Lovely food and atmosphere. The food was cooked to a very high standard, we went there as recommended on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! We live near London so will not be going as often as we'd like, but will visit again next time we go to the Lake District.

We were recommended the restaurant by friends and the B & B we were staying at. It is an intimate restaurant with a little buzz. The food was good and the pacing was just right. We were celebrating with friends and never felt rushed.

My husband and teenage daughter went to this restaurant yesterday - I was so disappointed not to be able to join them. Throughout the evening I received text messages from my daughter sending me photographs of their meal - one of her texts read "These are the BEST mussels I have ever had!" This restaurant offer a 3 course meal for £14.95 which can be upgraded for an extra £6 allowing you to eat from the A La Carte menu, which they both did. They tell me it was absolutely fabulous, and that the Host is extremely warm and friendly. We will most definitely go as a family the next time we are in Cumbria.

So we were visiting the lakes for just a couple of days, staying in Kendal. Based on previous reviews from this site we ventured to deja vu and we are very glad we did. It was a saturday night and it was BUSY! Lucky for us another couple had postponed their booking so we got squeezed in .. So if you are planning to visit then book! The food was great (starter amazing), wine delish and a wonderful atmosphere to boot! Highly recomended and very much enjoyed!

We were planning a night in Kendal and looked on TA for a recommended restaurant and Deja Vue read like somewhere worth trying... Was it ever, we'll definitely be making the effort to go there again as soon as we can, even though it's a 120 mile round trip, we'll go for an earlier meal and have one of the best meals either of us have eaten since we were in France, an this was just as good.
The dishes were imaginative and well prepared and presented, the waitress was really charming and couldn't have done more to help. The starters we had were a Camembert parcel and a Tiger Prawn and prawn 'salad', but what a salad!, we both followed with the Lamb & Vegetable Brochettes, again, wonderful, even though my wife wanted her Lamb a little more 'done', this wasn't a problem, for dessert we both had the Assiette with a portion of; a meringue , a chocolate mousse, and a Creme brûlée. Though just writing it so blandly doesn't do it the justice it deserves.
We recommend it to all and hope you enjoy it just as much as we did.
Oh yes! It would make sense to book as it does seem to be a popular place. 'Quelle surprise'.......
Many thanks and especially to your excellent Chef and his staff. In fact THANKS.

Thank Peter M
