“Very enjoyable..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Had to entertain a number of business colleagues recently & was recommended Max's Wine Bar. We certainly were not disappointed! Very friendly staff & food was good. Only negative point - staff were a bit clumsy! When in Kinsale definitely worth a visit.

“Best in Kinsale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

We have visited the restaurant many times over the last 10 years but this year I found the menu significantly upgraded to include many new items that take advantage of the chef's skill. If you are visiting an advanced reservation is mandatory. You can eat at a great price between 6 and 7:30pm where you can have three courses for €30 which is a great deal. Ann Marie and her husband (Chef) have done a great job expanding the wine list and there is something priced for everyone. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for great food at a good price with not just the typical Irish dishes.

“Excellent food in Kinsale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We walked by in the afternoon, went in and booked Max's for dinner. Very friendly and quality service. Good choice of wine, great food, very pleasant atmosphere. We would certainly recommend this place in the beautiful village of Kinsale.

“Delicious food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Had the early bird deal. Food was absolutely delicious, cannot fault it at all. Service was really friendly but not overbearing.
Great wine list.
Would recommend to anyone who is going to Kinsale.
