We stayed at the Hotel Aventura Mexicana and sampled the Mayan Bistro's lunch & drink menus. I ordered the chicken burrito and my husband had the beef burrito. The chicken was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and our meals were filling and overall delicious. The bartender makes a mean house margarita and the atmosphere is cozy and chic. Loved this restaurant!... More

We traveled to Playa last week, and based upon Tripadvisor reviews we decided to try out the Mayan Bistro and we were glad we did. Even if the food was just average (it was excellent) it would be worth it to eat here purely because of the service. I had read about Nicholas and Gabby before, and they were better... More

We stayed at the hotel and didn't get the AI, but it would have been worth it. Their continental breakfast was just ok, but their real prepared meals were fantastic. We shared the best shrimp tacos for lunch one day- Great!, For dinner another night, wife had Tequila shrimp, and I had Arrachera. Sides of spinach mashed potatoes and grilled... More

We go to the Mayan Bistro every time we are in Playa del Carmen. The menu varies for dinner depending on the fresh finds of the day. Always a pleasant surprise. Great international food.

We had such a lovely family evening with our 3 daughters at the Mayan bistro. We were immediately welcomed by Nicholas, the waiter, who made our children feel like princesses all night, & helped them to practice their Spanish. Our food was perfect too - our first venture into Mayan cuisine. The girls were brought complementary ice creams at the... More
