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.

Cozy ambiance, tasty Mex food touched with Asian flavor, hip music played live from a cool DJ, finished the dinner with a great spirit mixed drink

It was a pleasant dinner date =)

“A piece of Mexican Cuisine in Cebu”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

There is nothing to dislike (except for the occasional hangover from too much patron tequila or margaritas!) about this place. From the interior to the ambiance and the food, you'd feel like you were really transported to that place in Mexico or southern Americas .... Try the local version of the crispy pork, and the carnitas chimichangas with ice cold beer or frozen margarita and you'd immediately know what I'm talking about....

“I kept waiting on the "Large Portions"”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

I grew up in Mexico City. I'm Mexican. There's no authentic Mexican Food at Maya. What they serve is a poor excuse for Tex Mex. Lots of Glitz and Glamor and Showbiz. Most of the Tequilas they exhibit are not from the town of Tequila. Tequila should be from the town of Tequila. Just as Champagne is from Champagne. Who are all these folks saying "Best in Cebu"? I took two other Mexicans and a Texan with me, thumbs down all around. And I got stuck with a BIG check. There's only one real place in the Cebu Area. Banana Moon Cantina in Mactan. No Showbiz. Great Food.
