After years of being aware of this place, the opportunity to visit finally came. It was worth the wait! Beyond any shadow of doubt, it is one of the jewels in the crown of Ghent eateries, adding serious weight to the words unique and authentic. As you walk in, the main dining area is a wide open, welcoming space with... More

So, our son and daughter-in-law took us to the new location of Luna Maya last evening for dinner...an early one...got there at about 5:15pm on a Saturday evening with a party of seven. Good thing we were early as tables filled up fast. Speaking of fast, this is not a fast food restaurant, so expect a bit of time between... More

drinks are good, and food is better! Always get the guacamole, regular or spicy, and save somme to go with your entree. Luna Maya salads are great, as are the quesadillas

Cool place nice bar didn't eat but had a few drinks. God price on drinks and they taste great. Beers are fairly priced while the mix drinks where a little on the high side but still not to bad.

Luna Maya's is consistently excellent! Service begins an incredible experience. Mango mojitos and caprenahs are our beverages of choice. A must is the salsa and guac. We also order the house made queso. The queso is spicy and creamy unlike the typical North American version. We order beef brisket tacos that are seasoned with amazing South American spices. Stuffed pablano... More

Our server Robyn was very attentive. We ordered Beef Brisket Tacos, Tacos de Chorizo and a Burrito Carne Asada. All very good and... More

This restaurant is the loudest I have ever been to. But if you can deal with that, you will be treated to some of the most delicious food. Amazing salsa and guacamole. The tamales Luna Maya are sensational. Their sangria is a delicious classic. The reason it's so loud and crowded is that the food is so good. This is... More

Great food. Dark inside. Prices range from $11-16. Good date night location. Full bar. All the food is delicious, but the fish tacos and tamales are the best. Very high quality. Local favorite

The best marguirita! the food is uniquely South American with multiple choices. also a great bar scene for the after work crowd. The restaurant is loud (on purpose) to create that atmosphere.
