Award-winning modern Mexican food at Dubai Marina 23 Reviews

In a city where Latin restaurants tend to err on either the extravagant or the cheap-and-cheerful, Maya proves high-quality food and service does not have to come with a ridiculously high price tag. Be sure to book a seat on the outside terrace overlooking Le Royal Méridien’s impressive green gardens – the restaurant’s interior is a bit sterile, like a dentist’s surgery, and out of character with warm woods and welcoming atmosphere of its exterior. The exciting and varied menu boasts classics such as sizzling fajitas sit side-by-side with braver dishes such as mole pablano, essentially chicken served in a chocolate sauce (worry not, after an initial cocoa shock, the two contrasting flavours begin to work surprisingly well together). Finish dessert and head to the beautiful lounge area for a margarita. While not exactly a hidden gem, Maya deserves to be talked about in the same breath as Dubai’s best Latin dining experiences.
