“Hidden Gem at WDW”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

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.

“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had a great time at Maya Grill. The food was great and the margaritas were to die for (try the mango blueberry basil margarita!!). We shared the guacamole to start, really good, we would have preferred it to be a little more spicy but it was fresh and chunky so no complaints. The fajitas were also very good. The service was great. To top it off, an amazing guitar player played covers of amazing music, that was a highlight!

“Good Latin Food”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

The food was very good. However, I would not call it "Mexican food". I believe it is more of a "Tex Mex" style food. Great service.

“Very good”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Just got back from a trip to Disney and one of the nights we ate at maya grill in Coronado springs. The food was very good, authentic tex mex and the service was good too. It's a little pricey but hey. It's disney right? We even cancelled our sons meal as he said he wasn't hungry anymore after eating some appetizers and they were very accommodating. All in all a good experience and I would recommend you try this restaurant while at Disney.
