The reviews are very mixed for this restaurant but we had a lovely meal and really enjoyed the experience. I had the swordfish with potatoes cooked in the oven with tomato and my wife had the seafood pasta. Both meals were fantastic and we will be going back for more during our time on the island.

Usually very good but today Sunday, the food was poor all day and this evening Maxims usual waiting staff were off. The food was really poor and the service was appalling... Watch out Maximx because VS Corner or BoVita will take your custom!

we sat on the port side away from the road, it was lovely to sit looking towards the port watching all that was going on, the prices are very good, and lots of choice, the staff here very freindly.

Food was very good, wide range to choose from. A little pricey in comparison to others in the area but if you take that into consideration you shouldn't be disappointed.

Food was very poor, pizzas had a pre-made (supermarket bought?) base which tasted like cardboard, Stifado was luke warm and not very tasty. Avoid

We ate here about 6 times on a 2 week holiday. The food was good and the staff was friendly. The staff was excellent at their jobs they became good friends to me and my boyfriend. I would visit this restaurant next year when we will return. Say hi to Anna and Yonna they are 2 sisters.

The Maxim aspect is very good, with a good terrace. That's it! The food is average, so untasteful too touristic, it is good for who doesn't know the greek cuisine, for anyone else does not worth a visit. The staff is composed by three girls, very pushy and so unprepared. I had not enjoyed it at all.

Great service, food, and the perfect location. We loved spinach pies and cheese pies, enjoyed great fresh fish, and there was plenty of choice for my fussy boyfriend who only eats meat and carbs. Sit outside, look over the mountains and enjoy great food as the sun goes down.
