We visited as a party of 3, at around 8pm midweek without booking. The place was packed but they managed to find us a table. A lively, fun atmosphere. We opted for the buffet and had a huge variety of starters and mains - all of which were of a good quality. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. Great... More

We have been regular visitors to the restaurant for some 30 years and until recently have always enjoyed their food. However since the move to old town we have found that, in our opinion, the standard has dropped. After receiving our first takeaway from the new location the standard was so different that we enquired whether they had changed the... More

Well, it's been a while since we ate at the rendezvous, last time was at the old location, but we had heard that it was still worth a try. The venue is huge! Lots of table but certainly lots of space, didn't feel cramped like we did in the old place. Menu not as extensive as before & the eat... More

It was the first time we have visited, since they moved to Old Town. We loved the set up of varying levels etc. The service was great, with plenty of staff on hand, but it was early. The food was excellent and the price was ok as we went for the single price deal. Yes, we will be back.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night, we were aware of the policy to vacate table by 10.30 because of nightclub but still felt we had plenty of time to enjoy our meal. This would've been the case if service was not so slow but we were left unattended and without food on several occasions, including a 45 minute wait... More

Came here with my boyfriend and it was a really nice meal., they have buffet and a la carte available. We decided to go for buffet so we can explore more dishes.  The staff are really friendly and helpful. After our meal, we decided to go to the bar for a drink before leaving.  The new venue is lovely and... More
