This little bistro is located on a side street half a block up from Baker Ave, the main downtown street of Nelson. There are plenty of tables indoors and we chose one by the window when we got there at 1115 am (opens at 11 am for lunch) as it was slightly raining. There are a few tables outdoors as... More

This restaurant and meal will go down in our memory as one of the best things about our visit to Nelson. We just happened to look up the street and see it after a day of walking around the town.

Big menu. Good service. Clean restaurant. Decent prices. A bit loud with the open concept dining and fairly open kitchen area. Live music some evenings. Not for anyone with wheat or gluten allergies-there's probably only one or two menu selections without wheat. Great specials. Food baked in a wood-fired oven is the best!

Max & Irma's was suggested to us during our stay in Nelson. It is conveniently located just off Baker Street in a quaint location. Nice atmosphere and good service. We had a pizza and it was very good. Would definitely go back.

Max and Irma's has a great menu, especially the specials printed on the large blackboard - something for everyone. The wood-fired pizza oven produces some great eats.

We had looked forward to returning here to eat since last being there seven years ago, and we were not disappointed. Just as great as the last time there. Service is A plus and food the same

So good and so family friendly, I come here every time I visit Nelson. The mushroom, pork loin, gala apple pizza was fantastic!
