During a recent break in Carvoiero we visited Maxime's twice. I think it really is for special occasion dining as the prices are higher than most in that area, but to us it was worth every cent. I think the owners are possibly Belgian or French, since the little touches that make all the difference were there; amuses bouche to... More

This restaurant is a little quirky inside, all sorts of ornaments around the place, lovely table settings so we though we'd give it a try. The menu looked good and after eating a lot of fish over the period of two weeks the Beef Bourginion looked pretty tempting. The service was excellent, wasn't too busy on the night we visited...

I have known this restaurant for a couple of years and have been dining there with pleasure every time I visited Carvoeiro, both for business as for pleasure. The food is of good quality, the menu is being changed every once in a while, and the owner ( John? ) is very friendly and has a high standard of service.... More

decided to eat here after such good reviews but we were quite disappointed. No atmosphere, food middle of the road. Had the lamb crown - pity there wasn't any lamb in it!!

Rolled fillet of beef with rocket & parmesan didn't appear to have any parmesan in it. Salmon with asparagus was devoid of the promised sauce. Beef bourguignonne consisted mainly of over-floured gravy and was served with salad (and mashed potatoes and a small round of corn on the cob). Vegetables and onions/shallots seemed to be "off". And we waited over... More

John and Francien run a really attractive restaurant in the heart of Carvoeiro. From the minute you enter, the immaculately laid tables with their sparkling wine glasses and the welcoming staff give you a confidence that you've made a good choice. And indeed the food only enhances this first impression. There are nice touches such as a little amuse bouche... More

After checking on tripadvisor we had Maxime on our number 1 to visit. It was worth the visit, the food and the service was good and we did eat during our stay 2 times here. The Irish coffee was delicious.

A bit more expensive than most of the other restaurants in Carvoeiro, but definitely worth it. They offer gratis items between each course – melon, a champagne and lime sorbet, port. They offer a separate vegetarian menu. The food is delicious and nicely presented. Service can be slow when they are busy. Tables have linen table clothes. The walls of... More
