“Excellent food”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We went here for lunch. It was an excellent menu, catering for people with food intolerances including both gluten and lactose. Service was good. I will definitely go back to Deja Vu.

“Not quite up to par”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Solid food. Wasn't quite as special or delicious as the reviews made out. Guinea fowl quite tough and dry. Drinks brought to table by hand one at a time. Had to remind waitress about the veg for the food. The meal could have been amazing bit just little niggles that knocked off 2 stars. Could have just been a one off.

“Fabulous French food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Deja Vu is a delightful French bistro on Stricklandgate in Kendal. It's a cosy, unpretentious place, with the tables crowded together. The fixed price menu, £17.95 for 3 courses, is really good value. I visited on a Monday night and we managed to get one of the few remaining tables. I usually stick to 2 courses and skip dessert but the fixed price deal seemed too good to miss. The black pudding and poached egg salad was beautifully presented and the salad leaves had a great dressing. My main course of steak and veg kebabs was really tasty but the star of the show was the poached pear and apple sorbet. It was absolutely fantastic. I'd recommend Deja Vu to anyone visiting Kendal.

“Fabulous food at sensible prices”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Staying at the Premier Inn, 606 feet away according to Tripadvisor, this restaurant was too good to miss.
Thank goodness we listened to other reviewers. The menu was extensive and varied and with 3 courses for £17.95, what's not to like. No wonder it was full on a Sunday evening.
Make sure you book before you leave home like we did. You won't regret it.

Had a lovely three course meal here. The menu is really extensive with loads of tasty choices and the vanilla creme brûlée was divine!
