Kaiser Maximilian Review

Viennese entrées dominate the menu, which is modified each year when the restaurant participates in PV's culinary festival. One favorite is herb-crusted rack of lamb served with horseradish and pureed vegetables au gratin; another is venison medallions in chestnut sauce served with braised white cabbage and steamed vegetables. The adjacent café (open 8 am–midnight) has sandwiches, excellent desserts, and 20 specialty coffees—all of which are also available at the main restaurant. To avoid the stream of street peddlers off the patio, eat in the charming, European-style dining room, where handsome black-and-white-clad servers look right at home amid dark-wood framed mirrors, brightly polished brass, and lace café curtains.

    Kaiser Maximilian Review

    Me and my family come to PV every year in March. The atomosphere is good inside and out, the chicken dish is loved by my picky eater, and the creme' brulee' is divine. I strongly suggest it for breakfast as well, the crepe's are to die for.

    Perfect Every Time

    My wife and I along with another couple visit PV every year and Maximillian's is always a must. The food is outstanding, service charming and the owner, Andrea is a great host. Sitting outside can be a bit noisy but you can get used to it.

    Ambivalent

    I have had some great meals here in the past but the last few visits have been only so so and at very steep prices. My real issues are with the atmosphere and attitude. Inside is tight and stuffy and, this being Mexico, people smoke because they can. Outside is like dining in the middle of a parade - loud, vendors, throngs of tourists. Not where I want to drop $75 or more per person. There is also a definite anti-gay attitude.

    Generally a good experience

    My husband and I have dined here several times. ALMOST every time the food and service have been top notch and worth the price. They have some excellent gourmet type dishes. This is not a place for kids unless they have a wordly pallet. Dining on the street can be disruptive because of the passersby but if you like people watching as we do, it is no problem. Never noticed them to be anti-gay as one reviewer wrote.

    opinionated

    a very overrated pv restaurant. sit on the sidewalk and the crowds of passersby brush your tables. sit inside, and suffocate. pretentious place, over-priced, and a very clear anti-gay attitude for a restaurant that is located in the middle of the gay, zona rosa.
