Latin American
Mayas Restaurant is a captivating Latin dining experience with exciting social rhythms. We feature the cuisines of multiple countries of Latin American, but rather than simply transferring dishes we pay compliment to the ingredients that are natural to Latin America. Our food is prepared from scratch using classic and modern techniques but always remembering the aromas and flavors of our mother's and grandmother's kitchen. We invite you to choose your own escapade by selecting from our Plantains, Ceviches, Empanadas, Curries, Steaks, and Small Plates for a multi-course dining experience.

    Valentine’s Day prix fixe but when we showed up they said they overbooked so we had to wait about 20 mins to be seated, and I wish they had offered us a drink while we waited but they were too busy. When we sat the menu was slightly different and they were out of the main entree we both wanted. Server and host were super friendly but you could tell they were short staffed so not their fault. All in all was a good meal but may not be back

    We had lunch a couple of months ago with adult kids and grandkids- a party of 8 - at Maya’s and loved it! We tried lots of different dishes and loved them all. Last night we went with our adult grandson and his fiancé and shared 2 ceviches, another starter and then enchiladas! All superb as were the Caipirinhas!!

    We had the most amazing meal at Mayas! The Tuna Tartar was the best I have ever had. There was an explosion of flavor. I had a Mojito and my wife had a Margarita that were both over the top. The rest of the meal was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We can not wait to make our way back! 10/10

    This restaurant is always spot on. From the amazing cocktail menu, which I recommend the spicy watermelon Margarita, to a great selection of appetizers and entrées, Maya’s never disappoints. Definitely a hidden gem which I enjoy often.

    Went for Xmas dinner…Food was fantastic, vibe was great, drinks were outstanding…The sauce for the Dorado with Fried Mahi was delicious! Service was good, but maybe since it was Xmas night, they were a lil short staffed (Really not complaining, just an observation) Would definitely go again!

    The pre-Thanksgiving crowd was in full effect. There were several large parties, but the servers were still very attentive to our party of two. This is a small place with fresh ingredients; so, this is not a typical place. It's a gem!

    Mayas is my favorite restaurant. The staff treat me like I am a part of the family. I have never had a bad meal there. FYI, this is a small place with fresh ingredients; so, it the place is busy, things may take a little longer than you expect. It's worth the wait!

    Drinks and food was amazing!!! Very fresh and the portion will not disappoint! We had a new server, and he was very friendly and attentive. Our negative issue was the hanging lights. They were on a timer and would blink, which was distracting.

    There was a part of my order that they were out of. They just added mor shrimp instead of telling me and letting me make the decision to change my order or go with the extra shrimp. And the shrimp were grilled so hard the texture was almost like cardboard. I was disappointed. The last time I was there my meal was perfect, and the service was great.

    I very rarely post a review immediately after trying a new restaurant but we were so impressed with the food, service and overall experience at Maya’s that I felt it necessary to give it a glowing review. We are New Orleanians who enjoy trying out restaurants and we were surprised to find out that Mayas has been around for 16 years. This is a hidden gem. Our waitress was spectacular… helpful, fun, courteous and not shocked with the amount of food we kept ordering as we were determined to try so many wonderful dishes. We started with lots of various appetizers (tuna tartar ceviche was amazing along with the beef empanadas and the bacon wrapped Maduros). The seafood tostones were fabulous. I had a small sample of the beef churrasco entree (because I was so stuffed) which was superb and our son loved his enchiladas verde as his entree. We will certainly be coming back to Mayas to try more of the appetizers and entrees that we just couldn’t get to tonight. This was by far the best restaurant in Nola we’ve been to in a couple of years.
