Fun meal

Eleven of us visited last Saturday night. Friendly, informal and fresh imaginative tapas but my Spanish pals would not feel at home with the selection so I couldn't take them there. If I had to pick anything then the calamari batter was under-cooked.

We had lunch here and it was recommended by friends. Thoroughly enjoyed it. High quality food with a friendly service in very simple surroundings. Well done.

An intimate, informal tapas cafe. The food was unpretentious, delicious and full of flavour! The staff were very friendly and service was excellent. Good value too. It does not serve alcohol but you can bring your own. Will definitely go back

I went last night for a catch up meal with a friend. We were greeted by really friendly staff and had a fabulous meal. We spoke to the owner about a crafting project that we wanted to start with corks and she gave us a bag full of corks to go home with :) Will definitely be visiting again soon!

We'd been meaning to try cafe maxsim for a while so last night we did.....and we're glad we did! It was really busy which created a lovely atmosphere. Efficient, friendly service and an excellent choice of tapas. The waitress told us what was on specials menu and informed us of the offers. We opted for 5 tapas for £25 and... More

We go to cafe maxsim quite a lot. Its reasonably priced for the excellent food. The food is always hot and tasty, and the staff are friendly, attentive and fantastic. My favourite is the 'prawn piperada' and the new menu is packed and still flavoursome. I'm having my hen party here, I can't wait.

It's been a while since we visited Maxsim's due to family commitments but we were welcomed warmly by Simona and Max and shown to our preferred table. They had even remembered our favourite dishes. As it was our wedding anniversary we were made to feel very special but they do treat all their customers that way. For starters we had... More

The menu boasts a wide selection of authentic homemade tapas dishes with a fusion of Mediterranean influences, a welcoming family business and a talented chef with a passion for real homemade cooking.
