I thought our prawn dish could have contained a bit more food... but very tasty. The duck dish was excellent. The lasagne and the apple dessert was disappointing, very ordinary but tasty. However the Profiteroles were excellent and so were the hot Chocolates

waitress bright and caring. ordered a table to suit a 94 year old.. and a good table provided. all enjoyed the meals, dessert and prompt friendly service. Possibly a larger selection of wines could be provided. and on saying that, it was nice to have simple, no expensive wine choices for lunch.... so i dont know.

DELICIOUS, FANTASTIC IN EVERY WAY! I had the most wonderful birthday party here with incredibly delicious food. The setting was perfect. The whole team at the restaurant were fabulous. Every meal was delicious and everybody ordered different things yet they all came out at a similar time and were all enjoyed by all my guests. Everybody has been raving about my birthday party. It was everything and more that I could have hoped for. I will be recommending this restaurant as will all of my friends and family because they deserve the highest recommendation. Thank you French Rendezvous you made my birthday completely perfect, because all my friends and family were happy as was I.

No criticism really. Perhaps could lay out the menu a little more clearly I.e. Indication where the galettes start and finish. Perhaps a box outline around them. Everyone very helpful and pleasant. Chairs nice and comfortable. Have been twice recently and really enjoyed. Certainly be back. Love your booking system. Thank you - very nice experience.
