My past experiences at their manila locations were exceptional. In manila, the service and food was consistently excellent. Maybe times change or maybe because this is the cebu location. Its still service with a smile, but they don't seem as responsive and the food is good but not excellent like the past.

Max's is a chain in the Philippines, if you've eaten at one, you've eaten at all of them. The food is Fil-AM style with many chicken dishes. Like eating @ Perko's, Denny's or Carrow's in the USA

If you are really hungry, there are larger platters to share among people. Rice comes with every meal! The menu at all Max's is the same, so it is pretty predictable. The... More

Several times we eat already in Max's and we never went out dissapointed, so we regularly go back there. Max's is originally a chicken-restaurant and serves one of the best fried chicken dishes you can expect from a chain-restaurant. Perfect place for shopping-combined lunch, merienda or dinner.

Had dinner here after a long plane trip. Was so hungry. Ordered a lot of food including dessert. Noticed that it took forever for the food to arrive. When it finally got there we started to eat. As we were getting full I asked the waitress to cancel the halo halo. She said no can do because she already punched... More

Max Restaurant in Ayala Center is located in the lower level, across Insular Life Bldg. Near Max are: StarBucks, La Tegola, Gelato Ice Cream, and the fountain.
