We had an excellent lunch. We ordered the set and requested for more vegetarian options and the Chef obliged!! Food came out hot and the taste was very well balanced. Not too fancy. Wines were unique too - more old world subtle style rather than full in the face new world. We will return. It was good value considering the... More

Dined here recently with some friends over from Perth. We all ordered the chefs selection on the menu and couldn't fault any of the dishes. All were deliciously tasty and well presented. The service was wonderful, with the staff being friendly and informative on all the dishes and wines.

4 of us visited Maximilian's on a Sunday. The meals did not disappoint, from the entrees to the mains the food was well cooked and ample. I had the pulled pork entree and the fish as a main. A generous side of Brussel sprouts with chorizo added to the flavour. All four of us enjoyed the day with no down... More

We had a family lunch for 10 and sat outside at Maximilian's. The day was glorious, the food was fabulous, the wine was delicious, need I say more? We had the 'Let us feed you' menu and the produce was fresh, tasty and served with care. The waiters were busy as they had some unexpected guests but we never felt... More

Fabulous location and great place for a function. Thoroughly recommend it for a get together. HOWEVER it is most definitely not first class food or service. As long as you go there understanding that you are just getting expensive pub food you will love it. The location is wonderful and the staff friendly and they try their best. Just beware... More

We dined here for our 20th wedding anniversary and were generally happy with the night. It was a Thursday night and fairly quiet with only 2 or 3 other tables occupied. We chose the Chefs shared menu and the Sidewood wine flight with upgrade to Mappinga reserve. Overall food was excellent with the highlight being the snapper, the wine was... More
