Four of us went for an early evening dinner at Deja Vu on a recent Friday. Surprisingly we had the place to ourselves for most of our stay.
Three of us opted for the 'prawns a la planche' starter and they were superb and we had one duck liver pate which came in a compressed golf ball shape but with excellent melba toast.
For mains we had one rack of lamb, and two sea trout from the specials board and one rib eye steak from the a la carte. The lamb and rib eye got positive reviews, albeit the lamb could have been seared off a bit better. Unfortunately, the sea trout was a less positive experience with two small fillet pieces sitting on top of mashed potato, surrounded by mussels sitting in a very diluted sauce seeping into the mash, and topped with a couple of gambas. Mediocre trout at best and the half frozen/cooked fries did not add to the dish - some rethinking required here IMO.
Service however was extremely friendly and efficient. There is a reasonably good wine list & the design of the restaurant is bright and modern. It is a small restaurant and the noise from the kitchen can be a bit overpowering at times, but if they are producing good food I can live with that.
Overall a pleasant experience and we were perhaps a bit unlucky with our choice of mains. I have been here for breakfast on a number of occasions and it really is a good experience. Happy to recommend.
