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.

“Food still fine but,...”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Nothing to complain the foods, but something happened what made me surpriced. We were sitting outside on the veranda and while visited smoking on the main entrance our partly used vine botlle was dissapeared. I was asking where it is and our waitress told it was empty and taken away when we were out of the table. Why? Even it is empty it should stay on the table as long as we required. That was weird.

“An ambience with good mojitos to match!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

They have an extensive list of tequillas! Thats a start! :)
The restaurant has a nice buzz with a nice second floor seating. The staff was very courteous and attentive all throughout the entire time we were there. Ended up going to the place twice during our stay in cebu. It has a good crowd with decent Mexican food. Its a nice place to unwind over a weekend.

“Never fails to impress !”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We visit Cebu from Sydney at least twice a year and over the past few years Maya has always been a place that we visit regularly when in town.
Why ? The food is consistently good, the wine list is is interesting, the atmosphere is now and last but not least the staff are the best. We love the empanadas, the 1924 salad, the Pesce Vera cruz and the sublime carnitas. This year I was lucky enough to host my birthday at Maya and it was superb. The staff are always so welcoming and make sure that each visit is special. The man who leads this great team Edwin deserves special mention. Well done guys, see you in December !

“Great Mexican food in Cebu”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Maya Mexican Restaurant in Cebu is like going into a Mexican House of Blues. We started with apetizers and I suggest the Nachos (feeds 3-4 ppl) they have 6 different salsas that come with it. The chili con queso was great and the chips are thin and warm. The avocado dip was great with fresh avocados. The Margaritas are great better than the Mojitos (too much mint). The tortillas are not all that great they are tiny maybe the size of your palm and not homemade like they said. The service was great the management team is wonderful. Our server did not know too much English and we had to repeat several times. The main course was chicken fajitas which were good but needed a little bit more cumin/garlic. If your in Cebu and want some Mexican food I would highly suggest Maya's
