The ambience is great. Feels like the high class Mexican restaurant it is. Great service, good food. I especially enjoyed the nachos and fajitas. It's a little tucked away but well worth the trip.

After we had a terrible starter at mooon café, we decided to order our main course here. We both took enchiladas..one with meat and the other without. Both tasted excellent! Since it was Wednesday we had 2 mojitos for the price of 1. The ambiance is more like European restaurants. We would definitely recommend to go!

I don't call myself a foodie. I'm average when it comes to cravings. I do have a knack for Mexican food since I'm from the west coast. Been in and out of cebu since Jan 2017 and I never miss a stop at Maya. Great simple selection of food. An array of tequila selections which is a haven for some.... More

Service very good, we were the first customers of the evening. Nice decor, although freaky masks on the wall. Recommended by the waiter that the fajitas were good for sharing. When they arrived there was certainly plenty of food but only served with 4 small fajitas!! Had to ask for more and we were charged for them. Best way to... More

We'd heard good things and thought we'd try it for ourselves. As others have said it was nice but pricey for cebu. They were very accommodating to my dietary needs though and I thank them for that! Really good guacamole.

Went to Maya with my wife....missing Mexican food when we previously lived in southwest Florida. We started off with what they considered Maya's best Margarita and sorry not even close to good Margarita...we then ordered the Fajita's (chicken) the chicken tasted good, but not enough of what Fajita's are famous for...the garnishments. The meal included 4 extremely small tortillas and... More

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.
