Little gem

Dropped in with my wife and two kids prior to a concert. The lady in charge found us a table despite us not having booked. The place is byo- but they directed me to an off licence a short walk away. The tapas was lovely- fried calamari was excellent, as was the Italian meatballs in tomato sauce... read more

We wanted a pre theatre dinner venue and found this place by accident.Dont be put off by the outside appearance inside is charming and appealing.We were lucky enough to be able to eat in the courtyard and were received with warm welcome and served with speed and kindly efficiency. It would have been 4 stars but we didn't get chance... More

Not a great fan of tapas, when in Spain / Mallorca I will eat at "local" tapas bars, pick and choose what I eat, cant really say that this place rang my bell...... nothing bad, just not really authentic ?

We rarely eat in Wolverhampton centre but today we ventured in for the first time on Saturday lunchtime for a coffee which were good value. We hadn't intended to eat but we scanned the menu and were tempted to share the mediterranean salad and patatas. Both very nice too. Now that we know the cafe and its extensive menu we... More

Had a lovely evening at Cafe Maxsim, a tapas cafe/restaurant in Darlington Street Wolverhampton. We had a warm and friendly welcome. Despite forgetting to notify the staff in advance that I am a vegetarian coeliac, I was able to choose from a wide range of delicious dishes, since gluten free bread is readily available and most dishes can be adapted....

A little gem of a cafe-bar with the most delicious tapas and excellent service. All cooked fresh for us. Service is provided along with any advice needed about the dishes. Take your time with a couple of friends and try as many dishes as possible. You just don't want to miss out on any of it. All cooked fresh on... More

Visited for lunch two days on the trot. Nice place, it does have an outside seating area to the rear as well as tables inside. The menu is quite large offering smaller tapas plates, plus pasta dishes, Panini's, & jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings. Prices are very reasonable (add on 70p for eating in). I had quesadilla wedges,... More

Nice to visit a restaurant where the staff really look after you. The food was really, really good too! We had a large group and we were all well looked after. The deserts were not all that good though and that is pretty much the ONLY reason not to award 5 stars. One other negative is if you are a... More
