Reviewed September 9, 2011

Being real foodies, we dined at several restaurants in Airlie Beach. We arrived at the Waters Edge Resort and walked up the stairs and were taken away by the amazing views and our surrounds. We said to ourselves Wow what a view, romantic and intimate, we just loved it. The food was delicious from start to finish. Service was also lovely. Why the poor score on atmosphere and overall experience? Loud music from guests staying in hotel and watching the traffic go through the dining area to get to the lower level pool! Surely something cab be done about this. People that dine at De Javu need not put up with this. A call to reception went to no avail. Please close off the gates and make pool guests go around out of respect for diners and restauranteur!

“Romantic, excellent food, great service"”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

We have dined at Deja Vu a few times and have never been disappointed. Wonderful ambience (especially around the pool), great food and beautiful desserts. Especially the choc souffle. Plan ahead and make a reservation as this restaurant is often fully booked on weekends.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

Had a very good experience at this restaurant, service was slow given it was not a busy night.

Ordered the vegetable Indian meal, and workmans steak. Both very enjoyable meals, expensive but then again nothing is cheap in airlie beach during tourist season.

Cocktails were pleasant, overall an expensive meal but enjoyable

“Great view!”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

This restaurant has an absolutely breathtaking view! So romantic! My husband and I ate here for Valentines Day this year. I had to rate it a three because although the service and most of our food was great, our crab entree had gone bad. It tasted of ammonium, which is a sign the shellfish have gone rancid. I hate leaving negative reviews, I would even give the place another chance. I am sure it was just an off night as everything else was beautiful!
