Went back another two times since our first visit and it just got better each time. Food great , portions large, service first class (Mons was without doubt the best waiter we had during our 8 week stay ) and happy hour upto 8pm serving great cocktails. Never felt rushed and staff really really helpful. Well done Mayas especially Mon... More

I kept looking for Jony's restaurant to rate but I kept getting the resort. I hope this is it though, since it says it's right across from the Jony's resort. My second time here. First time was Dec of 2014 with the whole family. And second time was today. I love the view, the food is great especially the lechon... More

I am giving this a 50/50 review, the reason as per the title. I went once and the first time was good, went the second and it was average. If you are reading this and unsure then i think you should still try it as the average wasn't bad but just wasn't as good as the first time. Price, wasn't... More

This restaurant is attached to Joni’s Beach Resort. It is located across the busy road from the hotel and is on the beach. It is possible to sit at a table on the beach or inside the restaurant. Tables at the front of the upper level of the restaurant have good views. Those on the beach enable you to be... More

We went here on our first trip to Boracay 3 years ago and on our return trip this year Mayas was on the top of our list of places to eat. We decided to save it till our last evening and it certainly didn't disappoint. We chose to sit on the top floor so we could look out over the... More

I love this place! The food was excellent and price worthy. The location is great, just by the beach but not crowded. Before I left the island after 11 days vacation, I had to come back. Best food I had in Boracay!

Good service, good food, good margaritas, good price! A nice change from all the grilled seafood and barbecues that is almost overwhelming. We dined on one of the tables set up on the beach. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The tables set apart enough to allow privacy and personal space. It was clean and the staff were very efficient.... More

I usually don't like returning to the same restaurant while on vacation, but couldn't stop myself from returning to Mayas and ordering the same thing again. The food in Boracay was really good, but Mayas was excellent! Friends ate at Mayas last week and returned with rave reviews as well. You can sit at tables on the beach in the... More

Normally we steer clear of Mexican food in Asian countries -- we're from California and so our standards are high. Mayas gets Mexican food. The spices were right on. The tortillas delicious. The only downside on our 2nd visit (in one week!) was no avocados, so no guacamole. Mexican food aside, they also do Filipino food well. And the drinks... More
