I've been here recently for a brunch and a dinner and I 've got nothing but sweet words for this place. The brunch was served outside, in the upstairs area and the overall experience was tres chic! the dinner was very enjoyable too. I love their long list of French wines, the duck was delicious and the dessert... I could have ordered three. I recommend this place. Will be back soon

I consider myself to be a survivor of this restaurant massacre. I put this down to a thick skin and a strong constitution. The only enjoyable part of the night was the walk towards the exit - but this minor joy was marred by the fact that I had to once again witness the sullen faces of the waiting staff - who were consumed by their self-importance. Over the years I have come to expect a certain amount of obnoxiousness from Parisians but to see such a performance at Christmas in Dublin in 2009 was lamentable.
Advice: DO NOT WASTE YOUR FRANCS.
Au revoir Chez Cax!

I was here with a large group for some birthday celebrations and we were sitting out on the covered terrace - I had come prepared with hat, coat, gloves, scarf the lot expecting the worst but actually we all spent most of the night without coats on as the place is well covered and the heaters were really effective so don't be put off if you're offered a table outside. I had been to Chez Max at Dublin Castle and really loved it so was expecting good things from the new offering and it didn't disappoint. The french onion soup to start was delicious as was the homemade french baguette that was served with it - still warm from the oven. I had the mussels for main course - big portion and very tasty but probably not the best I've had. Coffees to finish were very good too so all in all good food, service and atmosphere, would definitely go back.

Four of us ate here recently and we were all very happy with the food, service, ambience ... the lot.
I had a dozen or so of the tenderest snails I've ever had; served with a garlic herb sauce that didn't kill their flavour. This was followed by braised rabbit which fell away nicely from the bone and was a decent sized piece of meat. (Rabbit can often be a lot of hard work for very little meat).
I finished up with good old fashioned creme brulee which was not adulterated by the addition of fruits or flavoured custard and a good expresso.
We ate indoors but there are nice terraces outside if the weather is suitable. Unfortunately patio heaters abound ... has no one told Chez Max that these are socially unacceptable nowadays?
I'd recommend Chez Max.

A group of us decided to visit the new Chez Max after hearing good things about the original at Dublin Castle. Unfortunately we had a pretty unpleasant experience. One of our group had a common food allergy and informed the waitress taking orders, apparently not a problem. However two successive unsuitable dishes were delivered. When the issue was raised with another waiter, he claimed they hadn't been informed and acted like the whole thing was an imposition upon them. The food for the rest of us was fine, but the unhelpful attitude of the staff left a bad taste in the mouth. As with any restaurant with poor service, I'd be unlikely to return in a hurry.
