Good food good value

Went here in July, had the set menu which was really good. Would definatly eat here again. Staff were attentive and there was a really relaxed atmosphere. Not five star but with out doubt worth a visit and great quality food for the money.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and it is just lovely, the menu is interesting and there are always tasty specials on offer It is only small, but the service is good. It feels like a family run affair, but I could be wrong!! We always book as it is very popular. I visited with my... More

We had a meal here on 18 July whilst visiting the Lakes for a weekend anniversary break. We booked last minute and couldnt get in until 9.00 pm which was a little late but so glad that we went. The food was amazing, starter and main, couldnt manage a dessert. Everything was so fresh and tasty. The staff were extremely... More

We stopped for Lunch on our way through Kendal and stumbled across Deja Vu.. What a great find! We were greeted warmly by the waiter who sat us down. We took advantage of the 3 course £9.95 lunch menu and were blown away with how exceptional the food was and the value for money. We had the soup and a... More

Having read the positive reviews on TripAdvisor we visited Deja Vu and took advantage of the early evening meal deal (3 course meal for £17.95, offered before 7.00 pm midweek). The food was Excellent with a full choice from the main menu (small supplements on some choices), the service was efficient (the restaurant was full at the time) and staff... More

We held our wedding meal here last week- (it's just over the road from the registry office). The food was amazing, even more so when you consider they were serving 40 people at once and all off their usual menu (we ordered in advance) The wine was delicious and the service excellent. The staff were all so helpful and seemingly... More

Having eaten here before we had to book a table again and the food from the £17.95 three course menu did not disappoint. Fantastic food and excellent service, friendly staff too make for a great evening meal, you will be better to book as this is a popular place to eat and has to be highly recommended

We were really looking forward to visit this restaurant as we heard so many great things about the place. But what a shame we went there with my partner on Monday night 20.20 to be precise only to be told by the manager that we can't have dinner anymore ( restaurant was half full). So we asked him what time... More
