Great food, great value

Three friends and I found this place by chance. We were drawn to it by the wonderful smell wafting out of the door. Fortunately they had one table free. We all had starters. I had a Camembert parcel as did one of the others and the other two had the mixed starter. All were very tasty and well... read more

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

Met with two friends from Birmingham for a long awaited reunion. Couldn't have chosen a better venue, two of us had dined at Deja Vu before and found the food and service up to the excellent standard we'd experienced before. Our other friend was delighted with her meal - faultless, we will be back.

This a lovely little restaurant situated in Kendal town. Excellent menus, a specials which consists of a 3 course meal for £17.95 or an a la carte. I had the local crab meat starter and then fresh tuna from the specials and I couldn't fault it. My husband and I visited with our niece and her husband, this was a... More

Me and my freinds couldn't rate this place enough. We had been on holiday and had some not so good meals but this restaurant made up for all of them. All the food was gorgeous, there were 6 of us and not one complaint. There as a nice atmosphere and our waitress ( sorry didn't get name) was really freindly... More

From the warm welcome to the great choice on offer, this is gem of a find. The staff pay attention to every detail, without being over the top, to ensure a great experience. It is rare to find such a good wine selection, with great recommendation from the staff. A destination to aim for when you are in the Lakes.

visited the lakes with my best friend as I used to live there, my two close friends really wanted to take us so we had to go. Had a gorgeous camembert starter that was huge, and for main had a beautiful rich aubergine dish (I love aubergine!) which, again, was a fair size! The wine recommendations where perfect and the...

We wanted to celebrate a birthday without paying an enormous amount of money and this is just the place. There was only one member of staff in the restaurant as it was a Monday evening but there were quite a few diners. However the service was efficient and the waiter very pleasant. The food was excellent - onglette of beef... More
