We stumbled on to this restaurant by accident, and what a pleasant surprise. Great food, very friendly and helpful service and wonderful ambiance. We did not realize how popular it must be until we left and noticed the many people waiting for a table.

I want to echo other glowing reviews of LA Chaya Maya! I was traveling alone and decided to give this place a shot- very glad I did. The service was excellent and very friendly. The crowd was a mix of locals and tourists alike. And...More

Tasty restaurant, with good local vibe. From the simple and cosy décor to the local women preparing the tortillas, this place will make you sample the real Yucatan lifestyle. Flavours are rich and the á la carte offer is varied enough. Good service!

They make their tortillas in house within the restaurant. Authentic Yucatan food. Employees very proud to work there. They do serve alcohol. We were there Saturday night and it was crowded. 30 minute wait...worth it. I don't believe they took reservations.

La Sopa de Lima is the best I tried in Yucatán, also la torta de cochinita pibil, definitely will return to this place. I tried it in la Casona and the other one that is around the corner, in both places the food is amazing

We loved this restaurant so much we went back a second time during our recent trip to Merida. I enjoyed the Pac Chuc on one visit, and a variety plate called "Taste of the Yucatan" on another visit. The margaritas are delicious too.
