AFTER 18 months trading as a fine dining establishment, Rendezvous at C.ex Coffs will end restaurant trade on Friday and Saturday nights from January 8 next year.
The decision to cease dinner trade was made last week by the C.ex Group board of directors.
The venue will re-open as a private dining room catering for group bookings of 20 or more guests, as well as corporate events and weddings.
“Our Rendezvous staff have done an amazing job of showcasing all that is ‘fine dining’ to the Coffs Coast, however, it simply was not supported enough by community members and we could not continue to operate dinner trade with the low level of patron support,” said C.ex Coffs chief executive John Rafferty.
Rendezvous would continue to offer traditional high tea every Saturday and seasonal degustation dinners, in addition to the private catering service.
“The high-level of service and cuisine presented to guests will remain our number one priority for our Rendezvous team in this new endeavour,” he said.
