This place is something special. We eat here each time we are in Carvoeiro. The food is sublime, each plate that comes out is thoughtfully put together and the food on the plate is delicious. I couldn't find fault at all.

Now this restaurant is definitely the best in town! Absolutely gorgeous food, beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks. The family run restaurant just gets better and better

Lovely upmarket restaurant with delicious quality food and friendly service. Children very well catered for and we had to go back there for the last night of our holiday.

We have stayed in Carvoeiro many times, but only discovered Maximes last time. We ate there three times, every time was a joy. Wonderful staff and sensationally good food. Nice to have a break from the typical Algarvian cuisine

Don't let the appearance put you off. It is set on the street and is not huge and has quirky nick nacks inside. once you are there it is like stepping back in time to Allo Allo or something similar. The food is out of this world. Really excellent flavours. A mini club sandwich and prawn tempura followed by calves... More

We have been to Carvoeiro a number of times but have not visited this restaurant. Probably because of its location. However, we couldn't have been more wrong. The food was fabulous, I had the liver which was wonderful and my husband had the stroganoff which he loved. The additional extras were great - cauliflower soup and a palette cleanser passion...

We couldn’t get into our first choices of restaurants as they were all fully booked and so we went to Maximes as they had a table free, even though we weren’t sure about the place on first impressions. The décor is very old fashioned and is like being in your granny’s living room. BUT we loved it! The service is... More

Dutch owners with a portuguese/dutch/french melange of cuisine Excellent food and service and reasonable wine list The calves liver was superb. Not a vein in sight and as tender as you could want. Also some interesting covers and the apple sorbet was very intriguing Certainly worth a visit
