Mayan Cafe excels in all the important areas of dining pleasure. "Cafe" is somewhat a misnomer, Mayan is so locally supportive, delicious, interesting and accommodating. Owner Bruce Ucan scouts the farmers markets and creates dishes so imaginative with his findings, Mayan is a flavor sensation!

The menu is very unique and not at all TexMex. Chef Bruce is creative and his dishes as pretty as they are tasty. We were there last week and I had an excellent rabbit dish, while my wife loved the salmon.

The scallop appetizer was wonderful and i could have definitely had a couple of them for dinner.

One of my favorite restaurants in Louisville

Cannot understate how much I love this restaurant...fresh local ingredients - creative combinations. My favorite is the Cochinita Pibil...slow roasted pork on a pim tortilla filled with beans and goat cheese with roasted lima beans. Their fried plantains are perfect. Special appetizers are always a treat. One of my favorite restaurants on the planet, not just in Louisville.
