Myself and some friends enjoyed our lunch here. The menu was varied, the prices were good and the portions were generous. We will definitely go back at some point. My favourite was the jalapeno and macaroni cheese balls.

First time having lunch there. Really enjoyed the halloumi flat bread with spinach, tomato and onion. Planning to go back for an evening and three courses. Impressed.

We hired Legend Deli out to sit 21 people for a birthday party. 20 were eating, 1 wasn't. We provided our food orders in advance of the evening, 3 courses from a great set menu, at only £30 per head. The staff were very accommodating and were able to fit us all in to their dining room area. The food... More

Myself and my partner visited here last weekend. We were warmly greeted upon entering and the staff was extremely attentive. I was surprised at the variation of food available and the value of the dishes. When our food arrived it was more than enough. Very big portions. We left full and very happy. Would definitely visit here again.

The Legenddeli Restaurant is a tiny backstreet bistro/cafe with a huge passion for food, having featured in the newspapers, radio and on TV, catered for Jamie oliver, jimmy, star guests and the crew on the set of the Friday night feast show. Legend deli has a huge emphasis on making everything from scratch with pure ingredients and zero preservatives or additives. The Legenddeli restaurant serves brunch and lunch everyday and a secret dinner menu on Friday and Saturday nights (booking is highly recommended) Chef jay and his partner jojo provide an attentive service and perfectly prepared restaurant dishes and desserts every single day and also offer a very, very popular brunch/lunch menu that is different to anything in south Essex. Basically if you fancy something different...try legenddeli. Give us a call for evening reservations or large private party bookings for any night of the week or visit our Facebook page at legend deli south end on sea for more of an insight. P.S WE ARE A B.Y.O RESTAURANT....PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR OWN WINE OR BEER.
