Dined there during our visit to the Bourbon Trail. Menu was creative and the food was delicious. There was something for everyone from meat eaters to vegetarians. Highly recommend

I have dined here several times, and I will keep going back. It's a popular restaurant for a good reason and hits a home run in every aspect - ambiance, service, and quality of food. You will be glad you discovered this restaurant in NuLu!

Everything is delicious-the mole, the salmon, the salutes ..... but you must get the lima beans as a side and anything with squash blossoms.

Mayan Cafe is reasonably priced and consistently excellent. Their famous Lima beans use ground pumpkin seeds and are unlike anything I’ve ever had elsewhere. Fabulous.

The food and service are both superb. The prices are on the upper end but it worth it. Had a dinner there for my wife's birthday - just 2 of us. We both enjoyed the experience.
