“Too expensive and busy but the quality is good.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Went there on a Saturday afternoon. It was very busy and we had to wait for a table. Once we had the table the service was very quick, too quick. Looks like that they want to serve you very fast so you can also leave very fast. THe waffle and pan cake was very good but way to expensive. We where with 2 adults and 2 children and we paid around 50 euro.

“Amazing Waffles”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We went there for an early afternoon Waffle.
We weren't disapointed, the Waffles are huge, very generously topped with fruits, whipped cream or chocolate...
The waffle itself is amazing : everything you could except : light, delicious, warm, crispy, tasty ...
The whipped cream is also a blast.
The price are a little bit high but it's well worth it.
Staff is great too.

“The annexe experience”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I would have rated this more highly if we had not been stuck in the annexe to the main cafe, which is unfortunately totally devoid of atmosphere and with a large sliding door which banged into me at intervals. The waffles, however, are good. Not cheap, but quality.

“Icing sugar indulgence”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Taking a family of 5 into Max, I knew it was likely to be quite expensive for a lot of hot air; waffles and whipped cream being the most insubstantial of foods - but they really enjoyed it. Somehow the glass chandeliers and 'Sunday' ambience of gentility was entirely fitting for a calorie laden indulgence of sweetness. It did leave me 50 Euros lighter for 15mins of pleasure but there was enough ambience and the service was attentive enough that I didn't feel cheated at all. If you want a waffle experience to remember then Max will fit the bill.

“Don't miss when visitng Ghent”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We found the restaurant by accident, but food and service were excellent in a nice athmosphere.
Don't eat too much in order to be able to taste the famous wafers!!!
