Beautiful looking restaurant and mostly nice staff. Don't think they were happy with kids dining there! Our waiter was getting frustrated by my questions about which menu items were gluten free and it was also hard to hear because of the noise in the restaurant and he had an accent (european) so it was difficult to understand what he was saying. Meals were tiny for their price and drinks expensive. Glad we tried it out but would not go back.

Food was really good - all of the margaritas we tried were excellent! A really good and diverse menu, not just the usual Tex-Mex suspects.

Maya has is a modern Mexican restaurant. It was soooo hot during the day I would not recommend going to Maya for lunch. The food was great, I would like to return for dinner when it is cooler and more enjoyable. The venue is not airconditioned.
A girlfriend was at Maya at the same time with another friend and left due to the heat before they ordered their food.
Overall a worthwhile stop for a casual bite to eat with atmosphere and flavor.

Great views of the city. The food was nice. But not really good value for money.
Service was very average. The price you pay for a meal, drinks etc. I would expect much better service!

Did not honour booking. Previous table ran over their booking and the venue manager made us wait for 45mins before seating us. When we were finally seated, we were told the kitchen was about to close.
Being a previous customer of Eleven and having hosted my child’s christening there, I can truly say this experience has forever sullied any memories of this new venue, Maya.
I host a lot of client events in Brisbane and will definitely never be looking at this venue again.

Always loved Bar 11 and love Maya Mexican. Staff are always so lovely and attentive. Food and drinks are always great and most importantly delicious. Only problem I had was the noise level. At 1230pm you’re generally going to a restaurant to eat and converse. Whilst it would have been boring without the music maybe a decibel or two lower for that time of day. But overall great experience! Recommend the jalapeño margarita and the pork tacos! Ooh and the nachos. Ooh and the cauliflower queso, delist!

We understood the 2 hour limit and did not need constant reminding that we were running out of time, especially when there was no one waiting for the table & other booths empty.
