This restaurant serves very modern delicious fusion food. Tasty and well prepared. We had a three course summer menu when Amsterdam was at its best. "Test Diner"

“Fabulous food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

An unusual blend of Asian and EU. Absolutely delicious. We could not fault the food. Service was also very efficient but our waitress was not particularly friendly (needs to smile more). The meal was let down a little by the white wine - we picked a fairly expensive one and it was warm.

Dear Paul,
Thank you for enjoying our meal.
Being friendly and work efficient with a smile is our motto because we think that's the best what we can do for our guests, but we don't put a poker face with a smile all the time without a reason, sorry for that.
Our more expensive white wines are fitted in a Special Wine Cooler in temperature zone of 8-10 C and this temperature might be for some not cold enough if you used to drink your wine from the fridge around 4 C. Please tell us if you prefer to drink your wine colder and we can fix this in a few minute with our special Ice Cooler.

“Great meal, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

I had friends in from LA, they had been touring around eastern Europe and I was at a loss of where to take them. After Croatia, prauge, etc I new they probably wanted something a bit different and probably not European. I looked up reviews and read about Max, it was great! Highly recommend it!

Thank you. That's excactly what we like to: Something good and Something different. The most of our regulars guests are Amsterdammers and I think they also like this special way of cooking.
Hope see you again at MAX Amsterdam.

“Simply Great - Dessert Espresso Cocktails were nuts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Top Notch casuel meal in a well designed space.

Simple prix fix menu with nice mix of seafood and meat.

The Duchess had the Bang Bang Curry and I ate the Prawn + Cod baked pie (thought it was a touch over coked). We had espresso cocktails for dessert.... They were AMAZING. Got to order one if you go.

I agree with the previous comment that if this Restaurant was in my home city, I would eat there all the time.
