Description: Max's Seafood Restaurant in Kinsale was established in 1978 and serves a wide array of carefully crafted seafood dishes by resident head chef and owner Olivier Queva. Early Bird menu available, daily specials, and the best array of fine wines and local cheese. Situated in the heart of Kinsale in West Cork and simply, a great place to eat!

Wow! My partner and I dined at Max's on our last night in Kinsale as we wanted to finish with the best. We weren't disappointed at all. It was perfect! Our waiter and waitress were very attentive and the food was delicious and very different to other restaurants. A real taste of luxury!

After an unpleasant experience at Hoby's our faith in Kinsale's reputation as a foodie destination was restored at Max's, nothing too adventurous but well cooked and great service in a lovely environment.

I went to Max's wine bar in Kinsale this evening for the early bird menu.
I've been there several times before, in fact I've been going there for about ten years but never put pen to paper to sing their praises and it's high time I did.
This is the first time I've been to Max's this year and true to form they achieved their usual high standard of gastronomy and service.
Beautiful meal, good selection of local produce,(particularly fish) this chef obviously loves their craft. It's not simply cooking that goes on in this kitchen, it's creative genius.
Good wine selection and lovely comfy, convivial surroundings.
Well done Max's......
If you want to impress someone special or just treat yourself to a great meal out Max's is the place to go.
The early bird menu is great value for money.

We showed up without reservation and luckily they had availability. We had a great meal, the monkfish was excellent. They have a good selection of wines.

When you go to the food capital of Ireland for two nights and return to the same restaurant both nights what more need's to be said.
Max's Wine Bar is an excellent restaurant the food especially the fish.
We had starters of langoustine (Dublin bay prawns) which would melt in your mouth followed by John Dory. Food five stars.
The place is spotless, the tables are not on top of each other, the atmosphere is lovely, the staff are professional and friendly. This is run by a husband and wife team and you can see the care and work they put into the business.
We will be back.
