Description: 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.

We enjoyed our evening here and we had two cocktails, two mains and an entree for 1750 PHP. Not the cheapest place in town but certainly not the most expensive given the high quality meat on offer. Only downside was the wraps, so small and tasteless. I asked for a Corona or Sol as I saw someone uploaded a photo in September of this to be told they don't offer it and never have, I slightly confused. We also never saw the Tequila menu that seems to be available. Slightly disappointing. We took an uber to get here from the CBD, took a while but going back was a 30 minute walk.

My friend and I enjoyed catching up while having dinner here. Ordered the tacos and quesadillas which were good. It was a bit noisy at the restaurant during that time because of a group that seem to be having a small company event. The service was ok. This place also have great choices for meat lovers and a wide selection of drinks. Left the resto happy and full!

My second visit to Maya. First time was a few years ago and they were running an international quality restaurant like a carenderia on Filipino time. You got what you got when it was ready and if your main was ready before the appetiser then that's what you got. For this reason I kept the order simple. One appetiser and one main and advised the waitress 'Later' for the main. They STILL managed to deliver both at the same time. That aside, the food was impossible to fault. Steak was Jucy, succulent and flaversome. The Mexican rice was to die for. The waiter service has much improved if still not perfected. Definitely worth a visit but perhaps for a small number of guests and keep it simple.

The food here is really good! Good service and big portions. A bit pricy, but would recommend to get a meal here while you are in Cebu.

Nice atmosphere and good service. The food is not that great and high price. The theme is Mexican but the food doesn't fit. The tequila selection is very high cost and only average quality. No bueno amigo
