To the rendezvous

A Cork institution for many years, The Rendezvous is your ‘go to’ for delicious drinks and even better food. Under the expert eye of one of Ireland’s most well-respected chefs, Pat Kiely, The Rendezvous’s offering carefully combines local ingredients with expert craftsmanship. 

Whether you enjoy the perfect pint of stout, a refreshing cocktail or you’re tempted by our choice of locally crafted ales, we have something to satisfy all at The Rendezvous. 

The Rendezvous is the perfect blend of a cosy local with a friendly atmosphere and a laid-back restaurant offering incredible food. Our outdoor space is perfect for those long summer evenings (as rare as they are in Ireland) and we have live music from local acts every weekend. 

The Rendezvous is created to be experienced and our team look forward to welcoming you.
