Spending a weekend in Wolverhampton and looking for a reasonable Saturday night meal. Trusting Tripadvisor as always, we telephoned for a short notice booking. Delighted they squeezed us in. Excellent range of Tapas which they were more than happy to adjust to meet dietary requirements. Generous portions. Three each was plenty for the three of us. The prawn filled crab... More

We had a lovely evening here on Friday. The hosts are very welcoming and the 5 tapas offer was more than sufficient for 2 people. It was great to see the place so well supported as every table was taken whilst we were there. Contrary to some other reviews, we didn't consider the food tasteless and the portions were very...

The whole experience -- once again -- was faultless. 🎉 I took my dad, whose standards are pretty high, and not only did he have trouble choosing from what was an extensive menu, he loved all of the dishes presented. The desserts were also unmissable so remember to indulge! I know someone was concerned that the chef isn't Spanish but... More

There was 8 of us for dinner. 1st time for all of us even though Maxsims has been here for years. The menu was extensive and we all had 3 dishes each. All the food was cooked fresh and we were not worried who's came out first. The food was tasty and hot. You bring your own alcohol but you... More

Max and Sim are great hosts, the tapas tastes amazing, and this is a great little venue, whether as a couple or a larger party. The outdoor area makes you feel like you could be in the Mediterranean ! Love this place and love the people!

My fiance and I went for a meal here on a Friday night and it was awesome! The hostess was lovely, very friendly and welcoming. To top it off, she, Luke the waitress was Spanish, which adds to the general feel of the place. We were seated in the courtyard which was great, it was heated by a log burner... More

This place has great friendly service and a huge selection of dishes. The food is generally very good. I have several Spanish friends and have much experience with Spanish food and I can tell you that the dishes here are not authentic if you are looking for the true taste of Spain. No licence so take your own booze.

The 5 tapas dishes for £25 is quite good value. At just 12.50 per person, it is quite a lot of food. 4 tapas dishes would definitely have sufficed though and would have been cheaper. The fact that you are allowed to bring your own drink is really great. Not only is it more economical for customers, but it adds... More

Really nice people and good service, unfortunately really poor food. Tasteless tapas, with very poor presentation. Calamari was not fresh, like squid flavoured onion rings from frozen, not good. Quesadilla wedges were tortillas filled with sliced ham out of a packet. Average, at best. Chicken skewers, dry and flavourless, same with the meatballs. How this place has 4.5 out of... More

A real gem in the heart of a failing city. Wolverhampton unfortunately has very little to offer. This is in my opinion the best food in the town. Well done and thank you all.
