We ate dinner here and cannot fault the service or food we received. The host was fantastic and attentive. Food was delicious! Nor pretentious at all. Very comfortable and welcoming

Chez Max is situated away from the pretentiousness of the champagne houses over the tracks and over the river. As you approach you are first struck by their flashing neon champagne bottle something that would normally have me nervous to proceed further. However it was late we were hungry and it came well recommended. Upon stepping in, though, we realised... More

We chose based on trip advisor reviews. We didn't want somewhere too 'posh', preferring a great experience instead. Max is a wonderful host. He kept us entertained and even provided me some information on Epernay. We ordered a la carte and had a steak tartar, house speciality. This is made at the table with a commentary so you can create... More

I booked this restaurant but then became a little worried about the menu choice. I needn't have worried. There is something for everyone and a good selection of prices . The cheapest set menu is excellant. I went for the steak tartare however and it was indeed very tasty indeed . The host was very friendly and welcoming .

Food was great and the service was fun, relaxed, and spot on. It's a bit out of the main tourist part of the city, but definitely worth seeking out.

We were told to eat here by some travellers we met. The food was lovely but the experience was made special by the owners of the restaurant. Very friendly, chatty people. Worth the visit.

! only way I found this restaurant was via Tripadvisor.... Yes, from the outside you would perhaps think the packaging is not pretty but I asure you the content was excellent! The owner welcomes you warmly, along with the rest of the family, the atmosphere was cosy and friendly and the menu you were spoilt for choice. A truly wonderful... More

First time here having been to all the others in Epernay and for a traditional French experience; this is THE best. The owner greets you on arrival and very professionally puts you at ease and makes you welcome. The menu choice is extremely well thought out as there's something for the most difficult and easy to please. My wife had... More
