Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They aren’t interesting of customer. Lazy service and the middle class food. Starters are better than main course. I have been there twice and I am not going anymore. Why twices if I don’ t like service. It’s important to give the other possible to...restaurant.More

Friendly services with delicious food. One could come here just for the starters. The options were plentiful and tasty. Restaurant focuses on its core theme and does it well.

A very nice restaurant with good food! The feta cheese is recommended as well as the Beef Fajita. Fresh, tender, tasty. And a friendly service by all 3 waitresses/waiter. What more do you want😉

Extensive menu and very attentive service. Latin American theme obviously but decor not overwhelming. Reasonably priced for what you get. Would recommend.

Disappointing and confusing… Tex Mex style of decor and menu meets fine dining type of dishes. Was recommended to take a chicken salad for main; it’s big and delicious she said but it was quite the opposite. Left the restaurant still hungry.

First the positives: Service was fast, smiling, and polite. Churros we had for dessert very very good. But then: Fajitas we had for mains were bland, salt had been totally forgotten, meat was too well done, and again was lacking spices. And if you serve...fajitas on an iron, make sure its properly hot. Otherwise its just weird. Habanero sauce served on side and additional salt saved a lot. The table had sticky spots, first knife I took for the jar at the table was covered in grease, and plastic plants on the window were covered in dust. A lot could be done in terms of cleaning the place. I would have loved to like it, but now I just can't come up with a reason I would go there and spend 40+ euros for food I could easily make better myself.More

We bought a few starters, and salmon and fajitas for mains. Everything was very good. Was pleasantly surprised how well chevre was in a tex mex dish! Yes, restaurant might be a bit pricey, but we didnt mind. Good comfort food, nice portions, relaxed atmosphere....The service was also good(not many customers this afternoon)Would go again, if in Helsinki.More

Not a bad option for a meal if you are staying in the area. However, the food is far from being Mexican / Latin American. The guacamole was too runny and lacked in flavour, while the beef fajitas looked rather odd with two enormous tortillas...and a meager amount of filling on the side. The chicken chimichurri, once again, lacked in flavour. The margaritas were decent though, as well as salmon ceviche (wish it was a bigger portion). The service was alright. All in all, we enjoyed our meal but we would not be in a hurry to return.More

Yesterday we had dinner @mayabarandgrill a Mexican restaurant. It was a nice surprise. The food itself was good, maybe not as spicy as or Mexican I would have liked, but for a casual restaurant with a laid-back, comfortable, family-friendly ambiance the food was nice👌 especially...I liked 😋 Muslo de polo and Quesadilla con espinacas fantastic + I loved the dessert Churros and Tarta Maya ❤️ I could also say that the portions size were very generous and menu prices were not that experience as well 👌 Lastly, but not at least, I have to thank the staff, the service was fantastic🙏 I can warmly recommend 👌More

The best Mexican meal I’ve had in years. We hadn’t booked (& they were full as it was Saturday night) but we had a drink at the bar and a table soon became available. The food is exceptionally delicious and the portions are very generous....I had the goats cheese fajita which was awesome. I recommend the cocktails too!More

steak tough, red wine sauce was also missing, chicken too salty. There was also no tomato juice in the soup to make a bloody mary. Today, nothing worked, which is a shame, because the place has sometimes been classy.

Great food and service. Maya never ceases to please. If there was one thing I would change is to offer a little more spice to meals than Finns are normally comfortable with. Other than that it’s fabulous and the fajitas are highly recommended
