Good was terrible and service even worse. We ordered guacamole which came with literally 2 chips to scoop with, when asked for more chips we were informed those would be charged extra. What are you supposed to eat the guacamole with???? In addition, all good was over seasoned and not Mexican at all. We ordered fajitas and enchiladas. The fajitas... More

We have been here twice as a family and both times had excellent service - compliments to the friendly, attentive waiting staff. The sizzling chicken and beef fajitas are beautiful, but my favourite has to be the tequila and lime chicken which surprised by being coated in BBQ sauce yet still retaining the taste of the main ingredients. The cost... More

I came to Cueva Maya with low expectations after reading the reviews. Unfortunately, my friends still decided to go there, and the consequence was a rather bad dinner, considering the quality Mexican food can offer. We shared mixed appetizers and I then had the traditional fajitas. The appetizers were nothing special, while the fajitas were plain mediocre, as the meat... More

Hoping to find quality Mexican food in Milan, my family and I went to La Cueva Maya but it was a complete disappointment, the place looks nice and the staff friendly, but the atmosphere is far from Mexican but the worst is the food. I have no idea who might be the Chef, but have no idea of what Mexican... More

I was very disappointed with my visit. In a city like Milan I was expecting restaurants with authentic food from different countries. The staff is extremely nice, very helpful and attentive. However that is as good as it gets. The food is not only not authentic Mexican but it's a bad version of texmex. It seems the restaurant just uses... More

The staff are very friendly and nice and we got an offer for digestive at the end which came for free. Quality of food was really average. According to the high number of Mexican restaurants in Milan, I prefer to stay in the other ones rather than here

Nice mexican food in Milan. Visited several time and food is always fine. Need to book if not eating alone as the place is often packed!

The food are sooo tasty, but make sure you have reservation before coming here, they're gonna be so full and busy, try the meat and fajitas, my Mexican friends said that it's not as tasty as the real mexican food, but from my opinion it's good enough and really worth to try.
