“Great food and service”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Found this one on tripadvisor and decided to try it based on the reviews. It was an easy walk from where we were staying at the Peregrina Condos. We are a family of 6 with a couple of kids who are picky eaters. There was a variety of food on the menu so everyone found something. I had the chicken kebab with spinach mashed potatoes which was excellent. The tiramisu was also excellent. Chris is the manager (not the owner) and he checked in with us a couple of times to make sure that everything was OK. Our waitress was also excellent. There are never cast-iron guarantees with restaurants because everyone's experiences differ depending on various factors but I got the sense that it would be hard to go wrong with this place.

“Authentic flavors”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed across the street from Mayan Bistro at Hacienda Paradise and just went in one night out of convenience. What a treat! Our waitress was terrific and gave us good recommendations based on our inquiries. The flavors were very specific and fresh! The owner, Christopher, is very friendly and will stop by to make you feel at home. It was definitely the most expensive meal we had in Mexico, though.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Everything about The Mayan Bistro was amazing. My husband and I stayed at Hotel Aventura Mexicana and being VIP at the Mayan Bistro was the best part. We stayed for 5 nights and chose to add on the VIP package for 3 nights and use the other 2 days to try others restaurants around Playa. We ended up eating dinner at the Mayan Bistro both nights because it was so good. The service was top notch and the food was out of this world!
