Stopped here on a whim as it looked inviting. Greeted with a warm welcome. Masses of choice on the menu ranging from pizzas to traditional Greek cuisine. My fiancée and I both opted for Greek dishes. I chose chicken of the gardener, which was chicken breast in a cheesy sauce and my fiancée had the Greek chicken, which was in... More

made us feel so welcome, lovely lady on the reception area, so friendly and helpful on what to eat. We eat there 3 nights out of our 5 because it was so lovely and a reasonable price. Recommend you have at least one meal there

We had an enjoyable meal at Maxim choosing from a variety of Greek dishes which were served by a very pleasant waitress who had a busy restaurant to look after but was totally in control and coped admirably. On the seafront in Lixouri it is worth a visit.

We pulled up at Lixouri in front of the Maxim just by chance after the drive from Katelios via Argostli. We didn't take the ferry because it was Sunday and the departures seemed erratic. In fact I'd recommend the drive just for the scenery, although the roads are under repair after last years quake. We liked the look of it... More

We visited Maxim twice during our 1 week stay in Kefalonia. We tried both the fish and local specialities. The food was well cooked, generous and tasty on both occasions. The service was excellent and very friendly (as are most people on the Island). The view is hampered by the harbour repairs that are on going, but Maxim is due... More

Always have a good meal at Maxim's. You can sit right on the harbour front or inside if it's a bit windy. Food is generally pretty good and much the same price as the other restaurants on Lixouri front.

Lovely restaurant on the harbour front in Lixouri. Good choice of Greek, Italian and other dishes at a reasonable price. We visited here three times during our week long stay, as the food and service was so good. Young friendly staff, made us feel very welcome.

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.
