Wife and I stopped in the TacoMaya the other day and had lunch. The Fish tacos were outstanding. If the rest of the food is this good you have a great future.....Dont fire the cook. :)

I hadn't been here in about a year. I'd heard the place had changed hands and since I was early to shoot some pictures of a home between Chelem and Chuburna, I stopped to answer the call of a hungry stomach. I arrived just in time. The place filled up a few minutes after I arrived. Despite being busy, the... More

While visiting my dad in nearby Progreso, he took me to Tacomaya twice in my trip and it was delicious! First time got the fish tacos which were probably the best I have ever had, 2nd time got the crispy breakfast quesadilla which was great too! Fun atmosphere, super clean bathrooms and good food. Highly recommend it!

My husband and I have visited Tacomaya on numerous occasions in the past several months. It's always a challege for me to order because EVERYTHING is phenomenal! Belinda and Trevor are entertaining and very personable. The open-aired dining area is remarkable - I love it. If anyone walks away disappointed at Tacomaya, it's their own fault. The fish tacos are... More

When you visit a place like Chelem Yucatan, two blocks from a beautiful beach, you kind of expect a laid back place to chow down on some awesome food. We found it at Taco Maya! We have been there twice in the short time we have been staying here and we will definitely be back again. The Mexicana breakfast is... More

The only thing I like in the menu is the Torta Cubana, but i've tried better ones. What I dislike about this place is that they don't sell beer and the customers are allowed to smoke, so there I am trying to eat my Torta Cubana with french fries and a lemonade, and the customer next to me doesn't even...

This place is awesome! We come from Merida every Wednesday just to eat at this fun place and visit with the friendly owners, Belinda and Trevor. You can't get better food anywhere in this part of the peninsula. The chimi and fish tacos rock. Go, you won't be disappointed

Jimmy Buffet would have loved this place, though the food is a several notches better than any funky beach hangout where you might expect to find him. Intelligent, imaginative, honest food, served up by nice people who love where they are and what they do. Maybe they don't hit every dish out of the park every day for every customer's... More

Enjoyed the Cuban sandwich, fries are very good, the fish tacos were average. Service is very good. Prices are pretty much as expected. Beer, wine or liquor not available. The owners allow smoking at certain tables and given that the eating area is small and diners are in close proximity to each other this is very much a negative for... More
