Regular here. Breakfast right up there, French toast with berries and maple syrup being my favourite. Coffee is top notch and if I feel healthy their smoothies and juices are fantastic. Luca and Sasha are great lads and the service is always good. Keep it up guys.

Had breakfast here recently. Service wasn't great, one dish came ages before the rest, one had to be sent back as it wasn't want was asked for and the last came with warm bread instead of toast that had to be sent back. Added to the fact that it is overpriced (€3 for a can of coke) means I won't... More

Just been to lunch with a friend from work.. Really nice food that offers good value whilst not compromising on taste. Like the fact they change the menu frequently.

The food is of top quality, it is excellent value, simple décor , good background music that has staff input without dominating proceedings, friendly and welcoming staff. There is no pretentiousness, just personality. This can put off some customers, like one other review I read, but if they want slick " have a nice day" patronising service this is not... More

We ate here the day we arrived in Dublin, tired and jet lagged. Very nice staff and quick service. The soup was well seasoned and hot. The salads were large and delicious!

Maia Restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we dined there our first night when jetlagged and cranky. The service was fabulous and the food well cooked, well presented and tasty. It was a busy place and from what I could see, the service very good. We liked it so much we made another stop there on our last night... More

This fantastic little restaurant nestled away in Ballsbridge is a great place for a leisurely lunch. I've been there a numbers of times over the past few weeks and the food is consistently really good, especially the house specials. It's authentic Italian food and the head guy there is authentic Italian with a twist, you'll never know what manner of... More

I initially went here on recommendation and have been back a few times since because of the service and the food! The staff here are very friendly and pleasant and, even though I think this was only my 3rd visit, said it was 'nice to see me again'. Its lovely to feel valued and remembered and I think this personal... More

I have eaten at Maia on three separate occasions and can honestly say that each time was a treat. The food is excellent, the price (at least at lunchtime) is extremely low (approx. a tenner), and the service friendly. That is all
