Description: Maya was created to be a casual restaurant and tequila lounge: laid back and subtle, with efficient service and reasonably priced. The sophisticated yet casual allure of Maya seamlessly blends old world charm with modern elegance. Succulent aromas from the kitchen mix tradition and ingenuity while setting the stage for your dining pleasure. Maya also has the largest selection of 100% pure agave tequilas in the country, which in addition to our premium house pours are sure to charm.Maya is committed to the timeless tradition of Mexican food โ€“ utilizing countless ingredients and dishes, and perhaps most importantly, the rich family tradition of preparation, which is done by hand using the freshest local ingredients that are regionally available. By embracing both Mexican tradition and local sensibility, we offer a creatively classic cuisine that unites well-known Mexican street food from the stalls of Mexico City and family dishes from the coast of the Mayan Riviera and the inventiveness of the Hispanic American communities of California and the American Southwest.

We really looked forward to this meal and mostly everything tasted wonderful. Cocktails especially were lovely! Time came when we received our quesadilla and everyone agreed it was the least favorite. The taste was slightly off and we just assumed it didn't taste up to par of our standard. An hour after the meal I began to sweat and feel... More

This restaurant has the best Mexican food I have found in Cebu. You must try the Brisket Tacos. I could not get enough of them at 3 per order so I had to eat 2 orders. The menu is full of other Mexican delicacies but you need to try it yourself otherwise this review would be as long as an... More

The serving sizes are large, they have 3 styles of burrito, baked, fried and fresh tortilla, i had the fried, asada burrito and would recommend it. One thing to know, the food id a little spicy so if you don't want... More

Maya Mexican Restaurant was one of our first forays in our foodie adventures. I have always been curious about Crossroads, and I had this longing for some Mexican foodie, and so off we went - my sister and I to Maya Mexican Restaurant in Crossroads. Actually Maya is not your average restaurant. There is nothing average about the tasteful design... More

It's a great restaurant but not up to my expectation or maybe I expected a lot. It has a great ambiance with very helpful staff. It also has great food. The serving portions are smaller than average compared to its cost. I would still want to dine here though.

The decor of this restaurant is quite unique. Outside has enormous chandeliers and very interesting masks on the walls. The service is friendly and efficient and the background music was pleasant. The food is some of the best I have tasted in Cebu. I had Californian Enchiladas, which were superb. The Mojitos are also worth ordering. All of the party... More

I liked the food and service of this restaurant - we had California style burrito. Impressive interiors. I was bit disappointed on their leche flan - the serving was good for two but it was too pricey, perhaps that's why it wasn't listed in the menu?
