We came here for Sunday brunch on vacation. The breakfast BLT I had was one of the best sandwiches I have had for any meal ever. It was HUGE and flavor-filled. Plus, you had me at "bottomless mimosas". Everyone else enjoyed their meals. My friend got the macadamia French toast and liked it but felt that the nuts overpowered the... More

We have been coming here for many years and this restaurant is pretty good although not the best around. We recently tried the Neighborhood Nights menu on a Sunday night. Probably not one of the best nights to go to this restaurant. It seems as though the wait staff and chefs are sort of like the 4th shift. For the... More

Had family in town and took them to Cafe Maxx. What a treat. My parents travel a lot and are very hard to impress. Ricardo was our server and he was very professional with great suggestions. The food and wines were out of this world. We had many dishes. A great scallop carpaccio so creative, scallops were red. Tuna Pizza... More

Small place with excellent service, wines and most important spectacular food. Menu changes regularly. Tuna pizza appetizer is a must. Deserts are great also.

I am surprised this restaurant is not rate higher! As a matter of fact I am surprised that it is not on top like #1 restaurant in Pompano. This is some of the best food I ever had! The service was very good as well. I highly recommend if you are in Pompano!!!

We went to Cafe Maxx with much excitement. It was our first time there and we were going to celebrate my birthday. We had heard mostly good things, we knew it was expensive but that was okay since it was a special occasion (and I wasn't paying) :) Upon arrival we went in and immediately noticed old tables and chairs...

Café Maxx, is and has been for many years the "spot" for special occasion dinners, and celebrations, unique , intimate spot, with one of the owners, who is also the chef, preparing amazing meals! Wonderful wine list and bar!

Imagine looking at a menu with so many outstanding choices that you don't know what to eat. We decided to share a pasta dish for the appetizer - Perfection. Main course and side dishes outstanding. Service excellent. If you what an incredible dining experience then this is the restaurant for you.
