We were walking downtown searching for a place to eat and happened on Maya. They have a lovely patio which we probably might have enjoyed except for the 96 temp. This is restaurant week and we had a marvelous 3 course meal for $29 each....More

We've become fans of Maya, visiting every time we are in C'ville. We even had my son's rehearsal dinner there. The food is this perfect combination of southern and eclectic and the wine list is amazing. The service is casual and attentive.

Maya has great service and lovely food. We ate a salad, which was exceptional (with garden peas and strawberries) and fried seitan with veg sides. It was delicious. Service was great. It's not cheap, but it's a fine restaurant.
