We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Max. Both the food and service were great and better still, it was just around the corner from our apartment.

“Wonderful experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were recommended to MAX's for dinner which is just round the corner to our hotel. Firstly we like the menu. A 2 course meal is Euro 29 and the 3 course meal at Euro 37.

We decided to try the pan fried scallops and chicken satay on crispy salad for starters and we have to say both were delicious and refreshing. The sea bass as our main course was just simply yummy! Service was fast and efficient. The ambience was small and intimate. There is an upstairs dining area too but we chose to sit downstairs where we can people-watch.

We left MAX that night with full tummys and a smile! Thanks Max!

Came across MAX by coincidence walking by but it was a blast.
Food was great - fresh and well prepared. Service was outstanding! Very well informed and honest - smiling and joking. We had a great experience. Highly recommendable

“Wonderfull!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

The food was great, the staff very nice and the owner went out of his way to give us a great evening even though he was not there.

We had our 11th wedding anniversary there with our 1year old. We left with full bellies, and a nice experience.

We had the tasting menu and we stuffed ourselves with it. It was refilled when requested and there was more than enough. The food was very tasty and rich in variety.

The price was very reasonable for what we had and we can highly recommend it. The place was almost full and all there seemed to enjoy the food and laid back vibe of the place. Advisable to book in advance.

“Excellent rijsttafel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We don't get too much of a chance to enjoy authentic rijsttafel in Boston and knew that Amsterdam would provide an opportunity for that. For us, that was Max. Even though we were only in Amsterdam on a two day layover and had a packed itinerary, we wanted to squeeze this in. Even though we arrived at 9:30 pm after our Red Light Tour, Max welcomed us, prepared the dinner according to our tastes and preferences and even recommended drinks to match and asked us if we would like more of anything on the plate that we particularly liked. Of course, the dinner was great and more than enough. Great food and a friendly and yet funky smaller restaurant was a very positive experience for us. Thanks Max. If we're ever in Amsterdam again, we'll be back.
