We wandered around looking at noisier and busier places. On our way out to find another restaurant I spotted this corner spot. It was very clean. The staff was nice. The food was good. The patrons were focused on eating a nice dinner and having a glass of wine. It was not a party bar.

Recently visited with my wife. Waiting staff were very good. Food was abysmal. She got a Caesar salad full of microwave chicken. I got the "slow cooked" belly of pork that was so badly incinerated in the microwave it was like rubber. Never before did were we handed such tasteless rubbish. Never again!

My wife and I had one of the best meals here of our entire 15 day trip to Ireland. Food and service were great.

We went there last night for the first time after wandering around the city for a place to eat a bit late. Everything else was booked and as we were about to go eat fast food we just saw a glimpse of it and decided to go in. The place was half full but it seemed quite nice. We got... More

I visited this restaurant for the first time in the company of friends and it was pleasant. Staff was really nice, polite and unobtrusive (very important to me). Choice of food was good. I was eating goat cheese salad with chicken, friends were eating pork belly and salmon. Nice portions for a great price. 2 course meal for 20€ or... More

It was my first time going here and I ordered the pancakes. On the menu it said "stack of pancakes" with fruit and maple syrup. What I got was fruit that seemed like it was from a can and two crepes. There was no stack of pancakes. Now, it was tasty but it was definitely overpriced for what I got.

I ate in Maxwell's on Friday, Jan 27 in the evening about 7.30pm, with my teenage daughter. There were about 5 other tables occupied at the time. The servers were pleasant and attentive though it did take longer to receive our food than we had been advised by the waiter when we ordered. My daughter ordered a burger and although... More

Hi Deirdre, I am awfully disappointed to read your review and to hear of your dissatisfaction. Our burger's are one of our best sellers here at Maxwell's, and customers tend to be very satisfied with this dish. We use a Brioche Bun - and when toasted, turns the brown color you have described, although perhaps in your case the bun... More

I was roaming around looking for a new place to try for dinner. I had waited so long to eat and the night was getting colder and the rain was starting to come down harder, when I ducked into Maxwells. I almost didn't stay since there wasn't another soul in the place, but they were so welcoming, I figured why... More
