Do not miss the Muffaletta Sandwich!

I've introduced several people to Max & Irma's AMAZING muffaletta sandwich - spicy meats, cool tomatoes & greens on warm focaccia, I believe it is the perfect sandwich - and many agree with me. Try it you'll like it! Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of their desserts. On different visits... read more

I have eaten here on several occasions and have enjoyed every one prior to this. Tonight the service was slow and the server, while nice, appeared harried. I ordered the dinner salad which was almond-crusted salmon atop Jasmine rice, greens with a blueberry-peach salsa, home-smoked cheese and cashews. My husband had ribs and lemon herb potatoes. Everything tasted fresh, but... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Nelson. The international themed nights are a delight and you need to reserve.

I had the Thai Prawn Pasta and really enjoyed it. Also liked that it came in two sizes (Max or Irma sized). I ordered the Irma size and could actually finish it. My husband had the daily special and found it not as good. He said it had odd, meat-filled spring rolls and an assortment of food that didn't really... More

We tried to relive some great memories with our kids and took them to Max and Irma's... but they did not want a party of 6. It was busy, so we waited for quite awhile before someone came to ask how many in our party and when we told them 6, they told us they did not have room for... More

We stopped here for lunch and we loved it all. Being an ice tea drinker, I was very impressed with their ice tea- it was made from loose tea leaves & had a great flavor.

We had supper here with a friend and it was a nice experience. The live entertainment was really nice and usually I'm not very big on that sorta thing while eating. The food was yummy and portions good. Service was friendly enough but super slow. We had a long wait on everything and tables seated after us were seen to... More
