An absolute hidden gem Gorgeous location and the food is incredible
Amazing waitress food choice very limited to crepes and top dollar for lunch.
always a great experience. one of our favourites
You are my favorite restaurant and with my friends I have a long lunch monthly. If there is a play on at the Pumphouse dinner with you also.
A group of 6 of us recently enjoyed a beautiful meal at the French Rendezvous before going to a play at the Pumphouse. We all loved our meal thank you.. The restaurant us in a beautiful setting by the lake. The service was great.
Awesome venue by the lake for a lunch or dinner. Food and service was amazing.
It is a fantastic restaurant, amazing food with a great chef
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch last Saturday - food and service excellent. Also nice and cosy. Thank you.
Great service. Friendly staff and she took the time to explain every dish we ordered. A friendly smile. Chef nice enough to say hi and thank you from the kitchen. Place nice and cosy view is spectacular. Highly recommended. Food great very affordable.
The family always love going to French Rendez-vous. We are regulars for the last 14 years!
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.
As usual, a great authentic French bistro meal. Meals were delicious and very well presented.
Lovely venue and parking always easy. Food always delicious and excellent friendly service.
Always a very pleasant way to enjoy lunch with friends or on our own. Proper French food and great ambiance. A favourite.
We love French Rendez-vous more than ever now as it’s the closest we’ll get to France in 2020 and perhaps 2021!
Everything about this restaurant is fantastic, been there 4 times now and everything has always been awesome.
After many visits we love it all.... great staff, menu, atmosphere, view.....
The galettes were amazing! Took us right back to our first holiday together in France. Will definitely be back. Thank you :)
A little disappointed that the 'roast beetroot' was tinned sliced beetroot. French onion soup not warmed through enough. Service and ambiance was superb though and coffee was also very good.
Definitely a good place to go : delicious food, friendly staff, amazing view!
Lovely spot in Takapuna. The view is charming and the Cafe is very cosy and quiet. I definitively recommend the French Rendez-vous crepes , they are amazingly good. Service is excellent and very friendly.
An outstandingly good experience in every way, thank you.
Great place for brunch I have already recommended
Our first choice after lock down. As always, simply stunning food, that never disappoints
It became drafty as a second door kept being left open. Was all very nice but the crepe was a little non existent and the sauce a bit meagre and a bit thin and tasteless. Perhaps the sauce just was so think it soaked into the crepe and it became nothing. However that is being critical - it was really very nice.
As always a very pleasant experience both food and service-wise. Look forward to our next visit. Thank you.
Great food nd ambience
Totally enjoyed my time there.
We went with a large family group. Service was friendly and quick. Food was really nice and good value for money. The setting was in a beautiful spot right by Lake Pupuke which give kids the opportunity to run around outside while you grab that extra coffee. Easy parking right outside too
Overall very pleasant but the chicken ballotine was cold. The 3 meals came out separately, with small time delays & the waiter wasn’t even sure they were for our table. Will definitely be back though
The 3 of us totally enjoyed our long lunch experience and have decided to make it our regular luncheon place. Food lovely ,service friendly and comfortable seating. This is a great place to eat come rain or shine. Thank you.
Very little duck in perigord galette
A group of us met before a show at Pumphouse and really enjoyed the experience . The really lovely friendly waitress made the night.
Very pleasant lunch experience, enjoyed by all four diners. Large noisy table beside us but very peaceful once they left. Looking into sun towards lake made reading menu difficult. Otherwise great place to eat. We have eaten there four or five times.
Had venison which was a real treat. Cooked and presented to a high standard.
Was busier than I expected and therefore more noisy. I believe this was partly because there was a group of French speakers there who come for regular meetings. On the other hand it was good to see the cafe well patronized!
Online booking was a breeze. The waitress was friendly and informative. The food took a bit too long to be served after we order it. I found the onion soup a bit too sweet. All in all a good experience and would come again.
Friendly service and delicious food in a great location. Excellent parking and wheelchair friendly.
The food here is delicious and well priced. Great position by the lake and easy parking. Only one other table of customers, possibly due to the early closing, which has negative effect on the ambience. A shame as with such great food it should be packed to the gunnels.
Love this café and will certainly return but when the back doors as well as the front door were opened, it was quite cold.
Service as usual was friendly and good however this time they forgot our dessert otherwise would have received a 10
