Expert review of Rendez-Vous
You may not be able to afford a night at the Quisisana hotel but you might be able to manage a course or two at one of its restaurants and, unless you've got deep pockets, it's probably the Rendez-Vous. As well as being the latest, in addition to La Colombaia, it has the added benefit of being right on Via Camerelle so you get some great people-watching opps into the bargain (well, less 'bargain' to be honest, more 'the price you pay for a decent meal in Capri, with great people-watching opps').
The menu is a mix of traditional (borlotti bean soup, Caprese ravioli, spaghetti with clams, and so forth, with a few innovative flourishes), and modern (during the summer months the hotel's Japanese chef prepares fresh sushi). My advice would be to stop by for a light lunch (at an extremely light 30 euros, which includes a glass of wine) and enjoy the view… The Colombaia is secreted within the hotel and is a little more pricey, or an even lighter option could be to take a table at the Quisi bar (also on the Via Camerelle) and nibble on bar snacks that are served with drinks.
The stylish interior is a mix of sophisticated dark wood panelling and chic white leather club chairs set around tables that are laid out for optimum 'watching' opportunities: facing the floor-to-ceiling windows that face onto Via Camerelle. Needless to say, most of your fellow diners are the well-heeled residents of the hotel, along with exhausted shoppers who have maxed out their credit cards and need to take a load off… The best tables are on the terrace.
As you'd expect at a top hotel: it's formal and efficient.
You can't miss the Quisi as you're coming down Via Vittoria Emanuele III; it's on the corner with Via Camerelle and the hotel is bedecked with flags of the nations of the world. The Rendez-Vous can be approached straight off Via Camerelle.
The tasting menu costs 70 euros or so, with wine, you're looking at around 100 euros per person for dinner.
