By far the best Mexican restaurant in the Vail Valley!

Great addition to the Valley
The food is fantastic and the margaritas magnificent. We were seated in the bar area as the restaurant side was closed, so a bit noisier and sports-bar-ish than we prefer, but same menu. Much better than the predecessor Cima. We'll definitely go back.

The Mexican food of this restaurant was very good. It is like an upscale Mexican restaurant. I didn't like the decoration. Is very dark now compared to the previous restaurant that was in this place. They could make the ambiance of the restaurant a little more brighter because the rustic look just doesn't flow with the beautiful location.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of both the food and service at this much needed high-end Mexican style restaurant in the Vail valley. This is not your typical "beans and tortillas" fare - well crafted menu with three very nice Mole selections and some creative pairings made this a great dining experience. The outside patio was closed (weather) but the views are amazing. Our server Jacki did a great job of patiently explaining the various menu options for us and was very attentive during our dinner.

Our first time at Maya and
Our first time at Maya and it was a big hit. Tuna tartare guacamole was outstanding. Excellent service and a fun place in the mountains. Way to go Westin!

Overall an excellent dinner. Our waiter (Maria?) was delightful, the food complex and interestings with offerings far beyond the usual combination platters. The mole platter, with a choice of four different proteins and three mole sauces was exceptional. Strongly recommended.

Best for true Mexican
This is a great restaurant. Best true Mexican food we have found outside of Mexico. Will make this one of our regular spots. Looking forward to dining there next week.

We are huge Richard Sandoval
We are huge Richard Sandoval fans. We have visited on numerous occasions his Denver restaurants and were excited to hear that he had opened a restaurant in the Westin Beaver Creak Resort. We take a trip out there every year. We had dinner there and the food was fantastic. We had the tableside bacon guacamole, which was fantastic. We followed that with the crab and shrimp enchiladas and the tenderloin. Both entrees were wonderful. Fantastic flavors. We then shared the fried ice cream for dessert and it was fantastic. The drinks were also wonderful. Once again another fantastic meal at a Richard Sandoval restaurant.

Brunch plus margarita plus mountain
What a great surprise to enjoy a wide sweeping view of Colorado mountains while we ate authentic Mexican food. The meal started with table-side guacamole and brunch selection of small portions in several courses from pistole to enchiladas. Our waiter was informative and knew how to pace service.

Not everybody thinks to go to a hotel restaurant.... but I'm so glad we did!! Maya Restaurant is absolutely delicious & authentic!! First timer visit...had an array of starters & margaritas to get a feel for the food....everything was plated beautifully. Outdoor dining was right on the river to include a stormy ski & double rainbow!! Magical.... i highly recommend a trip to Maya!

Mexican not texacan!!
Food with flair and flavor that is reflective of genuine Mexican cuisine. The service was informative and attentive. A spectacular tequila list is complemented by an interesting and adequate wine list - plenty of beer choices for those who want! An overall experience that is very satisfying and repeatable.

Marvelous Meal at Maya
My husband and I chose to dine at Maya on our first night in Avon. We are staying at the Westin which makes this a very convenient spot for us to eat and especially drink. Our server Cory was fantastic! He was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and he made great suggestions! He steered us toward the Tuna Tartare Guacamole which I highly recommend and also the margarita that starts with an "A" of which I cannot recall the name. They were featuring a fajita special that night which was enough for my husband and I to share. The meats were fresh, flavorful and cooked to perfection. We plan on going back to Maya for their Happy Hour before we have to leave Avon.

This "small plates" concept
This "small plates" concept for brunch is brilliant. There were so many amazing choices to choose from, and each plate that came out was unique and prepared perfectly. We can't wait to come back! The waitstaff was extremely competent and professional and nice.

First visit to maya
Food was good, service was terrible. Lighting was too dark and is very loud. Roasted corn soup is a must as are the churros

Best Brunch in Colorado!!!!!
Amazing and delicious brunch! All you can eat sounds funny for an upscale restaurant, but it worked perfect!!! We loved being able to sample a ton of small plates. The value is incredible and it's a ton of fun!!! Absolutely impressive selection of food and drinks, with superb options for carnivores and vegetarians!

Great Mexican restaurant with a flare. Everything was great including the food and I'm not usually a mexican food lover, but the spin they put on their food makes it very special and delicious. Highly recommend!

AY, CARAMBA !!
If you're expecting your run of the mill Mexican fare glued to your plate with cheese and floating in chili sauce...this ain't the place.
This is Modern Mexican with outstanding flavor. The guacamole was prepared at the table and the Ahi added to the texture and flavor. The theme here is depth of flavors. Each dish had just the right amount of heat and the spices and sauces never overwhelmed the meat. We fully enjoyed the carnitas and mole camarone dishes. Maya is a treat for foodies.

Maya--not hitting on all cylinders
Food was very good to excellent. Highly recommend the Carne Asada. House margarita rocked. Service was fair at best. Maya was not overly busy. Davon was our waiter. Lag times between ordering a drink and receiving it were WAY too long. Ordered the table-side guacamole, and it again was WAY too long for the guac guy to arrive. The worst part, and it's what we all remember, is how freaking long it took to get the check, get it corrected as Davon's initial delivery was wrong, and then get our credit cards back so we could sign out. The 15% gratuity was probably overly generous, but the company was good and so was the food. Dennis, the manager, knows how Maya should operate. I am sure had he been dining with us, he'd be more brutal.

We had a great dinner at Maya. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. I had the pork carnitas and they were to die for and the portion size was perfect...if we hadn't eaten so much guacamole and chips. My husband had the seafood enchiladas and really enjoyed those also.

Amazing food, drinks and service!
Our meal was absolutely delicious! The Mercado margarita is one of the best drinks I have ever had, though all the drinks were fantastic. Most notable was the service, the server really seemed to care about our experience. Everyone was friendly, the entire staff smiled and seemed happy. The bar was jumping, very social atmosphere! This is clearly THE place to go in Vail valley.
