My partner ate at this restaurant over 20 years ago. That, in and of itself, says a lot. For a restaurant to have this staying power, it has to be consistent in all aspects, e.g. service, quality of food, presentation, etc. No wonder this restaurant is still here. We had a great meal at a reasonable price. OMG, the crepe... More

We love going here every year when we visit. Service was excellent. Specialty martinis done as instructed. Food quite good. We love sitting on the covered sidewalk and watch people walk by. Cannot wait for another visit next year.

When we are tired of local food, we always like to head over to Maxamilian to get our fix of Wienerschnitzel. Quick and friendly service coupled with good food is always a good recipe for repeat customers like ourselves

The Kaiser Maximilian is part of Hotel Los Arcos and the staff are very nice. The prices are a little higher than the other ones. But if you want coffee with a snack or dessert this is the place.

It is very rare that we visit a restaurant twice. Usually we prefer to experience something new. However, Kaiser Maximilian is not only one we return to each trip to PV, but one we also dined at twice this last trip. It honestly is that good! Diners can elect to dine inside the restaurant or al fresco under their small... More

This is one of the finest restaurants I have been to. We had main courses of beef short ribs, escargot, and Wiener schnitzel, along with other foods, and they were all excellent. The service was superb, the waiter was right there all the time. We sat out on the sidewalk and enjoyed everything that was going on around us. All... More

Sit inside in a small,cozy restaurant, or outside on the sidewalk. I live in Puerto Vallarta and consider this restaurant one of the best in town. Excellent food and service. Never disappoints.

This is not the place to go if you are looking for something new and trendy. This a comfortable place, not noisy to have you favorite Swiss style food. Most of the dishes are good but but not very innovative. You won't have a bad meal here. Best to make sure this is what you are in thevmood for.

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 we’ve been able to count on enjoying our favorite plates here. So whether dining al fresco with unparalleled people watching, or in an intimate, air-conditioned, Old World milieu, when a fabulous meal or just a perfect pastry and a special coffee is what you crave, this is the place to be.
