Amazing Yucateca food restaurant, with authentic local food. We had a delicious meal here, the tortillas were freshly made and we sat outside at a beautiful patio.

Unique Mayan dining experience! Shared the half chicken, it is there specialty, it is like nothing I've ever tried before and it is definitely big enough to share.

First to Review

Known as one of the best restaurants in Merida, La Chaya Maya became one of our favourite places to eat. The restaurant is near the centre, ladies in traditional dress are preparing fresh, handmade tortillas while you wait for your meal. We went with a friend and ordered a whole bunch of traditional Yucatecan dishes, including Queso Relleno, a ball of edam cheese stuffed with meat and herbs, served in a creamy white sauce. It doesn’t sound very Mexican but is a local speciality, and it didn’t disappoint. Definitely try the chaya agua fresca, the green juice everybody in there is drinking.

Precios agradables y la comida yucateca típica en ocasiones hay bastante gente y si llega a Neruda en sábado es un buen lugar para cenar y luego recorrer la plaza por los diferentes shows que hacen

Ubicado en el corazón de Mérida, cerca del Parque Santa Lucía, este restaurante es perfecto para catar lo mejor de la gastronomía local en un ambiente distendido y con una atención excelente. El menú es variado e incluye sopas, panuchos, salbutes, tamales, empanadas o el famoso cochinita, que es uno de los favoritos de los yucatecos. Muy buena relación calidad-precio.

Un paraíso foodie al que querrás volver una y otra vez. No voy a mentir, de tan sólo acordarme de la sazón de los platillos del menú de La Chaya Maya quiero volver a Mérida en cuanto me sea posible. Y es que más allá de utilizar los ingredientes locales en los platillos más típicos de la región de Yucatán, este restaurante tiene ese sabor casero que pocos establecimientos grandes llegan a tener. Del festín te recomiendo los Panuchos, la Cochinita Pibil, el relleno negro y la Sopa de Lima.

Lancomida tradicional es deliciosa. La atención nones la mejor, son amables pero muy lentos y desorganizados y el lugar no es bello. Pero se come muy bien.
