Had a 3 course meal early evening mid week when the restaurant was quiet. As a result the service was as you would expect, very good. I can imagine the atmosphere to be far more lively later in the evening. As for the food - all 3 courses were excellent.

My wife and I eat at Deja Vu every couple of months and we have yet to have a meal that did not surpass our expectations. We typically order two starters, two main courses, vegetables, french fries, a bottle of wine and coffees. The food and service are always exceptionally good. Do NOT believe other reviewers who complain about the... More

I have visited this restaurant many times over the past year since buying a holiday lodge nearby. It is always the top of my 'must eat there' places. There is always a fantastic choice, well cooked, beautifully presented,variety of different flavours and textures.The special deal offered before 7.15pm is worth considering. I even asked the owner if he would open... More

Myself and my boyfriend visited here at the end of August after seeing reviews on here and we were very pleased. The food is excellent, from starter to desert. The only downside was the service, while the staff were not rude they were not overly friendly or welcoming. However, this would not put us off visiting again.

This served some of the tastiest food I've had in ages, can't understand the negative reviews! We arrived at 6pm without a booking as it only opens about then but it did so it get busier later. Service is super quick (my dining companion thought a little too quick but I didn't feel rushed) and helpful. We took advantage of... More

We visited Deja Vu on a Sunday evening at about 6,30pm. We had a lovely three course meal, which was very good value. There was lots of choice, my starter was was Salad 'Deja Vu' which was lovely. We had had a nice bottle of wine with our meals - all for under £60.00! The service was excellent. Would definitely... More

The food here never fails to disappoint and the 3 course deal is fantastic. If you are going a-la-carte, however, it is a little on the pricey side. All in all though well worth a visit!

I have visited this restaurant 3 times. The first was fine but nothing special and the second was disappointing: both main courses were overdone, in one case burnt. I decided to give it another try and unfortunately it will be my last visit to Deja Vu. I like the concept of an interesting, set priced three course meal. However, the... More
