Description: 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.

This is a fantastic find and a true gem!
We went for diner. The menu had a choice of 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 sides and nothing like anything we've seen anywhere in Southend, inspired by street food from around the world.
The food was packed full of flavour and perfectly cooked.
The prices are more than reasonable for the quality of the food.
The chef is friendly and clearly passionate about food and what he is doing. The waitress couldn't do enough to help us, including recommendations on her favourite dishes on the menu.
I can't wait until the next time I visit this place again!
Just don't forget to take your own beverages.

Thank Helen R

Great menu, and gorgeous food. Lovely atmosphere and with outdoor eating space is great for summer lunches or dinners. Prices are brilliant. Kid friendly and such friendly staff and chef J came to chat to us, personal touch. Great service. Food out of this world, tasty, full of flavour and big portions. Thanks Jane xxx

We went here for the first time last week based on great reviews. Had a great meal (so pleased as this is one of the few places that actually serves halloumi) and were impressed with the service and the fact that you could bring your own wine. Will definitely be coming back here and would recommend to others.

Beautiful place. Menu is good & varied. My daughter and I ordered at lunch time, very welcoming. Food was gorgeous, pulled pork is delicious and their home made scotch eggs are fantastic! Best I've ever tasted. Cannot wait to go back and to also try from the dinner menu.

Went here on a Sunday lunchtime and had the miss piggy sandwich...it was sensational for the price (£5) and as a side, some of the best onion rings I've ever had. A true gem
