I recently visited Isla Mujeres with friends over New Years for a bachelorette party. Jardin Maya was open during the New Years celebration at the city center and offered my friends and I excellent, fast service (and access to their bathrooms!!). They were friendly and made conversation with us in English and Spanish. They did a great job quickly mixing a variety of drinks for the 9 of us during what seemed to be one of the busiest nights of the year. We even came back the next day to visit with the waiters/bartenders and have a few drinks. They welcomed us with free shots of tequila, chips and continued their habit of providing great service to my friends and me. The drinks were delicious and it was a great atmosphere for laid back fun. I only wish we had time to eat here as well. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Isla Mujeres! It seemed like a great place to eat but proved to be an even better place for a nice end of the night beverage as well!

We had a great and authentic dinner of "queso relleno" and "panuchos". Sadly there are just a few good restaurants in the island, and this is an excellent one.
Very casual and inexpensive!

We visited Jardin Maya primarily because it is owned by Miguel's (of Miguel's Moonlite) son and wanted to give Miguel Jr. some business as he had just opened recently. It did not disappoint! The restaurant is clean and has a nice atmosphere - you can either dine inside or out. We both had the cochinitas pibil which was out of this world, generous portions and served with fresh warm tortillas and pickled onion. Service was courteous and prompt (but not rushed) and the drinks were generous and refreshing. We also liked the location - although on Hidalgo, it is on the quiet end closer to the town square, so we got to enjoy our meal without loud music competing all around us. We'd definitely visit again!

The mayan options piqued my interest and it was a good choice. Their beer selection was rather short when we visited. I was looking forward to some regional options but they were all out. The wife is vegetarian and they had cleared marked those options on the menu. She enjoyed the food but after a day of swimming and shopping, thought there wasn't enough and ordered a 2nd dish.
