This just reminds of discovering a wonderful little place in Italy but it is in Tunbridge Wells. We popped in for some lunch - the food is simple and classic and tastes fabulous. The service from the owners is wonderfully welcoming and we will certainly...More

We always use Max's Italian, especially when we're looking to impress visitors. The pesto is especially good. They always deliver on time, are generous with their portions and never fail on the quality.

I visited this nice little place with my wife for lunch. The food was great and a really friendly reception from the staff. We were really interested in the evening menu and will be going back.

tiny little cafe but with yummy food! Tunbridge Wells is always overcrowded with its cafe culture but if you can get a table here its a good place to escape the town centre.

Six of us had a great evening in Max's. I started with a bruschetta, and it was superb. The secret of bruschetta is to use good, tasty tomatoes and these were full of flavour. My main course of spaghetti with mussels was very good, and...More
