STUNNING: The view from the Max Beach restaurant, which is to be newly updated for April

MUCH-loved Costa del Sol restaurant Max Beach has been taken over by the Metro Group.

The much-loved eatery at Playa Riviera on Mijas Costa is to be souped up just in time for summertime.

Max Beach is in good company with the Metro Group, which also own Jacks Smokehouse, Mumtaz and Metro Italiano Ristorante.

Metro Group Executive Chef Lawrence Otterburn joins forces with new Head Chef, Geoffrey Sacchi from Nikki Beach in the takeover.

But the excitement does not end there.

Max Fitness is a new purpose-built gym on the upper level of the site.

“ Picture yourself working out while gazing across the Mediterranean waters,” a Metro Group spokesperson said.

If that wasn’t enough, the gym will also be headed up by David Segorbe, World Powerlifting Champion and world record holder in deadweight.

All-in-all, the updated venue now boasts a sushi bar, 25-metre pool, a cocktail bar and large terraces with plenty of sunbeds.

It is due to open in April of this year.
