Description: Open only for dinner, starting at 6pm. Adventurous food in a Cosmopolitan setting, located in the heart of Amsterdam's most beautiful canal area. MAX is a place to explore a new International cuisine with the additional flavours of MamaMax' traditional Indonesian home cooking. Fresh and sparkling spiced. Creative but no nonsens food. Forget the expectation of an old fashion Indonesian restaurant or these days trendy Michellin star copy of deconstructive foam and lines attractions on your plate but enjoy simply our well cooked food, nice setting and friendly service. MAX has a short uncomplicated interesting wine list, excellence wines for reasonable prices. Seperate room for function for groups.

I have thought long and hard about reviewing this Restaurant, as we had such a lovely meal, great choices, well presented and the place was really cool with a great vibe. However, I feel I have to warn people that if you complain over an issue and the Owner comes over, don't expect him to treat you with respect as... More

The venue is very nice, not too big so quite intimate. The food was Indonesian style and very tasty (we didn't have the rice tafel). A good wine selection & the staff were efficient & friendly. I would go again.

Had Rice Table at Restaurant Max with another couple in November, 2014. Portions were very small, food was mediocre,, and price was much too high for what we got. For $45 Euros each (that did include beer) we expected more than thimble size portions of food that wasn't really all that good. When desert was brought, we thought they were... More

Weekend in Amsterdam, visited Max on a Saturday night, after reading reviews here on Tripadvisor. It was a short walk from where we were staying in Jordaan. The restaurant had a very good vibe, buzzy, full, a cool atmosphere, the setting, with the lights gave it a very good ambiance also. The staff very polite, friendly, if not a little... More

Far from the noisy and busy streets of Amsterdam but still with a great location. The staff was really helpful, even in taking the time to prepare cocktails for us when they told us before only wine or beer was served at that time because it was late at night. Great atmosphere inside the restaurant, making it suitable for a... More

We went here for a birthday dinner after reading the good reviews on TA. While the ambiance was very romantic, perfect for date nights, the food was mediocre at best. There was the tiniest bit of Indonesian inspiration. Calling it fusion is an overstatement. We were very disappointed by the dishes. For that price, there are many better restaurants in... More

We had a large party and arrived a bit late but Max was extremely accommodating. Table was available immediately and the staff was truly outstanding and attentive. Our party shared a sampling of many dishes and rice offerings. Perfect blend of spices and flavors.
