I have been here several times for the Happy Hour, also known as "aperitivo" and widely spread in Milan during the evening (you pay 10€ for any drink -alcoholic or not- and there is a complimentary buffet with unlimited food).

The drinks are okay and they have a wide range of cocktails to choose, they also have an-alcoholic cocktails, et cetera.

Regarding the food, there is a lot of variety and everytime I have been, the food was different but always pretty good. They usually serve different kinds of pasta, chicken cooked in different ways, cous-cous, polenta, cake, pizza, fish, etc. They even have a chocolate fountain in which you can dip the fruit or the cake slices.

Another advantage is that is one of the "aperitivos" that close later, since I have been there later than 10PM and they still replenish the food until about 11PM. Bear in mind that in other places at 9:30PM as the latest they stop replenishing the buffet.

P.S.: Even though it is called Maya and it is decorated as a Mexican restaurant, the aperitivo has no Mexican specialities.

there is nothing mexican about this restaurant. and even worse it's insanely expensive for the quality. if you're going to come for the $10 cocktails and all you can eat fried buffet then that's one story, but if you're looking for mexican food you should go to Mexicali, or really anywhere else in Milan.

We were in milan for a 5 days trip and after we discovered the place we came back the next day to eat once more before going back home. The staff is very very nice, the food is great and the price is unbeliveble. Will recomand the place to all friens who r going to visit milan as. Keep going guys. Salutari

Below average quality food. The place was extremely busy and customer turnover seemed to be their highest priority. Wine was terrible.

Hi Patrick,
it's sad that you didn't enjoy the Milanese tradition of aperitivo where you take a cocktail (initially it was Spritz) and have unlimited access on our "all you can eat" buffet and eat in the loud and talkative company of people who happily celebrate the end of a working day.
