Met friends here for dinner on Monday evening had a wonderful experience. The wine list was good, the menu varied and food delicious and good portions. I am a vegetarian and would definitely return. It's a small restaurant where you get good service with lots of atmosphere.

This is my favourite Exeter restaurant for birthdays and special events. We have been there several times for mine and my husbands. The staff are always friendly on the phone when making a reservation and take into account our request for a table in the corner. The his year was no exception and even though we decided to make the... More

The food was simply divine. I had the smoked duck starter with figs, Parmesan shavings and onion which was superb and the venison as my main. Neither the food or service could be faulted. This place has a great atmosphere and I look forward to the next drive down to eat here. Great little find hidden away in Exeter.

I hadn't been to this place for years and was blown away that it really hadn't changed at all. The food really is delicious, perfectly cooked well balanced flavours and well seasoned. It was packed on a Thursday lunchtime- lovely atmosphere and great service. Two course lunch deal is a fantastic deal for the quality. Wine list is decent as... More

We finally managed to eat at Rendezvous last night after wanting to try it for ages. We weren't disappointed and can see why it's rated so highly on tripadvisor. Service was very good and the waitress helped us choose a wine we'd like (and gave us a few samples to try too which was great). We'd mentioned I was gluten... More

The tunnels of exeter are well known and fun to explore - ancient and mystical. But there is another tunnel to discover. Under the road in Southernhay is a wine cellar with delicious, innovative, magnificently presented food, to boot. RENDEZVOUS. Tunnel into it - but book for it is popular. A wine list to drool over - best blackboards since... More

I visited with my Mum & Sister for a birthday meal. It took us so long to decide what to have as everything looked so delicious. We found ourselves eyeing up what every other table around us had opted for! There was a mix up with our table booking but the lovely waitress gave us free drinks while she found... More

Found this place completely by chance and they managed to fit us in without a booking. I ordered the scallops which were really good and my steak was brilliant too. Definitely recommend
