Had never eaten at a Michelin star restaurant before so was a little unsure what to expect being a Northerner brought up on simple food, but the whole experience was fantastic. We were politely greeted on arrival and shown to our table in a lovely room overlooking the garden, the service and food were excellent as were the local wines... More

It's been long time I have not written a review, but I could not miss this chance to express how much I liked Le Maximilien. It is simply perfect! In my view this restaurant soon will get second Michelin Star. I have now been to two Michelin star restaurant yet, but if any restaurant should get it, it is Le... More

Me and my family, we celebrated many of our precious time in Le Maximilien, and we've never been disappointed. Just a day before Easter, we were there to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary, as usual the manager was greeting us friendly and the sommelier was generous on serving the wine. The food was just perfect! Chef of Le Maximilien... More

We celebrated my husbands birthday in this restaurant and we were very disappointed. The first course was over salted, and my main course was just not good. The lighting throughout the restaurant is very cold, which makes for a very unpleasant atmosphere. The food is way over priced for what it is.

I liked everything about Le Maximilien. First of all the setting - such a beautiful place right along the vineyards and a friendly tasteful dining room. The service was just right - present when you wanted it and absent otherwise. The food was great - surprising, varied and beautiful. A couple of weeks before we ate at a Michelin 3... More

Michelin star restaurant; beautiful setting in the Alsace just next to the vineyards. The interior is (tot our taste) outdated. The food is very good, but for a Michelin star restaurant a bit on the 'safe' side.

We were spoilt and ate at 3 Michelin Star restaurants during our seven day stay in Alsace - JYS (Colmar), La Table du Gormet (Riquewihr) and Le Maximilien. On all occasions, as you would expect, the meals were beautifully cooked and well presented (obviously a huge amount of work goes into preparing these meals), the restaurants were ambient, the service...
