  • I had the most wonderful evening in Maxims (used to be the Wayside Tavern) what a transformation, the decor is lovely so is the ambiance, an the court yard is lit up with candles.
    The chef is French and came out to talk to us after the meal, the food was superb and it is so reasonable compared top other restaurants at this standard, I really recommend this, I am sure you will enjoy the food and ambiance, we really thought it was good.

  • We was there the last week, but...
    For us, the true French restaurant is Nova Bleue ( thank you Garlickbread ) with their true French chef ( ex La Estancia ).
    If you try it, you'll see the difference.

  • I agree with Konoi. For me Nova Bleue is a really best french restaurant. The prices of wine are very reasonable and the decor delightful.
    They stay " a new star ".

  • I had a meal at Nova Blueu and even though we were the only table there, I don't remember the meal too well as we drank a bottle of wine whilst waiting for the meal, it was very slow.
    I don't eat out alot in this area, but I was disappointed by El Guanche too, the new French restaurant Maxims is run by an amazing French chef who does not own a microwave, how many times have you sat in a restaurant and heard that dreaded 'ding' just before your meal has been served!
    We were told he makes his own ice-cream and sauces and also the lovely crepe suzettes, which I am no expert on, but the table next to us were most impressed, what impressed me the most were the home made chocolate truffles with the coffe, just divine.
    The only other places in this area I have enjoyed have been typical Canarian food which is lovely, but Maxims certainly has my vote now.

  • Ok I think this dialog between the owners/representatives of the two french restaurants "in Town" has gone on long enough this topic now locked
