I had always believed that Max's restaurants are fast food restaurants, with unhealthy options. Hence, I had never visited them anywhere in the country. I was pleasantly surprised today that they not only have healthy options in general, but also they have many healthy vegetarian options. I ordered asparagus-tofu with rice. I also ate frozen fruits as dessert. The tastes... More

After driving for almost 5 hours, we decided to stop and eat at Maxx's, San Fernando because it is along the highway and after the entrance to the Carmelite Monastery. As usual all the flavor and ambiance of the restaurant can be tasted and felt in this place. Service is good and they also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. You... More

This is my go to restaurant whenever I want to dine out with my family. They offer great prices for bundles of food. Their sinigang and their kare kare are some of my favorite things to order. You absolutely cannot go wrong with their staple dessert, the buko pandan! It's to die for❤️

Very organized. We waited for like more or less 5 mins for our food. Fast... More
