Very unique dishes and they are all so good! Gets very busy on weekends so you need to make a reservation in advance or you will have to eat at the bar or wait until late to eat. One of my favorite restaurants in Norfolk!

Luna Maya offers a lively atmosphere with great energy. It is noisy, but not overly distracting. The crowd is of mixed age with limited children on our Saturday night outing.
We waited about 30 minutes for our table at around 8pm. Leaving us plenty of time to start with drinks from the bar!
Pomegranate margaritas were good, not too sweet nor a strong tequila taste. Top shelf margaritas are just that, LOTS if tequila for your money.
The guac and queso will be part of our evening from here on out.
The fish tacos were great, enchiladas were good. Burritos were not ordered as we have heard mixed reviews.
All in all, great evening out and we will be back! The bar menu is too enticing and we cannot pass up the queso!

Great food for Norfolk. Restaurant can often be very crowded--but even if you have to wait, it is well worth it. The food is reasonably priced for the most part.

After a friend, time and time again, advised me to go, i finally visited this spot. The ambience is swank, service is top notch and the food is incredible, unique and a great value. I highly recommend the guacamole- it is fresh and tastes nothing like what you buy from a store. The chips that come with are quite salty which plays perfectly against the sweet creamy, fresh taste of the guac. The chips are usually warm too, which again contrasts well with cool freshness of the guacamole. For entree i strongly recommend the tamale. The beef has an unbelievably succulent, braised taste that prepare your tastebuds for the soft, warm, sweet corn tamale/cake over which it is served. The soft, yogurt like sour cream comes in and clears the palate to perfection. As if the taste were not good enough, the chef does a marvelous job of presentation with the tamales being set within a corn husk. I cannot say enough about this dish. For $13 the value is unreal. It is the kind of dish that leaves you unable to believe it was the same price as an entree at a chain. For a unique drink i recommend the caipirinha de brazil; the margaritas are also outstanding. The food and prices are perfect for the start of a night out with friends. I have been here about 20 times since i finally decided to go about 3 years ago. My only regret is not going here sooner.

Good prices, at the end of Colley in Ghent. Only complaint - very noisy because in a very old open building.
