Dear Littlechef 2018 Would you like to make yourself known to New Rendezvous management as I believe you are deliberately trying to sabotage our business? Would it not be better to make your issues known at the time rather than write a complete load of...More

I stopped here whilst waiting for a flight. The food, atmosphere and staff were all excellent. The portion sizes were large but didn’t compromise on quality. Next time I’m this way I will definitely come again.

Under new management, this restaurant is much improved with good food, good portion size and not as rushed as previously. But shame on them! They don’t pass on tips to part-time staff. We don’t know about full-time staff, maybe they don’t get them either? Either...More
