I remember some few years ago my mother really liked dining at this place and at that point, so did I. However I am not sure if it was because then I had yet to have a chance to have better quality&tasting food or because the standards at Rendezvous used to be really good. Because recently my dining experience there was nothing short of extremely disappointing.Although I do like the ambience of the place and how it's more al-fresco dining, however it isn't going to be pleasant if the weather get
Although I do like the ambience of the place and how it's more al-fresco dining, however it isn't going to be pleasant if the weather gets any hotter. Even worst if it starts to rain when there is a big crowd dining there as there is only so many tables with 'shelters'. For starters we ordered half a dozen of escargots with garlic & cheese sauce. Although I used to like this dish, I wasn't pleased when it arrived at our table because the snails were overcooked till it was chewy. Then somehow the sauce was only lukewarm and bland which I have no idea how that was possible. To share, we ordered the fried chicken chop which comes with two hot dogs and a side of fries plus some steamed vegetables. There really isn't anything to shout about this dish because it was all just sub-par and not what you'd expect of a chicken chop. The meat tasted frozen and the hot dogs were the kind you would get frozen too, plus there wasn't any sauce so it's all just really dry. Not to mention bland tasting, including the fries. Another dish we ordered was the black pepper chicken and thankfully, this was not deep fried and was an actual piece of chicken. However neither one of us was pleased by the looks of it as the meat was so-so cooked and the sauce was just a goopy mess.
After dining there for the second time recently, I am pretty sure that this would be the last place that I'd visit for a western meal. Regardless of how cheap the prices are because I can get better ones elsewhere for a little bit more.
