Maximilian's is set in a large old homestead building, which has quite a Bavarian atmosphere. There's big hearths with open fires, which was a blessing on this day and large wooden beams and huge thick walls and ledges.
The menu has something for all tastes and catered for the vegetarians among us. The food presentation was high, with great side dishes and heavenly desserts. The hand cut chips were quite addictive! The prices are at the high end.
The restaurant also has its own cellar door with the Sidewood label; a very light and bright Sauvignon Blanc was a good enhancement to our meal.
The kids on our table appreciated the traditional kids menu, as well as the opportunity to step outside among the big gums to the golf driving range.
Try your hand at a hole in one and win $2,000. It is fun to watch people teeing off to hit their target, which is on an island in the middle of the lake. The golf balls are 50c each and a bottle of cider is also a reward for actually getting the ball on the green!
The restaurant was having booming business for a Sunday lunch, which is always a good sign.
There is also an outdoor fernery area and beer garden.
