I returned to Maya after an absence of several years, and was delighted to find that the restaurant has maintained its level of quality in all areas. I love Mexican food, and this is the only restaurant I've found in the country that serves authentic Mexican cuisine. I had an enormous burrito smothered in sauce and cheese, and added a... More

This is about my 5th time to Maya in the past few years. It's on my hit list every time I visit Cebu. The food is always sensational, the service is always good and they make a fabulous margarita.

Impeccable customer service by very attentive and courteous staff; they seem to guess or read your mind as to what you want next! Food is good, not your ordinary cantina food but Mexican haute cuisine. Try this place but be ready to splurge some cash or swipe a few plastics. Enjoying great Mexican food in this side of town is... More

The baby stroller was already on its way inside the restaurant the second our taxi stopped outside the restaurant. Amazing service! I ended up with the classic taco we know from EU, but it wasnt anything special. So i ordered a burito instad; it was huge! Amazing taste and well fitted with the tequila. They have a huge selection of... More

It has been over a year since we visited Maya as we reside in Karachi. We arrived on the spur of the moment. Warm and friendly welcome. Seated promptly and courteous service. Menu explained and the waiter made recommendations. All good. Cocktails excellent. Very happy. The areas to improve is the deserts are limited and the menus need reprinting as... More

I love Maya mexican restaurant. As of lately, the service hasn't been as great ever since they shifted their food stocks elsewhere. Before, the food came out quick and you can easily ask for the waiter for certain customizations. We still love the food though and the servers are always awesome. We've been here so many times that the staff... More

Such a chill place if you go there for some drinks & just have fun. Drinks are cold and the seats are comfortable. The music is good and not too loud that you can still talk. They have variety of good food and drinks.

Both my husband and I loved this place. We are both avid foodies and he is a pretty skilled amateur cook from South America, and every item we ordered definitely blew other top-class Mexican restaurants we've been to away. We had the steak tacos, pork enchiladas and a side of queso fundido with chips. The Angus beef used in the... More

Very hot inside but most places at Crossroads are hot. Drinks a little pricey but very well prepared. Salsa lessons evry once in a while but you still might want to bring sand to the beach. Music not too loud and good variety

Maya is a great find in Cebu. The Mexican food Is good. Myself and my boyfriend ordered a burrito( I had a veggie California style burrito and he has a beef New York style) my boyfriend loved his and I enjoyed mine as well. We both left stuffed and happy. But the service is what makes this place great honestly.... More

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.
