The food was tasty, hot, very wide range of choice and most of it gluten free but no compromise on flavour. Service was swift and fun music. A must visit if you are in Kendal.

What a lovely restaurant, with a reasonably priced menu. £17.95 for a 3 course meal- and it is lovely food. We always have the assiette for pudding, so we get to taste 3different desserts. We are locals and this is one of our favourite restaurants!

The 3 courses for 17.95 is great value for money however the food was not great. The steak tasted and looked like Chinese beef that was rubbery. I didn't enjoy it. Staff were friendly and approachable though.

I would visit this Bistro again but I'd probably choose something different to eat. There was nothing wrong with the quality of the food I chose but just not to my taste. It's great to see a restaurant go to so much trouble as to label what is and isn't gluten free and most of their menu is. Which makes... More

We tend to pop in to Deja Vu for lunch when we are shopping in Kendal. We must have dined here more than 20 times over the last few years and always have good service and excellent food. There is an excellent vegetarian selection alongside fish and local meat options. House wine is good value!

Went to deja vu on Thursday night after a long day visiting Windermere and Bowness.Although the bistro was quite busy we were seated immediately and looked after by the waitress. The service and food were excellent as was the price,and it was the perfect end to a two night stay in Kendal.
