This is a lovely family run restaurant.Its more on the rustic side than fancy but clean and cute. You can watch the whole family cooking in an open kitchen.

We had great stuffed and crumbed chicken breast, grilled shrimp and delicious black beans. The owner even shared her recipe for black beans with us, humoring our broken spanish.

There were a lot of locals who kept wishing us 'buen provecho' which took us a while to figure out. Everyone was so friendly!

The breakfast is also supposed to be amazing but did not end up trying it.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past 2 years and have never been disappointed. Their menu includes the standard Yucatecan food, plus other items that add enough variety for every taste. The sopa de lima is different from others that I have had; but is an absolute must, when it is available. I have had lots of things from lamb to fish. If you want it prepared different from what is on their menu, they are happy to accommodate. Expect to pay around 50-100 pesos per person. El Taco Maya does not serve alcohol; but I would not consider that a bad thing. You can bring your own at no extra charge.

Do yourself a favor and go into town away from the beach and experience the local vibe. This restaurant is clearly family owned and they treat you with open arms. The menu had standard choices but with very good prices.

Quiet, quaint family run restaurant. Cross the bridge from the playa up the hill right at the police station and it's at the next corner. There were no other diners there tonight...it was just me and the pet rabbit! I had the beef fajitas, served with rice and re fried beans...80 pesos. A good sized portion more than I could eat.

Just a short drive up from bahia principe hotel in Akumal Pueblo, this family run business gave us the experience we were so desperate for - to eat like the mexicans do, in their own surroundings.

Tiny restaurant with a pet rabbit running around, the food was fresh and cooked to order. The tacos were fantastic and the fajitas as well. Ask for a jamaica juice to get a wonderful red sweet fruity squash type drink!

will definately go back!
