We asked our taxi driver which restaurant we should try for authentic Yucatán cuisine and he suggested La Chaya Maya. We visited on our first night, along with pretty much every tourist in Mérida. The restaurant was packed and we had to wait for a...More

Walking distance from our hotel (central historic district). This place is cozy, family friendly and the food is delicious. Very affordable. We loved eating here. Try the poc chuc.

A beautiful traditional Yucatanese building tables around a garden and some inside too. The service was professional and costs mid price. Food was very good worth a visit.

I think that La Chaya Maya is one of the best yucatecan restaurant in Merida. Every time that I come to visit Merida I always eat there. I recomend the Pan de Cazon and for dessert the sweet papaya with cheese.

We'd been led to believe that Chaya Maya was one of the best places in Mérida for traditional Yucatecan food, so went with very high expectations. We were disappointed. Granting that restaurants sometimes find it hard to deal with a large group (which we were)...More
