If you want good food with good ambiance then this is definitely a great place to dine! The staff are very nice and accomodating and if you just want a romantic dinner then the 2nd floor is a good spot as well. Foods are serve well and price is just right. We got their Ribs and Salmon fish when we... More

Our last night/dinner in Cebu was spent enjoying drinks, food and dancing at Maya, the Mexican resto of choice for the young Cebuanos. We came at just the right time to be offered a corner table on the 2nd floor. First, have to commend the staff. Everyone was most accommodating, friendly and efficient. We were immediately offered their signature margarita... More

Exceptionally fresh and diverse Mexican menu. We came as alarge group (12 people), and the staff handled everything wonderfully! Food was amazing! Each of us sampled and shared different types of tacos, and no one was dissapointed! The nachos are the size of a small house, so be sure to come with an appetite! We shared a wonderful meal in...

We visited with our friends who have recently moved to Cebu. This is their favorite place to bring visitors and we are ready to go back!!!! The taco plates come with three mini tacos that will not disappoint... The Asada with corn tortillas were my favorite. Appetizers were tasty, everyone's food was perfect. Service was fantastic, and the drinks complimented... More

Maya is still one of my favorites here in Cebu. This is part of my "must eat" list in Cebu. Since trying this back in 2010, we have been coming back here regularly whether to eat or drink. We love their crispy pork belly. The skin is cooked well that it gives it a "chicharon" feel. We also like their... More

a little "style over substance" for me, lovely decor and friendly staff but the food took an age to arrive and was not as impressive as the concept itself. My burrito was a large overly soggy affair and the nachos were dry and ill proportioned for me. it is a cool place though, the mojitos need a bit of work,... More

Everything about this place is great. The ambiance is fantastic; it feels like a Mexican apothecary/dungeon. We ordered the Nachos, which were delicious and loaded with toppings. The chips were crisp, and didn't feel like the ready-made ones available at the grocery. Their signature Margarita was also really nice and tart, although I would have liked it to be stronger....

Description
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.
