The place is very Italian with most of the staff talking to each other in Italian. We had a very tender tuna carpaccio (where the chef sprinkled the Balsamico personally over my tuna because he thought it tasted better), a rich tomato soup full of...More

Excellent food, had prawns in garlic sauce and risotto. Service was good and they accommodated gluten free well, although no choice of dessert - ice cream / sorbet or nothing! That was a shame as the other courses had plenty of choice. Luckily we were...More

Max's Bar and Brasserie is situated in the heart of Oxford Street that it is the site of Southampton's cosmopolitan. About Max's Bar & Brasserie There are many Italian or Italian style restaurants in the UK. In our mind there are two types. There's the national chain where everything is decided at head office and made to a particular price point. Then there's the authentic Italian run and owned family restaurants where food is passion and a way of life. We have nothing against the chains but we do things differently at Max's. When you visit Max's you're treated like a family member. You'll often find adjacent tables talking to each other and making friends. This isn't a marketing gimmick. It's just the Italian way. In the kitchen we have Gennaro from Napoli in the Campania region of Italy. Between them they have more than 30yrs experience in the kitchen. Everything on the menu is created with I don't forget to try the world famous Balsamic G&T ,,,
