“Rendezvous, Palmerston North”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We went as a group of three. The garlic bread was just OK, and disappointed that the wedges (which were excellent) came out as a starter rather than with the mains, which is what we expected. The lamb and chicken mains were great, but the risotto was too creamy and a bit sickly. The fish with the risotto was very good though. Time between the first and second courses was a bit long.

Drinks range is good, and appreciated the range of beers on offer.

“Always good”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Have been many times and have always enjoyed meals and service. Went for lunch on the 30th of April with about 10 work colleagues. The meals were pre-ordered for 12.15pm and all came out exactly on time and were all good. Nice friendly wait staff.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Came for lunch with 2 friends on April 24th Wasn't impressed with anything. When we arrived the young girl looked up and seemed quite annoyed we had walked in. She lead us to the table and didn't say a thing but stood behind us with a pad and paper Gave us no time to look at the drinks menu, but wanted to take our order. I had the chicken ceasar sandwich, was really disappointing just salad greens, bacon, parmesan and dressing with chips was $25. I dont mind paying for good food- but honestly I could have probably got better for half the price in town.

“Cocktails on a Thursday!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

They have an excellent cocktail menu and on Thursdays, they are all $10! I went here on a date an it created some excellent talking points. The Long Island Iced teas are served in a teapot in the style of the prohibition era. They have a delicious Appletini and the Rum sours is a treat. Service was great too and they have a pool table in the bar. Must go back and try the food soon!
