I've been to this restaurant a fair few times, and the first time I came and had the fillet steak I was blown away. I have to have my steak just so and I thought maybe it was just a fluke that they cooked my medium-rare perfectly. But after coming back again and again I have never been... read more

Since this restaurant opened we have visited it, the food is always excellent, ambiance superb and service good. Not much more to say! I think it is the best on all three counts in the whole area. The Beach House could learn a few lessons from them! Staff are all charming, it is all just lovely .... well done to... More

We have visited this restaurant three years running and had always had excellent food, unfortunately this year the food was a little underwhelming. No one complained about the food but all found it just a little bland, this is unfortunate as the views are spectacular and the service was excellent. We also enjoyed a game of pool and drinks in...

We visited Chez Max for an impromptu family meal. The location and view is undoubtedly very impressive - the views over the med are lovely, unfortunately though the food was poor and expensive for what it was. I had the tempting sounding suckling pig and spanish style potatoes which was a particularly poor dish - a huge slab of meat... More

The indoor/outdoor setting in front of the ocean, coupled with expertly prepared and presented food makes this restaurant a great restaurant by anyone’s definition! We've really enjoyed excellent service & atmosphere. We do recommand this restaurant wholeheartedly!! Helia & Michael
