“A pleasant suprise”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We used to eat here many years ago and it was quite a good standard but after a time there appeared to be a change of owner/management/staff and it went downhill. That was long ago.
After many years we decided to try another lunch there. This was on Wednesday 18th of September. It had changed quite a bit so we wondered what was going to happen. We were greeted by some very pleasant staff, and although it was no longer waitress service and you had to pay for the food up-front, we were not disappointed. We had ordered the steak pie and it was excellent. It was all piping hot with a very good flavour, and the cost was very reasonable for the area. A very pleasant experience. We travel from London and Essex and used to eat before we got to Eastbourne. I know where we will be eating when we next visit Eastbourne.
You can tell a lot by the amount of people in the restaurant. Get there early!!

“Great lunch! Fast service, nice and easy”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

I went in on Thursday 29th August with my daughter at peak lunch time. We were served quickly and didn't wait too long for our food - this was great as she can be restless when waiting.
We will definitely being going back there when in town for honest tasty food and excellent service!

“One of the good places you rarely find in our days”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Deja Vu is the kind of place a lot of people are always looking for but which you almost never find, because they rarely really exist. I am talking about a restaurant with warm atmosphere, friendly staff who provides fast service and where the food is of solid but excellent quality and the prices are really more than reasonable. If you want to impress somebody with a sophisticated and expensive meal, go somewhere else. But if you are looking for a relaxed lunch with good food, there is no better choice than Deja Vu.
