“Should be michelin star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Don't let the appearance put you off. It is set on the street and is not huge and has quirky nick nacks inside. once you are there it is like stepping back in time to Allo Allo or something similar. The food is out of this world. Really excellent flavours. A mini club sandwich and prawn tempura followed by calves liver and beef. Amuse busch and sorbet in between. divine.tastes. A delicious wine and all ended off with lovely port. This place is special and the staff work hard to keep it in character. Would highly recommend if you like your food,

“An absolute gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We have been to Carvoeiro a number of times but have not visited this restaurant. Probably because of its location. However, we couldn't have been more wrong. The food was fabulous, I had the liver which was wonderful and my husband had the stroganoff which he loved. The additional extras were great - cauliflower soup and a palette cleanser passion fruit in sparkling wine - both free of charge were wonderful. The wine was fabulous and staff great. I loved this restaurant such great value for money.

“Would recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

We couldn’t get into our first choices of restaurants as they were all fully booked and so we went to Maximes as they had a table free, even though we weren’t sure about the place on first impressions. The décor is very old fashioned and is like being in your granny’s living room. BUT we loved it! The service is very good, the main and lady that served us were so friendly. Couvert was bread and flavoured butters. My husband had fish soup to start, which was nice and tasty. I had beef bourginion and my husband had beef stroganoff for main – all very good and very well cooked. They then served a palette cleanser of champagne and sorbet in a glass, not charged for and really nice. We shared apple pie for dessert, but this was a bit tasteless and overdone. Still, the food was generally great and we had a lovely evening. Would recommend.

“Interesting mix of cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Dutch owners with a portuguese/dutch/french melange of cuisine

Excellent food and service and reasonable wine list

The calves liver was superb. Not a vein in sight and as tender as you could want. Also some interesting covers and the apple sorbet was very intriguing

Certainly worth a visit

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

The service was really good, it surpassed our expectations and the average service quality in the area!
The restaurant offers many types of food, including four great vegetarian options that will satisfy anyone!
The price is adequate according to the service and food quality!
