I received so many recommendations to eat at Chaya Maya. “Not to be missed” “the best place in town” and I am sorry to say that my wife and I were utterly disappointed. For starters, we were turned off by the way the sample dishes...More

You have to try it at least once, we were suggested it several times and once was enough. I had a dish with fish wrapped in banana leaves and it was good. We happened on this place because my husband like seeing the little old...More

We ate here our first night as it was one block from our hotel. We opted to wait 10-15 minutes for a table in the open garden, as the front dining rooms seemed to lack atmosphere. Food was nice, not knock-your-socks-off flavoursome, but to be...More

This restaurant specializes in local food. I have no idea how authentic it is, but the menu is certainly very different from the average Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is nice, the service is fast and the prices are very reasonable. I would certainly recommend it...More

Nice local restaurant with tasty food for reasonable prices. From the menu you can choose cheaper (80 MXN) or more expensive main dishes (150 MXN). They don’t have only tortillas but also other interesting yucatan dishes.

I've been twice now and I believe I'll be going back again & again until we leave Merida. There are just so many fascinating dishes to try, the experience of none of which (so far) I could have guessed. The cream of chaya soup is...More

A very nice place: good atmosphere, friendly staff, nice venue, but first of all - good food! A wide selection of Mexican, and local (from Yucatan) meals - like the lime soup. All worth trying. Some Mexican beers to drink with. Lots of soft beverages.

We found the location and decor (a nice old building) nicer than the other La Chaya Maya. Unfortunately we did not find the same caliber of food or service. The margaritas were sour and served in highball glasses. My husband ordered the Pot-Chuc and it...More

Hello. We went there with my daughter who is a vegetarian. They managed to prepare some things that were quite good although there is no specific vegetarian menu
