Rude wait staff and everything seemed like an inconvenience. Food was incredibly overpriced for the serving sizes you get and menu was poor (we had carrots for entrees, just carrots). Meat dishes were given to vegetarian and dishes with nuts for people with allergies, waitress...More

Had an excellent xmas lunch at Maximilian’s! Terrific venue, great staff, excellent food. In particular the two vegetarians had food that was clearly created with thought and effort instead of the usual afterthought experienced at other restaurants. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

The Service was great and ambience was also good. The food was good but the chateaubriand was not as good as previous owner had provided. The meat should have been a little more tender and the bernaise sauce was a little bland. Otherwise very good

This is a restaurant you should not miss when you go to the Adelaide Hills, it is run by amazing staff and the food is just perfect. I have been going to this restaurant for 22 years.

Visited with 8 adults and 2 babies. Staff could not have been more accommodating on a very busy Saturday afternoon. We chose to go with the 'chefs choice'. Best food we had on our visit to South Australia. The golf was an added extra
