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

When you walk into a restaurant and ask for a table and are greeted with " yes of course, it'll be a pleasure " you know it's going to be a good evening. We had been here 5 years before and so were very pleased to find it again! The owner, Max? Was extremely pleasant and efficient. We were shown... More

We made a reservation in advance, which was neccessary because the restaurant was fully booked. The staff was very nice and some of them could help us translate the menu to English. Three of us ate fish, and one ate meat. We were all very pleased with the food we ordered. We would all love to come back!

We recently went to Chez Max in Epernay based on the Tripadvisor reviews. As discussed, we asked that our table for 10 be on the ground floor so we could be served by Franck the owner. Everyone had an excellent meal. Franck had a deep knowledge of the Champagnes on his list and we were definitely rewarded by taking his... More

Our hotel booked us in here as a typical restaurant for the champagne region. We were a little concerned as from outside it looked shabby, there was a hideous orange curtain around the door also off putting. Once round this we were greeted very warmly by the owner who was so very enthusiastic and helpful. The waitress spoke no English... More

Because the reviews for this place are so good, we had very high expectations, but at the end I was a bit disappointed: The menu is good, nice variety and different menu formulas: we took a 4 course for 40 euros. Typical French cuisine, with cream sauces, nice taste. The cheese platter was ok, but have definitely had better. The... More

We had a group of 6 of us visit Chez-max. We arrived early and entered to a warm greeting. The main man then talked us through the menu and allowed us to ask questions without getting impatient. When the food arrived it was delicious and authentic - great value for money also as it was a 4 course meal for... More

We arrived slightly early but were greater warmly by the owner himself and seated at our table were he took us through the menu. The food was delicious and everything you would expect of a restaurant favoured by the locals themselves
