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.

Quiet Sunday evening, we were warmly welcomed, given a choice of tables. Fantastic service, not rushed, very friendly. The menu is just the right size, very good selection and catering for different dietary needs. Menu is clearly tagged for vegetarian /gluten free etc. We enjoyed all our food which was freshly prepared and mostly, locally sourced. I had a new... More
