After living in Latin America for some years, I expected Maya Bar and Grill, located just across the street from the Radisson Plaza where I stayed, to be phony and plastic. It is anything but. Painted brick walls, wooden/leather chairs, mix of reggeaton and long forgotten latin heroes on the stereo teleports you out of Finland and leaves you in... More

Enjoyed a nice selection of Tapas followed by a lovely salad. Service very friendly. Not a bad option for a casual meal with friends. Price pretty good for the area.

Simple and exquicito: Imagine the best smoked salmon in the world (Finland) cooked by a Mexican chef, accompanied by a sauvignon blanc. The service is outstanding and friendly. Overlooking the square ... anything else?

Overpriced (though that is common for restaurants in Helsinki)Tiny portions sizes. Terrible service, hard to get the waiters' attention. Beautiful food, the only upside!

We were group of 10, of which several were vegetarians: Maya has rather nice menu, also for veggies. Service friendly and quite quick, nice tasty cocktails.

I really enjoyed my stay. I had a good cocktail, terrific fajitas and a corona. Prices are very good compared to the rest of Helsinki. Nice waiters. Free bottle of water with your food.

Before going to Helsinki on a day-trip we did our homework and found this South-American-sounding restaurant as our lunch place. I took fajitas with char-grilled fillet of beef. The meat was extraordinary, as was the guacamole, bean paste, tomato sauce and grilled vegetables. The portion was abundant and I was perfectly happy with my choice. My husband took habanero marinated... More

Ok food, expencive, good location in the centrum... Everything is ok but price of the meals sets the goal higher. Quality is close to the standard chain restaurants. Also the could be more staff working because sometimes you have to wait quite a long time.

I've been to Maya a handful of times and every time the food has been excellent, much better than in any of the cheaper places that sell Mexican style or texmex food. The salads are great and there are several vegetarian alternatives even for people like me who can't really eat gluten (so no tortillas!) A nice place but usually... More

Maya is centrally located close to the railway stadion and opposite Radisson hotel. I had a dinner there with friends and was happy to find a new and reasonably priced nice restaurant in Helsinki. Food was really delicious and of good quality, service just great and interior very relaxed. Planning a new visit there in a near future!
