“Excellent food in Kinsale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We walked by in the afternoon, went in and booked Max's for dinner. Very friendly and quality service. Good choice of wine, great food, very pleasant atmosphere. We would certainly recommend this place in the beautiful village of Kinsale.

“Delicious food, great service”

Had the early bird deal. Food was absolutely delicious, cannot fault it at all. Service was really friendly but not overbearing.
Great wine list.
Would recommend to anyone who is going to Kinsale.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a local we met. It offers a fantastic wine list and a charming atmosphere. All the meals are quality but small portions.

“Good food and lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Had dinner here and enjoyed it very much, Had the grilled mussels followed by venison stew. Both excellent. There is a nice garden out back for smokers. At 7 pm the restaurant was full (early bird specials until 7.30),
