Rendez-Vous Restaurant is an upscale bistro located on Takuapa Road, in the heart of Phuket Town and a few steps away from the city nightlife. A small terrace welcomes visitors on the first floor, which comprises two rows of tables, on each side of the room, and a fully-stocked bar near the end. There is also a second floor, perfect for a large group of friends who wish to be loud and away from the main floor.
The venue’s design is minimalist, with naked concrete walls carefully decorated with local art. You will appreciate the high ceiling, which gives a sense of openness to the restaurant. Food-wise, Rendez-Vous Restaurant does not disappoint and offers a mix of international dishes and traditional Thai cuisine, the best of both world, and a large selection of pasta. All dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients, and a whole lot of love is placed into each creation.
Some of the guests’ favorites are the Pork Tenderloin with Blue Cheese Sauce, served with a selection of greens and French fries, the Dirty Chick, a half-chicken marinated in a succulent secret recipe, and the Squid Ink Fettuccine with Scallops, cooked to perfection.
The owner of the venue has a passion for wines and this is reflected in their wine list, which has a good balance between old and new world. Their house wine tastes really good and is a good option to start with if you are unsure which one to choose. Rendez-Vous Restaurant also comes up with a list of local and imported beers should you fancy.
Another positive aspect of the restaurant is the quality of service, which is similar to what you would expect in a five-star resort; a very polite and discreet staff ensures you will have a pleasant evening while listening to the background music, reminiscing of the tunes of Buddha Bar.
As usual with the area of Phuket Town, parking can be an issue, though you should be able to park your vehicle on Bangkok Road if all else fails.
