Nice fajitas

I have been here several times across past few years. Actually it was the place of my encounter with "real" Mexican food. The fajitas is always my favourite here. Lively atmosphere and quite authentic Mexican food (with reference to the food I had in my Jalisco trip last year)

Delicious margaritas, shrimp in delicious garlic sauce and a wonderful flan. The staff were very attentive, with good suggestions. The Owner was kind and friendly and the musician playing the guitar sang beautifully and with heart. It was a wonderful experience.

Went to the restaurant with a group of 9. Traditional "Mexican" favorites with some more gringo type menu items. Overall the food was good but not great. The service was very good for a group and the food was all served hot which is alway a plus. The homemade guacamole was very good, the desserts were weak. Overall the experience... More

We had a good time visiting the Maya Cafe during my stay in Fishkill. The food was good, the service was good, and the overall restaurant was a great place to visit and watch a game or just enjoy the atmosphere. I would visit again as I enjoyed my visit to the Maya Cafe.

I'll start this review with a fun fact: I am from California. That being said, it stands to reason that I have had my fair share of Mexican food over the years. Being of Mexican heritage and having an incredible chef for a mother, I grew up knowing VERY good Mexican food. In my time in New York, we've done... More

Every time I am in the area I MUST eat here. I have been to many Mexican Restaurants but this is my favorite. I love the atmosphere, the staff and most of all the flavorful food. Today I had a steak salad in a taco shell-delicious! Plus there prices are very reasonable.

We went as a group of family members. We were told we had to arrive at 5 sharp to make room for party arriving after us. It was $28.75 per head family style. Plate of appetizers family style but was not nearly enough. Then we got a plate with rice, small burrito and beans. We were told family style but... More

This is my 2nd review of Maya Cafe this year. I ate year many times while in town on business. The food is incredible. The staff is awesone. There are several authentic Mayan dishes on the menu. I highly recommend the poc chuc. Hands down my favorite place to eat in Fishkill.

Always enjoy this place. The food is always fresh & authentic, good size portions, & fun surroundings. Awesome margaritas too! Especially love the quacamole & fish tacos. Service is excellent & servers are helpful. Music makes it that much more enjoyable. We always have a great time here.
