About Cathay Rendezvous
Established in 1986 by Wong's family, Cathay Rendezvous is the longest established Chinese Restaurant in Bristol. A Bristol institution which has been copied and imitated by others but there is only one Cathay Rendezvous.
Within the elegant façade, the restaurant offers spacious and flexible air-conditioned rooms on two levels. Licensed for 150 people, we can cater for parties and events of all sizes.
Came here for a birthday treat, was not disappointed, probably the best Chinese meal I’ve ever had, plus very good service, thank you very much to the staff
Perfect for family dinner.
Really lovely food. Had a fabulous evening.
Staff were friendly and helpful
Excellent food amazing service very helpful polite would & have recommended several times
Poor service, left with dirty plates from starters, long wait for main course main dishes were going cold waiting for the egg fried rice to be served, this came eventually after call the waiter over. At no time were we asked if the meal was satisfactory
Fantastic evening. I requested a round table for the group and that’s what I got. They called to confirm my online reservation. Lovely venue. Very welcoming and good service. Amazing food and nice selection of drinks. Highly recommend
Absolutely delicious - friendly staff who made us feel welcome throughout our meal. The food was cooked to perfection and didn’t taste greasy like you get in takeaways. There was so many choices but opted for a share starter which contains bbq ribs, sesame prawn toast, satay chicken and vegetable spring rolls. As this was our first time we weren’t sure on portion sizes but let’s just say we won’t be ordering rice as well as noodles - there was plenty. I can’t wait to go back and will take the kids next time as there were plenty of families arriving. Drinks were a bit expensive but that’s what you get in quality restaurants.
Great location, service and food. A good evening was had by all.
Such a terrific place for veggies. I think my soul actually tried to leave my body and ascend to the heavens when I tried their mock duck pancakes with divine plum sauce. When they say 'full portion' they mean it - it was a very generous helping! So delicious. Their vegetable gyoza was very tasty, probably the best I've ever had. Only downside is I wanted more. Staff are smart, polite and provide prompt service despite how busy it was on a Saturday night. Definitely a firm favourite that I will return to.
I worked in this building when it was The Careers Office in the early 1970s and really enjoyed coming back and seeing what it is like now before we went to the theatre. Lovely to see this beautiful old building being looked after so well- and serving lovely food too. Thank you
Shame we had to keep calling the waiter over to be served but other than that excellent food and lots of it!
Great quality and amazing flavours. Attentive and thoughtful staff. A fabulous experience all round!
Excellent team of staff serving us. Food excellent and well presented. We came at a quite time intentionally but restaurant gradually become busier. Not hurried and plenty of time between each course. Would highly recommend Cathay Rendezvous
Generous portions, lovely staff
Great food and excellent service as always.
I booked the Cathay Rendevous weeks in advance for my 40th wedding a anniversary. We were a party of 7 adults and one child. We were staying in Bristol for 2 nights travelling up from Cornwall. After we were shown to our table we were handed menus, no interaction was offered by the waiter or any enquiries a stop if required a high chair for our grandchild. After waiting 40 minutes for someone to come and ask we if would like a drink or to take our order one of our party went to ask if someone would come to attend us. Another large party who arrived after us were already being served their food and we had not even had our order taken it was as iff we had been forgotten altogether. When we finally got our starters they all came out separately some of us finished eating before others arrived. My husband has his starter forgotten altogether and had to eat it after we had all finished. Again this was after we advised staff that a starter was missing. We had a lengthy conversation with the waitress who took our order about how much rice to order for 7 people but the rice was not brought to us and the second waitress advised us it was not on the order nor the sweet and sour sauce we had ordered. One of our party heard arguing from the kitchen when he went to chase the missing starter. No body attended us during our meal to ask for more drinks or if everything was ok must the normal sort of thing you would expect. Most of the staff seemed very sullen and there was no interaction with us. We had to beckon staff over if e required another drink. I had been really looking forward to this meal as the reviews were so good on trip advisor but was bitterly disappointed. It spoiled what should have been a special occasion. To have a Service charge added automatically just added insult to injury. This is the worse dining experience I have ever had.
Brilliant Meal. Would recommed to anyone looking for a nice chinese resturant
Noodles served a little later than the main meals
First time I have been here when the buffet is being served. Rather than self service you order your starters, mains etc which means you can take your time & minimise wastage. Great food & service as usual.
Service was a little slow but food was very good
Relaxed and comfortable environment.
We loved the Sunday buffet. Great service, generous portions, fabulous variety of food to choose from.
Great place, can't believe I haven't been before.
We booked our table well in advance, however when we arrived our table was taken, so we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Once seated however, both the food and the friendly, attentive service was excellent and gave us a very special evening. Also the musician playing live strings music was really good!
