We had gone to this restaurant on my recommendation as I had been around 12 years previous and wanted to see if it was as good as it was then. we were with Mr Grumpy and unfortunately it was on the Black & White festival night and it was heaving with extra tables out onto the street. I could not... read more

We stopped here for an evening meal after seeing the menu of the day, 3 courses for €20 advertised, it was lovely inside the restaurant with a stylish decor, the choices on the menu were lovely and excellent wine, the service, was friendly but not overbearing , overall a place I would recommend.

They have chosen a new menu and experience here catering for the masses. Whilst the food and service is still good it's not as special as it has been for the last ten years. Still worth a visit and enjoyable but not as good as in previous years

I'm going to keep this review very simple..... go to Maximes. THE FOOD IS FANTASTIC! Great staff very polite even to the point when I had my grumpy head on due to the wait for our food......this was no fault of theirs due to a festival being on and the whole of cavoiero being packed. By the way.....I did apologise... More

We tried to have dinner at a couple restaurants before we stumbled across Maxime, but they were either full, or.. just didn't acknowledge us waiting there, but after the experience we had here I'm very glad we ended up here. The staff were really incredibly sweet and the food was amazing, and really reasonably priced. It was hard to decide... More

It is several years since I visited Carvoeiro and I was looking forward to revisiting Maximes. However, this once excellent restaurant seems to have 'dumbed down'. My duck was beautifully cooked but was served with a minute amount of overlooked broccoli. Then a plate of frozen chips was placed on the table for the four of us to share along... More

The food is amazing, there are vegetarian menu and the environment is very nice. The day that we were there was busy and the service took longer than we expected, but just this, because everything was really good!

You could easily miss this restaurant, with its small front on the main street but its definitely worth a visit. Tasty food and good service.

This little restaurant has just had a makeover and a menu change but it is still a delight to go to the lady waiter is delightful and the food is a bit different from the usual fare in Portugal well worth a visit

Sad to say but we didn't enjoy the food that much and the service wasn't very good. We have been going to Maxime's for years, ever since it opened. John & Francine have completely refurbished the place and it does look good, very modern, pleasant surroundings. Something has been lost, Francine who is a fantastic chef has it seems hung... More
