I went there with my family and we had a bad experience. We bought a groupon coupon and started with a good glass of sangria. We ordered very good nachos but after that the food was not good. The staff was really friendly. However, tacos was terrible and impossible to eat. The dessert was good and saved our night.

We had a very discounted groupon deal for cocktails and tacos and ended up ordering a nachos to share. The cocktails were great, really unusual flavours and really enjoyed. The tacos weren't great, not a lot of flavour, wouldn't bother ordering them. The nachos were pretty great, very authentic and huge servings. Service however is incredibly slow, they are obviously...

We decided to come here as a last minute thing as my brother said he used to come frequently and loved it. We didn't have a reservation so were told we'd need to wait at the bar and we'd be given a table as soon as possible which was completely understandable. We sat at the bar, ordered our food and...

Visited this place due to a coupon purchase. The food was fantastic, the wait staff friendly in explaining the various items on the menu and nice friendly atmosphere. Lots of families and groups, the place does get busy Friday nights and probably weekends, so need to make a booking. Will definitely be back there.

Pro's - Nice meat tacos - Happy hour drink prices are awesome value and the wine not bad. - Atmosphere was good, not too noisy - Groupon deals make it an amazingly cheap dinner Con's - They messed up almost every order. But we just ate the tacos that... More

The tacos all came out cold and I asked them for some warm ones but they brought more cold ones out. And the service was terrible. Tried to order a drink and 3 different waitresses told me that they was not my waitress so couldn't help me. When I was asking the waitress simple questions they didn't understand much English.

Everything about this place works. Great food, cocktails, music, location, value for money. Service could be a tad more attentive. Especially on arrival. However it's small pokey restaurant I guess that's what makes it so sometimes service gets busy.

Me and my friends went here with a groupon voucher. The deal was quite good honestly - all you can eat for less than 20 dollars each. The waiters were all nice and professional. For this I give A. The girls were all very good and professional. Unfortunately the drinks were bad. We had a glass of sangria that was... More

The service is fantastic you get assigned a friendly mexican bird who goes through how the menu works etc. The music and restaurant... More

This place definitely gets kudos for all the marketing they do! The place is well known amongst my network of friends and colleagues simply because of their name is well known - whether it's through groupon deals or being known for the tacos they offer. We visited on a Saturday evening, and unfortunately the lack of food-quality (flavours, ingredients, meat... More

Description
We are rustic, charming and just like that holiday you always want to have but run out of time. Pop in and forget Melbourne for a moment. Our wait staff mostly have a Latin background and will enthusiastically promote the best from 'their' part of the world! Come enjoy our authentic Mexican courtyard, discreetly hidden out back! The food is fresh and tasty, playing with Mexican flavours providing value for money. Fun is what you get at Maya, and lets be fair, fun is why you drink TEQUILA! Our Dinner Menu includes many favourites but with a twist, with the help of local tortilleria El Cielo, authentic Mexican flavours will be ensured. Try the street snacks, 'Antojitos' for something creative that will compliment your drink, or eat many. That's the idea! Our food is designed to share, however if you feel like going solo, and perhaps rising to the claim 'the best Burritos' in town, well please be the judge! We cater easily to the growing needs of gluten intolerant, our tortillas used for the tacos and set menu are gluten free, made only from corn flour. There also many options across the well thought out menu, please ask our waiters who will be more than happy to help.
