Very nice indeed - this is a real asset to Westerham. Friendly staff, good menu and food that lives up to the menu. A jewel in Westerham’s crown where the choices are few. Thoroughly recommend

Another excellent visit to The Rendezvous. We took two friends and this was their first experience at this very good brasserie. The Mussels were sublime as always here. Service was efficient and friendly which is always appreciated. Highly recommended!

We had an enjoyable midweek lunch at this brasserie, not for the first time. Food was all delicious and the service was pleasant and assured. Portion sizes were very acceptable and we came away feeling very satisfied without being overly full. They were able to deal easily with gluten free requirements of one diner. Highly recommended.

I booked a table for my guest and I two days beforehand. I have enjoyed the Rendezvous for 20 years but have not been recently. We arrived at 7:20pm to a perfunctory “welcome” and were shown to a very small table by a pillar ie no window view, or room. We ordered our drinks, olives and bread which finally arrived. We ordered a risotto and chicken stroganoff which hadn’t arrived by 8:55pm when for the first time in my life I walked out of the restaurant. Our order had apparently not made it to the kitchen! They were busy, rushing around looking harassed, appeared to have sufficient staff but with insufficient training, in my view. No apology, no offer of discount.....embarrassing. We left politely, but I will be writing to the restaurant. I am left wondering what on earth went wrong?

Unfortunately two of our party were held up on the M23 so we occupied our table a little later than booked. The food was excellent and the service generally good but we felt we were hurried out at the end of the meal. This was probably because we were late starting our meal however it was not very late into the afternoon. We were not offered coffee after the deserts.
All of our party have eaten at Rendezvous on several previous occasions and have enjoyed it immensely so I guess we will go back again.

A TAD BETTER THAN AVERAGE BUT THIS WAS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT IN THE COST INCLUDING THE 12.5% GRATUITY RESULTING IN REASONABLE VALUE OVERALL.

Given a round table for four which was very nice but next to a table for ten so was very noisy. Asked to be moved so got quiet table at the back which was much better. Had a lovely meal and good wine. This is half way point for meeting friends so will be back.

A really enjoyable evening. Our table for five was a round table, which made our evening chatting an excellent experience. Fantastic food and wine with attentive staff. This was our second visit and hoping to come along again in the near future.

I have been a regular customer of the Rendezvous for several years. It went through a low patch a few years ago, but have never been disappointed in recent years. Prices seem to have increased, but that seems to apply to lots of restaurants whether they are good or bad. Two of us had 2 courses (1 of us from the fixed price menu and 1 from the a la carte), 1 glass of Prosecco, 3 low alcohol beers, a 50 cl carafe of wine and 1 brandy. The bill came to £100 including service. The mushroom risotto starter is to die for! I never order risotto in any other restaurant. It's definitely one of my favourite restaurants in the area. The staff and ambience is good.

This is a very nice restaurant although we tend only to go there for anniversaries or birthdays. The ford is very good and the service and wines also. The only very tiny complaint is that the young servers can be a bit over the top obsequious. Good to see them trying so hard to be professional but it can be a tiny bit annoying.

The restaurant deserves it's good reputation as we really enjoyed our evening. The service was very good and attentive. The menue was large enough to make us want to come back and try something different. The waitress helped me choose my main course and when it arrived I was not disappointed. The clientele seemed to be an older age group and as such emptied out quite early. If there were to be any negatives it would be the cost as the bill was quite high and I personally dislike service charges being added automatically. The food was however excellent.

Our second time at Le Rendezvous and it didn't disappoint. We had the Salmon Rillettes & Seafood Risotto to start followed by Monkfish Basquaise and Lamb Rump. All the food was excellent and very enjoyable. The front of house is run by two young lads who were absolutely charming. They have obviously had great training and were very professional and attentive. A lovely evening out. This is the best restaurant for miles around !

My wife and I have been coming to Rendezvous for over 30 years and despite some ups and downs over the years, we can honestly say that it is currently at the top of its game. Very welcoming host, delightful staff and superb food. It is always a joy to go there and enjoy some real French Cuisine. Highly recommended.

Been here several times before, but not good this time.

Service was poor and slow (45 minute before the starter arrived), and it wasn’t that busy. Had to ask repeatedly for more water and wine top ups.

Food was very average :
Pate could have been shop bought. French onion soup was more like gravy. Creme brûlée was like a thick custard. Mains ok.
Shame, as we like it there, but will try somewhere else now.
