SquareMeal Review of
An odd-looking restaurant, Bellevue Rendezvous seems more warehouse than gourmet destination from the outside. Indoors, however, the sound & sight of happy diners is heart-warming. The place is run by a French couple: he, a man who knows his onions, in the kitchen; she, a woman who knows her customers, front of house. Their hospitality is appreciated by all. Choose either from the set menu (£20/£24 for two/three courses) or go à la carte & order smoked duck with celeriac remoulade, for instance, or orange & beetroot salad with walnuts, followed by confit of duck with lentils or a proper coq au vin served with gratin dauphinoise. Finish with Pablo’s ‘fantastic’ gateau, or a top-class almond tart. The relaxed atmosphere is helped by a well-priced French-centred wine list.
