Very good food, like the smoked salmon starter, followed by the dover sole or the filet Mignon. The service is very friendly and efficient. We come there many times and were never disappointed.

Very impressed on our first visit to Maximes. Decor inside is quirky, loved the 'top hat' lamp shades. Staff were attentive and helpful, lots if choice and good food. Set menu particularly good value at €20 for 3 courses. Best meal so far this holiday!

Maximes never fails to deliver, the atmosphere and food is always excellent. We booked in twice during our holiday as we always have a superb dining experience. The staff are always incredibly friendly and remember returning customers. The food was excellent, I ate the spicy ribs both times as I was blown away with them on our first visit. I... More

New addition to Carvoeiro. Nicely decorated in design and colour. Service very professional and fast. Had goats cheese to start with lamb chops which were equally very good. Again with a superb wine list. Will recommend and visit again.

We (a family party of 5) found this restaurant at the end of our holiday, so only got to eat here twice. We ate inside and really liked the decor. The menu had a great choice. Elena (think that was her name) was fantastic and remembered what each of us had to drink the previous evening. We all had a... More

This is the business, I doubt we will find better during our stay! Hidden in a row of shops, often passed by but on this occasion we spotted it and what a spot that was. If finding a £5 note is good then this was like finding a £50 note. This restaurant is class, the staff are excellent and the... More

We must have walked up and down the Main Street twenty times in our weeks break to this lovely town but only found this little gem on the last day. So we treated ourselves to the fillet steak with onions and mushrooms...best steak we've ever tasted! The owner served us, there was no touting just humble and welcoming. The decor... More

Very good diner, very nice owner, no problem to dinner with the children. We noticed that there where a lot of guests who are coming back to this restaurant. That must be good!

Four guys go on a golfing trip once a year to the Algarve. Each time we go once to Maxime. Run by a Dutch couple - the food is consistently good. The soups are really good. The Fillet steaks were excellent. The service, done mainly by the owner, feels quite personal. A totally safe bet and I would certainly recommend... More
