The Rendezvous Restaurant & Pub is perfectly placed between the major urban epicentres of Johannesburg in Gauteng and Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. This part of South Africa is the address of Van Reenen’s Pass, which is dubbed the gateway of the provinces of Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, and the Free State as well as to the world-famous Drakensberg Mountain Range.
The Rendezvous Restaurant is more than a century old and has, over the generations, become a popular place in which locals and visitors can meet and enjoy good food and drinks. The ambience is suitably cosy, warm and inviting for those wanting to savour a hearty meal, thirsty visitors needing a cold ale or sports enthusiasts that do not want to miss a big game. As such a sports hotspot, the walls are bedecked with memorabilia and personal items that have been donated by sportsmen over the years.
The menu is varied and extends from breakfasts to lunches and dinner. Popular favourites include the oxtail, burgers, lamb’s liver, roast beef, surf and turf, and mussels. A Sunday carvery is an excellent option for hungry visitors that want traditional roasts and delectable desserts, along with starters and a sherry.
The Rendezvous Restaurant & Pub is fully licensed with a wide array of wines, beers and spirits from which to choose. The wines come from different estates around South Africa, which has earned its place on the global platform for its top-class wines.
There is a pretty garden area that provides diners with a scenic little spot in which to enjoy a comforting cuppa and a slice of delicious cake.
There is no doubt, then, that the Rendezvous Restaurant & Pub is as varied as its clientele and is suited to a range of different palates and occasions.
