Surrounded by painted concrete walls, giving the place an industrial feel, Rendez-Vous Restaurant is located by the entrance of Takuapa Road, bordering Phuket old town and its renowned night scene.
The owner and maestro of the venue, Khun Ae, will make sure you feel at home and impress you with his deep knowledge of wines and the culinary art.
The food is akin to what one would order in a gastro pub restaurant back in Europe, with the addition of traditional Thai food to please all palates.
We started the adventure with their Trio of Fried Cheese, which comprises Camembert, Mozzarella, and Brie, and served with a mildly spicy sauce, some Italian Bruschetta, which comes in two different flavors, and a Beef Carpaccio served with Parmesan shreds. We can feel the quality of the ingredient used from the first bite in, as well as the love and thoughts placed in every dish.
For the main course, we turned our head to the Black Ink Linguine with Seafood, pairing perfectly with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and the stunning Pork Filet served with a Blue Cheese Sauce, with a side of home-made fries and garnishes.
Both the seafood and the meat were cooked to perfection and provided the ultimate “melt in the mouth” moment you are looking for in comfort food.
They also serve a variety of beef, from the traditional Australian Angus to the less traditional Tasmanian Grain Fed and Wagyu MBS 5, all being served with your choice of sauces and side dishes. Feel free to explore the Thai Jim Jaew as it gives a nice kick of spices and flavors to your protein.
To finish the meal on a sweet tooth, we strongly recommend indulging in a Crepe Suzette, flambeed with Grand Marnier, or the Belgian Chocolate Tart for those not afraid of the hidden calories.
With an exhaustive wine list available to pair every dish, and a selection of well-prepared cocktails, Rendez-Vous Restaurant is certainly a venue you should consider when selecting a restaurant in Phuket Town. As an added bonus, the proximity to the numerous bars in the area guarantees a fun time ahead after a delightful meal with your friends or family.
Rendez-Vous Restaurant is located on 41/1 Takuapa Road, approximately 100 meters from the crossroad with Ratsada Road. The restaurant is open from 2:00 pm to 11:45 pm, closed on Wednesdays.
