Been going to the Rendezvous for many years and it never disappoints. We had the meal for 2 and it was excellent as was the service.
Great service, great food and lively atmosphere. Visited after the Scotland v Ireland rugby on Saturday evening. Given how busy the restaurant was the food and service were excellent.
The Rendezvous has been an Edinburgh institution since the '50s. They do an excellent value lunch for about £9 - great choices and the food and service are excellent. Book now!
