Our waitress made us feel really welcomed and considering how busy it was, the food didn’t take long to come. I recommend the Fillet steak and we both agree that the Garlic bread was the best we’ve ever had!
Parking, atmosphere, nice bar, great food! This place has everything.
I would still go again

I’ve been here 3 times and my dinner mains have been average. I had the salmon which had no flavour, and veggies doused in sweet chilli sauce. Perhaps some focus on flavour and partnering meats with seasonings?
The ambience and layout is great, it’s just lacking in the flavour.

I order the chicken and chorizo Pasta and it was great!
In my experience it was good food, nice place, friendly staff… Love it here!
I had to update my review and add another star We have been back several times in the last few months and the food is always excellent, as is the service. I think the fact that the place always seems to be full every time we go there says it all! In my opinion, one of the best places to eat in Palmy.

Loved the meals and the staff were really great.
We rang beforehand to book a table but triple checked with the waitress that there would not be a wait of any sort and that they werent busy – she said no problem, no wait. So we booked a table for the night.
Everything was great aside from the long wait for the meals – this would not have been a problem if we werent tired and exhausted and wanted a short meal out before hitting the hay! – We just would have appreciated the honesty if told there may be one.
But still a very good restaurant and delicious meals. Great service, setting and all round one of the better in Palmerston North.
Came here for my husbands work doo one year and there was a lot of us, but the food came out quiet timely and it was great. Lots of fun and good times had by all.
My husband and I like to have our date nights here but have to book in early as they are usually always booked out.

Our waiter was really friendly and professional. Entree of garlic bread topped with cheese and drizzled with balsamic delicious, lots of flavour. I ordered the chicken and chorizo salad (which is not on the menu as listed here, as the menu has changed for winter I think), which was delicious. Plenty of salad greens as well as meat, and the capsicum, mushroom, pine nuts, crispy noodles and other toppings were well-matched with each other.
There was a slight wait between finishing our mains and clearing of our plates, which I was surprised about as the restaurant was not full. However, once cleared and dessert was ordered it was brought out promptly. I didn’t have dessert myself, but a hot chocolate that was sufficiently chocolate-y. Desserts that the others ordered looked delicious.
Rendezvous really does deliver when it comes to both food and hospitality, which is why I’ll continue to go back there. The pricing of the food is on par with other restaurants around the city, and very reasonable for an enjoyable dining experience.
I would pay more for the big breakfast, its that good! My partner and I nearly go there every week. We recently tried it out for dinner and it was very good! Delicious food very very flavourful. Pretty standard pricing I think for restaraunt food these days.
Will continue to frequent Rendezvous, getting hungry just thinking about it! YUM.
this place has all the potential to be really good but was disappointed last time i went.
had a Sunday breakie and the tomato’s were burnt on outside and stone cold in middle – I can do it like that myself guys, that’s why I pay top dollar to dine with you. the waitress were on automatic – nothing really wrong but like they really didn’t care if we where there or not.
have been there for lunch during the week before and it was always good but also been for Sunday lunch and it was very average
almost like great when boss is in and then steps down on weekends?
Went their again to give it a go….this time we all had lovely yum meal. as usual the place n sitting was always nice. I was only disappointed with the food. Which I hav told them and they actually were good this time. Good meal we enjoyed it this time…cheers
The service was excellent with no waiting at all. Good menu choices and the food is superb.
Great ambience, lovely fire on a cold winters night.
Will definitely be back!!
