“Awesome place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Stayed at the aventura Mexicana where the restaurant is located. The location is perfect, it's a nice quiet place right off of 5th avenue. The food is really good and the service was great. The pricing was about average compared to other restaurants on 5th, but it was definitely more calm than the other restaurants. Overall it was great!!!

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food was delicious and quite big portions. We had breakfast and dinner there. The staff was nice and made sure we enjoyed our meals. Try every seafood dish on the menu!

“Great food, service and price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We ate here throughout our trip as we'd purchased the all-inclusive package from the hotel. We tried something different from the menu each meal and were never disappointed. Even the pizza was amazing! The chicken mole was spot on. The fish tacos were great. I had three or four seafood dishes and they were all top notch.

“Absolutely Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The Mayan Bistro did not disappoint at all! The staff was exceptional. They were so friendly! The menu has so much to choose from. We ate every meal (except for one- we were snorkeling in Cozumel that day) at this place for 6 days. The food is fresh and you can see the chefs working very hard to create a wonderful dinner. It really is the best environment for anyone. We saw many different kinds of people enjoying themselves. The lunch items are very good. I really liked the shrimp tacos! Since we had the VIP package for this place, we decided to experience as many different things as we could. The staff was ALWAYS pleasant and efficient. Some of my favorite memories of this vacation include the Mayan Bistro.

“Wonderful and Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We spent last week in Paya Del Carmen and stayed at the Hotel Aventura Mexicana. We were in the Mayan Bistro for breakfast and as often as we could during the day, and definitely at night for dinner and drinks. It has areally nice atmosphere if you want a Happy Hour and if you don't, you can find a table for a romantic dinner as well.
We fell in love with this quaint and delightful setting, and would recommend it to anyone single, or married and with children. The cater for everyone, and have the holtel sectioned, so that the families have their own pool, and then the single peopple have theirs to mingle and chat.
We will most certainly be visiting again. The service was outstanding.
