From the menu you can find quite a lot of local choices, including the Mayas' Lechon Kawali. It's deep fried pork belly 🐷 in which made to perfect, extremely crispy on outlay and juicy inside, perfect to come with beer 🍻 with strong favour.

We came to Mayas twice during our 10-day vacation in Boracay. I would have come back another time, but I only found out about Mayas half-way through our vacation. There were 8 of for dinner on the beach. Our waiter, MON, is the one of the best on the island (ask for him). The food selection, taste and quality is... More

Staff are super nice, price is white beach standard (expensive but not ridiculous). We had the famous Lechon Kawali, black squid dish and taro leaves with coconut milk one. So delicious! Strongly recommend if u want some good filipino food at White beach

We visited this restaurant 3 times during an 11 night stay on Boracay. Amazing food and welcoming/friendly staff. If you miss this restaurant you will miss an outstanding experience.

This resto accommodated us even we went there a little before 10pm :) the staff is very friendly and they even walked us through the best food in their menu! :) the lechon kawali here by far is the "healthiest" that I have tried :) the fatty layer is very very thin :) we also tried the baby black squid...

There were only 2 other tables with customers - but the servers were not at all welcoming and service was slow and generally poor. Food was mediocre - do not... More

We had two meals at the above and the food was great. The service by our waiter (Mon) was very professional on advising us about what was suitable to our likes. Would recommend a visit here. Value for money.
