Cathay Rendezvous


Situated in King Street, which dates back to 1650, our impressive building was designed in 1738 as the first purpose-built library in England. Within its elegant façade, the restaurant offers spacious and flexible air-conditioned rooms on two levels. Licensed for 200 people, we can cater for parties and events of all sizes.

Cathay Rendezvous offers diners a unique experience in oriental cuisine that spans the main gastronomic regions of China, cooked and presented in truly authentic style.

Established in 1986, Cathay Rendezvous is still the leading Chinese restaurant in Bristol flavoured by local and National Celebrities. A Bristol institution which has been copied and imitated by others but there is only one Cathay Rendezvous.

Special live Guzheng performance every Thursday throughout December:
Love live music? Interested in Chinese music? Visit Cathay Rendezvous every Thursday from 7.00pm - 10.00pm.
The Guzheng (Chinese: 古箏), also known as the Chinese zither, is a Chinese plucked string instrument with a more than 2,500-year history.

    The building is wonderful but the food is a little "chinese style" 1980. Not exciting. The fresh flowers on the table - lovely touch and the decor is superb. BUT - apart from the food being rather... Read full review
