Kaiser Maximilian


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2019 Winner

Location and contact

If you enjoy European sidewalk cafés and fine continental cuisine, this award-winning eatery evoking Old Vienna at its heyday is sure to charm you. A longtime Vallarta favorite, Austrian owner Andreas Rupprechter named the place in honor of fellow countryman, Mexico’s former emperor. And Maximilian himself would have loved dining here, perhaps, choosing hearty comfort food like Wienerschnitzel with potatoes and Austrian salad. Or delving into gourmet renditions of contemporary European fare, like Duo of duck breast and duck confit with Spätzle, mushrooms and sugar snap peas. And while the menu is constantly being tweaked, it’s nice knowing that some things don’t change, and for a dozen of years

Had a reservation to sit inside, but there was a loud table so we opted to sit out in the sidewalk area. Not a pleasant experience. Vendors constantly stop by trying to sell you stuff and interrupt your conversation. Musicians plant themselves in front of...More
