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

The service was really good, it surpassed our expectations and the average service quality in the area! The restaurant offers many types of food, including four great vegetarian options that will satisfy anyone! The price is adequate according to the service and food quality!

We first visited Maxime's last year and it was our favourite restaurant so were really looking forward to visiting again this year, and we were not disappointed. The menu is not vast, but there is something for everyone. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The steaks were cooked to perfection. We were a little disappointed that the curried... More

We visited with friends who live in Carvoeiro and treated them to a meal. When we'd eaten here before we all said how great the food was, but this time the menu was limited - no specials - compared to previous visits. What we did have was good enough, but with so many quality restaurants now in Carvoeiro I feel... More

Starter ok, main (fillet) not cooked even so disappointing. Friendly staff, albeit this did not make up go the food which was very much average. Do not plan to visit gain, so perhaps I am a little generous,
