We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Maya. The service was fabulous - friendly, attentive, fun, and professional. The view is outstanding and we were there for sunset which was spectacular. The food was delicious and fresh - the calamari deserves a special mention, it was exceptional. The frozen margaritas were so good! The only slight issue was the music was really loud - but it wasn't a big problem. I've already recommended Maya to friends, it was a fabulous experience.

We sat on a tiny table in the middle of so many people. i couldnt hear my sister talk. The food was average but the nachos were horrible. Overall not the best experience. Overpriced and too loud.

Great atmosphere, excellent service and beautifully styled. Unfortunately we found a hair in one dish. We weren't charged for this obviously. The remaining dishes were lovely. The overall experience was great. If you have a problem let the service staff know, they are really helpful.

WOW! I was so impressed by the vibe, drinks, food and ambiance! I will definitely be back to try the rest of the margaritas and the rest of the menu. The serving sizes were great and the salsa to chip ratio was right on the money. The cauliflower queso was out of this world and we found ourselves dreaming of the next time we could come to have more. Highly recommend!!! What a great night!

Lush vibe, awesome welcome, very well looked after by mikey/Mickey? Sorry, was too busy taking everything in to get his name. We arrived at 6.30 just in time to catch the city skyline sunset. Wow. The skyline only got better from there on. Frozen margarita, yum, food so yum, thanks Maya, #memories ♥️

Such a beautiful venue. The service is good, the flavours are yum. Sad that my favourite Margarita the fresco has been taken off the menu. After the menu change most of the margaritas, apart from the classic and Tommy’s are super sweet, not really why I drink margaritas. I also found the prawn entree at mains prices of $28 with nothing else on the plate but three prawns and sauce, a hefty price tag. In saying that our calamari was cooked to perfection. Best to request two dishes at a time though. All our food came out at the same time so the two of us were trying to eat super quick to give the waiters room to put more plates down. Not ideal. I felt like we we’re getting rushed out the door from the moment we got there. All in all it was a pleasant experience, but the view can’t compensate for everything. If I’m paying top dollar for food and drinks I want them to be the focus of my night.

Stuck at the bar for an anniversary lunch right under the speaker. Bumped by other patrons every few seconds as they tried to get a picture for their instagram. The starters were great and the mains were bang average

The food was amazing, the service was a bit odd. Drinks were ordered and then forgotten, and our waiter was a bit "familiar" lots of touching on shoulders and sitting closely to us to talk through the menu which was a bit unnecessary.

We were told when booking that there were 2 set menu options ($45 and $60 options) but after asking our waiter, he had to check with multiple people about what we were talking about it. Once he found out, the set menus weren't written down anywhere, and the waiter sat next to us and tried to point out on the main menu what was on the set menus, expecting us to remember. We didn't necessarily want the set menu, but odd that they offered it and then had no plan to actually allow people to access it. We'ds still go again, the food and the cocktails were amazing.
