We use trip advisor to choose restaurants when on holiday and as expected we were very pleased with the good food and service. I have to say the dessert was excellent.

We visited Deja Vu after seeing so many good things about it on here and we were not disappointed. The food was incredible. The young man serving us was so helpful and answered any questions we had. If I lived in Kendal I would be a regular.

Went early doors to Deja Vu with friends who live locally. We had the £17.95 3 course meal. Lovely food at a good price, the wines are a good price too. Excellent service & ambiance. Would definitely go back if in the area.

Lovely bistro. So glad they could fit us in tonight for my husbands birthday. Food was to die for. We can heartily recommend the goats cheese to start . Really good vegetarian options.
