Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My daughter and I had a lovely lunch here, she’s coeliac and staff were very knowledgeable on her menu choices making it an enjoyable, rather than worrying, experience. The chicken durum is amazing!! Friendly staff and quick service.

Went for a birthday lunch. Quality of food was good but not nearly enough for the price - starter & main course for three plus tip came to £90 - pretty steep for a lunch. Only 4 thinly cut pieces of lamb & chicken in...kebabs. Atmosphere wasn’t particularly welcoming to be honest. Won’t be back.More

Saturday evening visit. Food freshly prepared and good quality …but expensive for what it was. Couple of staff members were desperate for us to leave, despite apparent 11pm closure, asked for a liqueur at 10pm and the face said it all !!!! Felt uncomfortable from...that moment and happy to drink up and get out !!! On that basis, not sure I’d rush back !!!More

This place never fails to deliver. All the food was great - arancini, sausage, chicken wings, humous all fab for starters - then we had a mix of steak, king prawn and mixed kebabs. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Nice and reasonably priced wine. Always good...service and a nice atmosphere for lunch. Catered well for dairy allergy which is an important factor for us.More

Had a fabulous meal at rendezvous. Excellent service from all staff we came into contact with on a busy night. Had the vegetarian mezze which was a mix of hot and cold dishes. So many fabulous flavours. Felt like we were getting very good value...for money in a world of mediocre standards. Rendezvous at Nargile is by far one of the top restaurants in Aberdeen.More

The food here is amazing! To name but a few… the hummus, the prawns, the Greek salad is absolutely delicious. Steak kebab and rice is something else! Staff are very helpful and friendly. One of my favourite places to eat!!

Reading all of the fantastic reviews, I was very keen to try this venue and had previously not booked thinking it would be okay but they were unable to accommodate us so, for this trip, I booked well in advance. The venue, service and the...quality of the food were very good. The speed of service was good although we were on a 'timer' when we booked as they'd told us they needed the table back in 2 hours. However, the size of the portions left a lot to desired! It was barely adequate but I had expected more. A few days prior to this trip, I had eaten at a small Kurdish cafe and, whilst the quality wasn't the same, it wasn't far off it! The portion size at my cafe was bigger and it cost a quarter of what I paid here. All in all, I've tried here and it was fine but I think I'll try elsewhere for my next trip to Aberdeen.More

Absolutely fantastic meal there last night. Truly one of the best meals I’ve ever had. We opted for the Mez and there wasn’t a single bit that wasn’t delicious. Highly recommend

We had the set menu, the range of cold and hot starters then main courses was phenomenal. Main courses were excellent including the lamb dish. Then topped off with selection of small sweets (which are very sweet!)

My partner and I live locally and decided on a whim to try Rendezvous. We have visited the Nargile in the city centre a few times and really like it, so had high hopes for this place. On arrival, it was busy and buzzy, we...were promptly taken to our seats and coats hung-up. You can choose from hot and cold meze and a range of mains, or there is a set menu where things just get brought out to you. We decided to share three meze and share two mains. The hummus from both Nargile restaurants is the best hummus I have ever tasted. I have been to so many Mediterranean restaurants in various cities and nothing no other hummus comes close! All the dishes, were delicious and the meat on the main courses were cooked to perfection - top marks. Service was good, some servers were better than others. There were a few younger girls, who I didn't really think were on the ball compared to the staff - just lacked a bit of attention to detail and remembering our requests - a minor gripe really. Overall, I throughly recommend this place.More

Living local to the Rendezvous at Nargile you can take it for granted and having eaten there a few times over the last 6 months it is only fair to leave a review. The food is absolutely lovely, I have never had a bad meal,...for all the years we have been going the consistency remains every time. The only thing is the ‘window’ of time you have to enjoy your meal before the next sitting. If you are not last in, then service can feel rushed but otherwise, it remains an Aberdeen favourite. Compliments to the chefs and all the team. See you soon.More
