I've been coming to this place for many years and the food has always amazing! But upon recent discovery the menu has changed... for the worst! My friends and I would always cycle between having the Chicken Saltimbocca and another chicken dish which was in a kind of brandy cream sauce with ham... Delicious!!! But much to my dismay both...

This restaurant has a long history in Canberra and the food has always been good. We generally don't book a table during the week and have always been able to get one. Lots of choices on the menu - the pasta dish with scallops is just delicious. Friends and family always enjoy what they eat and the staff are friendly!

After reading the reviews I was a bit hesitant to go to Le Rendezvous as we also had a Living Social Voucher. We were met by very friendly staff and were showed to our seats by a lovely waiter who then explained what we were entitled to with the voucher. Our meals came out quickly and were absolutely delicious –... More

We have been eating here when we stay in Canberra for the last 15 years and the food is always delicious and always of the same standard. I had the carbonara which is my favorite dish. The service is friendly and fast. Great for families or just the two of you. You could never be disappointed eating here.

I've been dying to find a nice italian place in Canberra, but this one really didnt cut it. Don't get me wrong, your heart is in the right place, and youve got a good idea!

Had lunch at Le Rendezvous which was set in a small but nice arcade in Manuka, Canberra. The staff were friendly and efficient, easily explaining the specials and the menu for lunch. The pasta tasted fresh ad the sauces full of flavor, although for my taste I added a lot more pepper, maybe a side dish of fresh chilies' would... More

Being relatively new to Canberra, we have used Living Social vouchers to try new restaurants. In addition to giving us the opportunity to try (more cheaply) before we buy (at regular prices), it is a perfect opportunity for businesses to impress first-time diners to their restaurant and guarantee return visits and increased business through positive word of mouth. This is... More

The service was good however I ordered the veal masala and was extremely disappointed there were 3 tiny (bite size) pieces of veal that were difficult to cut and chewy to eat. The vegetables were nice broccoli, carrots and a few slices of mushroom. For 34 Dollars hardly filling. I've eaten better veal In a pub for less than half... More
