Hats off to this gorgeous, lively, fun and off the beaten track feel of a bistro. Yes it's on the tourist map (plus English menus if that helps) but they have not really pandered to it in terms of restyling, relocating more central or messing the place up somehow. It feels local, with local staff and local food and actual... More

What a find, a charming restaurant with excellent food, drink and service. We enjoyed a superb meal at reasonable prices. Frank, the proprietor, makes you feel very welcome and totally looks after you. We will definitely be going back on our next visit!

We ordered the 40 Euro menu and both of us went for the Foie Gras, Sea Bass in champagne sauce, 3 different cheeses and a dessert. I had the Creme Brulee and the Mrs had coffee flavoured ice cream. We had Geoffroy Brut Nature champagne and a local Cumieres Rouge (red wine) during our meal. The Foie Gras itself was... More

Other reviews are right, don't be put off by the neighborhood (semi industrial, near train station), and it is true the facade of the restaurant might give you the wrong idea about the food quality inside! The interior is simple, cosy in a sort of rustic local style. Keep going! You will receive a genuine warm welcome from a "Patron"... More

Don't be afraid, when you first see the front of the restaurant with its blinking neon sign - don't worry about the rustic charme of the late late seventies inside - the only thing that counts is the friendly staff (Frank and his team) and the quality of the food (including the large variety of the offered champagnes) - and...

We had dinner last night at Chez Max and had a very pleasant experience. We booked 1 day in advance for dinner which was wise as several drop ins were turned away. It is advisable to alos book for lunch. The restaurant is easy to find and is a 4 minute easy walk from the train station and directly opposite... More

We were recommended this restaurant on a recent rip to Epernay and were not disappointed. We chose it as it looked less pretentious that some other restaurants we'd been recommended as we were travelling with out young daughter. It is just over the river from Epernay in a rather unattractive road, but turned out to be well worth the trip.... More

Contrary to the welcome British tourists get in many French restaurants, the staff at Chez Max were very welcoming- great but not intrusive service. The 4 course menu was perfect: we had the foie gras and the veal/mushroom to start with gorgeous fresh bread. We all had beef for main course: cooked to perfection with an array of delicious sides...
