First visit here. Had early bird offer. Food was nicely presented. Wholesome and very good value. Wasn't keen on my main which was duck, however feel that was more personal preference than anything. Would like to return and try something different. Would definitely return and also recommend highly !!

Saw the restaurant by chance. Tried it once, it was so good, we decided to go back a second time. Food was tasty, good value for money, service excellent and not a long wait for food even tho restaurant was busy. A must visit if in Kendal!

I am truly sorry to have to do this, as I detest moaning trip advisor reviews personally, however. I do feel that something should be said so that future customers/owners etc are alerted. We were really looking forward to dining here, due to other fabulous reviews, however I am afraid to say that for us, Deja vu did not live... More

Whilst spending a pleasant weekend with family who live in Kendal we were taken to Deja Vu. We (four of us) enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours enjoying the atmosphere, food and attentive service

We loved the place. Small restaurant, lovely looked after. The food was delicious. We had 3 starters: Soup of the day, tomato and pepper. Very tasty. Camembert pastry parcel. Nice one. Sautéed Tiger prawns. Really nicely made. Highly recommended.

My wife and I came across this restaurant by Great Reviews on TripAdvisor and managed to walk in and get a table with no issues. The atmosphere was really pleasant and relaxed and the food was extremely good.

Picked this restaurant because of the great reviews from Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Its a small, elegant english bistro with a french twist. Each course was delicious. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Lovely atmosphere, will definitely be going back when visiting Kendal again.
