Best Fish Tacos on the island!!!

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.

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

We had dinner and lunch at Mayas. Teh restaurant is located by the beach. The mexican food is very good. We tried ceviche, mahi tosdata, mahi burritto. The cocktails are good as well. I recommend the calamansi juice with the sunset.

Had a dinner here, I tried its fish cake and classic ground beef burrito, both were delicious. Also the mango fruit shake and green mango fruit shake they serve are very good. The only setback is serving speed of food is a little bit slow.

Having read the reviews here decided to give it a try. Situated right on the beach, but at the quieter end, which made a nice change. We sat upstairs overlooking the beach and sea.

As we were walking along White Beach, one of the staff members from Mayas pulled us in. This is usually a turnoff for me, and I typically avoid places when they call to passersby. We were so hungry, however, that we stayed - and boy, am I glad we did! The three of us split three different entrees - all... More

A wide selection including carvery made the buffet a very nice experience. On top of that, everything was freshly and well made. Unfortunately buffet is only available 10 - 12 times a year at special occasions. We were Lucky enough to pass by on Xmas day.
