Best lechon in Boracay

One of my favourite restaurants in Boracay. The lechon there is the best in Boracay. Excellent service too.

Reviews about the food are avcurate but the service is really poor. The servers are just talking to eat other ignoring some of the customers. And they dont have service water, you have to pay 40php or 1 USD for a bottle of water which should be readily available in almost all restaurants.

We have been to a lot of restaurants in boracay and this has been one of the best. Currently here drinking beers and had some delicious nachos. Customer service great and the views are lovely. If you are a lover of Mexican food definitely a must visit.

Came for lunch the day after trying there for dinner and finding they were closed for staff team building and party on a national holiday (personally think it's nice they do that for their staff) Had papaya juice and the Baja Tacos...both were really delicious. I would recommend not having a heavy juice as the Tacos were super generous portions... More

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...
