The steak was well cooked and very tender. I found the staff not to be as good though. Not very attentive and forgetting our drinks and bill.

The place have this people trying to convince you to dine there, which can be discouraging. But we were in a hurry and it was near the jazz club. They gave us free house wines which was not bad, drinkable and ok. The pumpkin and asparagus risotto was ok, and I would strongly suggest to remove the mozzarella. It simply... More

On a recent holiday we had breakfast at Max's and it was so nice that we came back two days later for more. The big breakfast was enormous and great quality, as was the egg and bacon rolls and the coffee was the best we had around the area. The staff were very friendly and it is definitely well worth...

Standard "bistro" food was OK. Laminate tables. Very noisy. Good service. Probably targeted at the younger generation.

4 old friends and I met here for lunch last Tuesday. As mentioned in previous reviews, the hard floors mean this space can be a little noisy, but that would be my only detraction. The waitress was very efficient, and charming, and the service prompt. Although the wine list is short it does have some good choices at reasonable rates.... More

Visited on a Tuesday evening with a table of about 10 of us. Was good atmosphere although very loud so a little difficult to chat. Service was great - drinks menus came to the table quickly and food came reasonably soon. The only thing I'd suggest is to order some starters when your first drinks come and then you can... More

We orders pancakes and they were terrible, each of... More

Food was outstanding. Staff was very friendly, even by Australian standards. Reasonably priced, and they even have good house wines. They handled a party of 8 with no problem.
