I have never tried the food here but I have had the Freakshake - the Oreo cookie one to be precise. I've had a lot of Freakshakes in London and this is definitely one of the better ones. The oreo ice cream sandwich, which tops it is actually made in house. The result, a gooey, decadent and deadly splurge of calorific goodness that doesn't taste processed but bizarrely fresh - if ice cream can be fresh? Most importantly, the shake actually tasted like a shake (see my other freak shake reviews). What makes their freak shakes different? You can add booze to them. If you're out on the piss, why not?
I went to Maxwell's to try the Freakshake and was not disappointed. It's a popular place, so I'm glad I pre-booked. We decided to have a starter to share, we went for the Nachos with beef chilli, which was great value as it was huge! I'm sure it was meant for 4 people and not 2! That mixed with a nice happy hour cocktail didn't leave much room for the main event. That was a big mistake as it tasted incredible but was ultimately defeated by it! I had the bubblegum flavoured, pokeball donut topped freakshake. I fully recommend this, but don't eat much (if anything) beforehand!
Girls night out - we aren't very familiar with Covent Garden so what we thought would be a mad one ended up just being a nice catch up. Dirty Martini happy hour was our first stop, beautiful cocktails but was too small in there. Making our way home we wondered where would be open late to get food, on our discovery towards the station was Maxwells. Result!!!! We ate, we chat, we saw a rat. That's right a RAT!!!!!! Our waiter who was fully aware from our reactions of what we'd just seen came over and gave a good attempt at explaining why they had RATS.... Something about the Opera House/old building and "you know how it is in London they say you're never more than 6ft from a rat".
A swift exit was made after seeing that, although we had already eaten we both wanted to vom out all that food.
Great location and food was decent... But rats is a massive no no... Restaurants and rats just not a good mix!!!
I had a horrible experience there. I was with some tourists from my country and I invited them to know Covent Garden and to have lunch there. We had a table for 5, we ordered our drinks and we decided to have only starters (which would be more expensive than the main courses) because we had not a good experience before with their dried ribs and steaks. However, for our surprise they asked us to leave the table, because we could not sit there to eat only starters. I was completely blushed. I did not know what to say to my friends and family. Please, Maxwell's Restaurant, you need to study marketing to learn how to treat your consumers! Maxwell's Restaurant, NEVER MORE!
