We enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner at the Maya Grill. This restaurant appears to be off the radar as we had no trouble securing a last minute reservation that same afternoon for dinner that evening. The Coronado Springs resort is fairly isolated- not connected via monorail or walking path to any theme park, hence the ease of reservation.
The food was fantastic- a nice change of pace from typical American fare- although they also offer "north of the border" selections if that suits your mood. Our 6 year old daughter ordered the beef tacos and found the meat to be a little on the spicy side. My husband and I both enjoyed the "Three Amigos" Platter; a dinner plate with beef, chicken, and cheese enchiladas, served with rice, beans and corn soufflé. I think we would have licked the plates clean if we weren't saving room for dessert. My husband enjoyed the coconut flan whereas I tried one of their mini dessert cups- chocolate and peanut butter mousse. Not at all disappointed.
The evening we were there they had a man playing live music on a guitar. Set the perfect atmosphere. The music he played was in the Latin style, but in interpreted and incorporated many contemporary songs into his set. It made the music recognizable, yet authentic to the theme of the location at the same time.
In my opinion, the best part about this restaurant is the fact that it is at the isolated Coronado Springs Resort. This is a very large resort, but well spaced out with a very serene walking path throughout. It lacks the hustle and bustle of the Magic Kingdom or Epcot Area resorts. Before leaving the restaurant I asked the server for a cup of coffee to go and we enjoyed a pleasant after dinner stroll around the resort before heading home.
