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...

Wow. We just finished dinner at Chez Max with Frank and his amazing team. I have never had friendlier, more authentic service since moving to France. My party of two couples was hungry but poorly prepared for dinner after several nearby cellar tours and champagne tastings. We walked aimlessly around the center of town and nothing stuck out. We had... More

Just loved the hospitality, Max made us feel so welcome. Food and wine were excellent and great value compared to some of the up market restaurants we'd eaten in during our holiday.. Would highly recommend this place..

We went on the recommendation of where we were staying and they were so right. This is a great restaurant with very good food and tremendous atmosphere mainly provided by Max. Without his wife on, Max ran up and down the stairs all night to make sure that everyone got exactly what they wanted. And we did. There are 3... More

This was a great mom & pop place where the owner/chef was very helpful with the menus, and very welcoming. The appearance and decor were not what you'd expect (as pointed out by other reviewers), but hey, this is France. We had pork medallions that were very good, as were the other courses, and the prices very reasonable. I would... More

As other reviewers have commented do not be put off by exterior or location. Can get busy so booking may be necessary. Service was fast and furious and restaurant has a lively atmosphere. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Something for everyone. Good wine list which was not outrageously priced. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone... More

We ate at Chez Max on a Saturday evening. Do not be put off by the exterior or area, inside it is lovely. The staff are friendly and attentive and sympathetic to our lack of French, something rare we discovered as we travelled around the country! The food was a culinary adventure and every course was perfect. I could not... More
