Nice restaurant on the front in Lixouri

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.

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!

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
