Why so high grades? The location and the staff are nice, but the pasta was watery and with pork and beef, not just beef, the desert was a day old at least, and even the natural juice was made from dry oranges, ok, i admit i ve eaten all up because i was very hungry :))

A well renovated old house in downtown Sibiu, close to the Little Square, serving Italian and international dishes. The food is good and the service o.k. On the down side, it can be noisy at peak hours and a bit pricey for Sibiu. I recommend the beef on the rock!

This restaurant is a nice place to eat and has a large selection of foods from meat to seafood. My favorite is steak on hot stone that you actually cook your own meat on a hot stone right at your table. They also have an octopus appetizer that is really good and a large portion.

We went to Max for dinner and everything was excellent, the service, the atmosphere, the food. We had the calamari to start with and it was great, big portion for a starter so recommend you share, then my husband had the steak on a hot stone which was the best ever and I had the sea bream with truffle sauce...

Came here on Easter Sunday so maybe they had their second team in the kitchen. Atmosphere was superb - very stylish yet rustic. Service was excellent. Started with octopus salad- good but woefully under-salted. I had sea bream in truffle sauce with shrimp, cauliflower and broccoli. Again under-salted and needed some acidity to cut the creaminess. Husband had mushroom soup-... More

The tuna was absolutely incredible. The cauliflower was uniquely delicious. The truffle sauce was the perfect pairing with the ravioli.
