“Varied menu choices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This restaurant is located at Jonys Beach Resort at Station 1 and as it was close by our hotel we thought we would give it a try. It has dining on the ground floor and on their balcony. The reviews were also good.

I dined here with my wife and we had lovely ground floor candlelit table overlooking the beach. As we dined a little later in the night it was high tide so the water came right up to the restaurant.

The restaurant has a varied and large menu which includes Mexican, Filipino, Western, Italian and many other cuisines. Something for everyone. I was a bit worried that as the menu was so varied and large could they execute all the cuisines well.

I had corn chips and dip as a starter and my main was Burritos. My wife had the Kare Kare. All meals were delicious, ambiance more than fantastic and the wait staff were very good.

Great spot to have a meal.

“Recommended - I would go again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We had dinner here last night after wandering up and down to find somewhere with ambience, good views, good food and for a decent price. This place actually seemed to tick every box, with a superb menu offering and the food being fantastic! The service was also the best we have encountered here. I would highly recommend.

“So So”

I had the weng-weng pitcher that was a watered down, chicken adobo that was just ok. The garlic rice was delicious though! It was a great spot to people watch.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

My family and I had dinner here and we enjoyed it very much.

It was an unexpected drop in dinner at Mayas as we were heading towards another resturant which was unfortunately closed for a wedding.

Luckily though Mayas was a lovely place to eat and the food was very tasty.

The service was quick efficent and friendly.

The price was very good.

I would definately come back.

“Solid Food, Great Tunes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

This was the first place we ate on Boracay & it set the bar high. Firstly the music...a chilled soundtrack of downtempo house music that kept us grooving through our meal. We expected to find more of this on the island but cheesy pop & acoustic covers are sadly the standard.

Food is mostly great. I'm from California, home of top notch Mexican/Mexican fusion food & the mahi mahi burrito would be a total hit here. We came back for it a second time. And the shakes, oh the SHAKES! The green mango was a new taste sensation for us, a perfect mix of sour & sweet & though huge, was slurped down in about 5 minutes. The choco-peanut butter shake was unreal, served with runny swirls of chocolate sauce. Could definitely stand up at a top American diner. There were a few weaker menu items but enough yummy stuff to keep us enthused.

The space is clean & modern with pops of bright red. Open air & beach-facing on classier Station 1. Lovely, professional staff.
