casual attitude . She pointed to the open front door with a patio and simply stated " it must have come from outside " . No apology and a very indifferent attitude . Yes ! We paid... More

If you like Ethiopian food, you cannot go wrong here. This is a great spot. We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was almost full. Nice and simple atmosphere. Good service. Food was amazing. We ordered 4 dishes between 3 of us and left absolutely stuffed. The Doro Wat was the best I have ever had. Drinks and... More

My sister and I took our parents here for our birthday dinner. We were not disappointed. I have tried several Ethiopian restaurants in Toronto and I had the best experience here. Waitresses are very friendly, there is a lady who I think is the owner who I noticed walking around and seemed to know a lot of the patrons there.... More

I think the name Rendez Vous goes back to when this was an Italian restaurant, a history embedded in the floor, which has a mosaic map of Italy. But the name is perfect; this is a rendez vous where Ethiopians in the heart if Little Ethiopia gather to enjoy jazz and soccer in the background and beautifully-prepared Ethiopian food in... More

This place is a find; it's not too big or too small and the servers are attentive and helpful without being intrusive. I have had Ethiopian food in many places before and I was happily surprised by the quality and quantity- no one leaves hungry. The tables are not on top of each other and the orange lighting is kind... More
