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 – 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.

Great Mexican place in Cebu

Good menu, food standard is great and they offer a wide range of tasty Mexican food. Tequila selection is also good. Weekends they tend to have live entertainment in the evenings after 10pm.

I'm a frequent customer and I must say I always enjoy my experience. Great food (burrito and quesadilla favorite) and ambiance. Parking is hard sometimes on the weekends. Time goes by fast when i'm here.

We had a great dining experience here... Yes a little pricier than your average Mexican but so worth it. Excellent service, food portions, flavor and the cocktails were great. It's in a really cool strip of bars and galleries too so you could kick on with date night just next door. Welllll worth a visit. We loved it! Wednesday night... More

Took my girlfriend here since she had never had Spanish rice, we got tacos & fajitas, everything was great. This was one of the few foreign foods in Cebu that lived up to what it's suppose to taste like, in fact I live in California which has a lot of Mexican food, this was among the best. Highly recommend

this is one of the places you can take your special one for diner, its expensive, large portions but in Cebu standards quite delicious. The wine list is restrictive though, the décor and ambience is unique and painstakingly done. Been there few times and always enjoyed fajitas>>

A beautiful restaurant. This has to be th nicest looking Mexican restaurant. And their tequila list...it's insane. The staff here are amazing, extremely professional. I didn't care much for their empanadas, they had a skin similar to cheap frozen Americanized Chinese egg-rolls. Their nachos were great, a glorious mountain of deliciousness lol. The beef fajita wasn't seasoned.. I think that... More

Food was excellent- we had their nachos, fajitas, quesadillas. Unfortunately avocados were not in season. Margarita and mojitos were also very good, and they had this great tasting beer whose name I forget! Staff extremely efficient and friendly. Atmosphere is great- perfect for dates or intimate conversations with friends. I expected nothing less than excellent, it being part of the... More
