When ordering the young lad behind bar had his trousers half way down his legs kept seeing his underwear (not very pleasant to see when ur about to eat or professional.. They started making one of our hot drinks then forgot about it. Got 2 of our Drinks brought over then someone else brought same 2 drinks over again. We ordered a side dish which was actually put onto someone elses main meal. Bread roll missing. Tired ro give us meal we hadnt ordered..When we asked for salad cream which 2 people asked for only one small sache given to share.. I asked a waitress for a comment/complaint card was told they don't have one and didn't even bother to ask what the problem was...definatley over priced for the amount / quality of food served...would never ever go there again

Sadly this experience was not good. My wife ordered a bacon sandwich expecting a freshly grilled rasher or two. Instead the waitress over done it in the microwave leaving it tasteless. There was no asking if it was ok. Will not go again.

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!!

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!

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.
