Description: If you enjoy European sidewalk cafés and fine continental cuisine, this award-winning eatery evoking Old Vienna at its heyday is sure to charm you. A longtime Vallarta favorite, Austrian owner Andreas Rupprechter named the place in honor of fellow countryman, Mexico’s former emperor. And Maximilian himself would have loved dining here, perhaps, choosing hearty comfort food like Wienerschnitzel with potatoes and Austrian salad. Or delving into gourmet renditions of contemporary European fare, like Duo of duck breast and duck confit with Spätzle, mushrooms and sugar snap peas. And while the menu is constantly being tweaked, it’s nice knowing that some things don’t change, and for a dozen of years we’ve been able to count on enjoying our favorite plates here. So whether dining al fresco with unparalleled people watching, or in an intimate, air-conditioned, Old World milieu, when a fabulous meal or just a perfect pastry and a special coffee is what you crave, this is the place to be.

Get anything - you can't go wrong. We had escargot, onion soup, chicken and the classic weinerschnetxel - incredible.

Have been enjoying our visits to the Kaiser Maxmilian restaurant for over 18 years. They have consistently maintained very high standards for quality of food preparation and service. The atmosphere and decor add to the dining experience and the owner/host always makes us feel very welcome.

We go to Puerto Vallarta at least once and often twice per year and enjoy the exceptional cuisine available there. I don't know how we happened to skip this restaurant on previous visits. It is small but well located and the staff is exceptionally attentive. It is good solid food though perhaps overly decorated with folliage and I plan to... More

Great food, great service. White table cloths and supper Martinis. I like to eat inside away from the steet and all the passing salesmen Foi Gra, Duck breast and San Blas shrimp are some of my favorites

We went to this venerable PV restaurant for the first time, hoping to enjoy a memorable meal. We were pleasantly greeted and seated, but the dining room was overcrowded and waiters kept bumping into two of the three of us, without apology. The ravioli with fennel appetizer was delicious, as was the onion soup, although they were served to the... More

This is by far my most favorite breakfast venue in Puerto Vallarta. I can take only so many days of huevos rancheros, and I need a pancake or crepe fix. Served with fresh berries and lean streaky bacon and fresh OJ and super coffee, this is just a wonderful way to start the day before heading to the beach. Sitting... More

While it took a fair amount of effort to get out to this restaurant, it was well worth the time! By far it was the best meal we had on our Mexico holiday. I admit this isnt exactly Mexican cuisine, but after weeks of travel eating Mexican mole and cheese...I was most appreciative of my meal here. We were seated... More
