My wife and I and two friends visited the Rendezvous on Saturday night. We’ve been going there on and off for a while. Great atmosphere, friendly efficient staff and a good menu. What spoilt it for me and I sent it back to be replaced was the three small scallops for a ten pond starter. The replacements were not a lot bigger. Come on we in the West country have access to wonderful fish, we have two excellent fishmongers in the town selling scallops of a reasonable size.

We were stuck in Exeter for longer than planned so looked for a place that was not one of the crop of chain restaurants that are everywhere
This came highly recommend and now we know why !!
Super selection on the menu and fixed price options were great
Crab starter was delicious and portion very generous
We both had the sea bream ...lovely
And I had space for the sticky toffee pudding
Perfect for business merits or simply a relaxed meal
Friendly staff

Walking through the door you are greeted by the nicest hosts. Their knowledge of the extensive range of wines and spirits sourced from all over the world is remarkable. We were enthusiastically recommended a wine to accompany the food we ordered and it was delicious. We sat in the beautiful garden in the centre of Southernhay and enjoyed our drink. A real find and highly recommended.
