Feel the spirit of France right here in Dublin! Established in February 2005, Chez Max on Palace Street (at the gates of Dublin castle) is very much a traditional French cafe. Chez Max is particularly well-known for its’ charming back garden – a small haven that will transport you directly to Paris!

Directly across the road from The Olympia Theatre, we are tucked in on Palace Street beside Dublin Castle.

 Ext Patio

Serving classic homemade dishes with a Parisian flair, Chez Max is open all day for breakfast, lunch, early bird (€19) and dinner. Please see our website for menu information:

You can pop in at any time during the day for a glass of wine accompanied by a cheese and charcuterie platter.

A birthday? A Wedding? A business dinner? A special event? Chez Max Palace Street can accomodate all your queries.

"It felt like Paris, and for a wet Sunday night in Dublin, that's not bad going" - Irish Independent

"Max de Laloubie has re-created a little corner of Paris next to Dublin Castle" - Irish Times

Like in France, we celebrate the 'Beaujolais Nouveau' with accordion live music during the evening.
