We had lunch at this place, and I have to say everything on the menu was good. The wait staff was friendly, and they did not rush us which is always nice to enjoy where you are.

The restaurant itself is unprepossessing and not in the centre of town. However the food was stupendous. I have travelled widely in France and only once had better food and that was in a Michelin starred restaurant. The marmite of mushrooms, sweetbread and white pudding was an absolute revelation. It was rich and unctuous. The desserts were marvellous. Too often... More

Our hotel booked this for us, so we had no idea what to expect. Our meal was just brilliant. That mix of French country style, with fresh and top quality ingredients. Our wine was just perfect for the meat dishes. There were lots of French families there as well, which makes it a more authentic eating experience.

Unfortunately it is not possible to give a 'Good' rating on Trip Adviser. Chez Max is definitely good, rather than Average, but compared to other places in Epernay (La Banque and Fines Bulles, for example), I wouldn't say it was Very Good. We didn't have a reservation, which wasn't a problem on a Tuesday night, although the restaurant is clearly... More

Early December 2014, my wife and I had a beautiful dinner at Chez Max. A casual, but elegantly small restaurant was a delight. Each course was well prepared and delicious. The owner (Max?) waited on our table; he was an absolute delight and a willing helper as we navigated the French menu. I chose a Dover Sole that he expertly... More

If you are looking to experience traditional French Cuisine at a reasonable price if you are visiting Epernay, than you need to go no further than Chez Max. We were recommended this quaint restaurant by the staff at the hotel we were staying at, and it proved to be one of those hidden gems you hear about but so rarely... More

Very good restaurant! It fullfilled our high expectations from reading the reviews on tripadvisor. Book in advance because it is often full.

Very cosy restaurant with very friendly staff a little bit ouside Epernay. The food was very tasty and the champagne and wines were also good and not too expensive. We would definitely go back!!
