This is a mexican restaurant with some class. Service is absolutely excellent, food is fantastic (I always go for the fajitas and extra guacamole made at the table). They have a live band (not always singing mexican songs but they're good anyway). Get a table on the terrace outside overlooking the garden.

I'm usually one for choosing to venture away from the place I'm actually staying in but an early morn check in mixed with weariness forced me to stay on complex. So on wandering around the grounds of LRM chanced upon the interesting structure of Maya with its roof top bar overlooking the ocean.Lunch was in full swing yet the manager still found time to show us around and allow us to peruse the full menu, we didn't hesitate to book for later that night and so glad we did!The service was incredibly attentive and professional ..the food superb and it by far exceeded our expectations. Not being particularly drawn to Mexican cuisine this was an education. A table on the terrace on a beautifully warm evening is highly recommended, with an excellent live band all makes for a memorable evening Top marks to Maya, a real find.

Set in Le Royal Meridien this restaurant is a hidden gem! Diverse and exciting Mexican cuisine and warm and attentive service.

Very good standard and value for money and would certainly recommend and would visit again ourselves!

Great atmosphere here with a band playing but they were just at the perfect sound level to be entertaining if you wanted to listen but quiet if you wanted to talk. We sat outside overlooking the grounds and beach of the hotel, a beautiful setting. Food was good especially the freshly made guac at your table!! Could have just had that all night!

Wine is greatly overpriced but we were on holiday! And it's Dubai where alcohol is not good value anyway. A tip, have margaritas in the bar upstairs from from 6 on its terrace and watch the sun set, so nice!

We had an outdoor table facing the sea listening to a live mexican band...great start to the night. We shared the beef nachos to start with which were excellent. Our mains were steak fajita (3), chicken fajita(1) which were absolutely fantastic. The best fajita i have ever had.
There is a beautiful outdoor bar and rooftop bar for pre and after dinner drinks. This place is a gem and a must visit.
I would advise booking in advance as it was full the night we were in.
