“Not good :(”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

Shockingly bad and overpriced. Normally I would have sent this food back but since we were with my husband's boss I decided to keep quiet, but the food I ordered was practically inedible. I won't be back.

“Sadly disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

We have visited several times but sadly the meal was very ordinary. Our friends had taken us there as a treat and I was embarrassed that I had suggested the venue. We were seated next to the toilet which was not very nice, the reason I do not know as it was hardly crowded. I will not be back - ever.

Waters-Edge-Resort, Owner at Deja Vu Restaurant, responded to this review, October 11, 2011
Thank you for your recent review your comments are appreciated. We are so sorry to hear of your disappointing experience at Deja Vu and wish that your concerns were brought to our attention on the evening so we could have relocated your table and ensured an enjoyable dinner. Tables are generally set under our far Bali hut as part of our dinner layout (particularly when windy or full booked as we were on Saturday evening) however we will take every care in the future that all guests are happy and comfortable if seated in this area. We hope you will consider dining again sometime at Deja Vu

Kind regards

“Delicious”
3 of 5 bubbles 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"”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
