This place is like a hidden gem. The meals were fantastic and the service wonderful. The setting is quiet enough for either small or larger groups.

We ate every meal at the Mayan Bistro, connected to the Hotel Aventura Mexicana, where we were staying for the 8th time. You do not have to be a guest of the Hotel in order to eat here. It's a Trip Advisor top-rated restaurant, and they get many walk-ins. We have never been disappointed with the food at this restaurant.... More

Mayan Bistro at Aventura Mexicana is a nice find with a balanced menu, quality food and great service (Gabby especially!). We're staying at the hotel but as much as we like to explore many different places, this place is a destination restaurant - well priced and they serve an excellent breakfast too!

We had a party of nine for Thanksgiving dinner. The food and service was impeccable! The ambiance outdoors is lovely and the wait staff eager to please. Prices are in line with other restaurants in the area. My friends have been patrons for years had their anniversary dinner there as well as Thanksgiving and now I'm hooked. Thank you again... More

I highly recommend Mayan Bistro for both the food and service -- with a special thank you to servers Rod and Mayeli. We frequently ate here on vacations in 2016 and 2013.

We spent nine days in Playa and ate at the Mayan Bistro several times. The food was excellent and so was the presentation. The service was superior. Dora, Mayeli, Rodimiro and Sara were all totally attentive and accommodating. We recommend it without any hesitation!

Very nice setting, yet pricey. Menu had various unusual items. The poolside bathroom was a turn-off. The hotel guests started smoking, spoiling the end of the dinner
