Why is this place empty?

This friendly little cafe serves excellent food but when we went at lunchtime on the last Saturday in February there were about six other people in there and when we left it was empty. Why?? Virtually opposite the side of Beatties it is only a few minutes' walk from the main shopping area. They... read more

I am a regular customer here, it is my "go to" place for lunch when I am in town or if we just want to "go out for tea" on a Friday or Saturday evening with the family. A friendly welcome always meets you here. Not traditional tapas but a variety of tasty snacks and light meals. An ideal lunch... More

We had a very late booking for a table, they managed to fit us in with plenty of room. Although they had to push tables together it wasn't unpleasant at all. They had a group much bigger than ours to serve but the staff still gave everyone time and attention. The food was delightful and moreish. We all said we'd... More

Make this my lunch of choice if in town. Great small plates of food or good sandwiches if that is what you want. Don't go expecting traditional Spanish tapas because that is not what you will get as . Don't miss their home made cheesecakes.

We stopped by for an afternoon lunch. The atmosphere was light and pleasant. It was our first time trying tapas but we were delighted with both the variety and the quality of the food. Highly recommended if you're looking for somewhere just for the two of you. (Try the fish!)

I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food. My friend wouldn't allow me to eat yet another jacket potato, although they were listed on the very varied menu. What ever it was I had on a beget it was very yummy and with the added potato wedges it all went down a treat. We had a sweet too, that... More

I've been to Café Maxim a number of times over the years and had some nice food but I think they need a bit of a wake up call. We spent £55 as a couple last night (which isnt cheap) and they didn't do much cooking for this money. The paella was an embarrassment, I'm sorry but it was. £10... More
