Having received a Groupon voucher for Margaritas and Tacos for 2 for my birthday I was excited to see what Maya had to offer. Unfortunately very little of the evening was even satisfactory, let alone exciting. We arrived at about 7.15 and didn't get out until about 10:30. We would still probably be there if we'd had to actually pay... More

The service was terrible, i was delivered a single Taco every 20 mins. I got the groupon deal for all you can eat tacos for $9, i thought it was a great offer until it took 2 hours to get 6 tacos, i was left very hungry. The tacos weren't even that good either, next time ill make my own... More

Staff here are very friendly and efficient. Food is good overall. However, this is NOT the place to order dessert. Terrible chocolate mousse.

the place is very small, and is very busy (even on a wednesday night). Gave off a good vibe with the mexican theme, waitresses were very friendly. food was a let down, tacos very small and hard to eat.

Although i am giving this place a average review that is not to say that it wasn't good value. Melbourne has a great many excellent Mexican restaurants (Si senor on Carlisle street for one) and this place is more of a cheap and cheerful option. The food was fine and very good value for a nice mid week date with... More

The food is not bad, (we had a groupon voucher) the tacos were quite tasty but small. The margaritas and cocktails were fantastic. I agree that there are probably better Mexican restaurants however I would come back. Word of warning that the place is small and does get busy so be prepared to wait. We had no problems but I...

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.

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.
