Do the chefs challenge, he is iron chef level. Everything was great but that's where it all shines. I detest olives but he made an olive and steak dish that I couldn't get enough of.

“Not just a hotel restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

The staff was personable and genuinely helpful. The food was remarkable for a hotel restaurant in any location, any city. We had a couple meals here and each time I thought, "Man, this place should be on 5th Avenue."

Very cozy ambience, awesome mexican food and a very kind service. Off the tourism mile, it offers everything you'd wish for a proper dinner with your friends, your date or whatever :)

The food is so yummy and the waitstaff are friendly. The a la plancha fish with spinach is to die for. I sure do miss the food!

“Tasty food at reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

If you want something simple and inexpensive, away from the main hustle and bustle of 5th Ave, Mayan Bistro is a perfect place to go. We ate their twice for lunch and once for dinner, and weren't disappointed. Tasty Mexican cuisine, pleasant setting, good value for money.
