Nicely decorated, good service and a great change from the overwhelming number of Argentine steak / grill restaurants A person that knows good Tex Mex food will not be impressed. Nachos were like the bottom of the bag (I am sure they were). Guacamole good but small Fajitas tasty but meat over spiced with onions. Should not have served bread... More

We LOVED our dining experience here! A restaurant with a lot of love and care from the decor to the preparation of the delicious food. Our expectations for Mexican food in Argentina were far surpassed with the incredible and unique flavors! Highly recommended!

Attentive and helpful service (a food ingredient we didn't know was brought to the table for us to identify) and tasty Mexican food in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

Really loved our meal here - we had nachos and then shared a main, as the portions were generous! The mojitos are really good! The staff are so friendly and speak English well. One of our best meals in Argentina...Would highly recommend!

A great place with wonderful food and music. Have good options for vegetarians. the staff is super nice and was also willing to make the plates to our taste (for example, with not much cheese). Very recommended!

I've been traveling through South America for 4 months now and this is the best Mexican food I've had so far! The tacos and fajitas are delicious. Everything is reasonably priced as well. And it's located just off the main street going through town.

I loved my visit to this place! I wanted some Mexican food so bad. To be more specific I was craving some really hot Mexican Food and I got it at Ay Ay Ay Maria. The atmosphere in this place is really nice, the music, the service and of course the food are all perfect ingredients to make this restaurant... More

Nice attempt at Mexican food in western Argentina. Nice margaritas if not a little strange with the maracuya and frenet ones, the fajitas de cerdo were really nice, the tortillas were another good attempt at Mexican, but not quite right. The beans were undercooked and they don't serve the fajitas on sizzling platters. The guacamole was great, the pico de... More

Very nice Mexican food. We had the chicken fajitas which were great and the chicken enchiladas which were lovely but covered on a thick layer of cheese which I had to scrap off. I would go back again

Good Mexican food in an unexpected place. In the most beautiful place in Patagonia Argentina. Ay ay ay Maria is a different place to enjoy an authentic cusine in a relaxed and warm environment,of course, accompanied by some happy drinks or maybe a local beers.Buena comida mexicana en un lugar inesperado. En el lugar mas lindo de la Patagonia Argentina los espera un lugar diferente donde disfrutar en un ambiente relajado y cálido de una cocina bien autentica, acompañado por unos alegres tragos o quizas una cerveza artesanal.
