About Kaiser Maximilian

If you enjoy European sidewalk cafés and fine continental cuisine, this award-winning eatery evoking Old Vienna at its heyday is sure to charm you. A longtime Vallarta favorite, Austrian owner Andreas Rupprechter named the place in honor of fellow countryman, Mexico’s former emperor. And Maximilian himself would have loved dining here, perhaps, choosing hearty comfort food like Wienerschnitzel with potatoes and Austrian salad. Or delving into gourmet renditions of contemporary European fare, like Duo of duck breast and duck confit with Spätzle, mushrooms and sugar snap peas. And while the menu is constantly being tweaked, it’s nice knowing that some things don’t change, and for a dozen of years we’ve been able to count on enjoying our favorite plates here. So whether dining al fresco with unparalleled people watching, or in an intimate, air-conditioned, Old World milieu, when a fabulous meal or just a perfect pastry and a special coffee is what you crave, this is the place to be.

Table was waiting for us and we were seated immediately. The restaurant filled quickly and we were glad to have made reservations. I had Rahm Schnitzel and sauce was especially delicious. My dining partner had Wiener Schnitzel and it was nothing special. For dessert we had apple strudel and was very good. Service was excellent . It was a good dining experience.

Sorprendente en Sabores ya que la comida austriaca en México no es común. El servicio es muy bueno ya que hay gran conocimiento de La Cocina y con confianza se le puede consultar a los meseros. El propietario está al pendiebt

Very much a fine dining establishment. From the service to cuisine, every aspect is very polished. While I would have liked to have met the BOH staff, I can't imagine being so gauche as to have interrupted such culinary artistry.

Consistently one of Puerto VAllarta's best restaurants. Outdoor seating on the sidewalk ( not for me) a little cramped inside. Excellent Austrian cuisine. They also serve American and European inspired dishes. Great wine list and outstanding service.

During our recent vacation, we dined at Kaiser Max several times. Each time the food was outstanding; the service can't be beat. Family members who had not been there before loved it!!!! Luis should be honorably noted for his many talents and charm.

Have been here many times, has always been one of our favorites in PV. However, this time they put us outside (street side). There is car traffic on one side and pedestrian traffic on the other. The dirt, noise and stares did not make for a pleasant Valentines Dinner. Absolutely no ambience. Did not have our favorite waiter Juan. I did speak with them when we left to share my concerns and say hi to Juan. It will not stop us from going there again, it was just a disappointment that night.

Andrea does a great job and we love seeing Luis, our favorite waiterm year after year. In addition to the wonderful food, consistency in staff says something positive about the place. HAve already booked another dinner there before we leave PV.

Been coming here with my aunt & uncle when I visit for years now. Brought my girlfriends this trip and Luis was our waiter - great as always! We tried the Spinach strudel appetizer w/ salad, beef tenderloin with gorgonzola, shrimp/chicken/fish entree and the veal scallopini as well as several desserts. As usual, it was my favorite meal of the trip. We will be back!

The menu is more Continental Cuisine than strictly Austrian. My partner had a dish I've never heard of and can't spell. It was a beef dish that started with a W (not weinerschnitzel) . It was very tasty. He started with a quail appetizer which he totally enjoyed.
I had the veal leg and it was absolutely Delicious. I started with a perfectly made martini. Ordered a great salad with lightly marinaded beets and the best vinaigrette dressing I wish I could get the receipt for.

We requested and got patio seating. This restaurant is in Old Town and there is a colorful array of people and peddlers passing by. It was a little distracting, but still fun. We could not have asked for better service. Would highly recommend Kaiser Maximilian.
