“Max magnifique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We went on the recommendation of where we were staying and they were so right.
This is a great restaurant with very good food and tremendous atmosphere mainly provided by Max.
Without his wife on, Max ran up and down the stairs all night to make sure that everyone got exactly what they wanted. And we did.
There are 3 set price menus or a la carte.
The 29.5e menu we chose (40e and 21.5e are the other menus) was such great value for such great food. We wouldn’t get one course of not as good food for that amount in Western Australia.
And Max kept coming up and entertaining and making sure all was good. Which it was.
And when we left, despite the fact that most people were leaving at the same time, he took the time to again engage and ask us about our home etc.
A great night out. Highly recommended.

“Quirky cool place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

This was a great mom & pop place where the owner/chef was very helpful with the menus, and very welcoming. The appearance and decor were not what you'd expect (as pointed out by other reviewers), but hey, this is France. We had pork medallions that were very good, as were the other courses, and the prices very reasonable. I would definitely dine there again.

“Good food and great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

As other reviewers have commented do not be put off by exterior or location. Can get busy so booking may be necessary. Service was fast and furious and restaurant has a lively atmosphere.
Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Something for everyone. Good wine list which was not outrageously priced.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone visiting Epernay.

“Best meal of our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

We ate at Chez Max on a Saturday evening. Do not be put off by the exterior or area, inside it is lovely. The staff are friendly and attentive and sympathetic to our lack of French, something rare we discovered as we travelled around the country!
The food was a culinary adventure and every course was perfect. I could not rate this establishment more highly, everything about our meal was perfect and it was not expensive at around 70 euro for four courses with a carafe of house wine.
If you are planning to visit Epernay do give Chez Max a try, but book as it gets busy.

“Excellent in everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

When you walk into a restaurant and ask for a table and are greeted with " yes of course, it'll be a pleasure " you know it's going to be a good evening. We had been here 5 years before and so were very pleased to find it again! The owner, Max? Was extremely pleasant and efficient. We were shown to a table upstairs where we were looked after by the again very efficient and friendly waitress who we learned was Max's wife. She didn't speak any English, but we got by!
We had the 32?euro menu and it was all top quality as was the delicious wine.
Can't recommend highly enough.
