Visited Cafe Maxim with our friends for the 1st time on Saturday evening, the staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The menu was extensive, there is literally something for everyone. We ordered meatballs, tortillas, stuffed mushrooms, Calamari Alioli, Pil Pil gambas, anduluzion Special, washed down with a nice Rioja. 10/10, we will certainly be visiting again very soon.

Both of us love Spanish food but could not find anywhere within 20 miles until we discovered Café Maxsim. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. We were greeted by two lovely senoritas and shown to our table. When they bought over the menus they explained the offers and what some of the dishes were and... More

Have been on several occasions now, one for a birthday celebration with fifteen people and as a couple. Each time we have all enjoyed the food. We were especially impressed that one of my friends had allergies to certain foods and they did their utmost best to accommodate them. The lady looking after us was delightful and very good at...

Went to cafe Maxine after recommendation from a friend! It didn't disappoint, a tiny little cafe style place, very helpful staff, we ordered far too many tapas for the 4 of us but all were worthy of eating! Another advantage you can take your own wine or beer! Instead of dessert 2 of us ordered cheese which isn't on the... More

Went here for lunch from work, we had called ahead with our order and it was ready promptly when we arrived- freshly prepared. The Calamari was delicious as were the crab cakes. Maxism is the place to go for authentic tapas and it helps that it is owned by Spanish (as is are the chef and staff) Simone was very... More

We eat here quite regularly altho it has been a while since our last visit. Menu still the same but we had a couple of different dishes this time. We usually have 5 dishes but due to choice we had six! All very tasty. Didn't think we had room for a dessert but we were left for a while to... More

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 have a large list of sandwiches/panini... 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.
