Our first visit to Kendal for weekend break. Checked TA and decided on Deja View for Saturday night. Unfortunately owners were off on holiday that day - but we got a cancellation Friday night. I'm always getting into trouble with my other half for taking as much interest in how a restaurant/hotel operates as much as in the food. Restaurant... More

My husband and I went for our first meal here in October, I had wanted to go for a while as every time I drove or walked passed the restaurant I could always smell beautiful cooking and I was not disappointed the food was plentiful and delicious, the staff were polite and lovely. I would and have been back .

Small and cosy so best to book. Varied menu. Excellent desserts!!! I ate the assiette which was preceded by the risotto which was full of fish and prawns.

Really good food , beautifully presented and in a great atmosphere. The place is small and so you need to book but plenty of room at the tables and the service is just right. Great choice.

You can always tell how good a restaurant is when something is not perfect. I very quietly spoke to Anja and the problem was sorted,with no drama or fuss. I had a lovely meal and shared a laugh and a joke.

I asked for a beer and was offered it chilled or room temperature - it took a while for it to sink in but eventually I realised there is a real sense of caring about what they do and how they do it. Food was first rate and matched by the service (even had a third course which is very... More

Reasonable prices and fantastic French food and wines. Lovely atmosphere and great staff, comfortable being there alone too but clearly a great spot for lovers...
