I have dined at this restaurant for the last 7 years and it is one of my favourites. On this occasion I noticed a few changes, firstly the rather large hike in the price of the 3 course meal. Which I dont object to paying if quality and standard reflects this - unfortunetly it does not! I was pleased to... More

We went here for lunch. It was an excellent menu, catering for people with food intolerances including both gluten and lactose. Service was good. I will definitely go back to Deja Vu.

Solid food. Wasn't quite as special or delicious as the reviews made out. Guinea fowl quite tough and dry. Drinks brought to table by hand one at a time. Had to remind waitress about the veg for the food. The meal could have been amazing bit just little niggles that knocked off 2 stars. Could have just been a one... More

Deja Vu is a delightful French bistro on Stricklandgate in Kendal. It's a cosy, unpretentious place, with the tables crowded together. The fixed price menu, £17.95 for 3 courses, is really good value. I visited on a Monday night and we managed to get one of the few remaining tables. I usually stick to 2 courses and skip dessert but... More

Staying at the Premier Inn, 606 feet away according to Tripadvisor, this restaurant was too good to miss. Thank goodness we listened to other reviewers. The menu was extensive and varied and with 3 courses for £17.95, what's not to like. No wonder it was full on a Sunday evening. Make sure you book before you leave home like we... More

Had a lovely three course meal here. The menu is really extensive with loads of tasty choices and the vanilla creme brûlée was divine!

We were a party of four and all of us enjoyed our meal. Each meal was well cooked and just the right size.

This is a really friendly place to eat. The food was nice and the service was very good. They have an early birds offer and most people were having this - by the time we finished there was only 2 other tables left and we were in for 8.15. I think when I go again I would go for this... More

Nice little French restaurant in Kendal. We'd been there few times for dinner and lunch. Food is always fresh and tasty. lunch is cheaper than dinner. We recommend this place for anyone.
