“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

You can easily have 3 courses without having to pay any supplements. There are some great choices and specials menu. 16 main courses with only 6 having a supplement. We have paid a lot more than £17.95 for one course let alone 3!

I had black pudding salad topped with a poached egg, pork fillet (supp £4) wrapped in pancetta, with green beans & potatoes, 2 huge scoops of sorbet. My daughter had Camembert in brick pastry with salad, duck and the assiette of desserts.

It was really tasty, good music, just the right amount of time between courses. We will return!

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We had a fabulous meal here on Sunday. Sad we only found it on our last night as previous dining attempts were a bit of a let down in Kendal. However, please give Deja Vu a try you will not be disappointed.

“A bit disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We tried Deja Vu on recommendation and were somewhat disappointed with the outcome.
The venue is small and therefore feels claustrophobic and hot when busy as it was the evening we visited. If there was aircon it was not functioning.
The food was OK but just that. In view of the reasonably limited menu we expected better.
The service was very good but let down by the mediocre food.
We would probably give it another try if we were in the locality again but not go out of way to do so.

“Dinner at Deja-Vu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Came here with friends to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Excellent service, friendly and relaxed but efficient. Food was delicious throughout, but particularly enjoyed poached pears with green apple sorbet. Will certainly return when visiting Kendal again. Good value.

“Lucky Chance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

The new tapas bar - next door and empty at 630 on a Monday night - turned us away. So we came here - and how pleased we were! Smashing staff, early bird prices, and excellent food. Good choice from both menus ( mix and match with some supplements ) and a reasonable bottle of wine. I had the beef skewers for my main course - lovely, hubby had sausage cassoulet but the puddings stole the show. Him indoors choosing the trio (assiette) - delightful- and I had raspberry mess. A thoroughly nice evening and would return gladly. And for info - mistake by the tapas bar as we were in and out by 750pm, so they lost out.
