Tried to book a table for 6 on a Saturday evening at 8pm. Was told that we would have to vacate the table by 10pm as it would be open for the night club or we would have to pay 10.00 per person to stay at our table. What a rip off. Couldn't believe it .

Food good but evening ruined by dispute over the bill at the end. They conveniently 'forgot' to take off our 15 people's deposits plus other financial mistakes. Rude waitress waving her hand in my face repeatedly after being asked not to. Same waitress used 'contactless' pay from my card without asking first - especially as bill was disputed, this was...

We attended the Rendezvous for the first time after its relocation. We will not be going back. We had reserved a table for 7pm and turned up at 5 minutes before. We stood around waiting for somebody to notice us for 10 minutes or so. When we were finally discovered we found it very difficult to make the waiter understand... More

Went here as love the rendezvous normally but this is the first time since it has moved. Now the quality of the food is the same but some items aren't on the menu anymore for example chicken toast. It was also quite annoying that whilst we were still eating they were moving tables around us to clear the floor ready... More

Visited this new so say Rendezvous for my birthday. The service was awful the food was cold and over cooked. We were told we could not have some of the food which we ordered, considering it is advertised as (eat as much as you like). The staff were quite rude and we were hurried all the way through the meal.... More

I was looking forward to trying the "new" Rendezvous since it's move up to Old Town . We were a large group and booked the Sunday buffet lunch .The place was so dark inside for midday that we couldn't see anything when we first walked in . Unfortunately this place is trying to be a nightclub and restaurant all rolled... More

Visited the restaurant as a catch up with old friends was really excited to try the new restaurant and see the decor as loved rendezvous before it moved venue. Well the new decor looks like a fair ground and circus mixed in to one not really high class that I was expecting. There was also a smell of wet dog... More

This was the first time we ate here after they moved from the older place. As you enter from bright outside light one might feel as if you are in a dark cave but once you settle down you get used to it and gradually you start appreciating the excellent décor and the seating arrangement. Nicely led tables with enough... More

Went for an anniversary meal, we were the only couple sat amongst tables of large, loud groups. Food was average at best. Service was beyond terrible. Very disappointing.
