Perfect staff

What a lovely place to eat! The atmosphere was great and the staff were the most attentive of anywhere I have eaten. The food was good and good value for money, I will most definitely visit again.

While you will always be able to get your favourites here - there is always a specials board that never fails to satisfy. Meals cooked freshly and staff always happy to recommend or explain. Good Coffee. Love it here,

To of us had a meal here in the evening rush time. Yes the staff were a bit rushed but the service was still reasonably quick and they were very friendly. The menu is tapa and Italian pasta dishes mainly. The portions are not large but the food all seemed to be freshly cooked and their own recipes/styles which we... More

The size of the portions are perfect for sharing and encourage you to try the different dishes on the menu. We sampled 4 or 5 dishes and all were excellent!

Had a fantastic meal at maxims. The calamari is to die for. The service was second to none as it was packed and we didn't wait long at all. Over all one of the bests in Wolverhampton. The only place in town worth going to.

This review is based on 3 visits. Due to the high score and high amount of those reviews, I visited with high expectations. The food is nice but I always come away thinking that an average cook could create the same at home. The decor is typical of a European cafe, slightly dated with lots of clutter behind the counter.... More

I had lunch here a few weeks ago with friends, the staff are friendly and the resturant is busy. The food was nice however one member of our party waited longer then the rest. I do like this resturant however it seems short on staff. I would return however would avoid the lunch time rush.
