Quiet visit to an Excellent Restaurant

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... read 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!!

The atmosphere in the restaurant is very warm and cosy. Everybody is super friendly and the food is delicious. Prices are reasonable, we each had a different dish and dessert, everything was excellent.

This was one of the truly unforgettable meal experiences on our family (parents with 3 grown children) trip to France. We booked Chez Max after reading the TA reviews and expectations were more than exceeded. We were running a little late for our reservation (coming from M&C) but they were very friendly and told us not to worry. When we... More

First visit to this restaurant, a short walk from the center of Epernay but well worth the stroll! They have a daily menu, very good value for money! The restaurant might seem a bit outdated on the outside as well as the inside - don't hesitate - the food is very good and the cheese plate....Wow! The most popualar dish... More

Visited based on tripadvisor recommendations and was not disappointed. Luckily the host at our guest house was kind enough to book a table for the four of us for later that day as it was very busy. High quality food typical of the region - I ate veal and creme brulee. The cheese course also had a lot of variety... More

The staff are really good, the welcome is warm and cheerful and they try hard. Then the food arrives! I had a really poor starter which was replaced without question with a different recipe. Still not brilliant - scallops in an over creamy sauce. The main course of steak arrived far too will done with a scrap of paper on... More
